If you are loking for a different winery experience, this is the one to do. The Cube was fascinating in it's design and history of the creation. The guide was very knowledgable and general vibe was fun and quirky. Fun day all round, but it would have been nice to spend more time at one of the wineries, felt very rushed.

It was well worth it..Lovely coach to travel on. Friendly people. Great food. The cube made it more interesting and fun to add to the trip.

I was a great day thanks Paul the wineries we visited were really nice and lunch was yummo I would highly recommend Bums on Seats bus tours

Not just your average wine tasting so perfect for those looking for something different
