Adelaide Hills Personalised Wine Day Tour

In the Adelaide Hills, you'll find South Australia's oldest wine region with more than 50 wineries continuing a tradition that started way back in 1845. Today, some of Australia's most elegant cool climate wines are produced in the region. Twenty-five cellar doors offer wine tasting and sales.

Mount Lofty Summit is the highest point which is 710 metres above sea level; the summit landing provides you with breathtaking views of the city's landmarks and coastline. The historic 1860's Bridgewater Mill, also known as the Old Rumbler, the waterwheel still turns today. Hahndorf, Australia's oldest surviving German settlement settled in 1840s; enjoy a break or take a stroll through the Village. There's still a strong German flavour in Hahndorf, most evident in the smallgoods outlets and German bakeries that line the bustling main street. We then venture on and explore what the rest of the Adelaide Hills has to offer.

Our tours encompass all facets of each region, visiting both iconic and boutique wineries. Your accredited owner/operator has been in the industry for many years and at the beginning of the tour will ascertain which wine varieties interest you and will tailor the winery visits to suit your individual tastes.
