Micro-Group McLaren Vale Wine Tour from Adelaide

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
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 best 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.

What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from your central Adelaide accommodation in a Mercedes-Benz tour vehicle. Set off toward wine country through the Adelaide hills while your guide tells you about local geography and wine-making traditions. After a roughly 45-minute drive, start visiting boutique wineries, including the Yangarra Estate, Gemtree, and Shottesbrooke, among others. After making a few winery visits, your guide helps your group plan the rest of the day. Then, head to a local restaurant for lunch. After lunch, visit two or three more local wineries for tastings, where you meet locals and check out views of vineyards, the hills, and the sea. Finish the tour with a drop-off at your original point of departure during the early evening.

What a great day. Matt gave us a great tour of McLaren Vale with a number of different wineries (4 in the day) and a fantastic lunch at the Salopian Inn. Just 3 of us on the tour (we knew each other) so it was effectively a private outing. He adjusted the winery choices on the

We had no idea of what to expect or where to go, but Matt did a masterful job of not only picking some great wineries and an outstanding lunch location, he even brought us to the d'Arenberg cube (thankfully for a quick whirlwind tour). The van he chose for the tour was

We went on two separate tours with Matt. First to McLaren Vale with one other couple, and 2 days later, a Barossa tour which turned out to be private. Matt has great knowledge of the regions and the wines and, interestingly, took us to producers we had never heard of. South

I love smaller, boutique wine makers and Matt asked all the right questions and I got all the best results. Refreshingly free of any hard sells or favouritism to certain vineyards. I felt that this was tailored to exactly what myself and the other couple were looking for. Lunch
