Enjoy a full day of private touring through the Fleurieu Peninsula and McLaren Vale region. With your local and very knowledgeable guide at the helm you will have the chance to sample wines from some of the region’s most iconic family-owned wine producers. This is your chance to discover what is so iconic about the McLaren Vale Wine Region.
You will be met by your guide at approximately 8:30am from your Adelaide accommodation. Your day begins with a coffee and a walk along the beach at the stunning ‘Star Of Greece’ restaurant in Aldinga, this is the perfect way to start any tour and will be easy to see why it is popular among the locals and international celebrities alike!
Your next destination will be the McLaren Vale Visitors Centre for some initial fact finding and a chance to pick up a special keepsake, before heading over to d’Arenberg Winery for the ‘Blending Bench’ experience. This is your chance to play winemaker, and through this unique experience you will be able to create a wine that is all your own work! You will then be able to bottle and name your wine in order to take away and feature it to friends and family – or just keep for yourself!
Now that you are in the wine making zone and with local family owned wineries as our theme, you need just one more thing – a stop at Blessed Cheese in McLaren Vale will provide a sensational grazing platter lunch to take with you and pair at each subsequent winery. There are many to choose from and your guide will take you to a selection of fantastic local wine producers in McLaren Vale before heading up to Hahndorf for a pre-dinner chill out. Hahndorf is a town rich in German-Heritage and has another unique cellar door to visit. A perfect way to wind down from your gastronomical day.
Concluding your pre-dinner stop your guide will drive you back to your city accommodation where your tour will conclude at approximately 5:30pm.
