At Taste the Barossa we focus on QUALITY!! With exquisite cellar door experiences across three World Class Wineries, you’ll have the opportunity to taste around 25 wines, and enjoy a Chef prepared Barossa feast for lunch from the award-winning Salters Kitchen. Join us for a full day of Tantalising wine, sumptuous food and a sprinkling of Sightseeing. Hop on the prettiest bus you’ll see in Adelaide and relax and enjoy expert commentary from one of our knowledgeable tour guides as you head off on your Barossa Valley Adventure and t ravel the scenic route through the beautiful Adelaide Hills as you enjoy some information and humour along the way. Look out for Kangaroos, and Emu’s and marvel at the changing landscape as we approach the Barossa Valley and glimpse our first vines. Time to awaken your taste buds with our first tasting at one of the most photographed buildings in the Barossa, the stunning Chateau Yaldara. Immerse yourself in the grandeur of your surroundings as the host takes you through a beautiful, structured wine tasting. There’s time to explore the property, walk around the grounds, take photos by the fountain, and explore the hidden tunnels that lie beneath this spectacular Chateau. Our next stop is the quaint country town of Tanunda, where you can amble along the high street, browse in the local shops, or grab yourself a coffee, take a seat and have a relaxing 20 mins of watching the world go by.

Taste The Barossa Image

Our next winery experience is the beautiful, heart-warming, and wholesome Saltrams. Let the hosts tantalise your palate as they showcase their favourite drops and share their knowledge with you on all things wine making in their rustic Cellar Door Barrel Hall. After the tasting it’s time for lunch, where you’ll enjoy an absolute Barossa feast with a selection of the finest Chef prepared hot and cold dishes, from the award-winning Salters Kitchen. There’s no rushing your meal, with ample time to enjoy some good company, get to know your fellow travellers. We head now to Menglers Hill lookout for a view and a half! Check out the Valley, see where you’ve been and where you’re heading, as it’s now time to head to the 3 rd winery and the most exclusive cellar door experience of your tour the stunning Rosenvale Winery. Opening only for Taste the Barossa guests, prepare to be WOW’d!!! The passion is palpable as Rosenvale’s hosts generously share with you the most spectacular wines you will surely ever taste. World Class is an understatement! Finally, a picturesque drive through Seppeltsfield will round off your perfect Barossa adventure, with time to grab a photo of the iconic Date Palms and learn about their fascinating origin, and the iconic Seppeltsfield legacy. Time now to sit back, listen to some quiet music and watch the scenery go by, or perhaps close your eyes for a quick nap, as we express back to Adelaide for approximately 5:30 PM and finish the perfect Barossa Adventure.

Taste the Barossa is a small family-owned company started by myself, Dallas Coull, and my wife, Nikki Coull. We met in 1997 while I was working in Greece and Nikki was on holiday from her home in Nottingham, England. We have three beautiful children, James (23), Georgia (21), and Tamsin (12). I have been involved in tourism in Australia for over 25 years, having previously founded Groovy Grape Getaways and am very proud to still see the Groovy buses travelling between Melbourne, Adelaide and Alice Springs today.

After spending six years in the UK with Nikki, we made the move to Australia in 2009 and started Taste the Barossa. I have a love for the Barossa Valley after spending a great deal of my youth there, with one of my first jobs being on a bottling line in a Barossa Valley Winery.

Over the last few years, we have assembled a fantastic little team that are as passionate about Adelaide and South Australia as I am. I know you will have one of the best Barossa Wine tours as you explore the stunning Adelaide wineries.

Time

Overflowing with more than 170 wineries, South Australia’s most killer drops are best discovered through a mixed bag of Barossa Valley wine tours and experiences.

Ain’t nothing wrong with getting lost in the r olling hills and country air of the Barossa – after all, this is premier Aussie winemaking territory so a visit should certainly be savoured. But if your mission involves digging up hidden gems, then signing onto one of the most eye-opening Barossa Valley wine tours and experiences is a no-brainer. Our pick of the most remarkable is calling.

Barossa Red Vintage Tours

Facilitating a range of tours for up to six guests, including themed expeditions with Devonshire tea and stout tasting, and a half or full day out bouncing between wineries, distilleries, craft breweries and historical photo opportunities, your ride for the day is a 1972 Austin FX4 once owned by Sir Richard Branson.

Rehn Bier

Craft breweries make the cut on this tour. (Image: Rehn Bier pictured/Barossa Tourism)

One of the most character-filled Barossa Valley wine tours on offer, there’s even a ‘Meet the Locals’ three-hour group tour every Friday night where you’ll score an invitation to the tour operator’s personal social mixer that evening, plus dinner. Prices start from $410 for two people and each tour requires a minimum of two passengers.

Barossa Bespoke Tours

If you have a clear idea of what you’d like, Barossa Bespoke Tours specialises in creating detailed private itineraries so you get exactly what you pay for. A typical tour includes hotel transfers, visits to some of the region’s best-loved wineries , and lunch with paired wines at a local restaurant.

It’s priced from $800 for two adults and two additional guests can jump in on the two-person deal for an extra $150 per person. Part of the appeal of this service is the expert guide you’ll have on hand. Kym spent more than 20 years working within the Barossa Valley’s hospitality scene, managing several cellar doors and hotels, making this one of the most insightful Barossa Valley wine tours out there.

The Barossa Cellar

No visit to the Barossa is complete without a visit to The Barossa Cellar , a regional wine cellar (and Australia’s first) housing a staggering collection of rare and aged Barossa and Eden Valley wines. Best of all, it offers hosted, exclusive access to the country’s top drops, and an invitation to taste wines from the prestigious Barons of Barossa’s 3000-strong wine collection.

Its standout tour is the Barossa Vine & Wine Experience, allowing you to sit in the heart of the cellar, The Vault, and enjoy a private tasting, plus the ability to purchase a vine in perpetuity. Priced at $1,150 for two guests, it doesn’t come cheap, but this is exclusive access you’ll never forget on board one of the finest Barossa Valley wine tours.

Adelaide Sightseeing

Two excellent group tours, running all the way from Adelaide CBD, are offered by Adelaide Sightseeing . The first is a full-day, small group coach tour, the ‘Barossa Food and Wine Experience’, which makes stops at a handful of great wineries, including Pindarie Wines and Lambert Estate, some of the region’s finest foodie havens including Maggie Beer’s Farm Shop, and at a brilliant vantage point for happy snaps in Mengler Hill, one of the Barossa’s most unmissable things to do. Prices start from $175 per adult.

Meanwhile, the full-day ’Barossa and Hahndorf Highlights’ tour caters for a larger group than its other offering and includes a wine tasting at Jacob’s Creek, one of the Barossa’s best-loved wineries, a lunch and paired tasting at Lambert Estate, and a trip to Hahndorf, a gorgeous village filled with rich German heritage plus fascinating shops and art galleries. It’s priced at $170 per adult.

Small Batch Wine Tours

Live like a VIP for the day with Small Batch Wine Tours , which are renowned for their luxurious Barossa Valley wine tours. With keys to many of the region’s most exclusive wineries, some that don’t even open their doors to the general public, these guys provide incredible premium experiences to both small groups or couples seeking an intimate setting.

Seppeltsfield Winery

Opt for a VIP experience with Small Batch Wine Tours. (Image: Barossa Grape & Wine Association)

In its least exclusive offering, the ‘Small Group’ tour aims to avoid crowds, timing its arrival at the likes of Two Hands Wines, one of the Barossa’s most extraordinary wineries, and Izway Wines, a boutique label with a firm focus on organic farming, during quiet periods. Lunch is included, and prices start at $300 per adult.

On the super exclusive end, private expeditions for two, featuring lunch at Fino at Seppeltsfield, one of the region’s most celebrated restaurants , plus visits to four or so wineries are priced from $780 per person, while the ‘Penfolds vs Henschke’ tour is what dreams are made of.

Fino Seppeltsfield

Dine at Fino during a Small Batch Wine Tour. (Image: Fino Seppeltsfield)

Offering exclusive access to both Penfolds Grange and Henschke’s Hill of Grace, two of the wine world’s most applauded creations, and throwing in lunch at Fino once again, this is pure decadence. Prices start from $1,800 per person.

Hill of Grace experience at Henschke

Speaking of the most extraordinary blends going, Henschke’s ‘Hill of Grace Experience’ is worth mentioning in this ‘best of’ line-up.

Hill of Grace experience at Henschke

Don’t miss the Hill of Grace experience at Henschke. (Image: Barossa Grape & Wine Association)

Priced at $300 per person, the small group expedition, capped at six people, offers access to Henschke’s revered Hill of Grace vineyard, plus a once-in-a-lifetime chance to taste vintage varieties in a private tasting room, away from the label’s main cellar door, which stands as one of the Barossa’s best winery experiences regardless.

Henschke Hill Of Grace Vineyard

Visits to the working mechanics of the winery, plus samples of Henschke’s esteemed The Wheelwright, Cyril Henschke and Mount Edelstone drops are also included in the exceptional two-hour tour.

The two-hour tour is full or surprises. (Image: Barossa Grape & Wine Association)

Barossa Unique Tours

Sometimes in life, hard choices will have to be made. With Barossa Unique Tours , that choice will be between a classic 1966 Ford Mustang convertible, a Jaguar XF or a motorcycle trike featuring a helmet intercom.

Offering everything from one-and-a-half-hour sightseeing tours (sans any wine tasting) to eight hours’ worth of winery and food experience hopping, all three head-turning automobiles will see you on the road like never before.

Prices start from $140 per person but soar all the way up to $500 per person for that memorable eight-hour journey in that super special Jag.

Taste The Barossa

Sample the best of the region under the wing of a local who once worked on the bottling line at Peter Lehmann Wines. Taste The Barossa , a small coach tour that hits the road from Adelaide before exploring wine country, will get you to the grand Chateau Yaldara in Lyndoch before a brief stop in central Tanunda, a gourmet cheese, meat and vegetable platter lunch and a wine tasting at Peter Lehmann, then more wine at Rosenvale Vineyards before rounding the day off at Wolf Blass. Groups are guaranteed to never exceed 20 people, and it costs $159 per person.

Barossa Helicopters

As the name suggests, you can also explore the Barossa Valley from above thanks to Barossa Helicopters , who offer multiple scenic flights as well as luxurious food and wine experiences. Located in Lyndoch and securing more than 20 landing sites right across the region, the team can get you wherever your racing heart desires in a matter of minutes.

St Hugo's winery lunch

Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

It’s all about quality over quantity with the Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia crew, a high-end operator providing a wide range of unforgettable Barossa Valley wine tours.

Seppeltsfield Tawny Tasting

Seppeltsfield’s exclusive Centenary Tour

Once you’re done there, you’ll move on to Yalumba, yet another must-visit winery pit-stop during your adventure in the Barossa Valley, where you’ll stickybeak through the iconic brand’s fascinating cooperage before tasting some of its finest creations and washing it down with a platter jammed with outstanding local produce. Prices start from $274 per person.

Day With The Dirtman experience at Gibson Wines

Rob Gibson, affectionally known in this neck of the woods as The Dirtman and founder of Gibson Wines, has been doing his thing for around 40 years, masterfully knocking together brilliant blends that take total advantage of the Barossa Valley’s unique winemaking climate and conditions.

In the six-hour ‘Day With The Dirtman’ tour offered by Gibson Wines , guests are treated to an itinerary hosted by the Gibson family themselves, plus wine tasting at one of their favourite wineries in Eden Valley, exclusive access to other undiscovered wineries, gourmet lunch inside their fabulous 18050s cottage, barrel tasting in their private oak cellar and much more. It’ll set you back $450 per person.

The Flagship Experience at Two Hands Wines

And while we’re talking about the best-loved Barossa Valley wine tours conducted by wineries themselves, we mustn’t neglect Two Hands Wines’ ‘The Flagship Experience’ .

Two Hands Wine Tasting

Do your best to sample as much of the range as possible. (Image: South Australia Tourism Commission)

Priced at $600 per person, this outstanding journey will see wine lovers jump into a luxury 4WD and drop in to sample the goods from three of the team’s favourite single vineyard wineries before off-roading to Seppeltsfield to explore Two Hands’ very own Holy Grail vineyard.

Welcome to our website. We are Wayne and Sandy, owners of Barossa Valley Tours (formally Valley Tours, established in 1979)

We are also the owner/operators of Be consumed. tours (see www.abrm.net.au ), Adelaide Barossa Regional Minibus, and Roenfeldt Hill vineyard and wines.

It doesn’t come any better than this! Wayne is an affable local vigneron and winemaker. He is your host for most tours, and you can visit his vineyard and small winery in the Barossa, go behind the scenes and have the wine region experience of a lifetime.

There is nothing like touring as a small to medium size group. It’s up close and personal and you get see and do more. Ours are normally PRIVATE tours of the Barossa Valley and other wine regions of South Australia for 2 to 12 people. Yet we are the first to offer MERGE TOURS, whereupon you can choose for your tour to be fully private, or if you wish to enjoy a reduced cost, allow another couple or small group to join yours.

Our experience is that this can be a whole lot of fun, and you get to make new friends. So if you are just a couple and not seeking a private tour, do ask to see if there is already a tour booking for the day you are seeking, and we will ask the original booking party if they are happy to have you join them. We pass the savings onto all.

barossa valley tours

The Barossa Valley is steeped in history, with its early settlers of the 1840s and 1850s originating from both the UK and Germany...the Prussians of Silesia and Pomerania among them, escaping religious persecution. The old blacksmith's shop at Gibson Wines was the home of Anna Kowald and Johann Steicke, who married on board during their epic migration to South Australia in 1841. They raised 10 children in this pug (clay and straw) structure. A wonderful wine flight was provided by Victoria in the Gibson cellar door. #beonsumedtours #barossavalleytours #mclarenvalewinetours #southaustralia @gibsonwines ...
