“Brilliant day with Mandy at Wine for Dudes”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

A group of us from Singapore had a fun time on the WFD tour (9 Sep 2012) with Mandy as designated driver! She was funny, informative (facts and tips you only get from true blue locals), honest and flexible with our semi-tipsy requests for chocolate, cheese and groceries for dinner at the end of the day.The tour was relaxed and varied, visiting big name wineries and the smaller family run vineyards to taste their very fine wines! We all had a blast not only with the guide, beverages and good food but with the company of the other passengers which were from all walks of life - younger, older it didn't matter, we all had one thing in common - a GREAT TIME! Thanks Mandy and Wine for Dudes!!

“John at Wine for dudes”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

We had a great time on the WFD tour( July 28th 2012). John was our guide and he made it a real fun,full day. No pressure, no pretentious waffle, just right for people like us who wanted a good day out without being bored with OTT wine speak! Fantastic food at our lunch stop and my advice would be "skip breakfast" to leave room for it all.A great way to see some of the beauty that is Margaret River. Cheers John

“Awesome day out”
Reviewed 10 September 2012

My boyfriend and I went on the wine for Dudes tour and visited the Laurance Estate (where they served a stunning lunch), Hayshed Hill - so many tastings, Cheeky Monkey Brewery, chocolate factory and liqueur factory (you have to try the chococlate caramello Koala cocktail - it was DELICIOUS!). We had an awesome day and I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone coming to visit the region.

“Great day out!”
Reviewed 6 September 2012

I found John to be very relaxed yet passionate about the Margaret region and presented it all like a bit of a 'dude'! He was flexible on the winery choices and as no-one had any specific requests, we went on his recommendations. Along the way was a brief stop to the Cheese Factory where we sampled some yummy varieties followed by a fantastic lunch of gourmet pizzas where we made our very own glass of wine to enjoy! The last winery had a great brewery attached and it was a good time to chill out by the fireplace and order a sample of beers and reflect on the day. And the final stop was the Chocolate Factory. Hand-made sweets, fudges and the like to tempt you and you never leave empty handed. Thanks Wine for Dudes, I will look at Chardonnay's in a very different light now!

“Celebration and thankyou to friends”
Reviewed 26 August 2012

16 of us, young and old! boarded the bus early on the sunny Saturday 18th August '12.
Ashley was our awesome driver and tour guide, he was warm, friendly and funny! Ashley has a genuine love of the region and the natural beauty all around us. We enjoyed an excellent day out tasting wines, beer, local produce and an incredible lunch at the Margaret River Berry Farm. We didn't return home to Busselton until the end of the day, with drop offs made by Ashley - not a problem. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and would highly recommend 'Wine for Dudes', very relaxing, laid back and no pressue - just what you need to have FUN !!!
Lizzy and Ruth and friends want to thank 'Wine for Dudes' for making our day so great.
