New tour is heaven for wine and chocolate lovers

Chocolate and wine lovers will be in food and wine heaven with the launch of a new itinerary for Adelaide Sightseeing's intimate full-day Barossa Food and Wine Experience Tour. 

The tour now visits the new Barossa Valley Chocolate Company making it a day of wine, chocolate, more wine, chocolate, cheese and treats.


The tour begins at Pindarie where vigneron Wendy Allan offers a range of tastings and cheeses in the charm of sandstone stables converted into a cellar door and cafĂ©. 

Then it is coffee and cake on the verandah, or in winter, cosied up around the fire overlooking the bucolic views dominated by shiraz vines.

Then the tour moves on to Maggie Beer's Farm Shop to see and sample the famous food identity's world of local produce and a close encounter with the The Cook and the Chef' kitchen. 

Lunch is at Lambert Estate, with panoramic vineyard views, halls of local art, and a balcony in summer or by a crackling fire mid-year. Guests will be treated to wine tastings along with family anecdotes and wine notes. 

After a hearty two-course long-table lunch, visitors enjoy a coffee and Chocolatier (chocolate port). 

After lunch a photo stop at Mengler's Hill offers sweeping valley views, before a tasting at the Barossa Valley Chocolate Company.

Sit down to a flight of local Vineyard Road wines and chocolates, with an expert guide revealing why they work so well together together. 

The coach then meanders back to Adelaide through the Adelaide Hills. 

The Barossa Food and Wine Experience Tour is priced at $135 per adult and includes morning pick up and evening set down at selected Adelaide hotels, full-day guided small coach tour with expert commentary by local driver/guide, lunch, all activities and tastings.

The tour departs Adelaide Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Call 1300 769 762 or visit www.adelaidesightseeing.com.au
