Barossa gem gets a polish

The Louise has long been one of the most luxurious places to stay in the Barossa - and it has just reopened with new owners and new look.

Now owned by Baillie Lodges, the new-look The Louise has been given a $3 million makeover.

Visitors to The Louise and restaurants Appellation and the new Contour (formerly three75) will be greeted by a stylish new vibe.

Designs by South Australia-based architect Max Pritchard include sweeping curved walls which open up the main lodge and offer views hills and vineyards.

There is also a lounge-cum-gallery space with deep club-style chairs.

Artworks have been commissioned from South Australian artists Emma Hack, Janelle Amos and Renee de Saxe.

Baillie Lodges has welcomed executive chef Asher Blackford to the helm in the kitchen, fresh from a stint at sister property Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge on Vancouver Island and formerly from flagship property Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island.

Contour, meanwhile, features intimate booths, a counter seat bar, a menu of favourites and a list of wines, local brews and cocktails.

The Louise wine collection has been granted a showcase alongside the guest lounge with a timber and glass prism holds more than 800 wine bottles.
