This one-day McLaren Vale wine tour with a visit to Hahndorf is a must-do if you have some spare time in Adelaide. The tour includes comfortable return transport from Adelaide and a friendly local guide.

The next wine tasting will take place at Shingleback Winery. This family-owned winery serves up a spectacular range of fine wines. You can also choose to enjoy a cheese platter while sampling wine.

After a day of sightseeing and wine tasting, you will head back to Adelaide by way of Glenelg.

Travellers have enjoyed the wine tour so much, that we offer a half-day tour as well. The half-day option is perfect for anybody who can’t commit to an entire day trip. This half-day McLaren Vale wine experience includes all the same stops except for Mount Lofty and Hahndorf.
