What you can expect
Sample full-flavoured wine varieties as you make your way through the rolling, vine-covered hills of McLaren Vale. Gain insight into the region's winemaking practises as you visit spots like the Coriole Vineyards and Penny's Hill before you stop to enjoy a delicious picnic-style lunch.
Depart from your Adelaide hotel in the morning, riding through the small town of Clarendon en route to Coriole Vineyards. Head to Coriole's delightful ironstone cellar, which is surrounded by beautiful flowered gardens. Sample their outstanding range of wines, and taste olives and cheeses that pair perfectly together.
Take pleasure in a satisfying lunch at the d'Arrys Veranda restaurant at the d'Arenberg winery, or admire sensational views of the McLaren Vale vineyards by sitting under the vines and having your meal picnic-style.
Next, make your way nearby Penny's Hill to taste their wide array of wines, which include The Minimalist Chardonnay and Malpas Road Merlot. Here you can also check out a visual art exhibition of fine Australian art on the perfectly-manicured property. With so many wineries in this region, there are an abundance of stops to choose from, and, if time allows, you can pop into even more boutique tasting rooms in the afternoon. As your day comes to an end, leave this fantastic wine region behind and return to Adelaide.
