    Day 2 - Relaxed Start - The Wines of the Barossa Valley

    Enjoy a Relaxed Start to further explore Adelaide before leaving the city and travelling inland to the nearby Barossa Valley, Australia’s oldest wine region. Early German settlers found the warm climate ideal for fruit growing, especially grapes. Bringing some overseas knowledge and after a great deal of trial and error, they succeeded in establishing a thriving viticulture. The first wineries were founded at this time and many of these are still in operation today, such as the local institution of Seppeltsfield Estate. Take a private village tour with a Local Expert and experience an award-winning mix of wine, food, craft and design. Tonight, indulge in a mouth-watering dining experience at Seppeltsfield, which proudly showcases its use of locally sourced produce, with thoughtfully paired wines. Stay: Novotel Barossa Valley Resort Included: Breakfast, Dinner with Wine

    Day 3 - From the Valley to the Hills

    Start your day with an exclusive visit to national treasure, Maggie Beer’s Farm and take part in a private cooking demonstration in the very studio where ‘The Cook and the Chef’ was filmed. There is time to taste and buy their products in the farm shop or just relax on their terrace overlooking the adjoining lake. Your next stop is at the stunning St Hugo Restaurant, where you will continue your epicurean experience with a Barossa-style, long-table dining experience. Make Travel Matter as you have the opportunity to support bushfire recovery by visiting local producers renowned for their unique flavours. Meet the locals, hear their stories and sample the finest produce the region has to offer. In collaboration with the #EmptyEsky movement, fill your esky at the decadent Melba Chocolate Factory, neighbouring Woodside Cheese Wrights and Chesterfield Whisky Firm. Next, head to Barristers Block Winery, where you can sample delicious local wines or pick up a takeaway tasty charcuterie board that includes cured meats or salmon pate for a picnic this evening. This family run winery lost 100% of its vineyards in the recent bushfires. Fortunately, their cellar was saved, and guests are invited to support their recovery by filling their eskies with goodies. Your last Bushfire Recovery stop in the region is the Lobethal Bierhaus, where you can take advantage of tastings, or take home your favourites brews. Spend tonight in charming little Hahndorf, Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement and then enjoy the evening at leisure. Stay: The Manna By Haus, Hahndorf Included: Breakfast, Lunch with Wine

    Day 4 - Relaxed Start - Cheese and More Wine

    After a Relaxed Start, visit the country’s leading artisan cheesemakers at Udder Delights for a delicious tasting. What started off as an escape route for founders Estelle and Trevor Dunford to use up the leftover goat’s milk, turned into a lifestyle for their daughter Sheree and husband Saul by always seeking new ways of pushing their ideas forward, including the creation of Australia’s first raw milk blue cheese. Have your camera ready as you continue to the stunning McLaren Vale wine region and d’Arenberg Estate for a tasting in their iconic Cube building, representing the complexity of viticulture. Take the option to visit the Salvador Dali exhibition housed inside then proceed to the d’Arry Verandah Restaurant for your three-course lunch with views equally impressive to the food. With the aim to pass on a sustainable business to the next generation, sheep agistment, solar power, and natural disease control are a few ways d’Arenberg uphold their commitment to the environment. In the afternoon, sample wines at the Gemtree vineyard where locals Melissa and Mike have successfully implemented sustainability and biodynamics in their day-to-day practices reaching a full organic status in 2011. Later, return to Adelaide and spend the evening relaxing. Stay: Mayfair Hotel Included: Breakfast, Lunch with Wine
