Disappointing choices for lunch especially since the tour was quite expensive compared to some of the other companies - four choices only( fried rice with or without pork and noodles with or without chicken).

If you are loking for a different winery experience, this is the one to do. The Cube was fascinating in it's design and history of the creation. The guide was very knowledgable and general vibe was fun and quirky. Fun day all round, but it would have been nice to spend more time at one of the wineries, felt very rushed.

I had a fantastic day, The Cube and the lunch, then 3 more wineries and morning tea at Information Centre where I bought a nice bag. I met so many interesting and friendly passengers... I also bought a lovely dress and yes some wine! Thank you I had a great day.
