My husband and boys were lucky to have a ride on the trike around the discovery park barossa whilst touring with the surise weather team after winning a competition. The gentleman riding the bike was very friendly and helpful. My boys being under 8 could only go around within the caravan park slowly. But friends we were with, went for a ride and just loved the experience. I would definitely like to do it again and try out some wineries along the way, perfect way to get around, seeing the sights, taste testing some wines and having a designated driver!

Barossa Balloon Adventures

Barossa Balloon Adventures offer a 1 hour sunrise hot air balloon flight with a delicious Barossa breakfast after the flight. Barossa Balloon Adventures have been ballooning in the Barossa Valley for over 30 years. Which makes us the longest running ballooning company in SA (since 1986), therefore the most experienced at flying over the Barossa. Justin (the pilot and owner of the business) has a safety record second to none. Our reputation for professionalism, excellence, fun and above all, safety are at the heart of our operation. That’s why we’re number 1 on TripAdvisor. So come and experience the magic and wonder for yourself. We love what we do and we’re sure you’ll love it too !!!

Be Consumed Tours

Full private day tours of South Australian wine regions, incl Barossa, Clare, Hills and McLaren Vale. An amazing tour experience, hosted by a Barossa Valley vigneron.Ideal for groups but we take couples as well. When in Barossa, get to learn how to prune or pick grapes (season permitting) see the Roenfeldt Hill vineyard and its Corkscrew Method vines. Your host, Wayne, loves to cook you a gourmet lunch or dinner at his vineyard too. It is quite unique in the world to be able to tour a premier wine region with an award winning winemaker who has strong culinary skills as well.

Reviewed By Gar P

I booked a full day tour through Wayne for my Mum’s 60th birthday. On the day he was very welcoming, passionate and down to earth.
The wineries we visited were amazing and we were spoilt by the winery staff, including extra free tastings and a tour around their wine cellar which was very special.
Wayne was very patient and we did not feel rushed.

We had a morning cheeseboard which was set in a beautiful location by the lake at 1847 wines. The 3 course lunch was at Wayne’s small winery shed with a beautiful view of the surrounding area.
He warned us that his shed was very simple and not to expect too much, but we found it to be very well planned out and clean. He had everything set up and in place to provide us a delicious lunch. The whole experience was very personal which we really enjoyed.

He also shared with us his future plans for improving his winery facilities which was exciting to hear and really shows how passionate he is about providing the best experience for his guests.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants a personal experience by a very knowledgeable wine maker.

Thank you again Wayne for your great company on the day and making my family’s first wine tour one that will very hard to beat.

Yelland & Papps

The Yelland and Papps story perhaps doesn’t fit in with the usual line spun by wineries in the Barossa - six generations of this, five generations of that. It is a story about new beginnings, a story about a young couple, with a young family, forging their own path within a wine region as first generation winegrowers. While not locals....there is a saying in the Barossa that you have to have a grand-parent “in the ground” before you are considered a local.....Susan Yelland and Michael Papps call the Barossa home and are as passionate as any sixth-generation Barossan about the region, its vines and its history and its characters. Michael has lived in the Barossa for the past 20 years, working in the wine industry in a number of sectors from winery work to bottling lines and wife Susan, moved to the Barossa in 1999 from the Yorke Peninsula after time spent in Adelaide and New York studying at the Windows of the World wine school. Today Michael and Susan own a five acre property on the valley floor out side of Nuriootpa and have two young children, Peyton and Campbell. With no prior study in winemaking they started producing wines from 2005, initially only for family and friends and Susan and Michael soon realised that their passion lay in the wines and vines of this famous region and Yelland & Papps was born.....and the passion runs deep. It encompasses not only the old-vine material of the Barossa, names familiar to all such as Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache and Mataro all make an appearance in the Yelland & Papps range. It’s a passion for the future stars of the Barossa, varieties such as Vermentino, Carignan, Roussanne, Barbera, Dolcetto, Primitivo, varieties that are well-suited to Australia’s most famous wine region and the proof is in a glass of Yelland & Papps wines. They are passionate about running a small winery and living in a sustainable fashion, of using minimal inputs during the winemaking process to allow the fruit to speak in a clear voice, uncluttered by over zealous oak and a heavy hand. Passionate about the produce they farm, a visit to the charming Yelland & Papps cellar door will see you sampling their Delight, Devote and Divine wines but seasonal produce fresh from the property - walnuts, lentils, jams, terrines and vegetables are all on offer. Rated five red stars and one of the “Ten Best New Wineries in Australia” by James Halliday, the wines of Yelland & Papps have certainly hit a chord with wine press gaining rave reviews in James Halliday’s Wine Companion, Nick Stocks Good Wine Guide, Winefront, The Adelaide Review Hot 100. But it is the wine drinker that has come to love and appreciate the wines of the new Barossa that Yelland & Papps represent, balanced, flavoursome and food-friendly offerings that are produced in a thoughtful fashion, respecting the history of the Barossa and the land from which the come from. In a relatively short space of time, Yelland & Papps have become one of the brightest stars of the “New Barossa”. One of the producers leading the region into the future while showing a deep respect for the past, experimenting with new varieties and techniques and aiming for a sustainable future that they can pass on to their next generation. The wines and the philosophy behind them speaks volumes.

Reviewed By Roedig - Stellenbosch, South Africa

This lovely Winery situated on the outskirts of Nuriootpa was purchased in the vine pulling days and just recently moved the tasting room to the old house. Strange having the house as a tasting room, but adds to the atmosphere. A vast range of wines were offered for tasting with several exceptional single sites and then elite single sites. We were lucky enough to taste a slightly older wine which had been opened for another tasting. The wines age well.

Reviewed By Geoff P - Melbourne, Australia

My wife and I had a wonderful experience when we visited Penfolds Cellar Door. I must say that considering Penfolds are an iconic wine label in Australia, producing world class vintages, that I expected to be greeted by stuffy, perhaps even pompous staff conducting tastings. Let me say that nothing could be further from the truth. We were greeted by Annie, who was extremely helpful. She described the wines we tasted with down to earth language that we, as enthusiastic if somewhat inexperienced consumers of wine could understand. Annie made the whole experience one to remember. Thank you Annie. I hope the management know what an asset they have in you!

Popped in Sunday afternoon. The young gentleman was a wonderful host. Extremely knowledgeable. Loved hearing stories about his family's history of the vineyard. You could clearly see his passion in the vineyard and wine industry.
