This tour is all about showcasing the best that McLaren Vale has to offer. Upon arriving in the gorgeous beach-side suburb of Moana, you will be greeted by the sound and scent of the ocean. You will then do a crash course (bad choice of words I know) in how to ride an electric bike. We will then take a scenic and leisurely ride to McLaren Vale where you will visit the world famous Cube and Swell Brewery. • 8:40 am: Meet at 41 Third Ave Moana for group debrief. If you’d prefer not to make your own way to Moana (very easy by train*), I can organise transportation if given 48-hours notice.** • 9:00 am: Ride to McLaren Vale on E-bikes. • 10:00 am: Coffee stop in McLaren Vale. • 11:00 am: Wine tasting at d’Arenberg Winery – The Cube ($10 entry). E-bikes stored on trailer so no one loses their drivers licence! Tour proceeds on mini bus. • 12:30 pm: Beer tasting and lunch at Swell Brewery. • 1:45 pm: Wine tasting. • 4:00 pm: Tour ends. • 4:15 pm: Driven back to central location. Mixed groups dropped off at McDonalds’ Carpark at 20 West Terrace, Adelaide. Large single groups can negotiate drop off if within an hours’ drive from Moana. *If catching train from Adelaide: Catch Seaford train from Adelaide Train Station to Seaford Train Station – last stop. House is 10 minutes’ walk from station. At time of writing, the train left Adelaide Station at 7:30am and arrived at Seaford at 8:22.
I am the founder of Gone AWOL and I have lived in Moana since 1976. I have travelled to or lived in over 70 countries and love meeting fellow travellers. I am fortunate to have been brought up in wine country and count the best wine makers and brewers in McLaren Vale as my friends. I have a passion for wine and the outdoors and I aim to share this passion with my guests. If you love my tour half as much as I do, you're going to have an awesome day!
E-bikes are the latest on the market and simple and comfortable to ride. Helmets will also be supplied.
I will take photos along the way and share with you at the end of the tour (no charge).
We will take a scenic e-bike from the stunning coast to gorgeous McLaren Vale; it's a leisurely ride of about 30-40 minutes (actually it's very leisurely as the e-bike does all the work for you). We will visit a gorgeous little bakery and will then ride through the back streets and vines to d'Arenberg (The cube). E-bikes will be loaded onto the trailer and the rest of the day is spent visiting what I consider to be the best wineries in the Vale.
