What a great way to visit the Margaret River wineries, meet an interesting bunch of people, enjoy a delicious lunch and learn lots about the industry on the way, not to mention tasting a lot of great wines.
Our tour driver for the day, John, picked us up at 9.40am and we were in the first vineyard as it opened at 10am ready to begin our day’s wine tasting. We visited 2 large commercial vineyards, Xanadu and Voyager in the morning, and 2 smaller family-run cellar door only type vineyards in the afternoon, Jarvis and Edwards. They were all very different and we learned a lot from John about each winery, as well as a host of other interesting facts about the local area. There were only 4 of us on the morning part of the tour but we were joined by a further group of 5 for the afternoon - a very friendly international group which made the day even more enjoyable.
Lunch was organised at Olio Bello, delicious food on the outdoor terrace with a glass of wine included. We finished the day by visiting the Margaret River Brewhouse for a cooling ale and plate of chips and were back at our guesthouse by 5pm.
Highly recommended and great value.
