Great friends enjoy McLaren Vale, and may the force be with them
Lauren is from Hervey Bay in Qld and was visiting her brother Henry who is with the RAAF, now located at Edinburgh. She had been on a wine tour with Adelaide Minibus on a previous occasion and wanted to use their service again. They rousted up 4 friends, and decided to do the McLaren Vale region.
Little did they know their tour leader was a Barossa vigneron, and with his knowledge of vines, the industry and wines, could offer a wine experience they could only dream of. Their day even included a private tasting of a soon to be launched rose wine, which they thoroughly enjoyed.
Visits were made to the scenic Maxwells, Serafino, Wirra Wirra, Pertaringa and Australian Boutique Wines. They even managed to squeeze in a visit to Robern Menz Chocolates, just across the road from the lunch bistro.
Adelaide Minibus supplied a cheese platter and crackers, along with chilled spring water. Lauren said this was a fabulous treat, and commended the management of AMB for introducing this option. She said they had a fantastic day and look forward to doing the Barossa when she comes to Adelaide again in a couple of months. “In fact I just love it in South Australia, and could see myself moving here – the lifestyle is unbelievable”
