We toured with Jonathan. He listened to our wine preferences and made good suggestions based on those preferences. Very informative about the area and different wine growing regions. It was interesting to be able to do a compare and contrast of California and Australian wine styles (we live near Napa and Sonoma in California and visit regularly). We enjoyed the... More

What an enjoyable day! We had several constraints on the day--planes to catch and high end wineries to visit. Jonathan planned the whole day from hotel pick up to airport delivery and hit every mark! The wineries were first class along with a great lunch planned in the middle. I'd highly recommend Barossa Epicurean Tours if you want to maximize... More

Can't recommend this enough. Our daughter and s-i-l did the Penfolds make your own wine and included lunch tour with Jonathan and we did the straight Barossa tour a couple of months later. Visited 7, I think, wineries including the more obvious Penfolds but several smaller ones and the two collective tasting places for Eden Valley and the one in... More

We had 3 nights in Angaston and wanted to make the most of our time, so rather than figuring out which wineries would be best to visit, we left it to the professionals! Jonathan hosted us in his air conditioned, spacious and comfortable van, taking us to 6 wineries across the day. Rather than just 'sticking to the script' he... More

Couldn't recommend this more. Jonathan is great host. Very knowledgable about wines, and the area. Happy to adjust schedule to your preferences and likes.

My sister and I organized epicurean tours and Tom to be our diver for a day in the Barossa. He was prompt professional and went out of his way in terms of service. The car was spotless. Epicurean helped tailor the wineries that we visited so that we could visit ones that didn't use egg/fish(vegan wine yum!) as a filtering... More

I was fortunate to host Sarah and Georgie around the Barossa. With help from members of Barossa Wine and Grapegrowers we were able to cater for Sarah's request for Vegan wine proving the benefits of hospitality providers and producers working as a team. We hope you get the chance to visit the Barossa again one day. Tom More

Tom was our guide and we found him to be humble and in no way unpleasant! We had a few places in mind and were taken to a couple of extras, Tom's suggestions - we had a ball! He seemed to have a great relationship with quite a few of the staff at the places we visited. We wouldn't hesitate... More

I am picky when it comes to wine tours and I have to. Say I just had the best experience I could have hoped for. Great boutique vineyard choices, Tom being a great guide and overall such a magical day. Recommended.

Hi Karri and Tom, We are glad that you enjoyed your tour of the Barossa Valley with Tom. It is heartening when guests review their experience with us as the highlight of their holiday to SA. The lunch at Sorby Adams proves that the Barossa truly is an Epicurean destination. Tom More

Tom has such an incredible depth of knowledge of the Barossa Valley... our tour for a full day was one of the most memorable tours I have taken in any wine region, and I have been to a lot of them!

It is heartening when our guests enjoy their experience with us enough to find the time to write a tour review on tripadvisor. It reminds us why we are in the hospitality business and live in an exceptional wine region. Hopefully our paths may cross again one day. Tom More
