We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and wine tasting at City Winery in Brisbane. We arrived an hour early (as our early activities had ended early in the area) and they happily accommodated us by sitting us early as they were not overly busy. Our server, Sofie, was fantastic she was very pleasant, engaging and informative. She explained each wine we tasted and customized the wine selection to our tastes being very flexible. The meal was amazing and plentiful. We felt this was an excellent experience and a great value.

Robyn was amazing as our driver and guide and we had a fantastic day filled with lots of fun and laughter! Thanks Robyn!

PJ was an excellent driver/guide and the wineries and distillery were enjoyable. We also had a really fun group.
