Recently I found myself enjoying a coffee with a friend at Keil’s Fine Food in the main street of Tanunda – they make my mocha just the way I like it.
We had a great time reminiscing the year gone by and talking about all the fun things we got up to. One event in particular stuck in our minds…The Girl Talk Lunch at The Farm.
This event was created by a group of young influential and gifted women of the Barossa. Their aim was to provide an opportunity for the “Girls” of the region to network and enjoy good food and wine all while raising money for the Smith Family. As it turns out over $5,000 was raised on the day through auctions and raffles. I am proud to say I contributed by picking up a lovely art piece for my new house by a local artist.
Everyone was there, from winemakers and cellar hands through to business owners and their staff. I was fortunate enough to be on a table full of artists and designers of the Barossa. It was amazing to see so many talented ladies in one room. The great thing about a gathering like this is that no matter how long you have been in the Barossa, be it five days or five generations you are always greeted at events by a sea of welcoming faces all eager to make you one of the bunch.
Being the first warm day of the season everyone had frocked up to celebrate. The only thing looking better than us on the day were the proud peacocks strutting their stuff along the windows of the function centre as we listened to guest speaker and Adelaide entrepreneur, Lucy MacGill. Lucy spoke about the importance of hard work, focus and family in relation to her business Angel Wings. This is something we could all connect to as we work together to show off the Barossa and its hidden talents.
