Here's a great new tour for oenophiles headed Down Under: Vineyard Safaris, a new wine tour operator in South Australia, is offering seasonal private excursions throughout the state’s most famous wine regions.
Led by a Master of Wine and based in Adelaide, the exclusive journeys let travelers taste their way through South Australia’s premier wineries located in the Barossa, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills wine regions, and the opportunity to personally meet their celebrated winemakers.
Even cooler: Each Vineyard Safaris tour is a customized trip in a chauffeured vehicle that can bring enthusiasts to notable wineries—both popular names and boutique labels. Guests will get tasting opportunities that are typically not available to the general public.
All tours are hosted by Tim Wildman MW (Master of Wine) who shares his tasting tips, trade secrets, and makes personal introductions to the winemakers along the way. Itineraries can include sampling wines from their visitors' birth year to creating a own unique blend in a bottle to take home. Cellar door and vineyard visits not only include Australia’s most iconic wines labels, such as Penfolds Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace, but also small, boutique wineries that daily visitors won’t frequently access.
