What’s better than a wine tour? Two wine tours!

Private Wine Tour

Thursday 15th and Friday 16th June, 2017

This group of friends from NSW decided to go on not one wine tour but two wine tours, incorporating two of victoria’s cool climate wine regions – the beautiful Mornington Peninsula and the magnificent Yarra Valley.

“Two Days of Wine Touring”

“We hired Ric to take us on a private Wine Tour of Mornington Peninsula and then the next day, to the Yarra Valley. He picked us up in Melbourne at our breakfast restaurant and dropped us back to Melbourne. During the day he was very flexible, allowing us to choose where we wanted to go, but he also gave us a lot of advice. We ate at fabulous lunch destinations and tasted wine at some really beautiful vineyards. It was a great couple of days. Thanks Ric” – by Michele B, June 2017
