Loved the tour and the wine was pretty amazing, too. Although it was a bit rainy and cold throughout the trip I still really enjoyed it. And Nigel, the tour guide, was pretty funny. Also enjoyed seeing Kangaroos in the wild at one of the wineries.
Our driver was very knowledgeable and witty. Thoroughly enjoyable trip . Especially liked the IronGate Winery !
