Foxey's: For an adults only wine experience


Today we went to the amazing Whitehill Gallery today for Elena Ryazanoff's exhibition opening and they owners were so welcoming. They were particularly lovely to the children present and made no fuss, which allows parents and children to relax and of course all usually goes smoothly.

We later moved onto Foxey's Hangout after the gallery, hoping for food, wine and coffee.

Wine and food


I was the first to order in our large group and as a driver, ordered a coffee to start with but was promptly told 'no wine, no coffee'. I was a bit confused thinking they had run out of both but Foxey's then added: 'we are NOT a cafe!'. They then noted we were the 'group with children'. Having been to many wineries in the Barossa Valley South Australia, I was quite stunned that I had to explain that I was driving and most likely the only one not drinking. They conceded it was okay for 'me' to have a coffee then. Golly. Perhaps they didn't realise how much coffee I can put away? Perhaps having such lovely wines on offer for $8 for tastings frustrates them that anyone would even want coffee?



They did have interesting food available at $11 a plate, which was cooked in front of you behind the counter. I do enjoy watching that process and having it freshly cooked in full view. Our group loved what was on offer and commented on the taste continuously.

As we didn't stay long, I was unaware of what Foxey's had to offer. Winemaker Michael Lee offers private tutorials on the final stages of wine making in the production of fine sparkling wines.

The view from Foxey's is stunning and I would advise going without children, as the decking has not been designed to accommodate the smaller ones safety if indeed we did get lovely weather and the doors were opened.
