Grape Escape

Mt Barker Grape Escape



Friday 6 & 13 May 2022
9.30am to 4.00pm


Albany Visitor Centre

221 York St, Albany

Meander through backroads to taste outstanding wines from wineries of the Mt Barker region. This region has a characteristically cool climate with slow ripening times which allows for the development of rich flavours and quality grape juice.

Wine tasting begins at Gilbert Wines, home to the ‘lads’ and where a morning coffee might be preferred. At Plantagenet wines you are guided through the back rooms on a private tour of the cellar workings, before you are taken to the tasting bench. Choose your wine and make your purchase to accompany a scrumptious shared platter lunch of local produce. Onwards the tour will take you to Galafrey Wines and family owned winery. From there to West Cape Howe where you can sample wine, olive oil or their own brand of coffee! Our Busy Blue Bus guide will take care of the skipper duties, whilst you relax and enjoy the scenery and the sensational flavours of the region. ‘Magical and memorable’.


Adult - $200

Ticket includes pick up/drop off from Albany Visitor Centre, tastings at four wineries, tea/coffee and shared platter lunch.
