What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from your central Adelaide accommodation in a Mercedes-Benz tour vehicle. Set off toward wine country through the Adelaide hills while your guide tells you about local geography and wine-making traditions. After a roughly 45-minute drive, start visiting boutique wineries, including the Yangarra Estate, Gemtree, and Shottesbrooke, among others. After making a few winery visits, your guide helps your group plan the rest of the day. Then, head to a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch, visit two or three more local wineries for tastings, where you meet locals and check out views of vineyards, the hills, and the sea. Finish the tour with a drop-off at your original point of departure during the early evening.
