Barossa Valley Wineries Tour with Tastings from Adelaide

Start in the morning with pickup at your Adelaide hotel, then leave the city behind as you drive into the Adelaide Hills aboard a deluxe minicoach. Disembark at your first stop of the day, the Whispering Wall. One of South Australia’s more unusual attractions, the wall is most famous for its incredible acoustics. Stand on either end of the wall, which spans 500 feet (150 meters), and say something to someone standing on the opposite end. You'll be amazed at how sound travels. Continue to your first winery destination, Chateau Yaldara. After a tasting of the chateau’s reds and whites, head to the township of Tanunda. Take a walk around quaint Tanunda before driving to the outskirts of town to visit Peter Lehmann winery. Enjoy sampling a variety of their excellent wines while relaxing inside the handsome stone building that dates to the 1880s. Afterward, tuck into the mouthwatering goodies such as locally sourced cheese, cured meats, breads, produce and more. Walk off your lunch by strolling next door to Langmeil winery, home of the oldest known shiraz vineyard in the world. Three Barossa Valley locals bought the neglected winery in 1996 and have since fully restored it. The staff welcome you in for a relaxed wine tasting in their rustic tasting room. As you make your way to your next destination, pause at Mengler's Hill Lookout for panoramic views over the Barossa Valley. The fourth and final winery will be something special. Your guide will pick something to suit the group size and time of year.Throughout your tour, your friendly guide and winery hosts share their insider knowledge and personal touch, creating a truly memorable Barossa Valley wine tasting experience.
