Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Adelaide

Be welcomed into your Heritage listed Venetian Gothic-style hotel, nestled amongst the leafy plane trees of Wakefield Street, just minutes away from Adelaide’s city centre. It is time to unwind in the hotel’s courtyard, with a glass of sparkling wine in hand. You will then effortlessly explore the city in a zero-emission EcoCaddy with a local expert, ending at Adelaide Central Market. Meet your host Cheryl, who will introduce the passionate market stall owners on an Adelaide Central Market Collaborators Tour. It is serious fun for those with a passion for great food, and the people who grow and supply it to our tables. You will taste signature dishes throughout the market, enjoying a four-course roaming local dining experience

Day 2 - Barossa Valley

This morning enjoy a relaxing breakfast and some free time to explore Adelaide before leaving the city for a taste of the country. You will visit Provenance Barossa, home to Penfolds Cellar Door, Barossa Distilling Company, Ember Pizzas and Stein’s Taphouse to name but a few. Here you will have time to wander and to taste the local fare. This afternoon, head off to Seppeltsfield winery for a private Village Discovery Tour with a local expert.

Day 3 - Adelaide Hills

Your day begins with breakfast overlooking Jacob’s Creek vineyards. Then add some Maggie Beer’s flair to your cooking, in the studio where Maggie and Simon filmed the Cook and the Chef, at a private demonstration with a local
expert. Sample the many products at her farm shop. Be sure to save room for some relaxed Barossa style long-table dining. You will be grazing on a delicious lunch at St. Hugo overlooking their glorious vineyard. Leave the Barossa behind and head through the picturesque Adelaide Hills to historic Hahndorf. Settled by 19th-century Lutheran migrants, it is known for its original German-style architecture and artisanal food. To learn more, visit the Hahndorf Academy, home to the German Migration Museum. On arrival, check into your boutique style accommodation for an afternoon and evening at leisure. It will be hard to resist a stroll down colourful Main Street where you’ll find the Australian Opal Company, the Alpaca Shop or the Hahndorf Leathersmith and Bush Gallery. Tonight, why
not head to the German Inn to taste some true local fare when you order the famous German Sausage Platter consisting of delicious Bockwurst, Bratwurst, cheese Kransky and Vienna Sausages washed down with an iced cold beer!

Day 4 - McLaren Vale & Adelaide

After breakfast and a chance to wander around the quaint shops of Hahndorf, your journey takes you to the rich landscape of McLaren Vale and the quirky d’Arenberg Cube. This building was inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking. Each of the five levels has been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses. You will be taken on a journey with a local expert before arriving at the top floor for a tasting and 360-degree views of the vineyards and enjoy a three-course lunch with wine at the stunning d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant. There will also be an opportunity for those interested to see the Salvador Dali exhibition. Our last stop will be at Gemtree Wines tasting their biodynamic wines, a simple way of farming that enhances the soil and the taste. Learn about biodynamic grape growing and winemaking during a relaxing guided tour of Gemtree’s Biodynamic Hut with a local expert and see firsthand how this philosophy is applied in the vineyards.
