The ‘Wine and Wander’ tour begins at Gemtree’s Tasting Room where you will be greeted with a glass of sparkling wine and unparalleled views across McLaren Vale to the sea. You will be treated to a personalised explanation of Gemtree’s organic and biodynamic philosophies and a private wine tasting experience.
Then it’s off to explore the Gemtree Ecotrail – a gorgeous area lovingly restored from a degraded creek line into a biodiverse 10-hectare conservation area. There are six interlinking dams and more than 50,000 native trees and shrubs have been planted. The restoration has improved the biodiversity of the vineyard and ensured ecological balance is maintained on the property.
A 20-minute gentle stroll takes you to your secluded dining table at the end of the Ecotrail, under majestic gum trees surrounded by native Australian bushland – a haven for native birds, plants and animals.
It’s here that you will indulge in a private dining experience prepared by the award-winning chefs at the nearby Salopian Inn. This is an unforgettable food and wine experience in unsurpassed surroundings.
