    Day 1

    During your private transfer from Adelaide to the Barossa Valley, you'll have the option to visit Henschke wines for a tasting of their iconic Barossa reds, and the opportunity to make a purchase – why not splurge on that Hill of Grace? On arrival this afternoon at Hutton Vale Farm you’ll settle into the wonderful J.H.A Stone Cellar before joining a member of the Angas family for a private tasting of their vineyard wines. If you’d like to stretch your legs afterwards, there are plenty of walks nearby and your hosts will be happy to show you around their special property. Tonight you’ll enjoy dinner at one of Barossa’s best restaurants, Vintners, with three courses served before your driver whisks you back to Hutton Vale.

St Hugo is next, with an Estate tour and comprehensive tasting before sitting down to a four-course lunch with wine matches. After lunch your final stop is Seppeltsfield where’ you’ll have the unique opportunity to taste an aged fortified (tawny port) from your birth year straight from the barrel.
