Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure
9 October 2020 - 4 days
from $1,990* pp twin | $2,190* solo
Welcome to our Taste Riverina Food & Wine Adventure – 2020. You will depart Sydney aboard a gleaming 1960s rail motor and enjoy a gourmet breakfast whilst you wind your way through the Southern Highlands. You are 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 brought to the area.
You’ll visit household names including Calabria and De Bortoli and meet the people who make the wines. Experience the sheer delight of lunch at Piccolo Farm where four generations of Piccolo’s will welcome you (their son Luke just happens to be one of Australia’s finest chefs!)
Best of all – everything you will experience is bespoke, unique and exclusive. You won’t be part of a crowd or part of just another run-of-the-mill coach tour. Nothing on this tour is available elsewhere.
Exceptional, fun, and delicious – join us.
