It was really fun. Chloe was really friendly and funny. We enjoyed the wine tasting, we went to three different places. Had so much wine to test than I expected haha The view of the vineyard was amazing. Last but not least, the lunch was a delight.

The best day!!! You get to see and taste a variety of Melbourne food and wine. Dave was the best tour guide. Will definitely do another one. Emilie, Anna and Tom from Brisbane
