Delighted with Barossa Gourmet and Adelaide Minibus

Alice and her 23 netball/uni friends decided to book a minibus and driver for the Barossa Gourmet Festival. Vin’s/Adelaide Minibus was her choice of provider after a web search and having gained some quotes, then speaking with their helpful staff .

The group wanted a leisurely day, not so much a tour, so selected Seppeltsfield and Chateau Tanunda for wine tastings. Then they would enjoy Whistlers Wines  for lunch and party with a band, playing in the marquee. They had been to Whistlers  the year before, so knew it is a well run outfit. The food was fabulous too, with gourmet lamb burgers, spatchcock and the range of sweets included a traditional beinstick.

Seppeltsfield was absolutely lovely said Alice, her favourite wine being the sweeter style riesling.

“Andy, our driver for the day, was great, obviously very experienced and helpful. We would certainly recommend Vins/Adelaide Minibus….Five Ts….trustworthy and timely….tremendously terrific transportation!”

Seppeltsfield partnering with Jam Factory for showcasing glass art

Historic Seppeltsfield has been successful in attracting a $110,000 (one for one) Federal Govt grant to bring the artwork of Adelaide’s internationally renowned Jam Factory, to the Barossa . The old stage coach house of Seppeltsfield is to be converted into an exquisite gallery, making it an even greater must-do stopover for Barossa tourists. Other grant recipients are the Geber family’s equally historic Chateau Tanunda, and Jacob’s Creek.

Seppeltsfield has long been a favourite place to visit in the Barossa, with its iconic date palm lined roads and grounds. It is the only place in the world where visitors can taste wines of their birth year from the barrel.

Along with on-site beer making, a cooper, a chocolateer and now the Jam Factory’s art, it fits nicely with the drive of Tourism SA to showcase what is new about the Barossa and its push to boost state tourism. 

The Leader Newspaper (Wed 15th August) reported that Chateau Tanunda’s fabulous facility will soon boast a new bar area and a phone app which will be able to help non-English speaking tourists with information about the wines, winery and cellar door.

Seppelstfield, Chateau Tanunda and Jacobs Creek can all be included in your wine tour itinerary when you book select tour types with Adelaide Minibus or Vins Buses.
