Terroir of the Adelaide Hills wine region study tour

Saturday 3 December 2015

Tour Leader: Tom Mayer

We will travel to four wineries in the Adelaide Hills Region to study aspects of the terroir of the various vineyards. We will be talking to the winemakers at each location to discuss the important contributors to terroir: geology, regolith, soil, altitude and microclimate, sun aspect, vine selection, trellising and pruning practices, picking parameters (baumé, acidity), picking technique and oenological practices.

Visiting: Paracombe Premium Wines, Mt Lofty Ranges Vineyard, Murdoch Hill and Tapanappa Wines

The purpose of the tour is:

  • To critically examine and discuss the terroir of several Adelaide Hills Vineyards
  • To taste and appreciate the fine wines produced at each location
  • To appreciate some of the variations of terroir within a single wine region
  • If desired, to purchase some fine wines

The tour includes a two course gourmet lunch at Mt Lofty Ranges Vineyard. Matt Fitton, the Chef at Mt Lofty Ranges Vineyard, won the award for the Best Chef of 2016 in this year’s Restaurant & Catering Awards for Excellence.
