Micro-Group Barossa Valley Wine Tour from Adelaide
This is premium small-group wine touring at it's best! Our very small groups have a maximum of 6 guests and we regularly depart with less. We only visit premium wineries so you get to try the best wines of the region. There is no set itinerary for the day so every tour is different and tailored to the group. We know all the best wineries, you can trust your local guide to create the perfect day for you. Lunch is at one of the most popular and scenic restaurants in the region. You'll enjoy a banquet style tasting-menu of freshly prepared local produce alongside a glass of local wine or beer.

Start your day by being picked up from your Adelaide CBD accommodation around 9:15am in a luxurious tour vehicle. Along the way to the first winery, your wine guide will familiarize you with the region and its roots, along with Adelaide's other main wine producing regions.
After a leisurely 60 minute drive you arrive in wine country, where you will get to taste premium wine from the best boutique producers as led by passionate and knowledgeable locals. Wineries visited could include the truly gluggable wines at Yelland & Papps, historic Langmeil, or custodians of the "Command" vineyard at Elderton to name but a few.
During the first two winery visits you will get to try a good selection of premium wines which truly represent the region, and your guide will get to know you and your tastes in wine.

Four very good wineries, Ballycroft Vineyard and Cellars was the outstanding. Toured, tasted and purchased. Thank you Matt and Joe
Our guide for the day was Matt.
He was extremely informative about wines, the processing and harvesting, tastings.
He took us to 4 wineries, after the first he had the idea of what types of wines we liked and matched the next three to our tastes.
Lunch was a pleasure, local produce, delicious!
We went to Maggie Beer's shop and sampled her goodies.
Treats and wines to take back home were collected over our day.
Matt gave us great tips of where to eat/visit in Adelaide. We were not disappointed with any of his recommendations!
We thoroughly recommend this trip.
We had a wonderful voyage of discovery with Matthew. Fantastic wines coupled with a deep knowledge of the region and its history. We found hidden gems and had a wonderful time. We would both highly recommend this tour, especially if you want the chance to look beyond the larger vineyards and create your own itinerary. Thanks for a great day.
Matt provided a very knowledgeable and thorough tour that took us to some very good winerys.Our stop for lunch proved to be an excellent choice with very good food.We would not hesitate to recommend this tour as we thoroughly enjoyed the day.
We 6 friends on a girls trip had an awesome day touring the Barossa with Matt. He was knowledgable and fun, and even booked us into an amazing restaurant for lunch my personal highlight...the food was amazing
The wineries were all very different, which made it nice to see how different they all were. He even stopped into a distillery for my special request for a bottle of gin. The transport was very comfortable, and Matt even put up with our singing on the way back, haha.
Thanks Matt, we had a great day!
The tour was excellent in every respect. Matt was knowledgeable about wines generally and took us to vineyards of our choice in the Barossa Valley. We had a wonderful day: beautiful scenery, great wines, comfortable transportation and a charming, bright, personable host. Truly a memorable experience and great to be on such a small tour just the two of us and Matt.
Matt nous a préparée une tournée des producteurs intéressants de la vallée et des environs très bien reçus partout, on a même eu le privilège de visiter les chais et l'atelier de vinification d'une grande maison qui a une compagnie aérienne internationale pour client. Trois autres producteurs différents, indépendants, traditionnels et moderne ont complété la journée ponctuée par un lunch frugal mais très bon dans un petit resto italien d'Anguston. Nous avons apprécié le confort du transport, la ponctualité de Matt, ses commentaires avisés et sympa en bref, une excellente journée qui nous a rapidement donné une très bonne idée de ce que l'on produit dans la Barossa Valley!
