Notes on Booking:
The first venue time is between 10am & 1pm. Your pickup time is determined by how long it takes to get from your pickup location to the first venue. So, if you want a first venue time of 10am and you’re 30 mins away from the valley your pickup time is 9:30am so you arrive at the first venue on time. Note that all of the wineries close at 5pm.
Only $250 is required to book. Your deposit is NOT refundable so only make a booking if you’re committed to the tour. Please also view our terms and conditions.
Is This Tour Suitable for Hen’s Parties?
