Ever wanted to create your own wine blend, ring a three quarter tonne bell, hurl watermelons from a medieval siege machine or go behind the scenes of a stunning historic winery? We know we have.
Enter Wirra Wirra Vineyard.
This McLaren Vale winery holds some pretty awesome exclusive tours where you can experience all of the above and more. They’ve introduced a range of new tours that offer visitors unrivaled access to their old ironstone cellars and barrel hall. No matter your budget, you’ll find something that will give you an opportunity to see the vineyard in a way you never could from a casual visit.
Hear the stories of the late Greg Trott and see behind-the-scenes in an intimate tour in their one hour Trott’s Tales tour. Be a wine scientist or oenologist and create your own Church Block with cylinders, pipettes and your finely tuned palate to create your very own blend. Or splurge and spend 5 hours behind the scenes in their old ironstone cellars, while not only experiencing the blending class, but tasting five of their best wines and enjoying a lunch of regional produce. After all is said and done, you can finish your day by hurling watermelons from their giant catapult.
Each tour is unique and full of experiences you’ll only find at their vineyard. Led by a specialist from the Cellar Door or Winemaking team, you’ll be in knowledgeable hands and will get the chance to ask them everything you’ve ever wanted to know about wine.
Starting at just $20 per person, these tours are an opportunity to not only experience Wirra Wirra in the best light, but while you’re there, you can make a day of it and sample the killer coffee and delicious produce in their new café, Harry’s Deli. Their menu showcases a host of regional and SA suppliers, including Dawn Patrol Coffee, San Jose Smallgoods and Say Cheese. From breakfast, to paninis, share plates, and polenta, you’ll find something to satisfy your hunger while you enjoy their suggested wines.
To encourage you to see winter out in style, Wirra Wirra is giving you the opportunity to treat yourself. They’re offering a 25% discount off of any tour booking made in August! Just enter the code ‘tour25’ when you’re booking online.
