After breakfast at your accommodation you will be met by your guide to commence your full day of touring and activities within the Barossa region.
The route to the Barossa will take you through the natural beauty of the Adelaide Hills. Imagine tall, slender native gumtrees, lining the roads on which you’ll travel. Charming hillside towns will greet you as you pass through.
The township of Angaston, one of the first towns to be settled in the region, will welcome your arrival to the Barossa. It also happens to house the perfect local bakery from which to grab a hot beverage and a delicious treat for morning tea. With the aroma of coffee and pastries filling the air, proceed to Mengler’s Hill, the perfect vantage point overlooking the wider district and colours of the vibrant Barossa Valley below.
After taking in the panoramic sights, it is time to visit a number of iconic Barossa experiences, showcasing the longstanding heritage and architecture found within the region.
On to Seppeltsfield, a place of rich history within the Barossa, dating back to 1850. A private tour of the establishment will unveil the rich history of the property and how it has become one of the pillars of the Barossa. A trip to Seppeltsfield would be remiss without also enjoying the cornerstone of the company’s current operation – tasting your birth year vintage of Seppeltsfield famous Tawny Port. This unique experience is a lasting legacy from the early Seppelt family founders, ensuring each vintage was not touched for 100 years, paving the way for the success of the operation today. On conclusion of your tasting, you will also have the opportunity to visit the Jam Factory, situated at Seppeltsfield and showcasing some of the regions quality artists.
After your tasting, enjoy lunch at one of the region’s best restaurants, where you will enjoy a menu showcasing the local produce.
Torbreck Vintners will be the next destination, where an exclusive experience has been designed for our guests and includes a range of exclusive seasonal offerings, which could include a tasting of Torbreck’s Grenache range, directly from the barrel, or spend time out in the vineyard to understand the process from vine to glass, all depending on what the vineyard is showcasing at the time. You are also able to enjoy a private, structured wine tasting at the cellar door, sampling their beautiful range of wines.
The rest of the afternoon is flexible with opportunities for additional premium wine tastings and experiences, or you may even like to experience one of the local distilleries for a handcrafted gin or whisky, all tailored to your interests and time constraints.
At the end of the day journey back to your accommodation, looking back with fond reflection on today’s activities and experiences.
