Overall it was good

Overall, it was only a good thing that one or two stops would have been enough for the tasting, as it would have had more time to learn more about the wines, their origin and the history of the individual estate. There was simply not enough time for this and it was estimated that it was not desired for individual wineries. It was also very "hectic" because you always had to look at the clock, but the good thing was there was really delicious wine.

Great tasting wine at all of the stops and a top notch lunch to go along with it make this a perfect day trip for anyone who enjoys wine tastings.

Too many people on the tour, who were certainly not interested in wine. Very touristy. Not great to learn about Australian women.
