1 Welcome to Adelaide

Be welcomed into your heritage-listed Venetian Gothic-style hotel, nestled amongst the leafy plane trees of Wakefield Street just minutes away from Adelaide’s city centre. It’s time to unwind in the hotel’s courtyard, with a glass of sparkling wine in hand. You’ll then effortlessly explore the city in a zero-emission caddy, ending at Adelaide Central Market. Meet your expert host Cheryl, who’ll introduce the passionate market stall owners. You will taste signature dishes throughout the market, enjoying a four-course roaming dinner with wine.

On arrival, you’ll visit Provenance Barossa, home to Penfolds Cellar Door, Barossa Distilling Company, Ember Pizzas and Stein’s Taphouse to name but a few. Here you’ll have time to wander and to taste the local fare. After checking into your accommodation this afternoon, head off to Seppeltsfield winery for a private Village Discovery Tour.

3 Barossa Valley - Adelaide Hills

Your day begins with breakfast overlooking the glorious Jacob’s Creek vineyards, then add some Maggie Beer’s flair to your cooking, in the very studio where Maggie and Simon filmed the Cook and the Chef, at a private demonstration. Sample the many products at her farm shop. Be sure to save room for some relaxed Barossa style long-table dining at the award-winning St Hugo. After a short tour and tasting, you’ll be grazing on a delicious 2 course lunch with matching wines overlooking their glorious vineyard. Leave the Barossa behind and head through the picturesque Adelaide Hills to historic Hahndorf. Settled by 19th-century Lutheran migrants, it is known for its original German-style architecture and artisanal food. To learn more, visit the Hahndorf Academy, home to the German Migration Museum. On arrival, check into your boutique style accommodation for an afternoon and evening at leisure. It will be hard to resist a stroll down colourful Main Street where you’ll find the Australian Opal Company, the Alpaca Shop or the Hahndorf Leathersmith and Bush Gallery. Tonight, why not head to the German Inn to taste some true local fare when you order the famous German Sausage Platter consisting of delicious Bockwurst, Bratwurst, cheese Kransky and Vienna Sausages washed down with an iced cold beer?
