The Louise in the Barossa Valley is known for offering absolute luxury accommodation, featuring inspired design with private spaces, generous ensuites and breathtaking vineyard views. It’s where our luckiest travellers head to stay when they’re looking to experience the best of the Barossa. And when they get hungry? Appellation next door offers a world class dining experience, at one of South Australia’s best restaurants. It’s known for its incredible food.
A little known fact however, is that The Louise has it’s own little place to grab a drink or some food. The Sunset Terrace and Wine Bar is adjacent to Appellation and next to their kitchen garden. You can relax in a deep cushioned lounge on their terrace with a pre-dinner drink while watching the glorious South Australian sunset, or choose a raised stool or banquette in the indoor wine bar and indulge with snacks and a wide range of beers, wines by the glass or cocktails. You can even grab a club sandwich. Which, by all accounts, is ONE OF THE BEST CLUB SANDWICHES IN AUSTRALIA!
