Full description

Leave Adelaide and head out along the metropolitan coastline on a fascinating wine-themed day trip. Enjoy coastal views as you head to McLaren Vale, then visit a variety of wineries for guided tours and delicious tastings. Enjoy an Italian lunch with a wine-pairing experience. Then, head to d’Arenberg Cube. Nestled amongst vineyards, this 5-level “Rubiks cube” has been carefully designed to entice and excite the senses. See the Alternate Realities Museum and art installations and enjoy a formal wine tasting on Level 4, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the vineyards. Next head to Chalk Hill Wines, a family-owned winery, dedicated to making small batch, hand crafted wines of distinction. Indulge in a traditional Italian style shared lunch prepared by Cucina Di Strada, paired with four of Chalk Hill's most popular wines. Continue to Beresford Wines and choose from one of 3 tastings in their new Tasting Pavilion. Select from wine, craft beer, or spirit and gin tastings dependent on your mood. Finally, head for Wirra Wirra Vineyards, located amongst the gum trees in the historic ironstone cellars. Enjoy a tour of the cellars and a structured tasting of their range of quality wines.

Didn't feel rushed during lunch or any of the tasting sessions. Was unsure about the lack of options for lunch but my noodle dish turned out very nice.

The driver was very good. He gave a very good history of the region. The wineries we visited were very friendly. I liked Wirra Wirra the best as the lady there took the time to show us through the winery and gave us a great historical overview of the winery and surrounding areas
