Emerging from Covid-19; time to enjoy a wine tour once more!


Based in Adelaide our brands Taste the Barossa, Taste the McLaren, and See Adelaide and Beyond offer a fabulous range of day touring options. Our guests love our tours, our itineraries, our tour guides, and our service. How do we know this? Because our tours continue to attract fabulous reviews and feedback with over 1500 5-star excellent reviews between Trip Advisor and Google!!


The Covid-19 Pandemic has been an un-nerving and worrying time for people from every walk of life, and every one of us has been affected in some way shape or form. Tourism and travel has of course been massively affected, with many people having to cancel their longed-for travel plans due to uncertainty and International and Domestic border closures.


Following the closures and uncertainty around travel, we at Taste the Barossa and See Adelaide and Beyond understood the necessity to maintain outstanding quality and service by ensuring that all our guests who held future bookings with us were refunded quickly. We recognised that having to cancel plans is hard enough without then being made to wait for refunds.


How have we prepared for a Covid-safe return on our Small Group Wine Tours?


Covid-19 has impacted our business too and this has meant a period of closure for us. While we have been un-able to operate our tours, we have been busily readying ourselves to come back bigger and better. Part of this process has been to ensure that when we re-open for business the travel experience with Taste the Barossa, Taste the McLaren, and See Adelaide and Beyond is Covid-Safe.



We have introduced more stringent cleaning procedures, with all our vehicles receiving thorough internal cleaning following each day tour. Our tour buses are also now fitted with hand sanitizing stations helping our guests maintain hand hygiene recommendations. We have also been working closely with our Winery Cellar Door partners to ensure that all our guests have a fabulously enjoyable experience whilst also being able to adhere to Covid-19 rules keeping everyone Covid-safe.

From the 20th July 2020 South Australia will be re-opening Domestic Borders. This news is hugely exciting as we will be able to welcome our Interstate guests back onboard our small group tours for fabulous sightseeing and wine tasting experiences. Jump on our website and book your tour now!

Barossa Valley Wine Tours

Experience the best food and wine region in Australia with Taste The Barossa Valley wine tours.

By Dallas Coull Taste The Barossa Wine tours
Located a mere 60 kilometres from the centre of Adelaide, this world famous region has so much on offer that tourists and locals alike go there over and over to have a unique and memorable experience each time. In our opinion the Barossa Valley is definitely the best region for food and wine in Australia for many reasons.
Here are the top 7 reasons ….

The history

Some of the oldest vineyards in the world are located in the Barossa Valley. In the late 1800’s there was an outbreak of phylloxera (an insect that feeds on grapevines) that decimated much of the European grapevines. Through hard work and a little bit of luck the Barossa has never suffered from this infestation. At Langmeil Winery there is the opportunity to walk along-side one of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in the world!

The passion

The Barossa isn’t made up of businesses and employees, it’s made up of families… some of whom have been there for over seven generations! When a Barossa person becomes successful, like Peter Lehmann for example, he doesn’t buy a big house down in Adelaide or up in Queensland, he builds a nice house next to the one he grew up in! The Barossa is in the blood of the people who make it special.

The people

Wolf Blass, Peter Lehmann, Maggie Beer, Grant Burge are all names that ooze quality and passion. These are just a few of the many that have dedicated their lives to their products and now dominate the food and wine landscape in the Barossa Valley.

The products

From award winning wines at many of the wineries to award winning food, the Barossa continues to breed internationally recognised and successful producers. The list is impressive and growing each year!


This is a reasonably new term for those on the fringes of the wine industry – however for those in the Barossa, this is central to what makes it special. There are sub-regions in the Barossa Valley that can deliver both a beautiful cool climate Riesling with all the zesty fruit characteristics as well as a full bodied Shiraz. Each region has its own climate and sub-climate that is ideal for many different varieties of grapes used in the wine making process.

The grapes

The Barossa is made up of over 800 families that grow grapes commercially. These families have over 150 years of knowledge about the relationship between the land, climate and the grapes, as well as the many and varied techniques used to grow them. Some families grow their grapes in a single tier format, some double. Some prune differently, some plant things in between the rows in winter and spring, like wheat or broad-beans and plough that into the ground to enrich the soil. After so many generations each family have fine-tuned their methods to make the best quality grapes for their vineyard.

The community

Whether its Tanunda or Nuriootpa, Angaston or Greenock, the Barossa Valley is very welcoming and the sense of community is everywhere. The enthusiasm and passion for the region in both the food and wine industries is palpable, bringing tourists back again and again!
The Barossa’s food and wine are elements of the community that people are passionate about and happy to share! If you’re a South Australian and haven’t been for a while, check it out on a long weekend as there are always new, interesting festivals and gatherings going on. If you are from interstate, it is always great to compare the Barossa to other wine regions around Australia. For the overseas travellers, the South Australian experience is not complete until you visit and enjoy one of our Barossa Valley wine tours.
