Jonathan was the consummate guide for our SA wine introduction. Offering only vague requests (see the country, enjoy Cabs and Rieslings, lunch) we were provided a delightful day in the Barossa at 4 vineyards inclusive of one of most delicious lunches I've had in a while. Jonathan answered all of our questions and was friendly and relaxed. It was evident... More

Jonathan was the perfect tour guide for our day in the Barossa. He matched our tastes in wine with wineries to visit and took us to a couple of hidden gems for what was an outstanding day in the valley.

Jonathan is extremely knowledgeable about the Barossa and Clare Valleys. We booked him for consecutive days and were delighted with his selections. He knew many of the Cellar Door staff and was very helpful in pointing out wines that we might be interested in drinking. His vehicles are comfortable and he is very prompt and accommodating taking us by a... More

We had a great one day tour of the Barossa with the genial Jonathan recently. We are not massive Aussie red wine fans. Faced with this minor challenge to the orthodox, Jonathan readily changed gear. He focused on whites, and on interesting food options and small towns to look round in addition to visiting vineyards. Lunch at Pindarine was lovely.... More

I arranged a tour with Jonathan and Kate in June for my husbands birthday and liaised with Jonathan to organise a tour appropriate for our tastes and our sense of adventure and they excelled. If Jonathan and Kate make a suggestion then my advice is to bite their hand off and take them up on the opportunity, we planned 50%... More

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.
