FORK & GRAPE SAFARI
FORK & GRAPE SAFARI
Explore the magnificent Fleurieu Peninsula unlike any other with Off Piste 4WD Tours.
This is an exclusive and exciting one day adventure only 40-minutes from Adelaide’s CBD. It introduces the visitor to the hidden delights of a spectacular wine and food province set in a pristine pocket of South Australian bushland and coast. We drive off the tourist routes in a luxury, 200-Series 4x4 Toyota Land Cruiser to discover exclusive locations throughout national parks and private property made accessible to tour guide and passionate Fleurieu local, Benjamin Neville. This exhilarating off-road adventure embraces sprawling vineyards with a dramatic backdrop of rolling hills, local flora and fauna, a spectacular beach drive and a glimpse into First Nations' history of Kaurna Yarta.
It includes a relaxed, mid-morning refreshment stop at an exclusive location only Off Piste Tours can access immersed in a timeless Australian backdrop full of beautiful birdlife, kangaroos, koalas and occasionally the super cute, Ehkidna. Enjoy delicious handmade cheese, premium wines and locally sourced produce to the sounds of Yidaki (didgeridoo). Meet respected winemaker in the heart of McLaren Vale and taste locally produced Shiraz and Grenache along with crisp, dry white wines.
The 'jewel in the crown' occasion that really tugs the heart strings is the day's private lunch experience at Ben's respected and historic family homestead and vineyard. A family of Vignerons dine amongst the family's 30-year-old vines and enjoy the latest vintage of single block Shiraz with a delightful lunch prepared by award-winning chef, and Ben's fiancé, Imogen (Mo) Czulowski.
Throughout the tour Ben shares his knowledge of and passion for the region, stopping at intervals to allow you to soak in breathtaking views of rocky headlands, backcountry 4x4 tracks and timeless vistas over the vast Great Southern Ocean and Kangaroo Island.
