Each has a different feel and style to it, as they are all family-based vineyards. After sightseeing the rural back road to get a feel for the local area, you will arrive at Ake-Ake, a producer of organic wines, for the first of your wine tastings. Next up will be the Marsden Estate, which has a wide range of different wines ensuring at least one will be to your palate. Finally, you will visit Cottle Hill, which boasts an eclectic mix of ports, wines, and liqueurs and provides the perfect finish for your tasting experience.

    Important information

    Know before you go

    •  The Jeep Wrangler can accommodate up to four participants (if required, three will be sharing the rear seat of the Jeep so you will need to be "friendly")
    • Some agility is required to climb into the Jeep
    • The Mustang GT can accommodate up to three passengers (if required, two will be in the back seat)
    • The Mustang has an exemption from some of the passenger service vehicle rules as it does not resemble a minivan or taxi that the legislation was written for (you need to acknowledge there is reduced access and space in the rear seat, but there is room for two average sized adults)
