Inspiring Journeys has partnered with Ultimate Winery Experiences to launch the brand new 5-day Flavours of South Australia to showcase the best of the Barossa, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale wine regions.

Since its initial launch earlier this year, the itinerary has now been updated to offer guests the opportunity to support bushfire recovery in some of Australia’s most beloved townships, by visiting local producers renowned for their unique flavours.

Supporting the Barossa

Inspiring Journeys

In collaboration with the #EmptyEsky and ‘buy from the bush’ movement, guests can fill their esky or reusable bag at the decadent Melbas Chocolate factory, or perhaps make time to visit nearby Woodside Cheese Wrights and Chesterfield Whisky Firm.

Head to Barristers Block Winery to sample delicious wines or pick up a takeaway tasty charcuterie board that includes cured meats or salmon pate for a picnic that evening. The family-run winery lost 100% of its vineyards in the recent bushfires. Fortunately, their cellar was saved, and guests are invited to support their recovery by filling up with treats – with all freight covered by Inspiring Journeys as a show of support.

The last Bushfire Recovery stop in the region is the Lobethal Bierhaus, where travellers can take advantage of tastings, or take home their favourites brews.

“This trip had always been crafted to connect travellers with the makers, growers and passionate owners of South Australia’s unique food scene – but now it offers so much more to the community with our ongoing commitment to supporting Bushfire Recovery.”

Matthew Cameron-Smith, Managing Director for Inspiring Journeys
