Explore the Barossa Valley with Taste the Barossa and you will enjoy a day tasting some of the best food and wine in Australia.
We start the day at a relaxing 9am picking you up at your accommodation or a pre arranged point in Adelaide or Glenelg (8.30am). We make our way out of Adelaide through the Adelaide Hills with our first stop the famous Whispering Wall where you will be fascinated by its famous acoustic qualities.
Our first winery is the beautiful and historic Château Yaldara, this is one of the most photographed buildings in South Australia and no trip to the Barossa Valley is complete without getting a photo in front of this iconic building.
Our trip continues with a cruise through some of the most picturesque scenery in the Barossa Valley. We cross the world famous Jacobs Creek as we head toward the heart of the Barossa Valley, the beautiful and historic township of Tanunda. We have time to wander up the main street and visit some local shops and points of interest, a perfect place to find a souvenir or a coffee.
Lunch is a regional highlight. While we enjoy some of the Barossa’s most internationally acclaimed wines at the beautiful Peter Lehmann winery a platter of the best meats, cheeses, olives, assorted vegetables and freshly baked bread the Barossa Valley has to offer is brought to your table. (There is a great vegetarian regional plate option also)
After lunch we take a leisurely stroll to one of the most historic and beautiful wineries in the Barossa, Langmeil is home to the oldest known Shiraz vineyard in the world. We walk along this vineyard and into their rustic cellar door where we enjoy their world famous Barossa wines.
From Langmeil our next stop is the Mengler’s Hill Lookout where we take in the panoramic and breath taking views over the beautiful Valley.
Continuing on we make our way though the Barossa Valley and feast our eyes on the beauty of the famous Seppeltsfield region. We view the iconic Seppeltsfield winery which ties in perfectly with the last winery we visit for the day.
We finish our day at Murray Street Vineyards on the opposite side of the Barossa Valley to where we started. This is one of the smaller wineries we visit however it has one of the greatest stories in the Barossa Valley. Owner and chief winemaker Andrew Seppelt is a 6th generation Barossa wine maker and brings together all his family’s local knowledge with lessons he learnt while working in the famous wine regions of France and the U.S.A. Murray Street Vineyards is a wonderful blend of the old and new world. With a little luck Andrew might pop in and you can ask one of the brightest wine making stars in the Barossa some questions.
This tour blends historical wineries, wonderful regional food, breath taking scenery and the people that make the Barossa Valley a truly world class region, this is a day you are bound to enjoy.
Return to Adelaide around 5-5.30pm
