Tour of the Week: Wine and Food Lover’s Barossa Valley Tour $119


Sprawling vineyards and lush countryside make up the stunning region of the Barossa Valley, an area known for its dedication to winemaking and fine, local foods.

Our Barossa Valley Tours take in everything the picturesque scenery has to offer, giving you the chance to explore the laidback lifestyle in the Valley, sample some delicious tipple, and tuck into a range of seasonal dishes. Throughout the day, we’ll weave our way through rolling vineyards, stopping off at well-known wineries along the way, and marvelling at the old Lutheran churches that hark back to the 19th century.


Adelaide Hills and the Whispering Wall


Our journey begins in the Adelaide Hills, where you can soak up the arty vibe of craft shops, independent cafes, and cute villages that seem to have stepped back in time. We’ll make a pit stop at the Whispering Wall, a 9-storey high dam that produces incredible acoustics.


Chateau Yaldara

The first winery we’ll stop off at is the historic Chateau Yaldara. The impressive building is
one of the most photographed pieces of architecture in the south of Australia, so we’ll give you plenty of opportunity to snap the perfect shot while sampling a range of world-class wine.

Jacobs Creek


We’ll then make our way to the heart of the Valley, crossing the babbling Jacobs Creek along the way and heading straight for the quaint township of Tanunda. While here, you’ll have some free time to pop in and out of the artisan shops and grab a coffee.

The Peter Lehmann Winery


Lunch is a feast fit for kings at the Peter Lehmann Winery. After a morning of exploring, you’ll get to kick back with platters full of mouth-watering local produce, including freshly cured meats, creamy cheeses, and warm bread.


Langmeil


Once refuelled, it’s onwards and upwards to Langmeil, one of the region’s oldest wineries. It is home to the oldest Shiraz vineyard in the world, and you’ll get to try some of their signature flavours. While here, you’ll also get the chance to discover the mesmerising views
from the Mengler’s Hill Lookout, where you can gawk at the valley views.

Seppeltsfield Winery and Murray Street Vineyards


The two final stops will take us to the iconic Seppeltsfield Winery and Murray Street Vineyards, where you can sample yet more delicious local flavours.


This is where the tour comes to an end, and we’ll make our way back through the scenery of Barossa to Adelaide.
