Mini Bus Winery Tours
Do you enjoy a nice drop of Red or a sweet and fruity white wine? Maybe you’re more into a dry white, a fortified wine like port or sherry or even warm mead. The wine districts around Adelaide have it all and we can help get you there with our mini bus winery tours. Whether you prefer the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale or the Adelaide Hills, we can take your group to wineries that cater to every taste.
Touring Barossa Valley in a Minibus
With over 170 wine companies across both the Barossa and Eden Valleys, you are sure to find something you will love. Some of the more popular destinations here are Seppeltsfield Winery, Peter Lehman Wines, Penfolds and St Hallett. There is also a lot of other, not so well know wineries, like Bethany, Chateau Dorrien (like chocolate? taste their Chocolatino) and Pindarie which are growing in popularity.
Wineries are not the only attractions you can visit. Why not stop for lunch at Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop? Or go for a cheese tasting at the Barossa Valley Cheese Company. Finally, finish the day off with a visit to the Whispering Wall.
McLaren Vale Wine Tours in a Mini bus
With a climate similar to the Mediterranean, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find Italian, Spanish and Portuguese varieties on offer. You can also find some superior Red Wine Blends thanks to a no fear attitude towards experimentation. You can get a sense of the passion and find something new at almost every winery and cellar door. Some of the more popular wineries here are:
- d’Arenberg Wines
- Fox Creek Wines
- Wirra Wirra Winery
- Hugh Hamilton
- Kay Brothers Amery Vineyards.
Most of the wineries offer meals and excellent views or you can head into McLaren Vale itself where there are many options for lunch. You can always bring your own and have a picnic while enjoying the view.
Touring Adelaide Hills wineries in a Minibus
Adelaide Hills is not as well-known as The Barossa or McLaren Vale regions, but it offers over 90 wine labels and 48 cellar doors. Some of South Australia’s best wineries are located in the Adelaide HIlls region. The cooler climate and altitude is perfect for high-quality premium grapes. This results in great Pinot Noir, Riesling and some of the country’s best Sauvignon Blanc. The more popular wineries here include Bird in Hand Winery, Nepenthe Wines, The Lane Vineyard, Hahndorf Hill Winery, Shaw and Smith and Longview Winery.
There are many attractions throughout the Adelaide Hills that you could add on to your tour, Melba’s Chocolate Factory, Beerenberg Farm or a visit to Mt Lofty Summit to name but a few. Ottos’s Bakery in Hahndorf is highly recommended for lunch.
