NEW Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure

30 October 2020 - 4 days

from $1,990* pp twin | $2,190* solo

Welcome to our second 2020 Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure. You will depart Sydney aboard a gleaming 1960s rail motor and enjoy a gourmet breakfast whilst winding your way through the Southern Highlands on your way to one of the most remarkable weekends you’ll ever have.

Amongst the wide plains surrounding Griffith, you’ll visit a procession of family farms, orange groves, wineries and gourmet restaurants, all embodying the passion for authentic and superlative locally produced food and wine that waves of Italian migrants have brought to the area.

Visit household names, including De Bortoli Wines, and meet the people who make the wines and produce. Experience the sheer delight of lunch at Piccolo Farm where four generations of the Piccolo family will welcome you (Luke just happens to be one of Australia’s finest chefs!)

Best of all – everything you will experience is bespoke, unique and exclusive. Don’t be part of the crowd or just another run-of-the-mill coach tour. Exceptional, fun, and delicious – join us!
