Impress by leading the way to Heathcote Wine Region

Wine Compass offers the perfect way to entertain and impress your clients or reward your staff for all of their hard work on a corporate wine tour to the Heathcote region. Catering for both large and small groups, our private tours are pioneering the way to this up and coming region and can be tailored to meet your exact requirements.
What better way to stand out from the crowd then to offer something uniquely different that you know they won’t have experienced previously.

“Company Day Trip”
Excellent day. Very happy with the service from Wine Compass and the support they gave us whilst arranging our trip. The itinerary was perfect to suit our needs. Well done!
“Work Christmas party day out”
Jarrod was the best tour guide/bus driver I’ve experienced, and I have done a lot of tours. Jarrod genuinely wanted to tailor our day to what we wanted to experience, he listened and learnt what type wine we all enjoyed. It didn’t take long before Jarrod picked up on our individual tastes in wine. He was knowledgeable and informative, and has a real passion for wine making. Well done Jarrod, you made a good day fantastic! Highly recommended!
“Highly Recommend for a great day out!”
A massive thank you to the team at Wine Compass for helping me organise our staff Christmas Party this year!
Adam was super attentive to our requests, made sure we were happy with all the stops chosen and ensured we were kept up to date with the itinerary, weather updates and so on. He was even able to accommodate last minute changes the Friday afternoon before our event on Sunday.
On the day Jimmy hosted the tour, he was great fun and made sure everyone had a blast. Everything ran super smoothly and was taken care of before hand that we had nothing to worry about on the day, except what wine to try next!
I would highly recommend using Wine Compass for any function; the entire experience from start to finish was amazing!
