This was a fantastic tour! There were 11 of us total in the group, and our guide was both hospitable and very knowledgeable. He picked us up at our various hotels at the start of the tour and dropped us all off afterward, making the entire trip effortless.
The highlight of the tour was definitely the first stop in the De Bortoli Winery's private tasting room. In that one stop alone we got to sample 13 excellent wines paired with several fantastic cheeses. But each of the other 4 stops featured either a truly standout wine or some extraordinary food.
We saw a mob of wild kangaroos in the valley on the way to one of our stops, so the hostdriver pulled over to let us get a good look at them while simultaneously giving us background information on the animals. Awesome!
Between the excellence of our guide, the camaraderie of the other guests, and the delicious wines and food, this was a fantastic way to explore and discover Melbourne's scenic wine country while sampling nearly 30 of the area's finest wines. I've been on wine tours before, but this was truly a first class experience.
