Kent is extremely knowledgeable on everything we asked and we had a fantastic morning and afternoon. We did not book a private but it ended up just being the two of us which made for a memorable tour with Kent. We went in not knowing anything about wine and Kent quickly picked up on what we liked and took us... More

We had the most amazing day with Kent! We had emailed back and forth to plan the perfect day and all his recommendations were definitely the best spots.

Through Kent's diligence with his emails, we managed to get a last minute booking on a 5-hour tour with another couple. Kent is a very flexible and informative guide, and took us to an interesting selection of wineries, covering a range of wine styles and grapes, including: Gehringer, Hester Creek, Tinhorn Creek, and Black Hills. We really enjoyed the day,... More

Nothing special, this is your standard wine tour. Kent was friendly and polite, and mostly stayed out of the way. This wine tour caters to everyone, with stops at both large (popular) wineries, as well as small estate wineries (by request). Good accessible price point, which is great if you just want to be driven around from winery to winery... More

The driver was very polite and helpful. We saw five wineries in one morning. At each winery you are escorted in, and you do a typical wine tasting by the helpful winery staff. The wineries varied a great deal in quality of both the facilities and wine. No actual disappointments, one great find, and one where I wasn't expecting much,... More
