          Amazing day! Highly recommend
          From the moment Tom picked us up in Adelaide we knew we would have an amazing day. Tom's extremely knowledgeable but isn't a nonstop talker. He quickly discovered what interested us most and provided great information. We toured 4 wineries and were treated to a fabulous lunch. We've done multiple wine tours in NZ and Australia on our trip and this was by far our favorite!

          Wonderful day in McLaren Vale with Small Batch.
          We were out with Small Batch in January 2024. We visited 4 wineries and Salopian for lunch (which was so good). We also stopped to see the D'arenberg Cube, however, we chose not to go in as it was busy. We chose to go to smaller wineries, the first one, we were like the only people there. And then at the last stop, we were on a buggy in the vines, tasting wine and seeing the landscapes. It was so fun and a different way to taste wine.

          A Fantastic Wine Tour
          I’ve done a few wine tours over the years, and this was one of the best. Our driver/guide Tom, did a terrific job of explaining the day’s itinerary, and provided commentary and answered our questions during the drive. My tour included stops at four wineries: Yangarra, Wirra Wirra, D’Arenberg (along with a visit to the cube and exceptional Salvadore Dali Exhibit) and Samuel’s Gorge. All of the hosts were excellent and explained their process and the nuances of each of their wines. A fantastic day! Thank you! Lorraine G

          An excellent day in McLaren Vale at Yangarra Estate, Lino Ramble, Gemtree Wines and Samuel’s Gorge. All the wines were delicious and our guide, Chris, was very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful! Lunch at the McLaren Vale hotel was very enjoyable too. We were glad we didn’t have to drive! Thanks to everyone!

          This was an exceptional day. Matthew was easy to work with, spent time understanding what we were interested in and organised a great day out. New wineries we hadn't tried before and a couple of old favourites. A great lunch. He is both knowledgeable and good company. It really was a superb way to see the area.

          Best Private Wine Tours
          We spent a highly enjoyable three days touring Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and Adelaide Hills with Matthew, Paul and Chris. All three were knowledgeable, exceedingly accommodating and friendly, going out of the way to ensure we were well taken care of. Matthew's recommendation of restaurants was very good, and we were fortunate to be able to taste some of the best foods in Adelaide in addition to the fine wines at the wineries we visited.

          Two very engaging days touring Barossa and McLaren Vale
          While escaping the cold in Canada, my husband and I toured both Barossa and McLaren Vale regions with Small Batch Wine Tours. Matthew, Paul and Chris shared great stories about the wines, vineyards, regions, history, viticulture and geology .... Anything we asked about, they had the answer and were most keen to share as much information as you'd like. They tailored our days with vineyards we requested which was greatly appreciated. Since returning home, it has been exciting to wander through the wine shops, to see labels from places we visited and to actually find some of our favorite wines from those days touring with Small Batch. A 5 star rating from us with sincere thanks to all of you for such informative and engaging days.

          Faultless
          We have just returned from a wonderful day in the Adelaide Hills with our guide, Paul. He was marvellous company, his Mercedes van was very comfortable, and Small Batch arranged 4 stops during the day where we enjoyed fine wine, cheese, chocolate etc and were treated like royalty. Worth every cent. Thanks Paul for a great day.

          An Exceptional Day Out
          What a wonderful day! We we’re staying in Barossa Valley for a couple of days and had the good fortune to have booked a wine tour with Small Batch Wine Tours. Pick up was punctual and although there could have been up to six people on the tour we struck lucky that nobody else had booked the same day (surprisingly). Our driver, Paul, was excellent. He had a superb knowledge of wines and vineyards as well as an exceptional knowledge of local history which made our day so much more pleasurable. We visited four cellar doors and had lunch at Harvest Kitchen which was also a delight. If you’re going to book a wine trip locally I’d highly recommend booking with Small Batch Wine Tours.

          Amazing knowledge and enjoyment
          We had a great day with Matt. His knowledge of not only the wine but of the area as well was amazing. We tried wines that I wouldn’t normally and they genuinely surprised us in a good way. Lunch was also a standout. The food was delicious. A large selection of foods without being too much. Next time we are in Adelaide, we will definitely be doing another tour to a different region.

          Fantastic Wine Tour Of Mclaren Vale
          The small batch wine tour of Mclaren Vale, is definitely one not to be missed. Paul our guide, has a wealth of knowledge of many subjects, with exceptional insight to the wine industry. The lunch was absolutely delicious. The transport was luxurious. The outstanding vineyards we visited complimented our wine tastes. We highly recommend this personalised small group wine tour, when in Adelaide. Matt and Paul’s communication and customer service from start to finish was superb.

        The small batch wine tour of Mclaren Vale, is one I recommend. Paul our fantastic guide was very knowledgeable of the history of Adelaide and the wine industry. He took great care to make sure our days was enjoyable and the style of wine we loved. We had a small group of 4 as Small Batched Wine Tour specialize in small groups and not mainstream wineries. We visited 4 wineries from Gemtree Wineries who specialize in organic and biodynamic that was a very interesting science lesson, Lino Rambel wines are hand-made with an emphasis on fruit character being the star of the show, lunch at Salopian was exceptional and this also included a glass of your choice of drink, Oliver’s Taranga Vineyard where we tasted besides great wine olive oil with fresh baked bread and last Kay Brothers with amazing views and wines. That’s the beauty of these yours as Paul asked what style of wine, we enjoy drinking. Our pick of the day was Kay Brother, which we would have never discovered. As the price was $300 dollars each this did include all the tasting at each winery and lunch, transport from Adelaide and back. Totally recommend this tour.

        What a great day! Matt picked us up at our hotel in a beautiful Mercedes van. His knowledge about Adelaide, wine and the regions was impressive and interesting. We got to go to smaller wineries that were passionate and authentic about what they did without all the arrogance of the big name brands. The wineries we went to were expertly selected, our lunch was delicious and in a beautiful location and the whole day was educational and fun. Thanks Matt! Ps I now love red wine

        As a travel consultant I am very picky and honest when it comes to leaving reviews. Mathew took wine tours to the next level! We spent 2 days, one in the Barossa Valley and one in McLaren Vale. Matthew is a true people person and is extremely knowledgeable ... and not only about the wines. His knowledge about the history of the region, of the vineyards, etc. was truly amazing and so interesting. He customized the vineyards by the types of wines we prefer, and also gave us a chance to explore grapes that we've never tasted to expand our own knowledge! He chose brilliant places for our lunches. It was a pleasure to spend these two days with him. Matthew also explained the Adelaide city area to us and gave us amazing recommendations for meals! We were not disappointed! I can honestly say that these two days were the best wine tours I've ever done and I will be recommending Small Batch Wine Tours to clients and friends!

        Our experience with Matt will go down as one of the best times we have had as a family. It was well thought out, well organised and beautifully executed. Matt is the consummate conversationalist, engaging and informative delighting both adults and the children with his stories and anecdotes. Each winery we visited was unique, with friendly, welcoming staff and every wine tasting was individual. Special mention to the team at Z wines for treating the kids to their own little food and beverage experience that they thoroughly enjoyed. We highly recommend taking one of Matt’s tours, you won’t de disappointed!

        We had an excellent day in the Barossa Valley with Tom as our guide, who was very informative about the local area as well as the wine producers. All four of the cellar doors tasting sessions we had were excellent, showcasing a great selection of wines and giving very good information about each wine. Lunch was also excellent at Jacobs Creek winery! Thoroughly recommend this trip as being a small group you get a very personal touch and our fellow travellers were great fun too!

        Hi Stephanie, Great to hear you enjoyed yourselves with our newest guide Tom. He's been drinking South Australian wines for about as long as I've been alive, so he knows a thing or two! One of our restaurant partners Harvest Kitchen recently moved into their new home at the Jacobs Creek cellar door. Very happy to hear the food is just as good, and I know the boutique (tiny production) wineries they feature by the glass would be a perfect accompaniment. Thanks very much for the feedback!

        The tour guide was excellent. His knowledge of wine, wine-making, and the area near Adelaide was great. He kept us on schedule without making us feel rushed. The vineyards we visited were mainly smaller ones which means the service was more personalized. There were 4 of us traveling together and 1 more person added to our group. The low number of people also allowed the tour guide and vineyards to gear the day towards our interests.

        Lunch was a "shared menu" which gave us a nice variety of food to sample. The day was a great one.

        The tour with Matthew met all of our expectations! We started with a little history, enjoyed sampling and buying some special jams and granola at Maggie Beers, then on to some tastings from large to micro. Our favorites were "The Dirtman" at Gibson and Ballycroft. Don't miss a presentation by Lil Joe! We had a gourmet lunch that allowed us to experience a full tasting at Harvest Kitchen. It was the perfect blend of tastings, history and food tailored to our group! Highly recommend spending a day with Matthew!

        Our small team of 3 were blown away with the quality experience provided by Matt of Small Batch.

        Matt was knowledgeable, patient and down to earth, ensuring a fantastic day out.

        His personal selection of venues were tailored to our groups interests and the quality of wine and food on offer was exceptional.

        We absolutely recommend Matt and Small Batch.
