Our guide, Adrian, was very informative and helpful. The wineries we visited were excellent, provided interesting information and were generous with the tastings. Lunch was tasty and efficiently provided, with plentiful helpings and pleasant service. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone living or travelling in Victoria.

Norm was an excellent host, taking us to a variety of good wineries. We found that some of the wineries would even freight our purchases home free of charge. Lunch at the Old Apple Shed was an absolute feast. Then finally we had a tour around the sights of the Mornington Peninsula. A great day!
