It was cold and sometimes wet but David and his friends seemed to enjoy themselves. After loading “ALL” their eskys it was a quick trip to Bird in Hand winery for a taste and morning tea. From there we popped across the way to Nepenthe and more tasting and eating a photo taking were in order(still trying to work out whether my “selfie” worked or not). Someone then decided to drive across to Hahndorf with everyone in tow(it’s a driver thing!). After a long lunch the group headed to Pike and Joyce for some more coffee and cake, oh and some wine tasting too! Then it was time to wander home and work on the night!
Well it was a great day in the Adelaide Hills wine region! Julie and her friends chose Adelaide Mini Bus for their transport provider on the day in The Adelaide Hills. First stop was Nepenthe Wines. After lengthy visit with the cellar door team it was off to Shaw and Smith. A restful visit lead to a quick trip into The Hahndorf Inn for lunch. Following a delicious lunch it was off to Bird in Hand for a relaxing final visit before the long trip home through chaotic peak hour traffic.
After a leisurely start to the day and a quick trip South, Meagan and her visitors jumped right into the tastings at Paxton Wines enjoying the bi-dynamic results of David and the teams efforts leading to past vintages. After a quick retail indulgence it was off to sample some of Oliver’s Taranga Vineyards marvelous wares. More was added to the collection and then off to Coriole for something to eat and some more tasting. Meanwhile Wayne(our resident cellar rat) was of spending his hard earned pasos on wine at Rosemount’s Annual Easter Sale(again) After a delicious lunch and some tasty sample it was on to Samuel Gorge. Upon arrival it was obvious what time of the year it was. That’s right . . . . new vintage release weekend. Well a lovely time was spent there and the new releases were getting the “thumbs up” as were Justin and the team at cellar door. A last minute stop at Paxton Wines for some more additions to the cellar and it was a quick hop home to end the day.
We at Adelaide Mini Bus thank Meagan and her friends for choosing us and hope they will join us again for another “wander through the vineyards”.
