A Truly Barossan Wine Experience - High-End Private Day Tour

By Small Batch Wine Tours
About
Amazing history, stunning scenery, fabulous food, and some of the best wines in the Barossa - this tour has it all! We cut no corners in creating the perfect truly Barossan wine experience for you, all you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy. Start off at one of the region’s historic wineries making traditional Barossa wines. Next it’s somewhere at the forefront of new varieties, odd blends, and uncommon techniques, for the less-traditional side of the Barossa. Limber up and get your palate off-piste! A seasonally inspired multi-course lunch with wine awaits you, before finishing the day with a tasting at one of the region's more premium-focussed wineries. Of course, if there’s somewhere you’d prefer or want to get more off the beaten track, just let us know! We love to create more bespoke itineraries to suit our guests.

          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

          Excellent day and fabulous wines!
          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!

          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!

          Well worth it!
          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.

          Barossa and McLaren Vale Tours
          We spent 2 excellent days on tours of Barossa and McLaren Vale with Paul and Matt. Both guides were very knowledgeable and entertaining. They took care to chose the cellar doors and wineries that suited our interests. The Lunch at Harvest Kitchen was truly exceptional with a wonderful selection of sharing plates. They also gave us excellent recommendations for Restaurants in Adelaide and Glenelg. Highly recommend

          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.

          And outstanding experience
          This was the second time that we have experienced a Small Batch Wine Tour, and it was a fabulous day in the Barossa Valley. Matt’s knowledge of the area and wine is outstanding, but more importantly, it’s his ability to fine tune the days offering with what we the customer was after. Specifically, Russell and I were interested in boutique wineries with a point of difference. Matt knows the area and he knows the producers so the experience is so much more than just wine tasting. We had a wonderful day, including a delicious lunch at Fino. If we come to Adelaide again, we would not hesitate to book with Small Batch wine Tours.

        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.

        Our day with Matthew/Small Batch Wine Tours was a highlight of our entire Australian adventure. He is not only super knowledgeable about wines and the Barossa Valley, he is articulate, well versed in local history, and very entertaining. Matthew took us to some incredible artisan wineries that we never would have found on our own, and the respect those vintners have for him is evident in the way they allow him to bring guests right into their operations. We learned much about this beautiful area, and had an outstanding lunch at one of the wineries he had chosen for us - REALLY special. Of course we ended up buying some excellent wines at all of the wineries we visited and thoroughly enjoyed those during the remainder of our vacation! This day was not just a "wine tour'....Matthew stopped at some places he felt we MUST see along the way that we SO enjoyed and were so glad we got to visit, some unique sights and experiences that we might have missed on our own. Can't say enough good about this young man and the way he operates - it was a day we will never forget and he is a quality tour guide!!

I'm always happy to share my passion and knowledge for all things South Australian, and it's a delight to connect with people such as yourself and Dave on so many other fronts. Very pleased to have made your time in Adelaide memorable.

        The three of us joined Matt and one other guest on a tour tailored to our wine preferences. Matt provided a friendly, informative tour. It was like touring wineries with a well-informed friend. He provided lots of information about Barossa Valley, the wineries (Two Hands, Artisans of Barossa Valley, Standish, and Ballycroft), and some AU history. Everything about the day was easy; Matt picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. The vehicle was very comfortable. We loved all the wineries we visited and learned so much. Matt arranged for the wine we purchased from all the vineyards to be shipped. The whole day was one of the highlights of our trip. We highly recommend Small Batch Wine Tours and will certainly take another tour if we're lucky enough to travel back to Adelaide again!

        Where to begin???
        Matthew was extremely pleasant, outgoing, knows his area and wines and was very helpful to Us for our first tour of some wineries in this region of The Barossa. Matthew picked Us up from our accommodation in Handorf and from that moment, we were in for a special day. First stop a private tour at Henschke with Amalee (who was very lovely and helpful) and that was an incredible couple of hours. Learning the history of the winery and walking through the vineyards, then followed up with a private sampling of their wines. Very enjoyable and amazing time there! And a few bottles to dispatch home!
        Then onto Seppeltsfield for a 4/5 course lunch at Fino, (extremely delicious) then followed with a private tour with Nigel. Again, amazing history, the surrounding buildings and then we had a "taste of our birth year" experience!!! Fantastic!!!! Their fortified wines - a taste sensation.
        From there we went onto Penfolds, through some gorgeous countryside, passing vineyard after vineyard, breathtaking. Nicole was our private guide on all things at Penfolds and to see and hear about "The Grange" - incredible. More wines dispatched home.
        Then back to our accommodation through some more amazing scenery.
        We were totally spoilt for the day and it was thanks to Matthew, who arranged everything for Us. We could not have organised anything as wonderful as what Matthew did. He is fantastic at what he does. Thank You Matthew and all the Wineries for making our first time to the Barossa an unforgettable experience!!!!!

        My partner and I had the best day with Matt. Not only was he able to track down wineries that we would have never found ourselves, he had a fantastic knowledge of the area and the wines being made. He also was able to recommend and get us into some of the best restaurants around for the following days and recommend the cutest accomodation in Tanunda. Overall such a great day. We will be back!

        We had a great day in Barossa Valley. Matthew customized the day and the wineries we went to based on our interests. He is very knowledgeable about the wines and the area, and he clearly enjoys sharing that information with guests. He was able to take us to lesser known boutique wineries as well as more prominent wineries, and we tasted some interesting and wonderful wines. We were able to get a real sense of the wines produced in Barossa. We would highly recommend this tour.

        Sylvia, what an unreal day out that was! From the old to the new, the big names to the undiscovered - we really saw a great cross section of what the Barossa has to offer. Many thanks for your great review, and I know you'll have plenty of amazing stories to share with friends and family back home in the US.
