This tour was recommended in the RoughGuide and what a great pick!
Vince picked my wife and I up from our campsite and cheefully chauffeured us (and a mother and daughter) around a selection of vineyards.
Before setting off Vince asked us what wines we liked (colour, grape, region, etc...) to help determine where to visit. As well as sharing his vast knowledge of wine and the different expertises of the local vineyards he also engaged in friendly banter helping to create a great atmosphere.
Subsequently we have been to the other wine producing areas in NZ and visited the vineyards directly and although this is still a pleasant experience (when is drinking wine not!) without the relationship Vince had with the people working at the Hawkes bay vineyards it was not quite as memorable an experience.
Vince cheers for giving us a great afternoon wine tasting!
