Visitors from all over the globe head to the Barossa to sample its world-famous red wines, particularly Shiraz. With wineries extending as far as the eye can see and stretching across the rolling hills, the Barossa Valley is truly an oenophile's paradise.

But while the wine is a major attraction of the area, there are also other fascinating things about the region that bring visitors in as well. In fact, many wine tours Adelaide combine food and wine tasting with other points of interest.

Experience the Best of the Barossa Valley

Whether you are a wine collector or you just appreciate a nice glass of red, you'll love tasting your way through the Barossa Valley. Our tours are designed so you can relax and not worry about the small details during your trip - after all, you're on holiday!

If you're looking for a full-day excursion where you can see the best that the Barossa has to offer, look no further than the Barossa Valley Tour with Hahndorf trip, operated by Great Sights.

To start the day, you will be picked up at your central Adelaide accommodation if you are staying in the CBD area. If not, you can meet up with the group at the Adelaide Central Bus Station.

Once you're on board, sit back and put your mind at ease as you enjoy the scenic drive through the Adelaide Hills. In this region, you will find a diverse landscape that includes rows of vineyards, classic Australian bushland and quaint European-style villages.

The melding of these varied landscapes and architectural styles is what makes this area so unique and charming. There is truly nowhere else like it in Australia.

As the tour continues, you will also have a chance to see Woodside, an old mill town that is now famous as the home of Melba's Chocolate Factory, a "working" tourism factory.

You'll stop for a wine tasting at Seppeltsfield Winery, one of Australia's oldest and most famous wineries. It was established in the 1850s by Joseph and Johanna Seppelt and is known for its Para Tawny collection.

While you're there, you might like to purchase a bottle of wine (or two) to bring home and share with family and friends as you recollect your experience. You can also ask the Seppeltsfield staff about shipping bottles back to your hometown.

After sipping your way through Seppeltsfield, you'll head over to Wolf Blass Winery for an exclusive tour and tasting. This is another historic winery that was formed in 1966 by a German immigrant named Wolfgang Franz Otto Blass. While you're here, you'll also enjoy a delicious two-course lunch and have a chance to mingle with your fellow tour guests.

Once you've experienced the best of winery tours Adelaide at Seppeltsfield and Wolf Blass, you and your companions will return to the tour vehicle and start heading toward one of South Australia's most historic towns, Hahndorf.

Additional Points of Interest in the Barossa Valley

Even if your companions don't enjoy wine, they will certainly enjoy the second half of the trip. Your tour group will visit the town of Hahndorf, which is Australia's oldest German settlement.

The town was established in 1839 by German Lutheran immigrants who had recently arrived in Port Adelaide. The settlers consisted of 38 families who named the town Hahndorf (Hahn's village) after Captain Dirk Hahn, who brought the families to Australia from Europe and helped them negotiate a land settlement in the Adelaide Hills.

These days, Hahndorf is a lovely hillside town that is popular with tourists, and there are several must-do items while you're in Hahndorf. First, take the time to stroll through the old-fashioned streets, lined with quaint shops and homes. You will likely notice the abundance of historic bakeries, craft shops, art galleries, cafes and other small shops. Feel free to pop into the places that interest you and take a look around. This is a fantastic place to purchase souvenirs for your loved ones back at home.

Also, while you're in Hahndorf, experience a local custom by purchasing a scone with jam and cream - and don't forget to pair it with a piping hot cup of tea or coffee. Or if you're looking for something heartier, Hahndorf has a diverse restaurant scene (of course, many have a focus on German cuisine).

Visiting the town of Hahndorf is a pleasant change of pace from the vineyard tours and provides a different perspective on Australian culture that isn't often seen. The residents are proud of their town's German heritage, which brings a certain irresistible charm to the small town.

Overall, the Barossa Valley Day Tour with Hahndorf trip makes for a fantastic family day out. Children are welcome to join on the tour, and infants under four years old can attend for free (as long as they can sit on their parent's lap).

The tour operates daily all year long, departing from Adelaide at 9.15am and returning to the city by 5.15pm. You're sure to love this tour, as it hits many highlights of the gorgeous Barossa Valley without trying to jam too many activities into one day.
