Recent tripadvisor feedback
What a great way to spend the day, delicious wine, gorgeous views, amazing lunch and a fantastic host. Jarrod was fabulous, super knowledgeable on the vineyards and different wines – he discreetly sat back and listened to our feedback on the tastings and very quickly noticed our likes and dislikes and was able to advise the next vineyards which wines each person might like (he was spot on).
Could not recommend this tour more highly – thank you so much
“Fantastic day out!”
A HUGE thank you to the team at Wine Compass who made our anniversary special. Adam and Gabi were a pleasure to book with and gave us plenty of choices for stops. On the day we had Jarrod as our host and he was incredible. He had great knowledge of wine and an obvious passion for his job. He kept us on track whilst giving us space throughout the day.
