Launched in October 2022, Partner N Wine is a tourism company that is introducing a new way to experience South Australia’s booming wine industry.

Have you ever needed a cab to get you back after a cab sav? Ever had to drive your husband back, stone-cold sober, while he talks about how you should hit up the Hills more often and check out more vineyards?

Moana couple, Paul Bidmeade and Sarah Hughes own and operate their tour service, Partner N Wine, which transports sightseers to sites like Bec Hardy Wines, Hugo Wines and Boho Farm.

The soon-to-be-wed couple strives to make South Australian tourist hotspots easier and accessible for groups of 2 – 7 people. Their mission statement is simple: Partner N Wine will be your designated driver.

Tours, transport and transfers are available, including wedding transport for any venue in McLaren Vale. This includes night-time transfers for up to seven guests.

“We want to create unforgettable memories for small groups, visiting some of the best cellar doors, breweries and distilleries in McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Langhorne Creek,” Paul said.

“We know first-hand how difficult it is to find wedding transport, as we are still yet to find affordable transport for our own wedding in April. We offer pick up as late as 11pm,” he added.

Those difficult trips that are bogged down in planning, scheduling and, to be honest, designated driving… Well, they’ve come to an end.

From McLaren Vale and across the Fleurieu, these local pillars of the Peninsula have made a living from spotlighting and supporting the wealth of wine, gin, breweries and scenery across SA.

As one of the great wine capitals of the world, Adelaide is spoilt for choice when it comes to cellar doors within one hour of the city centre.

Adelaide has been the envy of the world for many years, with over 200 world class cellar doors within one hour of Rundle Mall.

“We have had a great response from the community, who love the peace-of-mind that comes with return transport within 50km of McLaren Vale,” Paul said.

The new business has been well-received, with many enjoying the flexibility to be able to choose up to four venues to visit.

Their ‘Event Planner’ extravaganza takes the group input of your fellow partners in wine and devises a route to quench your thirst according to your palate. Hit up three hand-picked venues to pop some corks and savour the flavour of some spectacular wine tastings, then Partner N Wine will top it off with a pizza or platter for lunch, starting at only $150 a head.

Partner N Wine is a convenient way to avoid the roundabouts roads and roundabout planning to enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
