Welcome to 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’s time to unwind in the hotel’s courtyard, with a glass of sparkling wine in hand. You’ll then effortlessly explore the city in a zero-emission caddy, ending at Adelaide Central Market. Meet your expert host Cheryl, who’ll introduce the passionate market stall owners. You will taste signature dishes throughout the market, enjoying a four-course roaming dinner.
Adelaide – Barossa Valley
This morning enjoy a relaxing breakfast and some free time to explore Adelaide at your own pace before meeting your group and leaving the city for a taste of the country. On arrival, you’ll visit Provenance Barossa, home to Penfolds Cellar Door, Barossa Distilling Company, Ember Pizzas and Stein’s Taphouse to name but a few. Here you’ll have time to wander and to taste the local fare. After checking into your accommodation this afternoon, head off to Seppeltsfield winery for a private Village Discovery Tour. Experience an award-winning mix of wine, food, craft and design before dining at the homestead where Executive Events Chef Owen Andrews will connect you to the region through seasonal plates showcasing local, sustainable produce.
Barossa Valley – Adelaide Hills
Your day begins with breakfast overlooking the glorious Jacob’s Creek vineyards, then add some Maggie Beer’s flair to your cooking, in the very studio where Maggie and Simon filmed the Cook and the Chef, at a private demonstration. Sample the many products at her farm shop. Be sure to save room for some relaxed Barossa style long-table dining. You’ll be grazing on a delicious lunch at St Hugo in their Hugo Gramp room overlooking their glorious vineyard. Leaving the Barossa behind and heading through the picturesque Adelaide Hills before arriving at historic Hahndorf. This afternoon visit Udder Delights, a cellar door of another kind. Here you’ll taste a selection of delicious handmade artisan cheeses such as Blue Cheese, Chevre and Camembert, all produced locally from the Hills district to the Fleurieu Peninsula. This afternoon, check into your boutique style accommodation and enjoy an evening at leisure.
Adelaide Hills – McLaren Vale
After breakfast and a chance to wander around the quaint shops of Hahndorf, our journey then takes us 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. Here, you’ll be taken on a journey before arriving at the top floor for a tasting and 360-degree views of the vineyards and enjoy a delicious 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 tasting their biodynamic wines, a simple way of farming that enhances the soil and the taste. Heading back to Adelaide this afternoon, your evening is all yours to explore or relax at leisure.
