Wine connoisseurs around the world know that South Australia is synonymous with excellent wines! While the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Coonawarra are home to many world class, award-winning wineries, they represent just a handful of the state’s great wine regions. In fact, there are more than 200 cellar doors on Adelaide’s doorstep. However, there’s more to South Australia than the wine, it’s the food which is equally glorious!

Whether you’d rather meet the growers and makers, pick your own ingredients, or dine in any of the world class restaurants, South Australians and tourists, both are spoilt for choices! Visit the Adelaide Central Market in the city, or any of the regional farmers market (Willunga or Barossa to name a few) to experience new flavours, fresh ingredients and taste a sample of what makes the food here, sought after world wide.

Day 2:

From the Adelaide Hills, it’s only a short drive to the Barossa. Meet local winemakers and personalities, take a vineyard tour at Jacob’s Creek Visitor Centre, try the port from your birth year at Seppeltsfield Winery or try an ale at one of the craft breweries. Taste the region’s stunning and iconic produce at restaurants such as Applellation, FermentAsian and Hentley Farm or try a regional gourmet platter including local cheese at one of the many cellar doors. Don’t miss Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop, a food haven that showcases the Barossa’s famous produce. For something special, some wineries provide visitors with an opportunity to blend their own wine and take it home as a souvenir. Many tour companies offer private day tours and some of the smaller luxury tour operators will also personalise / customise the tours to cater to your particular interests.
