Your winter wine wonderland trip is only a few sips away!
Embrace the cool wintry chill by sipping the full-bodied, warming taste of Shiraz.
With spectacular vineyards dotted throughout Australia, complete with jaw-dropping sunsets and valleys full of lush green vines, a road trip is well worthwhile.
Travel to taste the fruity, bright blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and cast your winter woes aside as you enjoy such summery flavours, or embrace the cool wintry chill by sipping the full-bodied, warming taste of Shiraz.
This stunning valley is home to world-famous wines and award winning blends, widely regarded as one of the globe’s best wine regions – and it’s in our own backyard. You’re spoiled for choice between 80 cellar doors and 150 wineries, and they are conveniently located in clusters so you can hop, skip or jump between them.
Fortified wines are often called ‘liquid sunshine’, and the Barossa soil is famous for producing particularly excellent varieties. Drink in not only these liquids but also the real sunshine as you watch spectacular sunsets unfold across the skies above this picturesque valley.
Many vineyards here are historic, heritage structures, such as Langmeil Winery, which offers its prized Freedom Shiraz made from 160-year-old vines. Another is Seppeltsfield Wines, founded back in 1851 and still serving up its iconic century old Para Port.
You can get to these lush vineyards within just a short hour’s drive from Adelaide, so there’s plenty of time to make your way around the coastal city itself and see all the wonderful sights of this Southern Australian capital.
Style and wine come together here, along with tasty treats grown locally on rich red soils. Pinot Noir is this regions’s crowning jewel, and there are more than 50 boutique cellar doors to knock on.
For these vintners, it’s happy wine, happy life, as they passionately and lovingly grow their produce and grapes. Wine tours are on offer, and most of the vintners love to chat about their work in the fields and share stories of how they innovatively compose new, fresh tastes for Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris.
Montalto Vineyard evokes the South of France feel while Lindenderry at Red Hill is immersed within 30 acres of vineyards and mesmerising gardens. Make your way through this greenery and then step onto the shimmering, soft sands of the peninsula’s coastline, only a short drive away from Melbourne.
