Customer Reviews

An awesome day out! Legend was our guide and he is very friendly, accommodating, chill and a great laugh. You will be lucky to get him. We had a nasty day in terms of weather, but it didn't affect the tour. Fab wines, a lovely range of vineyards and the food for lunch was absolutely delicious. I was well catered for as a vegetarian. - Aisling Fahy


Had a great time. Excellent guide, very reasonably priced and great wineries. Too bad it costs so much to ship to the states or I would have bought a bunch! Thx - mike kasberg


I had such a wonderful experience with Wine Flies! The wineries were all fantastic, but my favorite was definitely Mitre Bay and the cheese pairing they offered! It was such a great personal experience. Our group of 7 really enjoyed ourselves, with only 1 other couple in the group, we kind of adopted them into our group. We all had a wine-filled day of fun! - Jason Takahashi


I loved it! Terrence was super knowledgable, as were all of the places we went. I especially enjoyed going to the smaller, family owned or boutique farms, because it felt like a more personal experience. - Julia Wellisch


What a fabulous trip! We were taught the correct techniques for tasting, we were given the historical background of the region and it was all followed by a quiz at the end of the tour! A special thanks to Barry for being such a fun and enthusiastic guide - Alexandra Katsivalis
