Had a great time, beautiful food, lovely wine and great scenery despite the wet weather. Joseph also gave us some great dining suggestions for dinner very close to our hotel. Thanks... More

At the recommendation of the information center in Federation Square of Melbourne, we decided to take this wine tour. It was a little more expensive than some of the others, however the value is well worth the money. Our tour guide was very personable, pointed out interesting facts and sites along our route to the Yarra Valley and took us... More

Absolutely amazing day spent in the Yarra Valley, our guide Stephen was so knowledgeable and you could tell he really had a passion for wine and local producers. The wineries we visited were exceptional, with very welcoming hosts, from large producers to small family operated vineyards, we experienced it all. Lunch was first class and that view, world class!

Stephen is very passionate about his work and the respect he's held in by cellar door staff is obvious.... More

I had such a wonderful day. Our driver and guide Joseph was very friendly and knowledge about wines. The tour was relaxing and in no rush which I appreciated. Lunch was amazing (i tried the Kangoro) and of course wines were top notch.

We chose to visit the Mornington Peninsula to check out the vineyards. What a treat, some beautiful wines and great company with our host Stephen. As a small group the tour was varied to suit what we wanted. Thumbs up, would definitely recommend to anyone interested in their wines.

Thanks Paulbuck99 for your review and great to hear how much you enjoyed your recent tour to the Mornington Peninsula. Its lack of commercialism holds strong appeal and the access that's often available to the owners can't be underestimated. The small group dynamic also works well and allows for flexibility in the day's itinerary. Thanks for your support. More
