Barossa Valley Platinum

Located 60 kilometres northeast of Adelaide, the Barossa Valley is a major wine producing region and tourist destination. Its cool summers and rainy winters are perfectly suited for red wine production, particularly Shiraz and richly flavoured Cabernet.

You will leave the train in Two Wells to embark on your journey of the senses. Travel past flat farm lands before arriving at the picturesque rolling hills of the Barossa Ranges which overlook a colourful patchwork of vineyards, dotted with historic churches, stone buildings and cottages beckoning you to explore.

The hospitality of the local community is memorable from the warm welcome of a cellar door, to the friendly hello and the many stories to be told by the locals the Barossa Valley will welcome you. As a Platinum guest, you will tour the stunning St Hugo Cellar door. Steeped in tradition and incorporating the best of contemporary elegance your tour will take you through the Estate, vineyard and cork trees. Enjoy a wine-tasting hosted in the private underground tasting room, featuring past, present and future wines. You will experience first-hand why wine collectors and connoisseurs the world over covet the many wines proudly crafted by St Hugo.

Venture on to Yalumba Winery where you will enjoy a private wine tasting hosted in the Family Tasting Room before joining remaining guests for pre-dinner drinks in the Cooperage. Here a wine Ambassador will take you through the cooperage process. Enjoy a sumptuous dinner served in the enchanting Signature Cellar, where you can sit back, relax and enjoy a glass or two with new friends you have made.
