This was a well worthwhile wine tour. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the tour so Mike our driver was very open to what wineries we wanted to go to. He was well informed of the wineries In the area and well informed of wine in general. Well worth the trip.

Had a really great day, was easy going, Mike was very knowledgeable, he opened our eyes to the wine industry and although it rained all day we really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely recommend to others, drank some beautiful wines. Thanks Mike

We had a great day touring the wineries with Mike. He knew exactly where to take us, and entertained us with some good stories, as well as lots of information about the wines. Highly recommended!

What a wonderfully informative day we had with Mike, he has a wealth of knowledge and shared passionately about the region’s wine industry.

Great experience, Sue was a pleasure and we learnt so much! Thank you Sue
