With our Adventure packages, it is up to you whether we visit any of the 27 wineries along the Coonawarra strip or just our favourites. Our guides have an extensive knowledge of the region, its history, viticultural practices, winemaking procedures and can get you unique access to wine industry personnel and areas normally off-limits to the public. We have packaged some ideas that might interest you more than just being chauffeured around with the top industry experts at your beck and call...
