Our group of 3 couples did a full day tour with Bryan. He was punctual and catered to our specific tastes within our wine knowledge. He introduced us to some amazing boutique wineries and now we have expanded our knowledge and tastes to wine we had previously thought we weren't keen on. Fantastic day and lunch at La Cassalinga was superb. Bryan's knowledge of the Hunter region makes for a memorable day catered to your specific requirements and tastes. He even went and sourced olives for us to have with our cheese board and wine that night. Can't recommend Bryan and Vintage Connections higher for a small personalised tour of the Hunter region and wineries. Fantastic day that we'll remember for ages and would definitely book with Bryan when we are next in the Hunter.

Hi Sue and crew! Thank you so much for leaving a review of your private Hunter Valley wine tour experience with Vintage Connections. It was such a pleasure touring with you folks! I have some great memories of heads in vats, barrel tastings and some true surprise as we found you wines that you did not think that you liked... and now do! Awesome! How good were those olives? 'Good wine and Great memories flow together like honey and gold' - Bryan, Vintage Connections web site It is a privilege and a pleasurer to help build memories and experiences that enrich lives. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your experience! I apologies for my slow response, we have had a lot going on with trying to survive the latest Covid 19 lock down.. Stay safe and we hope to see you again soon! Warm regards Bryan

Hi Craig Thank you for leaving a review of your private tour experience in the Hunter Valley with Vintage Connections. It was a joy to be a part of your surprise birthday celebrations.. your wife is sneaky! 🤣 I think that the younger generation who joined us may have screeched their wine appreciation a little and am stoked that we found you so many great wines to take home. Trust you local! 👍 Looking forward to the next! Warm regards Bryan

Bryan gave our small party of two an experience that transcended the bottle. The boutique wineries were personal, indulgent, and wonderfully hospitable. Bryan's story telling kept us entertained as we were transported to wonderful tastings that showcased the best The Hunter had to offer. Totally recommend.

Hi Rachael Thanks for your review! We always love to take lovers of good wine and great experience into the lesser known parts of the Hunter Valley.. You coined the phrase 'the experience transcends the bottle'.. and right you are! Great wine and great experience should go hand in hand! It's definitely not just about what is inside the bottle! 👌😉 It was a pleasure showing you around the Valley that we love. ❤ I hope that we see you again! Warm regards Bryan

Hi Hayley Thanks so much for your review! Hey, thank you also for noticing that our attitude to customer service includes personalizing your tour specifically to your desires.. It is a bit selfish really.. because it is what gives us s great satisfaction! 😍. Storytelling, entertainment, local knowledge and a passion for what we do drives us to go above and beyond with out prejudice or regret! I hope that we see you again Warm regards Bryan
