The signature touring experience for seasoned food and wine travellers is a day of private introductions to the boutique winemakers of the Barossa and Eden Valleys. And as we have great relationships with local producers, we are happy to share these with you.
Whether it be a one-on-one masterclass, a private lunch and tasting with an artisan winemaker or a vineyard walk followed by a chat in front of a fire in a winemaker’s barn, we can make these authentic wine experiences happen for you.
The Barossa is home to over 80 cellar doors and over 50 small producers who are not open to the public, allow us to introduce you to these hidden gems, up-and-comings and uber-small garagistes. Whatever your interest, we can tailor make a day of touring to suit your palate.
A typical itinerary includes pickup after breakfast by a trusted local guide in a private car, stopping in the morning at two or three boutique winemakers. Lunch may be in the private home of an artisan winemaker, paired with multiple vintages of the producer’s pride-of-house wines. The afternoon concludes with a visit to one or two additional specialist producers, whose properties are usually never open to the public, but who genuinely, welcome a guest couple or small group from The Louise into their passion-filled winery. This special tour shares the essence of what is magic and special about the Barossa and is highly recommended.
