About This Trip

McLaren Vale is home to the blockbuster reds. Don’t get us wrong, there are plenty of great whites on show too, but McLaren Vale is where to come if you want to sip on the inkiest reds, laden with texture and layers of flavour. 


We don’t want you to just visit McLaren Vale, we want you to be immersed in it, the incredible way of life, the passion that every winemaker puts into their craft. Whether amateur or expert, you will be taken through several ranges of wines from renowned winemakers such as the iconic D’Arenberg and the elegant Chalk Hill. 


Your accommodation is situated right on the award-winning cellar door of Serafino Wines. Staying in their secluded four-star rooms, surrounded by 200-year-old gum trees set in stunning gardens. This also means you won’t have far to stagger back after indulging in their premium wine tasting, discovering new flavours and new favourites to take back home.

We wanted to create something that was more than just a wine tour for this trip. McLaren Vale is so beautiful and the way of life, fueled by the passion for wine and food, is so vivacious that we wanted to immerse you right in this. We want you to feel like you have been away for a week even though you are only on a short break. 


We looked for the best accommodation we could find that offered the balance of incredible wine, award-winning food, but a real retreat, a spot so peaceful and relaxing that you feel a million miles from anywhere. We wanted to make sure your hosts were filled with that passion and none are more so than the team from Serafino. 


We also wanted you to experience McLaren vale with an expert guide, someone who would take you to some of the big blockbuster wineries, but also have enough local knowledge to suggest a few unique cellar doors that you might have otherwise missed.


McLaren Vale is situated about 40 minutes outside of Adelaide. Once you fly in here, you will be collected and driven out to your exclusive accommodation where you will spend the next three nights. Right in the heart of McLaren Vale, you will have time to relax and visit local wineries, when your guide is not whisking you off to phenomenal cellar doors. At the end of the trip we will transport you back to Adelaide Airport to meet your outgoing flight.


The rooms at Serafino are simply outstanding. Surrounded by tranquil gardens and filled with local wildlife, the team here have gone above and beyond to create a peaceful escape, right at their cellar door. With a pool and a two Chef Hat awarded restaurant, it is not difficult to relax into the Serafina way of life. 


  • Deal occupancy - two people
