A day in the Barossa Valley is a day full of beauty, international wines and the most delicious produce of the area. This really is a day for the senses. We know all the right places to take you so sit back & relax as we take you on a day to remember.
Start your day with a collection at your door from either a hotel or other accommodations within Adelaide area and learn a little about the history of Adelaide, South Australia.
Our knowledgeable guides will give you the great backstory of the iconic Barossa Valley as you travel in comfort in our modern, comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle on your way to this spectacular wine region.
Our first Cellar for the day is Dell'Uva Wines. door Guests will enjoy a truly unique offering at this boutique cellar door offering a taste of what the Barossa Valley is offering into the future. Dell'uva offer a different take on the status quo, with one of the largest collections of varietals in the country! With more than 40 different European varietals, guests will expand their appreciation of what the valley can offer beyond the classic big reds of Shiraz and Cabernet. Also showcasing the forgotten art of amphorae (fermentation in wax-lined clay pots) there is plenty to learn and lots to sample at Dell'uva Wines.
Next up it is on to Seppeltsfield Estate. Guests will experience the majesty of the Seppeltsfield Winery Estate, an historic icon of the Barossa and integral part of its storied history. Learn the story of the Seppelt family, the phenomenal fortified wines upon which they have built their reputation and taste a broad range of their current wine offerings. Don’t forget to ask about the Centennial collection, the only wine collection of wines of its type in the world with more than 120 years of consecutive vintages currently stored in the barrel.
For the art lovers, a visual treat awaits inside the old horse stables, the first structure built on the estate. Today it hosts the Jam Factory, an eclectic blend of artists studio and demonstration space. View the art, make a unique purchase and maybe even meet with the artists themselves, right there in their studio/creative space!
Guests will continue their exploration of the Seppeltsfield Estate’s varied wonders with a visit to Vasse Virgin, a marvel of natural products based on virgin olive oil. Treat your skin to their all-natural products or taste the wonders of Australian made virgin olive oil. A beautiful collection of skin & body care products, gourmet food and a great place to pick up a special gift for the loved ones that couldn’t make it with you to the Barossa.
No trip to the Barossa would be complete without a stop at the Farm Shop home of one of Australia's most celebrated Gourmet Food Ambassadors, Maggie Beer. Guests can explore the farm shop and taste a wide variety of Maggie's delicacies, wander the picturesque grounds taking in the sights, sounds and smells of the farm and beautiful lagoon with resident ducks and turtles to entertain and delight.
After the first few stops of the day it is not uncommon to get a little peckish - so now for lunch. Guests will enjoy a gourmet platter style lunch of local produce such as traditional German-style smoked meats (in fitting with the region's history), gourmet cheese, locally baked bread and other goodies. The lunch location varies based on venue availability and includes wineries such as Grant Burge, Z Wines, Thorne Clark and Rosenvale Wines.
Even after a lunch stop, there is always room for a little cheese tasting - especially when it is a selection from the award-winning Barossa Valley Cheese Company, an artisan cheese producer utilising local dairy where possible with a focus on soft cheese styles. Cheese keep very well and you will certainly be able to make some purchases to be enjoyed later or shared with friends.

From here guests will take in the views of the sweeping valley, from eastern to western ridge and all the way to the wheat-belt.
