Stel’s Tour was our first tour upon arriving in Hobart, it was just My friend & I on the tour. I must say from enjoying a coffee and quick breakfast first at a local French Café (Daci&Daci) to the end of the day plus the after service folow up, I would do it all over again. Stel is nothing but tentative, and passionate about wine and about the people who produce the regions wine. He personalised the tour changing up a vineyard half way through, matching us to the cellar while having fun ALL DAY, and it was perfect. Such a personalised tour with Stel, in a comfortable vehicle, visiting 4 boutique wineries with a delicious lunch in the picturesque town of Richmond, while enjoying the picturesque landscapes on our travels. Stel provided extensive knowledge on how to see, smell, taste and appreciate the local wines throughout the 4 wineries. I would highly recommend Stel to anyone in Hobart and I would put this as a must do experience. Trust the reviews you read and book Stel now you will not regret it.

Thank you for your wonderful review. You are lovely people and wonderful guests. I am lucky that I have worked in an industry that I love for 45 years - To look forward to discussing wines with interesting people, and to be able to look at some of the best scenery in the world (and smell some of the best wine in Australia - alas, the Zero blood alcohol rules prohibit me from imbibing) is one of the gifts of being alive. Take care, stay safe and be well. Stel 0434411542 stel@stelavino.com.au

I think Stel has probably forgotten more about wine than I will ever know. A great character and super knowledgeable guide who looked after us well, chose some great wineries and is clearly a favourite guide of those we visited. Pick up and drop off from/to our accom and all ran very smoothly. Great work.

What an awesome day! A very personalised tour with Stel, in a comfortable vehicle, visiting 4 boutique wineries with a delicious lunch in the picturesque town of Richmond. Stel has a huge knowledge of wines, from grape to bottle and his tasting notes will be a great source of reference for the future. We loved visiting wineries by appointment with intimate and personal tastings and meeting the wine makers in most of the cellar doors. This is a full day, but a very worthwhile experience. Highly recommended!

Things are quiet in Hobart at the moment, so there was just the two of us on the tour. Stela bought our coffees in the amazing bakery where we met and had festooned the mini bus with ‘Happy Birthday’ balloons as it was my partner’s birthday. The first cellar door had 12 tastings. Hic! All wineyards were top quality and we learned so much from Stela who was an amazing source of knowledge. There was no pressure to buy, but some of the wines were so good I could not resist. The first vineyard did free postage to the mainland and the rest were subsidised to make it worth doing. Lunch was in an historic building in Richmond where Stela treated my partner to a yummy Russian honey cake, made on the premises. Our last stop was a lovely relaxed stop where we chatted away in the afternoon sun about everything but wine with Barry the vineyard owner. It was a great end to a most enjoyable day. By no means my first tour but by far the best.

We booked Stel and his mini bus for a whole day tour of Tasmania's vineyards in October 2021. Everything was perfect in our opion: Stel was very punctual and ran a tight ship all day. He is full of stories and detailed wine knowledge and made an excellent selection of vineyards (5 in total, good mix of large-small wineries) and chose a delicious lunch spot in Richmond. The day went by in a heart-beat and we truly enjoyed every minute of it. We can absolutely recommend Stel and his wine tour service
