I recently went on a private wine tour in Bickley Valley with 3 girlfriends. We had the best day, Shannon our guide was so friendly and passionate about supporting small local businesses. The car was so luxurious. We visited small wine cellar doors with the most amazing wines to try and met the loveliest devoted business owners. We ate a delicious platter for lunch with amazing views over the valley. I can highly recommend this tour.

Shannon and Paul have an amazing tour setup. They made our staff xmas event very special by tailor making our tour based on our likes of wine and gin. The Bickley Valley destination was perfect, it was great to visit some wineries that we had never herd of and to support the smaller setups.

We did a great private tour of the Bickley wine region with Shannon. Our transport was really comfortable and Shannon’s knowledge of the area was great. We tried lots of interesting and different wines and were entertained by the stories and info from the winemakers and owners. Lunch at La Fattoria was delicious. We had time to sit and enjoy a couple of glasses of wine at the end of the tour. I would definitely recommend booking a tour with Shannon and her crew.

We had never been to the Bickley Valley, what an amazing hidden gem! Paul does a fabulous job. All our stops were great, we had plenty of time to taste (everything!) and lunch at the Packing Shed was delicious. Definitely recommend.
