Start your day with a collection at your door from either a hotel or other accommodations within Adelaide area. Learn a little about the history of Adelaide, South Australia, and the iconic Barossa Valley as you travel in comfort in a modern vehicle fleet on your way to the spectacular wine region. Your first cellar door visit for the day will be Dell’Uva Wines. Guests will enjoy a truly unique offering at this boutique cellar door, which provides a taste of what the Barossa Valley is becoming more and more known for. Dell'uva offers a different take on the status quo, with one of the largest collections of varietals in the country. With more than 40 different European varietals, you will expand your appreciation of what the valley can offer beyond the classic big reds of Shiraz and Cabernet. This venue also showcases the forgotten art of amphorae (fermentation in wax-lined clay pots), and there is plenty to learn and lots to sample. Next up, you experience the majesty of the Seppeltsfield Winery Estate, a historic icon of the Barossa, and an integral part of its storied history. Learn the story of the Seppelt family, the phenomenal fortified wines upon which they have built their reputation, and taste a broad range of their current wine offerings. Don’t forget to ask about the Centennial collection, the only wine collection of wines of its type in the world with more than 120 years of consecutive vintages currently stored in the barrel. Guests will continue their exploration of the Seppeltsfield Estate’s varied wonders with a visit to Vasse Virgin, a marvel of natural products based on virgin olive oil. Treat your skin to these all-natural products or taste the wonders of Australian-made virgin olive oil. A beautiful collection of skin & body care products, gourmet food, and a great place to pick up a special gift for the loved ones that couldn’t make it with you to the Barossa. No trip to the Barossa would be complete without a stop at the Farm Shop home of one of Australia's most celebrated Gourmet Food Ambassadors, Maggie Beer. Guests can explore the farm shop and taste a wide variety of Maggie's delicacies. Wander the picturesque grounds taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of the farm, complete with a beautiful lagoon with resident ducks and turtles to entertain and delight.  After the first few stops of the day it is not uncommon to get a little peckish — so you will now grab some lunch. You will enjoy a gourmet platter-style lunch of local produce such as traditional German-style smoked meats (in fitting with the region's history), gourmet cheese, locally-baked bread, and other goodies. The lunch location varies based on venue availability and includes wineries such as Dell'uva Wines & Z Wines. Even after a lunch stop, there is always room for a little cheese tasting — especially when it is a selection from the award-winning Barossa Valley Cheese Company, an artisan cheese producer utilizing local dairy where possible, with a focus on soft cheese styles. Cheese keeps very well and you will certainly be able to make some purchases to be enjoyed later, or to be shared with friends. Next up, it's time for a survey of the valley, from the valley's most recognized viewpoint, Mengler's Hill. From here guests will take in the views of the sweeping valley, from the eastern to the western ridge and all the way to the wheat belt. Your experienced and knowledgeable guide will point out specific landmarks and explain a little of the regions and the different vineyards you can see from here. This is also a perfect photo opportunity so practice your selfie skills here (your guides are on hand to help you take the perfect framed shot). Finally, experience the premium wines and local hospitality of one of the region's boutique wineries such as Z Wines in Tanunda. Owned and operated by sisters with a long family history in the valley, their family lineage goes back to some of the very first settlers here. As both wine-makers and wine-marketers, the sisters are producing spectacular wines and serve them to guests in a gorgeous cellar door setting with a truly unique decor. Other cellar doors that may be substituted based on availability include Rosenvale Wines, Thorne Clark in the Eden Valley region, and Grant Burge Wines, among others. *Locations subject to change. Return to your Adelaide accommodations around 4:30 PM with a big smile and lasting memories.

This was a great experience that mixed both an opportunity to see parts of South Australia we wouldn't have had the opportunity to see and also explore beautiful wineries in Barossa. Our guide Peter was a local with great depth of knowledge of the area as well as being very entertaining. A perfect day out!

Very interesting. Guide most knowledgeable took you to parts of the ground you wouldn’t normally see. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it highly

Michael, our tour guide was a wealth of information. City tour was cancelled due to not enough attending.

A great day, not rushed but very enjoyable. The cube was the highlight. The driver was really good.

Went with my Mum who is 78 and we both really enjoyed it. Great guide and awesome views!
