We did a 1/2 day wine tour visiting 3 wineries and chocolate and cheese tasting. Our guide Delia was lots of fun, and very knowledgeable on the local area vineyards, the people who run them and the wine making process itself. She was also able to suggest great places to eat once our tour finished. Our tour was designed to suit our requirements, with true boutique wineries chosen each with their own points of difference. We liked that we weren't pushed into making purchases. But when we did they were chauffeured for us into the car while we continued on with being educated. Even the cheese was put in a cooler box. Would definitely recommend this company, catering for small (our group of 4) or larger groups.

My partner and I were staying in the Hunter for our honeymoon and this was the perfect activity during our stay.

We booked a full day private indulgence tour and didn't make it past lunch.
The morning was relaxing with convenient pick up from our villa. Very informative and so much to see!

Lunch was a 4 course degustation at Lindamens. Every meal was tasty with a variety of wines to match.
Unfortunately the food coma overtook us and we couldn't continue on to the other vineyards but that was the benefit of having a private tour.

Couldn't have asked for better treatment or more friendly faces.

We were delivered right up to our villa door!

Highly recommended and we will be back :)

Chose this tour as it had received good reviews. We were not disappointed. Reserving the tour was easy and our questions were answered promptly by email. We arrived somewhat late in the morning from Sydney but were flexibly picked-up on time by Brian from our accommodation. We missed to first vineyard tasting but enjoyed the rest of the day according to the program. Some vineyard tasting were fairly minimalistic and generally the atmosphere of the tasting depended on the person presenting the wines. The last vineyard, Ernest Hill Wines, was especially great as the guide was enthusiastic and had a great personality. Lunch was good even though we had to pay for the lunch drinks. The tour also includes visits to an olive and cheese / chocolate vendor. Generally an enjoyable day and good wines with our excellent and flexible tour guide.

My husband & I did a half day tour with Brian. He picked us up from our accommodation (Buffs at Pokolbin-AMAZING place to stay!) & took us round a number of fantastic wineries. All of which were unique in their own way & gave us a real insight into the diverse cellar doors in the region.

We had a private wine tasting session at Ivanhoes with Leslie which was excellent, a private tour & food pairing session at Irongate & a private wine tasting session & tour at Saddlers Creek .

Brian went out of his way to make our half day personal & unique. He was extremely knowledgeable & informative but most of all it was great fun. It was far more than either of us had expected & was great value for money. I would recommend theses guys in a heartbeat.

Did full day boutique wine and gourmet wine tour in mid sept. Brian treated us as VIP guests and took us to 6 boutique wineries who spent time explaining the art of wine tasting and food matching. We got to go behind the scenes at a couple. Also fitted in four different gourmet food tasting experiences. A very full day but very enjoyable from the moment we were picked up from our accommodation to our safe return back.
