This is the perfect South Australian getaway for your clients and the bushfire-affected communities.

There’s no more important time for your clients to take a domestic trip than now. With so many areas affected by the devastating bushfires, it’s vital that we keep our communities thriving, supporting them in this time of need.

In collaboration with the Empty Esky movement, designer of small group holiday experiences Inspiring Journeys has put together the perfect food and wine lover’s long weekend. Not only will they visit some of the region’s best wineries, but this five-day getaway to South Australia will also help your clients to leave the passports at home and #HolidayHereThisYear.

As well as visiting these amazing locations and small businesses, guests will be able to stock up on all the best produce and goodies, not having to worry about getting it home, as Inspiring Journeys will cover their excess baggage!*

Here is a small taste of some of the wonderful experiences, allowing your clients to eat and drink their way through the renowned countryside of Adelaide, Barossa Valley, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale.

Barristers Block Winery

Barristers Block Winery in the Adelaide Hills was left in ruin after losing 100 per cent of their vines in the December 2019 bushfires. Fortunately, their cellar door was saved.

On day three of the Flavours of South Australia journey, guests can show their direct support by hearing their stories and stocking up on their delectable, award-winning wines.

Melba’s Chocolate Factory

One for the sweet tooths… visit Melba’s Chocolate Factory in Woodside, famous for their incredible Turkish Delight, Traffic Lights and Inch Liquorice.

Enjoy these sugary treats while also showing your support to this small business that was thankfully saved from the fires by the tireless efforts of firefighters – our everyday heroes.

Gemtree in McLaren Vale

Try delicious, organic and biodynamic wines at Gemtree in McLaren Vale, where they plant, graft and harvest according to the phases of the moon, enhancing the quality of the grapes.

FINO at Seppeltsfield

Dine in the award-winning FINO at Seppeltsfield, where travellers can connect to the region through seasonal plates, showcasing local sustainable producers.

Executive chef Sam Smith will showcase his mouth-watering signature local and sustainable produce.

Woodside Cheese Wrights

Is cheese beautiful? It is at Woodside Cheese Wrights! Try their fresh and creamy chevre with a hint of outback South Australian saltbush, or some award-winning soft and sweet Figaro.

Don’t miss Monet, made of the best Chevre, dressed with special herbs and gorgeous edible organic flowers. With limited access, loss of power and smoke damage, all their cheese stock was lost.

Pay a visit, show your support and fill your eskies with stunningly delicious cheeses.
