Inspirational wine experiences where you will share directly with wine producers in a tutored wine experience in the heart of the Barossa Valley
There are some seriously old vines in the Barossa. Way back in the 1800’s settlers planted vines from cuttings brought over on ships in wet hessian sacks – they’ve not only survived 2 world wars & global warming but thanks to the non proliferation of phylloxera* in Australia, they are the oldest continuously producing Vitis Vinifera grape vines in the world.
Our Emerging Talent Wine Tour will excite you with new wine styles, lateral winemaking and different takes on fruit source and terroir. There is some serious innovation happening that is centred around minimal intervention, wild yeast creations and the occasional ‘let it ride’ method.
The Long Way To The Top Tour aims to showcase those wine producers in the Barossa Valley that have stuck it through thick and thin and are producing some fantastic (but underrated) wines in the region – the kind of folk who walk past you in the airport after a tough gig selling their stories in board rooms and dining rooms across the globe.
The Western Ridge Dwellers tour is a tour of discovery of the wine producers and cellar doors in this unique pocket of the Barossa with it’s mineral soils and harsh micro climate (often referred to locally as ‘the desert’) but also unique styles. The people out on the ridge are hard working types that face a very different part of the Barossa that we aim to show you.
You may have noticed this bright red mark on products in the Barossa Valley – the Barossa Trust Mark.
Founded on Origin, Integrity, Quality, Environment and Community it is awarded to food, tourism and wine products.
In this experience we aim to show you the best producers that have earned a BTM so you too can ‘Trust The Mark’.
So you’re finding it hard to choose one of my custom wine experiences?
Why not try a ‘Mixed Bag’ Wine Legends experience? You can let me know what you would like from each of the current experiences and I will curate a personalised tour just for you.
Just like a party mix of lollies a ‘mixed bag’ makes a perfect gift or surprise for that certain someone who likes the best of everything.

It was the perfect mix of learning, experiencing and having fun! Highly recommend Wine Legends and we look forward to our next Barossa experience with Ben!
