Example Day Out
Wine Compass’ premium wine tours are perfect for wine lovers and collectors, sommeliers and wine students. Even if your exposure to wine tasting is minimal, this will take you to the next level. Here are some examples of the premium, behind-the-scenes style features you can expect on your tour with us.
Example stop: Barrel tasting
A barrel tasting is a unique way of tasting wine straight from the barrel, and then later comparing it to the finished product. It allows you to test your comparative tasting skills, and also learn firsthand the difference the process can make.
Example stop: tasting and tour in the vines
Head out into the vines to get a closer look at the humble beginnings of your favourite wines, with an expert on hand to provide fascinating further information.
Example stop: Private tasting
Stop by another premium winery, where you’ll be able to taste more spectacular wines with a highly engaging and personal experience
Example stop: Gourmet lunch
This is a great opportunity for a gourmet lunch stop, with many options available through our Premium Wine Tours. Opt for anything from a scenic, relaxed picnic through to a sit down 3-course meal.
We have many other types of stops available too including:
- Cider makers
- Chocolate makers
- Dairies for cheese

“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.
