What You Can Expect

McLaren Vale and Glenelg Tour with Wine Tastings from Adelaide

Glenelg

Your wine tour from Adelaide starts at Victoria Square, where you’ll meet your guide and hop aboard a minicoach for the 45-minute drive to McLaren Vale, one of Australia’s most iconic wine regions. Your first stop is Rosemount Estate.

When you arrive at this award-winning winery, admire the landscape of vineyard-covered hills, which you can view from the tasting room. Enjoy a wine-tasting session provided by the winery staff before continuing to your next winery, Lloyd Brothers Wine and Olive Company. Here, sample wines like shiraz, the varietal this winery is known for, while you learn about the three generations of operation at this family-owned business. After your tasting, you may browse items like olive oil, wine and beauty care products in the gift shop.

Next, your tour continues on McLaren Vale’s main street, where you have free time to explore independently. There are many ways to enjoy the culinary delights here—perhaps visit FruChocs to watch candy being made; check out the Almond Train, housed in a 1920s train carriage, to sample nuts, chutneys and other regional goods; enjoy another wine tasting at Hardys, a heritage-listed winery that dates back to 1857; or head to a cafe to relax with a cup of coffee.

At the end of your free time, return to your tour vehicle for the journey back to Adelaide, stopping in the town of Glenelg, a seaside community just 6 miles (10 km) outside of central Adelaide. Take a brief walk along the shore before heading back to the city for hotel drop-off. (Alternatively, you may stay longer in Glenelg and return to Adelaide on your own via the tram (own expense), a 20-minute ride aboard the last remaining tram line in the region).

Lots of fun and lots of great wine! You get PLENTY of wine to taste and option for some snacking food. Our guide, Dave was thoroughly entertaining and very informative, not just about the wine, but also about Adelaide. We had a good group of people from Norway, England, US, and some Aussies as well. Cheers!

Great tour with enthusiastic and knowlegeable guide. We packed a lot into the afternoon but it didn't feel rushed. The bus was small and comfortable and the atmosphere was personal. Great itinerary with variety not just wine tastings - I'm not really a wine person but I really enjoyed this trip.

We only had a limited time in Adelaide, so this tour was a great way to see beyond the city. We visited three top quality wineries, which were welcoming and very generous with their tastings, and it was great value for money. Dave was a superb guide - friendly, knowledgeable, passionate and a lot of fun. And he went above and beyond the call of duty to return my husband's mobile phone, which he'd left at one of the wineries - fantastic customer service!

I had a great time on this half day tour. The driver was funny, informative and very personable and professional. We had a good group of people who were all having a good time. The 3 wineries were very good and I learned a few things about the wines from that area. I would highly recommend this tour and driver. The whole booking process was easy as well. A very good experience overall.

Amazingly good value. It was a wonderful experience. McLaren Vale is a hidden gem. Dave, our guide enhanced the trip with his knowledge, personality and his ability to take a group of strangers and make us feel like old friends. The wineries he chose were all interesting but different. You did not have to be a wine buff or drink copiously to get enjoyment from the experience. I cannot recommend tbis trip highly enough.

Dave was friendly, knowledgable and provided great entertainment between our stops at the vineyards. We discovered some fine wines and took back some great memories as well as a few bottles of shiraz.
Thanks again Dave for making our day so great!
