What You Can Expect

Small-Group Barossa Valley Food and Wine Tour

Lunch at Wolf Blass Visitor Centre

After morning pickup at your Adelaide hotel, travel about an hour by comfortable mini-coach to reach the Barossa Valley. Start your day at TeAro Estate’s intimate tasting room, a heritage-listed 1850s barn in Williamstown. Savor morning tea with treats from a local bakery followed by a wine tasting. Maori for "happy home," TeAro Estate started in 1919, a story you'll hear more about as you sip.

Then take a short drive to Kellermeister for handcrafted small-batch wines. Enter the charming mud-brick tasting room and soak up breathtaking views of the vineyards and rolling hills. Taste a variety of award-winning wines, including a Shiraz and a selection from a 1970s-era line from when the winery was founded. You can also enjoy a sample of the estate's crisp apple cider, which recently took top prize at Adelaide's annual Craft Beer and Cider Festival.

Next, head to Maggie’s Farm Shop, a lakeside store and kitchen a-jumble with fresh glazes, jellies, jams, and other specialties. The ever-popular spot is run by Maggie Beer, an all-star chef, writer and entrepreneur in Australia. Here, you get to sample a range of tasty fresh foods and specialty goods, including seasonal produce plucked right from the on-site farm.

The shop closes for certain school holidays throughout the year, in which case you'll spend some free time on Murray Street in Tanunda. The downtown area is lined with shops selling a variety of housewares, gifts, and crafts. If shopping isn't your thing, make a stop at the local museum or the visitor center to bone up on Barossa history.


When it's time for lunch, head to the Wolf Blass Visitor Centre for a delicious gourmet meal. Afterward, taste some of the winery’s varieties as you learn how the legendary founder Wolf Blass put Barossa Valley on the map as a world-famous wine destination.

Continue to Saltram Wine Estate, a winery that opened its cellar doors in 1859 that is today one of the most celebrated winemakers in the region. Here you'll try some of their flagship red wines before heading to your final stop at Pindarie, where crops, sheep, and vineyards cover the family-owned land. Enjoy samples of Shiraz, Tempranillo and Sangiovese varietals in the sleek tasting room, originally used to store grain, as you hear about about the renovated property.

After a full day discovering the Barossa Valley’s amazing wines and food, return to Adelaide where your tour ends.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Had a great time on the tour. The small group of 8 was perfect. Much better than a larger group. We loved the small less well known wineries. Loved the food matching at Murray street wines, the antipasto platter style lunch was perfect for the day too.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

My friend and I had a fantastic day out on the tour. Rick the driver and guide was a wonderful source of information. We met some great people along the way and I saw part of the country I hadn't seen before. Definitely a trip worth doing!
