Food for lunch and the wine stops were great. The time allowed after each tasting was sufficient to shop around and get ready for the next stop.

Our guide Richard was resourceful and fluent with good information. Richard was a great glue that helped bond 7 (3 British couples and Swami) of us wine connoisseurs. The day long trip was conducted in an efficient manner. My family and I are enjoying the wines that I had purchased at Gibbston Valley. Hope I can enjoy more wine tours in NZ during my next trip to Kiwiland.
