You are about to do a wine tour of the Barossa Valley but you’re unsure what to wear. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!

A lot of people like to dress up and make it a fun day out when they do a wine tour. But in the end, it’s best to wear what you are most comfortable in. Most people like to wear for the top half a blouse, a nice shirt, or a bodysuit. If it’s cooler weather, you can include a denim jacket, leather jacket, or a puffer coat. After all, if it’s cold weather, you want to be warm! For the bottom half, people wear dress pants/slacks, jeans, or a skirt. Or for a full outfit, people wear either a dress, playsuit, or jumpsuit. Keep in mind you will be drinking, so you will want to be able to easily take off the playsuit or jumpsuit when needing to go to the bathroom. Shoe wise people tend to wear stylish sneakers, boots, heels, or flats. Realistically, you want shoes that are comfortable and easy to walk in.

Now we have gone over what you can wear, let’s get into some of the wine tours available in the Barossa!

Wine and Food Lover’s Barossa Valley Tour

This wine tour has delicious wines and food from the Barossa Valley. Your first stop is Whispering Wall before going to the first winery, Chateau Yaldara. Next, you make a quick visit to the town of Tanunda. In this town, you can explore the main strip of shops and grab a snack or coffee. Then we head out to lunch and some wine tasting at Peter Lehmann Winery. You’ll get a selection of cured meats, cheeses, and freshly baked bread. There are also vegetarian options available for lunch. When we have had our lunch, we do a wine tasting at Lambert Estate Wines. Before the last winery, we look at all of the Barossa Valley from Mengler Hill Lookout. We finally go to our last winery of the day, Wolf Blass.

Barossa Valley and Hahndorf Wine Tour

The Barossa Valley and Hahndorf Wine tour explores the Barossa Valley, and the German town; Hahndorf. This tour runs on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Start the day having morning tea and a wine tasting at Jacobs Creek Estate. Before your next winery, you go to Mengler Hill Lookout to have stunning views of Barossa Valley. For lunch and more wine tasting, you go to Lambert Estate. Then you go to the Herbig Family Tree which is a large hollow red gum tree that is about 300 to 500 years old! Then we finally go to Hahndorf to explore the German town and also visit Beerenberg Farm Shop.

Keep in mind some wineries may change but the tour will still take you to one with a similar experience.
