    McLaren Vale is leading the way when it comes to sustainability in wine, and this experience aims to help you discover it all. You'll visit small family-run wineries taking the lead on sustainable wine practices, and learn how sustainable wines are not only better for the planet but also better for your health. You'll discover how biodynamic farming helps create a more sustainable wine region and taste biodynamically certified estate-grown wines. At South Australia's first Carbon Neutral winery you'll learn how small changes to packaging, farming, and logistics can add up to make a huge impact. Lunch at The Salopian features seasonal and local produce, much of which is sourced from their own organic kitchen garden. With a big focus on sustainable produce and ecologically friendly business practices, there's definitely no loss here at one of Australia's most highly regarded restaurants. Throughout the day, you'll taste a wide variety of wines from smaller producers in idyllic settings. The aim is to help you understand the jargon on the back of the wine label, so you can make more informed decisions about your wine purchases. A tour like no other, this truly is a unique wine tour experience with a difference.
