Bespoke Wine Tours in a Retro Car ...
Unfortunately, due to the current COVID-19 situation, we have decided to suspend all new tour bookings for the next couple of months. We feel under the current circumstances, this is the most responsible action to take. We look forward to being back on the road soon.
Nostalgia Tours of the Adelaide Hills
Tour the Adelaide Hills in retro style. 1965 is all about nostalgia, a wistful yearning for simpler times. What could be more nostalgic than the iconic cars of the 1960's.
Our mostly original 1965 Chrysler Valiant Safari, affectionately known as Carol, is available for personalised 1/2 day or day tour experiences providing a unique look around the Adelaide Hills and surrounds. We have some fabulous itineraries, visiting cellar doors and other delicious destinations in the Northern Adelaide Hills region or tell us where you would like to go and we'll take you.
Carol is an approved chauffeur vehicle, albeit in the guise of a 1960's family wagon. She is equipped with big, comfy bench seats, retrofitted climate control, authentic Onkaparinga Woollen Mill picnic rugs, a blue Malley vintage esky and Bluetooth stereo with a carefully curated 1960's soundtrack. She has a 225 cubic inch slant 6 engine, if that's important to you.
Whether you are a wine connoisseur or a wine expert wannabe, we can tailor a tour to suit you. Being locals, we can take you on the back roads to some exquisite but less well known cellar doors. We also know many of the operators and can offer some special 'behind the scenes' opportunities.Take a look at our list of local Cellar Doors. They each have a point of difference be it panoramic views or organic growing techniques.
We understand that some people like things other than wine (really?) and so we can mix up a wine tour with alternative destinations. Think Lobethal Bierhaus, Applewood Gin, Fabrik Arts & Heritage, Paracombe Perry, Woodside Cheese Wright or maybe Chesterfield Whisky at Woodside.
All pickups are from the Adelaide Hills, either from your accommodation or an agreed pickup point.
We are in the process of setting up an online booking method for tours. In the meantime, if you would like to book or would like further details, please send us an enquiry specifying when you would like to take a tour (dates) or ring Sam on 0457 755 394.
