Visited 3 wineries and one brewery on this full day excursion. Coach was modern and clean with pleasant driver. Lunch was ok, those who had salmon on pasta suggested the salmon just swam through it. Would skip the $15 tasting of beers, no time to enjoy. The mcguigans winery at the end of the day was great. Trip to village... More

Our driver Callum was very good and ensured we had a great day. We visited quite a few vineyards and some... More

Seemed very rushed My favorite winery was Blueberry Hill winery -very small boutique winery with very good boutique wine with interesting blends. Very old historic vines. I had the lunch option. It was marginal. No desert offered. Very I personnel. Food dropped in... More

Our guide, Tristan, was informative and friendly. The group was a nice size, approx 15 people. We set out pretty early, around 7 am but had a pit stop mid morning for some breakfast. We went to 5 different wineries. It was interesting to see the different set-ups; modern, traditional, big and small wineries. At each place, a guide or... More

My sister recommended this tour to me and it was excellent! We went to five different wineries and our tour guide, Tristan, was so knowledgable and enthusiastic. All the wineries were different, so we got a real taste of the area. The McGuigan winery was my favorite. I also enjoyed the wine and cheese shops we visited and the mushroom... More
