FOOD & WINE TOUR ITINERARY
1 off to the Adelaide Hills
Your host will meet you at your city accommodation where your journey will begin around 09:30am. All of our local guides are trained wine experts who will help you unlock the secrets of the Adelaide Hills and better understand all things wine.
Your journey will take you East, snaking your way along the stunning Hills ridgeline and through Cleland Conservation ParK.
The expansive views at Mt Lofty, from the Southern vales across Adelaide City itself and out to the sea are, quite frankly, breathtaking. You’ll also catch a glimpse of the Piccadilly Valley from the East viewpoint. If you’re really lucky, you’ll have a close encounter with the local wildlife!
Meandering down a dirt road flanked by verdant vineyards, you’ll arrive to the hilltop tasting room at The Lane Vineyard. Seated in their glass-wrapped tasting room with uninterruped views over the region, you’ll enjoy a cheese and wine matching experience to begin your day of indulgence.
Over the last 20 years, Shaw + Smith have become one of the Adelaide hills most popular wineries and it may just have something to do with their tasting expereince. Seated out on the sun deck looking across the vineyards, your host will guide you through their range of wines matched with more locally produced cheeses.
5 Lunch at The Haus
Sit on the sundeck overlooking the bustling Hahndorf Main St or next to a cozy roaring fireplace. There’s simply no better venue to enjoy a lunch in Hahndorf, no matter the season. With a great selection of traditional German classics alongside your all-Australian favourites there’s something for everyone at ever-popular The Haus (all dietaries catered for).
6 Time in Hahndorf
With 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!
7 Hahndorf Hill Choco-Vino
In a glass framed balcony jutting out over the vines, you’ll feel like you’re in the vineayrd at Hahndorf Hill. Their ChocoVino experience matches boutique Adelaide Hills wines to the world’s most acclaimed chocolate.
What better way to end a day of pure indulgence before a short drive back to your accommodation for around 5:30pm.
Highly recommend Small Batch wine tours! Matthew is exceptional from his first communication to the wonderful day we spent wine tasting throughout the hills. We can’t wait to book another... read more
