1 off to the Adelaide Hills
Your host will meet you at your city accommodation where your journey will begin around 09:30am. Your journey will take you East, snaking your way along the stunning Hills ridgeline through Cleland Conservation Park to the Adelaide HIlls.
Start your day of indulgence with a wine tasting at boutique Adelaide Hills producer Deviation Rd Wines. Run by husband and wife team Hamish & Kate Laurie, Deviation Rd are known for producing some of the best sparkling wines in Australia. Not to be outdone, their still wines are also lovingly crafted to an outstanding quality.
The cold nights, clean air, and green grassy fields make the Adelaide Hills a very happy place to be a cow, and what better place to run a boutique fromager than up in the HIlls with them! Udder Delights have fast become one of South Australia’s most highly award-winning cheesewrights in a short space of time. Enjoy a tasting plate of some of their best produce at their new home in Grunthal.
4 Lunch at Mt Lofty ranges vineyard
Sit on the sundeck overlooking the stunning Hills vineyards or next to a cozy roaring fireplace. There’s simply no better venue to enjoy a lunch in the Adelaide Hills, no matter the season. Consistently winning awards for their ever-canging seasonal menu, the restaurant sources produce from local farmers and pairs dishes with their hand-crafted estate grown wines (all dietaries catered for).
5 Time in Hahndorf
Hosting a wide selection of boutique outlets ranging from chocolatiers to candlemakers, artist residences to handmade beauty products, there’s an abundance of creativity to explore on the quaint streets of Hahndorf. Filled with traditional German styled cottages and shady tree-lined streets, this is one of Adelaide’s most popular day-trip destinations for good reason!
