Taking a tour through wine country is the best way to truly experience the art of wine tasting.
A wine tour allows you to relax, take in the scenery and enjoy the experience of touring a region’s best wineries. Best of all, you can enjoy as much wine as you like!
Your guide will be well versed in the region and its history. Plus they will know all its hidden treasures, which are the best wineries to visit, and are often privy to secret boutique wineries that you otherwise might never have known about. After all they’re a local and wine touring is their specialty.
Oftentimes, you’ll be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at a winery and what it takes to be a winemaker. You’ll get to meet the winemakers who expertly take the humble grape and transform it into a bottle of fine wine, and see firsthand what it takes to craft that perfect drop of vino.
And the best part? You will get to sample the wine.
Wine tasting in itself is an art form. One that can only be learned from the experts. Wine tour guides are experts in the art of wine tasting and are all too willing to share their passion with others. They can show you the best way to savour, and experience, a good wine and illustrate why wine tasting is entirely a sensory experience.
Australia’s wine regions are rich in history with some vineyards boasting vines that date back centuries. It’s not uncommon for wine making to run in the family, a love of fine wine can span generations, or for a family descendent to be operating the very same winery their ancestors established, often as far back as the 1800s.
Taking a wine tour doesn’t have to be a tedious affair. There are a variety of tours available in most wine regions including bespoke tours, discovery tours where you can take in the wonders of the region as well as enjoying its wine, and small group tours that you can enjoy with a select group of friends.
So, if you’re heading to wine country to take in some of our country’s best wines, why not join a wine tasting tour. You may find yourself a new favourite wine and learn some fascinating Australian wine history along the way.
