We select a range of the large, through to the small family-run wineries, where you can taste the zesty Sauvignon Blancs and a wide variety of our other tasty cultivars. Beginners will be guided through the wines on offer by the cellar door staff and connoisseurs can debate the merits of their favorites. This fun, flexible and informative tour is designed to appeal to all visitors with a love of wine, no matter how detailed their knowledge.

Visit the barrel rooms to experience the rich aromas of wine maturing in French oak barrels, then follow your guide for a walk and talk through a vineyard to learn the secrets of how climate, soil and wine-makers’ skill that makes this Sauvignon unique in the world. 

Spoil yourself with regional seafood delicacies during the lunch stop at a vineyard restaurant (at your own cost), then continue the wine tasting until it is time to return to your accommodation. A stop at the Chocolate factory to taste their hand made gourmet chocolates, is a brilliant way to end this exceptional day.
