Took a day-tour into the Barossa Valley via Prime Mini Tours. It was A$48 each circa 2001.

4 Winery visits were included in our itinerary. Unfortunately, none of us are wine lovers so we just went along for fun, unlike folks who were there really to sample the wines and see what they might want to buy. We opted for this cheaper tour since we aren't connoisseurs. Good wine would have been wasted on us.

The 4 wineries then (circa 2001) were:

Chateau Dorrien: Had my first pictures taken with grapes here.

Orlando Wines: Home to "Jacob's Creek".

Miranda Wines: They have this pink Shiraz that was made from red grapes that had the skin peeled off. Very novel.

Chateau Yaldara: Amazingly preened and landscaped grounds. The most pompous of them all. It really looked obstentatious - great for photography!

Address: Barossa Valley Highway
