Having been on winery tours in Hunter Valley and Stellenbosch before we had high expectations of what the tour would offer, and it didn't disappoint!
I arranged the trip with Paul easily via email whilst still in the UK and our pickup point was a 2 minute walk from our hotel.
My husband and I were a little fragile from meeting friends the night before so the day got off to a perfect start at domaine Chandon with a great hair of the dog full glass of bubbles. We did the tasting as well (a bargain at $5 which you get off any bottle you subsequently buy).
We then went to oakridge where we had a delicious lunch, more tastings followed by two more wineries, the last of which our group sat on the verandah with ciders chatting away until it was time to go.
The day is really well paced, you never felt rushed at any of the wineries and its clear Paul has a great relationship with each of the wineries. Paul's knowledge of the wines is fantastic, as is his manner - he doesn't force his wine wisdom on you but is there whenever you have a question.
We were in a great group of 6 and headed home very merry! My only tip would be whilst the foods great at oakridge the portions are quite small to soak up all the alcohol-our group ended up buying emergency crispbreads along the way!!
