Mt Barker Grape Escape
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Albany, WA
- Product code: MBGE
Meander through backroads to taste outstanding wines from wineries of the Mt Barker region. This region has a characteristically cool climate with slow ripening times which allows for the development of rich flavours and quality grape juice.
Wine tasting begins at Gilbert Wines, home to the ‘lads’ and where a morning coffee might be preferred. Next stop is at Arcadia Wines with sensational views to the Porongorup Ranges from the deck and where Wilson Brewing beer on tap. At Plantagenet wines you are guided through the back rooms on a private tour of the cellar workings, before you are taken to the tasting bench. Choose your wine and make your purchase to accompany a scrumptious shared platter lunch of local produce. Onwards the tour will take you to Galafrey Wines and family owned winery. From there to West Cape Howe where you can sample wine, olive oil or their own brand of coffee! Our Busy Blue Bus guide will take care of the skipper duties, whilst you relax and enjoy the scenery and the sensational flavours of the region. ‘Magical and memorable’.
