About
Sip and savour the best of the Southern Highlands wine region, an easy 90 minute drive from Sydney. The Southern Highlands has developed a reputation as one of the most exciting young wine regions in Australia. Best known for cool-climate varieties, particularly pinot noir, riesling and chardonnay, the area’s winemakers have expanded the range to include lesser-known grapes too. Even now, as the more established wineries enter their third decade, relative newcomers continue to join the party. And what better way to start a party than with a glass of Southern Highlands bubbles? During the day sample wines from three of the most highly-rated wineries in the Southern Highlands and enjoy a hearty lunch at Australia’s oldest continuously licensed inn. Have a group of 6 or more? Contact Local Travel Planner to arrange a private tour.

Fabulous day out!
Jun. 2021
Fabulous day out! Steve was so professional and lovely from our very 1st contact.
We had booked a private group tour and everything went according to plan. Steve was most personable and had great knowledge of the area. One of my friends has limited mobility and was not sure if she was going to be able to get on and off the bus but Steve arrived early to assist her in testing this out and thankfully it wasn’t an issue for her.
Touring the lovely vineyards of the Southern Highlands in Steve’s van was a luxury and just made for a glorious day out. I would highly recommend Steve and his Sip n Savour tour.

Hi Linda, Thanks so much for taking the time to share your experience with others and for highly recommending the tour. It was a delight to show your group around the Southern Highlands and to introduce you to wines that are made just a hop, skip and a jump from where you live. It was a fun day out - I can see why you are all such long-time friends. I hope you all enjoy(ed) the liquid memories! Cheers, Steve

Sip N Savour NSW Southern Highlands Wine Tour
Jun. 2021
I booked the Sip N Savour Premium Wine Bus Tour day trip for myself, my wife and 7 friends. As a private tour we were all picked up on-time by our driver Steve in a new Mercedes Van at a pre-agreed location near our homes. Steve was a fantastic driver and host for the day. He was very knowledgeable, witty, always relaxed but also very organised to ensure that we visited each of the planned 3 wineries and pub lunch in the Southern Highlands. The booking process was also really simple with each couple being able to book and pay separately which ensured that nobody owed anyone else money for the trip. The automated reminder alerts also made sure that everyone knew the date and pickup time for the tour! This really is an incredible value experience especially with the NSW Discovery voucher matching offer, lunch, a drink with lunch and a bottle of wine per person (valued at $50 per person)! The van ride was really smooth and the van itself was spotlessly clean. Steve encouraged lots of laughter during the trip and everyone had a really enjoyable time. This is a highly recommended tour for any Sydneysider who wants to discover some amazing wineries hidden right on Sydney's doorstep!

Hey Muzz, Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a comprehensive review. It's so good others reading it might think I wrote it myself! Seriously, we aim to provide a great experience from the time you book to when we drop you off at the end of the day. So it's always encouraging to hear that we're hitting the mark. Thanks for highly recommending the tour. I'll make sure Steve receives your feedback - though I'll tone it down a bit so he doesn't need to go up another hat size. Cheers, Steve (the other one!) PS. The van is a Renault, but just as smick as the Mercedes vans :-)

An outstanding southern Highlands wine your experience.
May 2021 • Friends
Had an excellent day. Steve was a fantastic guide. He was funny, friendly and professional. The bus was comfortable and modern. The vineyards we experienced were all delightful, with delicious wines and knowledgeable and helpful staff. Lunch was great, a large pub style meal and a lovely atmosphere. A five star experience that I would not hesitate to recommend to friends and strangers.

He is a fun, engaging and knowledgeable guide, who made an incredible experience. Every venue he chose was perfect, they were welcoming and had great selections.

Wonderful wine tour!
Jan. 2021
A group of 6 of us did a private tour and it was a wonderful girl’s day out. Having all been to the Southern Highlands before but not many of us visiting any of the wineries, it was great to discover some beautiful wineries so close to Sydney. Each of the wineries had delicious wines and friendly, knowledgeable staff guiding us through the tastings. Steve was a fantastic guide; friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries. The tour was such a relaxed pace and the pub in Berrima was a lovely stop for lunch. The perfect day trip from Sydney which I’d highly recommend!

Thanks Kate. It seems from the feedback I've received recently that a leisurely day sampling wine down in the Southern Highlands is hard to beat for a girl's day out. Thanks for joining the chorus! Just doing my part to help Sydney-siders discover our closest wine region - and it's fabulous cool-climate wines. Thanks so much for sharing your experience. And for the recommendation too!

What a great day, each winery had its own unique style and lovely wines. Our favourite was tertini. The lunch stop was a beautiful little Inn with delicious food. Steve was a friendly, knowledgeable tour guide. Highly recommend to anyone coming to Sydney. Thanks Steve.

Hi Nicole, It was so great to have you join us and I'm truly delighted you enjoyed the wines of the NSW Southern Highlands, and that you collected a few bottles to enjoy later too. You know where to get more when you run out. Thanks for highly recommending the day. Hopefully you'll entice other interstate wine lovers to check out the Highlands when they're next in Sydney. Cheers, Steve
