TERROIR OF THE ADELAIDE HILLS WINE REGION
SATURDAY 6 DECEMBER 2014 – ADELAIDE
Tour leader: Tom Mayer
Bus departs Regal Park Motor Inn, 44 Barton Tce East, North Adelaide

Please be ready to board the bus at 8:15am.
The bus departs at 8:30am and will return to the Regal Park by about 5:30pm.
We will travel to four wineries in the Adelaide Hills Wine Region to study aspects of the terroir of the various vineyards. We will be talking to the winemakers at each location to discuss the important contributors to terroir: geology, regolith, soil, altitude and microclimate, sun aspect, vine selection, trellising and pruning practices, picking parameters (baumé, acidity), picking technique and oenological practices.
The purpose of the tour is:
- To critically examine and discuss the terroir of several Adelaide Hills vineyards
- To appreciate some of the variations of terroir within a single wine region
- To taste and appreciate the fine wines produced at each location
- If desired, to purchase some fine wines.
We would like our members to contribute their geological ideas to these discussions especially since our vi-gneron friends are as keen to learn from us as we are from them.
We will visit Murdoch Hill, Goldings Wines, Paracombe Premium Wines and Ngeringa. A gourmet lunch (including drinks) at the beautiful Paracombe Winery is included.
