Langhorne Creek Wine Region Small Group Day Trip from Adelaide or Glenelg
Enjoy a relaxed and unhurried small group tour with a maximum of 10 people. Langhorne Creek is South Australia’s undiscovered wine region, approximately a 1-hour drive South East of Adelaide.
Visit the National Trust listed winery - Bleasdale Vineyards to see their huge red gum basket press. Frank Potts' greatest achievement was a basket press, constructed in 1862 using a ten metre, 3.5 tonne red gum tree as a lever rather than the traditional screw mechanism. Frank claimed the technology, which he had first observed in Portugal, provided a slower, more gradual pressing of the grapes without any mechanical intervention.
Unique to Langhorne Creek is Cleggett winery - taste the only white Cabinet Sauvignon wine in the world! (Open only on Weekends). A chance discovery on a Cabernet Sauvignon vine in 1977 has resulted in two of Australia’s newest and most exciting grape varieties – the White Cabernet Sauvignon we call Shalistin and the Bronze Cabernet Sauvignon we call Malian.
Lake Breeze Wines where you consume the most delectable lunch, as they say ‘fit for a King’. Their fantastic menu features regional platters and seasonal soups & pies.
Enjoy Bremerton Wines and soak up the ambience of the historic stone barn cellar door or Angus Plains to enjoy a beautiful selection of unique wines.
With your indulgence comparatively concluded your passage back to your lodgings’ takes in the Southern Lofty Ranges scenic drive, where you’ll experience the quaint villages of Strathalbyn, Meadows and Clarendon. You will see the view of Adelaide from the hills - and beautiful she is, before arriving ‘back in town.
