I begin your day of leisure with pick up from the Daylesford Royal Hotel in our deluxe mini-bus (13-seater) before showing you through 5 of the best boutique cellar doors Daylesford has to offer: a delicious mixture of wine, cider, spirits, liqueurs & ports. We also take you behind-the-scenes of production of these award-winning drops whilst chatting to the makers. It's all about the stories, the characters and results of hard work! Half-way through the day you'll indulge in a 5-star lunch including chef selection main & glass of wine (or beer, cider, coffee & tea). All tastings are included as well as bottled water and individually packaged chips to munch on. Since starting in 2010, my tours have provided beginners, connoisseurs, groups and corporates with an experience like no other. Certified, trained and qualified by the Wine Spirits Education Trust, I can teach you how to swirl, sip and the finer points of tasting and wine making, or just sit back and relax and enjoy the ride. My relationship with the makers ensures a casual chat and laugh with these characters. Not to mention a good dose of furry fun with my well-trained, adorable labrador Maizy who rides along with us!
My Labrador Maizy and I welcome you! Please contact me prior for tasting preferences, pick up address or to do one of my shorter tours with 10am or 2pm start. I hail from the Barossa region and have worked in wineries for 20 years. I moved my family to Daylesford and started wine tours in 2010 seeing a real need to showcase the hardworking makers of this region. These amazing people work so hard to make such small amounts of their multi award-winning produce. It's all about quality over quantity - "that's boutique thru and thru". I love to humbly entertain people from across the globe.
