We took this tour right after Christmas, a busy summer season in Australia. Our driver picked us up at our hotel and took us to 3 different types of wineries. First was a major, very touristy one. At the second winery, he selected wine paired with cheese appetizers for us. The third was a small winery where the owner made the wine and the pizza for lunch! We are not connoisseurs, but wanted to see the Australian Wine Country since we are from the Finger Lakes of central NY where there are over 150 wineries. The private, made-for-us tour was exactly what we wanted - beautiful scenery, the driver was very professional and good company, and we learned a lot about wines in Australia, suitable to our personal taste.
