As you enter and travel through the Barossa Valley, savor the charm of the local townships. Beyond are the lush, well-tended vineyards that spread across undulating hills. A sense of history pervades the area as its culture and atmosphere are derived from the German settlement of the mid-19th century. Three of the region’s most respected wineries will be featured to give you the chance to sample and perhaps purchase quality Australian wines.

In addition to enjoying wine tasting at McGuigan and Richmond Grove (or similar), you will delight in the special treat of visiting Jacob’s Creek, where you will join an exclusive premium wine tasting and receive a souvenir bottle of Australian wine.

A three-course lunch, complemented with Australian wines, will be served at one of the specially selected wineries. Before returning to your Crystal ship, you will pause at Mengler’s Hill lookout to appreciate spectacular views across the valley.

Guests must be a minimum of 18 years old in order to participate. It is recommended that guests wear flat, comfortable shoes. The wineries and the order of sights visited may vary.
