Enjoy being collected from Adelaide city and sit back, relax and let us drive you aboard the South Coast Wine Train tour.
The South Coast Wine Train tour operated by Rail Tours Australia and Beyond the Vine Wine Tours in conjunction with the Steamranger Heritage Railway takes the hard work out of wine touring whilst adding some of the nostalgia of yesteryear thrown in for good measure.
Travel aboard the Steamranger "Southern Encounter' train from Mount Barker to Strathalbyn, where you begin your wine touring through the vineyards of the Langhorne Creek, Currency Creek and the Fleurieu wine regions.
People are starting to talk more about Langhorne Creek as the hidden gem of the Australian wine regions which is surprisingly close to Adelaide.
Bremerton, Bleasdale, Lake Breeze, Kimbolton, Rusticana, names we have all heard of and have enjoyed by the glass or the bottle, but didn't know where they came from. Learn more as we visit 2 wineries for tastings and tour the region prior to stopping for a scrumptious 2 course lunch.
Next arrive at the Port of Goolwa, home to the Steam Exchange Brewery, Fleurieu Distillery and 90 Mile Wines in the Wharf Barrel Shed. More tastings can be enjoyed at your own leisure or you can grab a bargain at the local markets.
Enjoy the time at Goolwa prior to boarding the South Coast Wine Train for your return journey back up the hills to Mount Barker.
Sit back, unwind and watch the world travel past your carriage window as we head through the wheat fields and farmland back towards Strathalbyn and Mount Barker. You may wish to take the opportunity to enjoy a local produce platter from the regions for your return wine train journey.
On return to Mount Barker, say farewell to your travelling friends or be returned to Adelaide city with a new experience, a bottle or two of great local wine and memories you can share for a life time.
This tour operates only on selected Sundays between May to November and limited seats are available on each tour.
