They were awestruck with the beauty of the Barossa.

ROLLING STONES CONCERT – U2 MIXUP OR THE GROUNDS NOT READY?

ROLLING STONES CONCERT – U2 MIXUP OR THE GROUNDS NOT READY?

DSCF0123 compSat 23rd March.  It was going to be a long wait for these Sydney girls to see their Rolling stones heroes.  But they and a tourism operator have been hurriedly exited from the new Adelaide Oval by a burley security officer.  The three, one a tour leader from a local wine and sightseeing tourism business, had heard that the cancellation of the Rolling Stones concert was actually because of a mix up of dates with U2 by the promoters. Another rumour was that the venue was still unfinished and unable to cope with the 50,000 honky tonk music fans.

After visiting some of the start me up bars prevalent in the festival city, they wanted to see the venue, and whilst looking over the massive structures from the nearby Montefiore Hill, they were intrigued by loud U2 music coming from the western stands. A long walk to the southern entrance would take them past a little red rooster, some massive Morton Bay figs, but not a Joshua tree. Of course there would be no Mick, but a glimpse of Bono would have made their day, so the inquisitive three entered through a small open gate to the grounds on what supposed to be the eve of the largest gig for the Rolling Stones in the southern hemisphere. It soon became apparent to them that they were not supposed to see what was going on inside….nothing! Not even a tradesman painting it black, when there seemed to be so much still to be done. An angry security officer patrolling the vacant stands, rushed to usher them out of the grounds, obviously embarrassed that the gate had been left open.

“Its only rock and roll, but we like it. We have travelled from Sydney to this event, and could get no satisfaction or emotional rescue” the girls said. “But we will be back in October if it is rescheduled for then. We are really looking forward to that, and time is on our side” they added. “And we will be doing another fantastic tour of the Barossa with Be consumed. tours. Enjoying the top South Australian wine regions with a real winemaker is a fantastic experience”

Outstanding South Australian Wine Region Tours

IMG_cropped 0684 comp

Wayne’s week is always a busy one. He runs the family vineyard, markets his wines, does the rep work in the Adelaide restaurant scene, and does some consulting work too, as well as being involved in tourism.  He has now created  ABRM – short for Adelaide Barossa Regional Minibus, along with sub- brands, Be consumed.tours, and Winemaker Tours. Whilst the key target markets are in middle to high end wine tourism, he will be providing a full range of minibus services for groups.

The Be consumed. tours range provides clients with a wonderful tourism experience, delivering on the  magnificent food and wine character/culture of our state, as depicted in the award winning Tourism SA advert – click here to see.. Barossa be consumed. Whilst the ad is focussed on the Barossa Valley, it really is an expose of the character of all wine regions of our state. South Australian wine tours are simply exhilarating!

The wine region tours on offer are like no other, in that they are led by a vigneron and small winemaker, with guests able to choose from a range of itineraries, which can include a visit and lunch in the newly fitted barrel shed or in the natural bush of Roenfeldt Hill vineyard overlooking the Barossa.

Tours of the McLaren Vale, Hills and Clare Valley regions are also part of the business. Charters are welcomed too, whereby clients can run the day, using their  own itinerary.

Winemaker tours final 150dpi webThe Winemaker Tours is a service aimed at VIP groups….wine clubs, trade, restaurants, hotels etc and those who are seeking customised days in the wine regions, and meetings with the winemakers.

See our website for more info www.abrm.net.au

Note our motto… We love to hear you say…. How good was that!
