ITINERARY:

DAY 1: FRIDAY - TASTE THE ELUSIVE GRANGE AND PENFOLDS DINING EXPERIENCE

Welcome to Adelaide. Your driver will meet you at Adelaide Airport and transfer you to your hotel. This afternoon, meet your Tour Leader and fellow travellers for a bespoke mixologist experience at Sôl Rooftop, perched atop the iconic Eos Hotel. Your dedicated mixologist will create your chosen cocktail, selected from a dynamic list of regionally specific, signature and time-honoured cocktails. Grazing platters featuring the best in local produce are the perfect accompaniment, while enjoying sweeping views of the Adelaide Hills. Tonight, head to the Adelaide Central Market, South Australia’s culinary icon, established in 1869. Experience the “The Collaborators” dinner – a four-course, roving dining adventure in the lively market environment, with additional tastings along the way. Designed by one of the state’s noted food experts, Mark Gleeson, it is a must-do on any Adelaide culinary itinerary.

Overnight: The Mayfair Hotel

Meals: Dinner with paired wines

DAY 2: SATURDAY - EXPLORE THE BAROSSA VALLEY

Today is all about the Barossa. The region’s wine and food story is worldrenowned, but there’s an unexpected side of the Barossa waiting to be discovered. The day begins at Seppeltsfield Barossa, where you will enjoy a private tasting of premium still and fortified wines in the historic Homestead of the Seppelt family. Tour the Underground Blending Cellar before tasting your own birth year Tawny direct from the barrel in the Centennial Cellar, privately hosted by a Seppeltsfield wine educator.

Next head to the iconic St Hugo vineyard to taste four wines from the St Hugo collection. Afterwards, settle in for a relaxed, long-table dining experience in true Barossa form, with a shared style menu paired with St Hugo wines.

Last, but not least, explore Australia’s original winemaking Château and the birthplace of the Barossa wine industry - Château Tanunda. Learn about the secrets of the Estate, the pioneering spirit of the people who established it, the wine industry legends who cut their winemaking teeth here, and what makes it a unique part of the Australian wine industry. Your host will then guide you through a seated tasting of wines from the ‘Heritage’ and ‘The Château’ series of wines.

Return to Adelaide and enjoy an evening at leisure.

Overnight: The Mayfair Hotel

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Tastings

DAY 3: SUNDAY - PORT LINCOLN AND COFFIN BAY

An early start this morning for what will be a truly sensational day. Transfer to Adelaide Airport for the 45-minute flight to Port Lincoln, known as the Seafood Capital of Australia. Your guide will meet you on arrival for the drive to beautiful Coffin Bay National Park. Stroll along a deserted white sandy beach and keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife, including families of emus and kangaroos.

Then it’s on to Oyster HQ to learn about the local oyster industry. Look the part as you don a pair of waterproof waders and wade into the water to sit at the semi-submerged ‘Salt Water Pavilion’. A hands-on shucking lesson will have you opening oysters like a pro in no time! And best of all, you’ll get to taste the freshest Coffin Bay oysters straight from the sea. The ultimate seafood indulgence awaits at Oyster HQ, overlooking the pristine waters of Coffin Bay, to cap off a very unique epicurean adventure!

Return to Port Lincoln to explore the marina and see the boats that make up the large fishing fleet. Stop at Boston Bay Wines for wine tasting and stunning ocean views and then enjoy dinner at Del Giorno’s Restaurant, overlooking magnificent Boston Bay. As the sun begins to set, head to the airport for your return flight to Adelaide.

Overnight: The Mayfair Hotel

Meals: Morning tea, Lunch, Dinner, Tastings

DAY 4: MONDAY - UNIQUELY MCLAREN VALE

Enjoy breakfast before heading to McLaren Vale and the iconic d’Arenberg Cube. The idea to build the Cube came to Chester Osborn in 2003, inspired by the complexities and puzzles of winemaking. Each of the five levels has been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses, including features such as a wine sensory room, a virtual fermenter, a 360-degree video room, and many other tactile experiences. Blend and bottle your own wine, working with three barrel samples of single vineyard wine, each with distinctive flavours. Be guided through the blending process to create your own personalised Shiraz, a truly unique souvenir to savour on your return home. Afterwards, enjoy a share-style lunch at Singapore Circus.

This afternoon, visit Shottesbrooke Vineyard for a wine tasting at the cellar door, followed by a barrel tasting in the cellar. Then head to Beresford Estate, a family owned and passionately South Australian, 70 acre working vineyard established in 1985. Here you can indulge in a tasting of your choosing - a wine and chocolate pairing, gin or beer tasting paddle.

Return to Adelaide for an evening at leisure.
