NEW Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure

8 October 2021 - 4 days

from $1,990* pp twin | $2,390* solo

Welcome to our Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure 2021. Depart Sydney aboard the 1961 built heritage rail motor 621/721. With windows that open you’ll enjoy a better connection with the glorious NSW countryside as you head off on 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 the Riverina is renowned for.

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

There’s a good reason this is our fifth year of visiting Griffith – there simply isn’t another tour like this one!
