My wife and I departed Picton. Vehicle arrived punctually and we met Keith our guide. As a grape grower Keith was able to talk from experience about the wine industry, viticulture and share views about wine making. He kindly went out of his way to explain cane vs spur pruning. The wineries we visited gave a great experience. We enjoyed the 5 1/2 hours thoroughly. Good wine, conversion and learning. Only suggestion for the wineries was maybe a few little crackers or some type of food would have balanced the wine consumption.

Fantastic to hear you had a great day out with Keith - its awesome for us to have a vineyard owner on the MWT team and for him to impart his knowledge!

Friendly, informative tour to a combination of lesser known wineries (Bladon and Framingham) along with bigger ones (AlanScott and Saint Clair). Delano our quite was great...although having done a tour with and without lunch, with lunch makes the better experience IMHO.

Kevin was great, we even saw him the next day in Picton! He was very knowledgeable about the area and even took us to the chocolate factory to end the tour. Other tour passengers were so nice and loved sharing their experiences. Went to 4 vineyards... Lawsons, Spy Valley, No.1 and Nautilus. Bottles ranged from 20 to 30 each and were wonderful.

Superbe excursion, très belle vue. Je recommande surtout le dernier vignoble monté par un français d'oirigine la jeune hôtesse vous parle en français. Chapeau! Les vins sont excellents et les hôtes compétents et accueillants.

Weinproben sind natürlich ein Muss, wenn man hier in der Region ist. Vier verschiedene Weingüter werden angefahren, überall großzügige Tastings. Fahrer versucht bei der Auswahl auf die Wünsche der Gruppe einzugehen. Alles top!
