Ultimate Winery Experiences Australia

Helicopter Transfers, Wine Blending & d'Arry's Degustation

Fly, blend and dine in style

9:30 am

The experience begins at the Adelaide Airport, meeting your private helicopter pilot who will fly you to d’Arenberg, taking in the magnificent coastal views along the way.

10:30 am

Make your way to the highest viewpoint of McLaren Vale on Level 4 of the d’Arenberg Cube. The Blending Bench is a hands-on, interactive experience where you play winemaker. A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavours and textures, is melded in search of balance, fullness and finesse. We did the physical work – picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing, and you get to create a truly unique wine. You then bottle, name and label a 750mL sample to take home and show off to your friends.

12:00 pm

Following your blending session, indulge your tastebuds at an 8-course degustation in d’Arry’s Verandah Restaurant, overlooking the rolling hills of McLaren Vale. This is our very favourite way of eating and our homage, if you like, to the old adage “variety is the spice of life”. The resultant combination of flavours and textures created between the food & wine pairings makes for an experience that will linger.

At your leisure, continue to further explore the d’Arenberg Cube, making your way through the various levels including Alternate Realities Museum on the ground floor, where a self-guided exploration will take you through a space filled with wall-to-wall art installations designed to excite and awaken your senses. Original bronze sculptures and graphic artworks from the surrealist master, and titan of modern art Salvador Dali. Historically displayed in the great cities of the world. This multi-million-dollar exhibition is on loan from the Dali Universe in Switzerland.


Return to the d’Arenberg Heli pad, where your private helicopter pilot is waiting to whisk you back to the Adelaide Airport to conclude a day full of views, art, wine, and decadent food.
