Just returned from a tour with Kent. Twelve of us went with him, most had never been on a tour before and he made the experience unforgettable for them. There first experience has them hooked. The service, knowledge, and atmosphere that Kent provides is amazing. We all loved it. Thanks Kent we will see you next year for sure.

From picking us up Kent knew he had his work cut out as we all liked different types of wine but he managed to provide a tour that satisfied all of us equally. His knowledge of the area and it's geology and wine... More

We organised our tour through email and prompt responses from Kent meant we sorted out a day and time a few months in advance. On the day Kent turned up exactly on time and after a quick discussion on likes and preferences we went off to a winery which met our preferences perfectly. From there the tour got better and...
