EXAMPLE BAROSSA WINE TOUR ITINERARY
1 off to the Barossa Valley
Your host will meet you at your city accommodation around 9:15am, along with any other guests that may be joining you for the day. Your journey takes you North through the agricultiral belt, home to the farmers who supply Adelaide’s buzzing restaurant scene. You’ll get to meet your group as your guide gets to know you all and what you’d like to experience on tour.
Ramshackle ironstone buildings and rusty old farming equipment line the cobbled backstreets of Tanunda. You’ll pass remnants from the pioneering days as you roll into the historic township turned family owned winery – Langmeil.
Here you’ll taste a range of everyday wines made in a traditional full-bodied style. It’s an introduction to the wines the Barossa is known for, and what you’d expect to find at most retailers.
An ever popular destination for food-lovers from all over the globe, we think Maggie’s is the most visited destination in the Barossa! Explore the original set of her popular TV show while you refresh your palate tasting from a range of her traditional recipe jams, relishes, preserves, pates, dukkha, and more.
Relaxing under the dappled sunlight on the vine-covered deck at Murray St you’ll definitely feel like you’re living the life of luxury! Here you’ll get to taste the same traditional Barossa wine varieties as at Langmeil but in a lighter, easy-drinking style generally made to drink now.
5 Harvest Kitchen Seasonal Lunch
Perched on the hillside overlooking the vineyards, Harvest Kitchen has the most enviable location of any Barossa restaurant. Here you’ll enjoy a seasonal feast sourced from local farmers wherever possible. Taste the flavours that define the region and have made this one of South Australia’s best regional restaurants (all dietaries catered for).
Organically farmed, minimal intervention wines, made by hand in a solar-powered winery – Izway are leading the way when it comes to sustainability. This small family owned winery has a wealth of top-level winemaking experience under their belt and produces some of the Barossa’s most forward thinking wines. Who knew organic vegan wines could be this good!
When you think of Barossa wine you think premium Shiraz, and what better way to end the perfect Barossa wine tour than at Shiraz specialist Two Hands! Sourcing and vinifying Shiraz from vineyards across South Australia in seperate batches, you’ll explore the different ways Shiraz can present itself in the glass. Not only that, but their shady sun-deck is the perfect spot to watch the sun dip towards the horizon. When you’re all done, you’ll head back to Adelaide for around 5:30pm.
