Where do Go Direct’s Barossa Valley wine tours visit?
All of our Barossa Valley Wine Tours from Adelaide will pick your group up from a prearranged location you decide on with us. They then head out to the biggest and best known region for wine making in South Australia: the Barossa Valley.
Located only an hour from the Adelaide CBD, the area has a rich history of wine making and is home to almost 120 wineries, restaurants and cafes, making it a truly exceptional tourist destination.
Perhaps the best known of the Valley’s eclectic and diverse wineries is Jacobs Creek winery – prestigious and world renowned, Jacobs Creek prides itself on both its quality products and its status as a must-see tourist destination.
Any wine tasting tour would be incomplete without visiting its spacious and modern tasting rooms located just outside of Tanunda, relaxing outside on the lawn amongst the vines and taking a turn through the visitor centre, which not only details the origins of this ultra-successful winery, but those of the Barossa itself.
Another unmissable destination for our tours is the Seppeltsfield Wine Estate. Described by James Halliday as being the greatest showpiece in the Barossa Valley, Seppeltsfield was founded in 1851 and has been a producer of amazing wines since that time. Those visiting Seppeltsfield on a wine tour will be impressed at the wide array of wines and spirits available, as well as the history on display, which provides an experience truly representative of what is arguably Australia’s greatest wine region.
However, this isn’t a landscape dominated by just famous wineries – there are plenty of smaller, boutique and family run wineries that often offer superb tasting experiences as well. Kies Family Wines is situated just outside Tanunda, having been run by the Kies Family since 1985. The winery’s owners pride themselves on their family atmosphere and their passion for great wine, with their focus on becoming better, not bigger. It makes an excellent stop on any wine tour, which is complimented by a stop next door for a relaxing coffee or a meal at the Monkeynut Café.
Another exceptional winery is Rockford Wines. Nestled in the shadow of the Barossa Ranges, Rockford Wines was once an old stone settler’s hut but has become a destination for wine enthusiasts and appreciators. Producers of some of the richest and best aging wines in the Barossa, Rockford instils a sense of traditionalism and history into its visitors.
For those with broader tastes, a stop at the Kellermeister winery is highly recommended. With superb views over the Barossa Ranges, visitors can stop and relax outside on the lawn with a drink, or peruse the list from inside the cool stone tasting rooms, which includes fortified wines, flavoured wines and cider.
Beer drinkers are not ignored on this tour either – the Barossa Valley Brewing Company on the outskirts of Tanunda brews a selection of fantastic craft beers ranging from lagers to porters, and is an excellent spot to enjoy a drink and live music with friends on the weekend.
This is but the tip of the iceberg when it comes to wineries just waiting to be discovered in the region. But there are also great tourist destinations, and fantastic places to enjoy a good meal with friends as well! Visiting Tanunda township is a must for any Barossa-bound wine tour – the unofficial capital of the Barossa is bursting with rich heritage and character.
Tours can enjoy visiting the Tanunda Hotel for lunch and a relaxing drink in the outdoor dining area, take a stroll through the main street and visit any number of boutique clothing stores, sweet shops and antique parlours, or visit the Tanunda Bakery, which provides a wide assortment of freshly baked goods, many of which have a distinct German influence and flavour. We even make it to the famous Maggie Beer Farm Shop!
