Wine tasting with Greg was a very wonderful experience. He has a lot of wine knowledge and a great sense of humor. We met wine makers and had the opportunity to taste wine, olive oils, cheese, mustards and different sauces. Definitely worth the money, I would do it again for sure! Thanks Greg.

Had a great time on the tour. Lots of fun! You go to 4-5 wineries based on time and Greg mixes them up depending on what your group likes. He also taught us about wine making in the area and in general which was interesting. Great value to get driven around to many of Hawkes bay's wineries so you can... More

What better way to spend a hot afternoon. Collected from our accommodation and taken around four wineries. To do this we had a fantastic tour of the local area with a very interesting commentary from Greg. Great being able to sample many different wines in very relaxed company. As a Rose fan it was fantastic sitting outside at the stables... More

It was a lovely afternoon visiting 4 wineries. We enjoyed the wine tasting at each vineyard. Learnt something different about the wines on offer. But the best was sitting outside at one of the wineries, with a glass of chilled Rose, sampling a delicious cheese, crackers & grapes platter. We were fortunate enough to have a good sociable group onboard... More

We highly recommend Greg's tour! We started at a beautiful winery in the hills where we had a delicious lunch after tasting the wines there. Then we went to 4 other premium wineries. Greg asked everyone what kind of wine they liked and made sure that we all got to try those. We tasted far more wine that we would... More

Four local wineries in an afternoon is a fun way to chill out on a gorgeous summer’s day. Denise was our driver and she knew her stuff, giving us both a potted history of the area and a bit of background on the wine-making process. There were six of us plus Denise and we were picked-up and dropped-off outside our... More

Greg picked us up on time is very personable and friendly. One group in the tour were late and he was kind enough to drop us at the first winery whilst he went back and waited for the others. The first winery had has try no less than ten wines and you can imagine were were all in a feel... More

Loved the atmosphere of the tour - started out quite quiet until after the first winery then everyone loosened up and started talking. Greg was a great guide, informative with just the right amount of fun thrown in. We went to 4 great wineries where we were met by 4 fantastic hosts.
