Paisley Unmasked - A Vineyard Experience
Allow 90 minutes I $150pp (min 2, max 8 people)
Join us to unmask the secrets behind making great wine, with a tour of our Shiraz, Fiano and Mataro vineyard in the Eden Valley. Situated at 450m above sea level with stunning views, you will get to walk through our vines and learn about our vineyard practices and why the making of great wine is only possible from great grapes.
Feed our chooks, sit at our private lookout in the Sunset Block and taste the Shiraz from the vineyard you tour, feed our sheep and return for a tasting. Taste direct from barrel and compare that to the wine in bottle. Sit at our kitchen table or on the back patio and taste through the full suite of Paisley Wines creations with a regional platter to enjoy.
Paisley Footprints - Family Farm and Vineyard Visit
Allow 90 minutes I $150 per family (up to 2 adults and 3 children) child minimum age 3yrs
Join us and stomp your feet through our vineyards, feed our menagerie and experience life on our hobby farm. Help us feed the chooks and collect the eggs. Tour through the Town Shiraz block, where kids go on a scavenger hunt in the vineyard, before the adults can enjoy the breath-taking views from our private lookout while tasting the Shiraz made from the vineyard (the littlies can enjoy a fruit box).
Then it’s time to get hands on feeding the sheep, including our adorable miniature Baby Doll sheep and alpaca, before heading back for the adults to do a wine tasting. We’ll keep the kids entertained with colouring in and other fun activities, while you enjoy the range of Paisley Wines creations.
Important biosecurity message for experience guests
We take biosecurity very seriously here at Paisley, after all, our vineyard is our livelihood and we can't afford to introduce pests and diseases. To ensure that we can offer our Vineyard Experiences safely, we will supply boots to wear in the vineyard and have a chlorine bath to step into to make sure we take every precaution.
What we love about our Barossa life
One of the things we love the most about the Barossa, is that we get a relaxing country lifestyle but have first class restaurants to dine out when we feel the need for amazing food.
Before you even get to the Barossa, visit the Barossa website to get all your holiday ideas together and find some accommodation.
If you want to stay nearby, please check out our nearest neighbour's gorgeous B&B called Pinecone Ridge. Anne and Josh's place is located next to the Town Block Vineyard and you get a beautiful outlook from each side of the property.
Our favourite restaurants here serve amazing food and there are a couple that keep hitting that high! Just down the road from us is the most wonderful wine bar called Otherness - great food and wine to enjoy here! We also love FermentAsian for fabulous Vietnamese influenced dishes and both excellent service and an outstanding wine list. Another local fav is Vintners Bar & Grill. We definitely recommend the hot panko crusted olives - yum!
Check out the Barossa Cheese Co in the main street of Angaston to stock up before you head off for a picnic. If you get to the Co-op Foodland supermarket in Nuriootpa on the right day, you can pick up some of Eleni's amazing sourdough - the best at a picnic!
All visitors should google map the directions to the Menglers Hill Lookout for a breath taking view of the Barossa Valley - it's also a great place to let any little people have a run around the sculpture park up there.
We love having people come up to stay, one of the best parts is that it gets us out the door and checking out some of the amazing cellar doors around the valley. For a non wine experience, head to Seppeltsfield Road Distillery and taste some gin - Derek's favourite is the All Sorts liquorice gin.
