Kangaroo Island Trail - Food & Wine Day Tour

ISLAND BEEHIVE

Island Beehive is owned by Kangaroo Islander, Peter Davis.  A passion for bees and honey permeates the island beekeeping community with which Peter is intrinsically linked.

 

Peter was born on Kangaroo Island and and grew up around bees kept as a sideline on the family farm. Being one of the first, and now amongst the biggest organic honey producers in Australia, Peter is a leading voice in the honey production industry in Australia and is pro-active in protecting and promoting the Ligurian Bee heritage. Peter is constantly looking for ways to mentor and encourage people in the production of honey and bee products.

 

The Island Beehive Company has eight other producers contracted to supply honey. They are expanding their production to enable supply to other markets.

BAY OF SHOALS

Bay of Shoals Wines is located 5 minutes north of Kingscote and overlooks the Bay of Shoals and Reeves Point, the site of the first settlement in South Australia.

 

We produce a range of award-winning wines including Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Savagnin, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sparkling Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tawny and Vintage Fortified as well as several red blends.

Our cellar door provides a memorable opportunity for visitors to taste our products, absorb the island's culture and hospitality, and enjoy one of the island's must-see experiences.
