Enjoy being collected from Adelaide city and sit back, relax and let us drive you aboard the South Coast Wine Train tour.
The new South Coast Wine Train tour operated by Beyond the Vine Wine Tours and Rail Tours Australia 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 Wine Region.
People are starting to talk more about this hidden gem of the Australian wine regions which is surprisingly so close to Adelaide.
Bremerton, Bleasdale, Lake Breeze, Angas Plains, 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 lunch at the Finniss General Store cafe.
Next arrive at the Port of Goolwa, home to the Steam Exchange Brewery, Fleurieu Distillery, Shaw Family Wines and 90 Mile Wines. More tastings can be enjoyed at your own leisure or you can grab a bargain at the local markets.
Arrive at Victor Harbor just in time to catch the South Coast Wine Train (aka "the Southern Encounter") for your return rail journey where you can unwind and sit back and watch the world travel past your carriage window as we head along the beaches of the South Coast, through the wheat fields and farmland and back towards Strathalbyn and Mount Barker.
On return to Mount Barker, be returned to Adelaide city with a new experience, a bottle or two of great Langhorne Creek wine and memories you can share for a life time.
