I am remiss in letting nearly two months go by befiore submitting my review.. My experience in January 2013 was in every way positive. From the helpful approach of the owner in arranging the booking to the flexibility of payment arrangements and culminating in a superb experience, I am impressed by the professionalism and flxibility of this company's offerings. The range of wineries visited, flexibility of choice and superb lunch come together to make this a very affordable and thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Although most wineries visited offered a variety of wines from acceptable to excellent, only one (with a largely undeserved notariety and prices that reflected a misguided sense of its own importance) failed to impress. I say this, not to denigrate the wonderful tour in any way but to emphasise the reality that not all can be perfect and the wisdom of the guide/driver was reinforced by his knowledge of the offerings of the lesser known small producers rather than reliance on the "name" producers.
I didn't let on to the cellar door attendant at this winery who was snobbish and treated us like low-life idiots that I was a winemaker and probably had a little more of an understanding of the product than she had .....YES you guessed it Yarra Yering! I won't be includiing that one again.
Notwithstanding that, I don't knoew of any tour operators in the region in which I work who offer such outstanding value and lunch at prices commensurate with Wild Wombat.
I say to the owners - Well Done! and keep up the good work. Your product represents a true service offering and outstanding value.
