Today, travelling in a small group you will enjoy a food and wine journey to South Australia’s premium wine region, The Barossa. Your first stop is Pindarie, a multi-tourism award-winning cellar door, which feels more like an Australian Homestead than a winery. Learn the stories behind the wines as you sample their blends while admiring the stunning vineyard views and enjoying some morning tea.
Next stop is Provenance Barossa, the original home of Penfolds in the Barossa which played a key role in the local wine industry since the early 1900’s. Home to an exclusive collection of food and beverage businesses offering unique experiences, and you will have free time to explore this popular destination. From wine purchases at Penfolds or First Drop Wines, to beer tasting paddles at Stein's Taphouse, to coffees and fine teas at Bean Addiction, there is sure to be something to take your fancy.
Then it’s on to Lambert Estate for lunch and wine tasting. Graze from gourmet platters of seasonal produce while you learn all about the wines, the family and the history of the winery.
