A Barossa cellar door for lovers of chocolate

The Barossa Valley will tomorrow say hello to a new cellar door for chocolate lovers.

Barossa Valley Chocolate Company will become the first chocolaterie and cellar door in South Australia's most famous wine region.


Located in the heart of the Barossa Valley just outside of Tanunda, the Barossa’s newest tourist attraction is surrounded by vineyards that produce fruit  for Vineyard Road, whose wines are also available at the cellar door.

The $5.5 million chocolaterie and cellar door houses a state-of-the-art chocolate kitchen. 

Barossa Valley Chocolate Company CEO Chris Day, and his wife Sandy, travelled 100,000km around the world to sample the best chocolate experiences from the sweetest meccas - including Bruges and Florence - to seek inspiration. 

"The world-class Barossa Valley Chocolate Company has been inspired by the very best experiences from across the globe, from Bariloche in Argentina, to Napa Valley in the USA and the Chocolate Line in Bruges," Sandy said.

"Much of what you see in store was inspired by our travels, like our chocolate wall that was inspired by the inimitable Venchi Cioccolato e Gelato in Florence."


The facility will feature a range of more than 250 products for chocolate lovers. 

“There will be something for everyone, from watching chocolatiers making the artisan, hand-made chocolate through the viewing windows in the retail area, to chocolate-making classes in the special experience room, and a specially curated chocolate and wine pairing experiences in the cellar door,” Sandy said.

There is also an ice creamery serving freshly made gelato and the 150-seat Benni's Café, which will be serving locally sourced food. 

The complex also has a deck overlooking a lake, a private cellar, an amphitheatre and landscaped areas. 

Barossa Valley Chocolate Company will be open daily 9am-5pm at 64 Burings Road, Tanunda. www.barossavalleychocolates.com.au

Exploring the wonders of this city is made all the more enjoyable with a hyper-efficient rail network connected the city’s 23 wards. The vast majority of Tokyo hotels are within a few minutes’ walk of a train station or two, meaning visitors to this city have less time to worry about how to get around and more time to enjoy themselves. The JR Yamanote train line boasts the city’s most popular areas.

Hotel Sardonyx Ueno Reviews

If you really want to save some money and are just looking for a place to lay your head in the evenings, this newly renovated business hotel is a good choice. It’s a short walk south of JR Ueno and Keisei Ueno Stations, and very close to Ameya Yokocho Arcade.

Rooms are small but reasonably comfortable. There’s a restaurant where you can eat the breakfast that comes with your room rate. The staff tries hard to please. Everything is spiffy and new.

Due to the low prices, this hotel attracts bus groups and other budget tourists. Soundproofing could be better, so you may hear guests next door or in the hallway.

The main selling point here is the price: It’s among the cheapest decent hotels in Tokyo. So, if you don’t mind staying in Ueno and only want a place to sleep for a couple of nights, this is a good bet.

Best Choice Tokyo Airport Transport
The Takeaway

Tokyo is served by two airports: Narita International Airport (NRT) and Haneda Airport (HND). Both airports serve international flights.Haneda is closer and more convenient to Tokyo but has fewer international connections.The best way between Narita and Tokyo is the JR Narita Express or N'Ex (Y3,020, 65 minutes). You can use a Japan Rail Pass to travel on the JR Narita Express. A Japan Rail Pass is definitely worth getting if you're visiting more than one city in Japan - see my comprehensive Japan Rail Pass guide to understand how it will save you money.Another option is the Keisei Skyliner which you can book online with GoVoyagin. See below for details and more options.The best way between Haneda and Tokyo is the Tokyo Monorail Line (Y490, 13 minutes on fastest trains) or a taxi (about Y6,000, 30 to 45 minutes). See below…
