What you'll do

A day out with me is a journey of discovery, learning, and not having to worry about a thing! I'll pick you up from Adelaide city and take you out to the Barossa wine region, along with any others who may be joining us. We'll visit 4 boutique wineries spending about 45-60 mins at each, with a break for lunch after the first two. You'll be treated to a truly generous Barossa banquet at one of the region's most popular restaurants - Harvest Kitchen. With all tasting fees and lunch included, you won't have to worry about a thing!

Using my insider knowledge & contacts you'll get access to off-limits areas or by-appointment wineries where possible, taste the best wines on offer, and get the most out of your experience.

More than just a glorified chauffeur, over the course of the day I'll help to demystify a lot of the jargon and superstition around wine and sort out the facts. You'll try varieties and styles you may never have heard of or thought were something different, and have so much more confidence when faced with the daunting task of choosing a bottle from the liquor store or, even worse, the dreaded wine list.

I'll also share loads of stories from the foundations of Adelaide and the Barossa, insider local knowledge, the best restaurants & activities, and a whole host of unusual insights.

You can trust me to create for you the wine experience you've always wanted
Other things to note
Wear comfortable flat-soled shoes in case we head off into the vineyards or into the winery. Having breakfast is also a must for a day of wine tasting, and it's a good idea to start the day well hydrated.

You may be joined by others on tour but I keep the tour group size capped at a maximum of 6.

I'm a traveler at heart, always trying to uncover and share those cool places that no-ones heard about yet. In 2018, for instance, I took my Mum to Azerbaijan and Georgia, just to go exploring (and wine-ing). As you can imagine, there's not a stone I've left unturned in my home state of South Australia, and I bring this intrepid nature into helping my guests uncover their own unique side to our gorgeous state.

From an early age I was introduced to great wine by my Barossa winemaker friends, and I've been discovering and learning everything I can about it since. Now a qualified member of Sommelier's Australia, I've hosted everything from wine-talks for hundreds at Tourism Australia events, to intimate tours for international connoisseurs, collectors, and wine novices alike.

Where you'll be

I have a top of the line Mercedes-Benz people mover for 8 that will be your chariot for the day, but I cap guests to 6 just to keep the experience intimate and manageable. I like to focus on boutique family-owned businesses that are the lifeblood of the region, but we can also visit the big names if it's something you really want to do too. Maggie Beers Farm Shop is also a frequently requested stop on tour we love sharing with guests.

This was an exceptional experience. Matthew is a local expert and all round great guy. The wineries he planned were a superb choice. On this tour we discovered far more than we would have on our own. Compared to another tour we went on the following day with a different tour group...this experience was far superior. We will definitely be recommending Matthew to all our friends travelling to Adelaide.
