We really enjoyed the tour by Coco. She was lovely, funny and very informative. My friend had been on other wine tours in the area and she said this one was the best! We thought the tour was very good value for money.

We stopped here on an improptu winery tour between towns. The food was delicious and the patio was such a nice area to relax and have some fresh air before continuing our drive.

The Gibbston Valley winery has a restaurant but we only went there to see the wine cellar that they blasted out of a hillside. We went down a long corridor lined with wine barrels and got to taste some of their wines.
