Amazing experience at the wineyard. The setting is perfect for an excellent wine tasting with explanations. I learned so much and enjoyed a delicious lunch afterwards. Plus our guide was good fun and very knowledgeable. I couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended!

Hi Silvia, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your "amazing experience". The Pinot Masterclass followed by the chefs choice lunch is proving to be the perfect combination for a great day out. Thanks too for highly recommending the tour. I'd be delighted to host you and your friends again sometime. Cheers, Steve

Hi Laura, Great to hear that you and your friends through the tour was even better than you were expecting! I wish I could take the credit but with the wonderful wine and food of the Southern Highlands, as well as Berrima being such a delightful town to wander, it's really hard to go wrong. Thanks so much for taking the time to share your thoughts. I hope you can make it down to the Highlands again soon. Cheers, Steve

I went on this tour with a bunch of friend, and what a surprise for us all this day was! I was not aware of the beauty of the little town of Berrima, and the Wine Masterclass in Centenial was quite a highlight on my “i wanna know my wines” experiences! Something that I was not

Hey Oscar, It's wonderful to know you and your friends had such a "great day out"! You were a lot of fun to show around and it was satisfying to see how much you all appreciated the wine and food. The Southern Highlands really has so much to offer on that front and I'm grateful that you took the time to share your experience so enthusiastically. Having grown up in the area I'm a bit biased, so having someone visit the area for the first time and be so excited encourages me to introduce even more people to the Highlands. I hope to see you and your friends (and friends of friends?) on another day out in the Southern Highlands soon. Cheers, Steve

Sophie! Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback on the tour. And thanks for bringing so much fun to the day! It was truly a delight, and thoroughly entertaining, having you along. I had to agree with Jason when he said, "I haven't laughed so much in a long time". Enjoy the rest of your time in Australia. Cheers, Steve

This tour really speaks local and the Southern Highlands are just beautiful. The wineries we visited were outstanding. We knew we were in for a treat from the moment we set foot in the first one. The food was superb, from the cold platter to the 2 course lunch, everything was

Hi Ana, Thanks so much for recommending the tour so highly! The Highlands really does have so much to offer in terms of regional produce. And as an up and coming wine region I'm excited to be able to show visitors around and introduce them to winemakers and chefs that are making it all happen. The credit must really go to them. We look forward to seeing you again when you need to stock up on tea. And maybe some Pinot. :-) Cheers, Steve
