Why do we love this
We love that this tour doesn't skimp on the wine, taking you to five iconic vineyards!
A trip to Adelaide is not complete without a day tour to the Barossa Valley Wine Tasting Tours– one of the most celebrated wine regions in the world. Take in stunning views of the vine-dense valley and meet the locals as you visit five different wineries and taste some of the best fortified wines in the world.
The first stop on your trip is Gumeracha, a small town located in the scenic Adelaide Hills. Gumeracha is known for it's giant rocking horse, which is the biggest in the world! It's also home to Australia’s only remaining wooden toy factory. It also boasts a café and lots of native, tame wildlife such as kangaroos, goats and alpacas, which enjoy being hand-fed.
Next, make your way towards Williamstown, the gateway to the Barossa Valley and home to the ‘Whispering Wall’. This is a structure built 110 years ago that is as tall as a 9-storey building and erected in a perfect semi-circle. It gets its name from the fact that it's possible to hear someone whisper from one end of the wall to the other, a lengthy 140 metres away!
Soon, after a short drive, you'll enter the biggest and most celebrated wine region in Australia – the Barossa Valley. Your first stop is Jacob’s Creek, the largest exporter in the valley that is famous for its shiraz, merlot and rosé. You'll receive an informative explanation about the wines and the wine making process from a local guide and will be offered a selection of them for tasting.
Next, stop at Kies, a quaint, family-owned boutique winery with exquisite wines that aren't available for sale anywhere else in the world. Exclusive!
By now you’ll probably be feeling peckish so it's off to Saltram’s for gourmet pizzas. You’ll get the chance to taste some more wine on a cellar door tour.
After your lunch break, make your way towards Wolf Bass – a world-renowned winery created in 1966 by the German migrant, Wolfgang Blass. Today, it is one of the most awarded wine brands and you’ll get the chance to taste a wide range of their wines before popping into the last winery of the day – the Lambert Estate. This is a family-owned business that made their name thanks to their Chocolate Port. A luscious dessert wine that's made using a fortified Australian Tawny wine base seeped with chocolate, this is one tasty treat.
Before heading back to Adelaide, round up the day by stopping at Mengler’s Hill lookout for stunning panoramic views of the Barossa Valley.
Expect to be back in Adelaide Central at approximately 5 pm.
