Duration: 5 Days
We invite you to embark on journey full of local flavours, showcasing the best of the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren wine regions. This culinary discovery will connect you to the makers, growers and passionate owners of South Australia food scene.
Day 1
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.
Day 2
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 at the Barossa, you’ll visit Seppeltsfield winery for a private Village Discovery Tour. Experience an award-winning mix of wine, food, craft and design before dining at FINO restaurant kitchen, where executive chef Sam Smith will connect you to the region through seasonal plates showcasing local, sustainable produce.
Day 3
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 shared meal at St Hugo in their vine-draped courtyard. Heading out of the Barossa, you will have the opportunity to support bushfire recovery in some of our most beloved townships, by visiting local producers renowned for their unique flavours. Join us, in collaboration with the #EmptyEsky movement, in supporting some of our favourite local creators, with time to fill your esky at the decadent Melbas Chocolate factory, and perhaps even time to visit nearby Woodside Cheese Wrights and Chesterfield Whisky Firm. Next, head to Barristers Block Winery, where you can sample their delicious wines or pick up a takeaway tasty charcuterie board that includes cured meats or salmon pate for a picnic that evening. This family run winery lost 100% of its vineyards in the recent bushfires. Fortunately, their cellar was saved, and guests are invited to support their recovery by filling their eskies with goodies – all freight to your home will be covered by Inspiring Journeys as a show of support. Your last Bushfire Recovery stop in the region is the Lobethal Bierhaus, where you can take advantage of tastings, or take home your favourites brews. We then head to your hotel Manna by Haus, in historic Hahndorf. B L
Day 4
Adelaide Hills – McLaren Vale
After breakfast, we move on to blue cheese, chevre and camembert from the Hills to the Fleurieu Peninsula, where this delectable cheese cellar showcases handmade artisan flavours from local producers. Bidding farewell to the Adelaide Hills, 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.
