Tour the Willunga Farmers Market, sample products created by passionate locals and then enjoy a three-course meal at Vigna Bottin Wines.
Transport is taken care of; sit back, relax and soak it in. Jump on your Chook's Little Winery Tours bus from the Adelaide CBD at 9am and set off for the adventure.
First you'll have coffee at the farmers market and be guided around its stalls: more than 80 farmers and artisan food producers attend each week and tasting options are plentiful.
Next it's off to uncover gems in Willunga's historic High Street. Enjoy a private beer tasting with the Shifty Lizard Taphouse's head brewer before meandering to Four Winds Chocolate, where founder Wendy Ashwin will share her creations.
From there you'll travel to Vigna Bottin Wines for a structured tasting with owners Maria and Paul Bottin. Learn about the Italian varieties they've grown since 1970, then tuck into a three-course meal including fresh produce from the Willunga Farmers Market.
Wines will be available to purchase by the bottle or glass. Your menu will include antipasto with cured meats, house-made pickles and preserves, olives, Andy Clappis bread, arancini and meatballs. Share seasonal mains - including a vegetarian option - and salad, then relax ahead of return bus journey at 3:15pm.
