The first of its kind in the Barossa, the Penfolds Make Your Own Blend tour is a fun, interactive experience for anyone who has wanted to be a winemaker for a day. Following a walking tour of the winery and cellars, guests are taken through a structured tasting of a range of Penfolds wine styles and varietals, before donning lab coats and trying their hand at blending their own version of the Penfolds Bin 138 from Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre.
The Penfolds Make Your Own Blend tour is both an educational and enjoyable experience, blending to suit your own personal taste. Plus you can to take your wine with you in a personalised bottle to enjoy back at the Resort to accompany the delicious menu at Harry's Restaurant featuring all local produce including the superb Waechters Dux prepared in a traditional French style.
The Novotel's studio rooms provide a tranquil place to rest and relax, overlooking the spectacular surrounds of the Barossa. Enjoy a glass of wine on your balcony and listen to relaxing tunes from your Ipod through the newly installed docking stations. Or curl up in the evening with a bold Barossa Shiraz and enjoy a night in after a day of pampering at the on-site endota day spa.
This is the Barossa in winter…
