Participate in an informative Wine Tasting as well as an interactive and hands-on blending activity. Understand single varietals and how they can be used to form a component in a wine blend, adding either structure, fruit, finesse or body to create a well-balanced wine. This is a great social or corporate group outing where teams compete to create the best blend. Booking 3 days in advance is required.

Backsberg also offers tour experiences around the farm. Choose from a guided cellar tour, viewing the winemaking cellar and barrel room to learn more about the winemaking process and also see how we hand- riddle using the traditional method. Otherwise opt for a vineyard tour on the back of a farm tractor and learn about the vineyards, terroir and the environmental aspects of the farm. Booking 3 days in advance is required. Tours are available Monday to Saturday and subject to availability of tractors.
