Come Out & Play

Our wine tours are set up with the intention to provide you with something memorable, fun and you should be talking about it in a good way for days later.

Our Philosophy

Winery tours are supposed to be fun that is the bottom line for everyone or put it this way I have never meet someone that said let’s book a tour to have a boring unmemorable day.

Top tips for a great winery tour

1

Try and stay on a schedule to get the most out of your day, this is easier with smaller groups. However, larger groups can easily fill an hour at each winery.

2

Know what the weather conditions will be like and prepare accordingly

3

You don’t have to try every wine – pick out your favourites and go from there. Some wineries have over ten different wines to try, visiting six wineries means a lot of wine to try.

4

Drink plenty of water the day before and throughout the day – on some wine tours you will have the opportunity to taste 45 different wines, and that can sneak up on you.

5

Many of the wines you taste on a winery tour are nothing short of delicious, those that aren’t so delicious feel free to spit out, there is no shame in doing so.

6

Be sure to let us know if you have any special requirements well and truly in advance

7

Try several wines at different wineries before you buy and speak to me about this also as I have tried many of the wines throughout the region and I will do my best to steer you in the right direction where you get the best wine for you hard earned dollars.

Have fun!

Moorabool Valley

Surf Coast

The wineries throughout the surf coast are the most spread out, but if you are keen to explore the wineries that endure the harshest conditions then this is the spot for you! Six wineries can be a stretch
