More About the Bowral Wineries Tour…

Before we take off on our Bowral Wineries adventure, you will get the chance to have a browse around the largest indoor market in the Southern Highlands – Dirty Janes.  Dirty Janes in Bowral offers a unique shopping experience in the heart of the Southern Highlands for all things vintage, design and decorating!

Once you’re all shopped out, we will get going! and head straight to one of the most famous wineries in Bowral – Centennial Vineyards for the first of our Bowral Wineries.  Your wine tasting experience Centennial Vineyards will be a mix of reds, whites, sparkling and late harvest wines will be served (as it should be!) with a local cheese and produce platter.

Next stop, Bendooley Estate, by far one of the most talked about venues in all of Bowral and the Southern Highlands – appreciate grandeur at its best with Bendooley Estate’s stunning buildings,  picturesque Southern Highlands country landscape and an iconic bookstore –  it truly is a spectacular destination in Bowral and we are excited to take you there on this tour.

Lunchtime at McVitty Grove!  This local Mittagong Restaurant is slightly off the beaten track (which is why you’re on a tour with us, Kenny Escapes – we take you to all the cool places!) and boasts a very impressive and unique location in Mittagong.  With sweeping views over the Southern Highlands country-side, you will enjoy a one-course lunch served with a glass of wine from a local winery – the views here at McVity Grove are breathtaking – get your camera ready!

The wine tour finishes with a truly rural and country experience – a wine tasting (in the paddock!) at Tractorless Vineyard*.  Here you will find out about Tractorless Vineyards natural and sustainable farming practices, hang out in the paddock with their sheep and taste their amazing wines of course!
