Taking a shuttle around the vineyards and wineries is the most sensible thing to do in the Hunter - so much wine, so little time.

They basically lie about availability to stop you from calling other operators and have no qualms abut going back on their word. I would be extremely cautious about anything these people promise to deliver.
