After, we had a delicious lunch and wine tasting at Yering Station. At the second vineyard, De Bortoli, we enjoyed a wine and cheese tasting. Our guide Stephen was great and provided... More

Awesome wine tour, well organised and executed. Paul our guide was top notch and had so much knowledge of the area and the wines - we really felt like VIP's.

A very restful and educational day with the added benefit of sampling some good wine, some great cheese and having a wonderful lunch with a great view. Our guide "Steve" was very knowledgable and pleasantly engaging. I thought I knew quite a bit about wine, but I learned a lot more on this trip. Highly recommend
