We signed up for the wine tasting tour - "Best of the Best" rather than the Discovery tour which others have commented on. Sean runs these two tours on alternate days. The "Best of the Best" is a small 6 (or less) person tour in a Range Rover and covers three wineries, two boutique establishments (one of which is solely open to Sean's customers) and one large scale producer in Cape Mentelle, where we had privileged behind the scenes access to the working of the winery, capped with a unique wine and food matching lunch which both gave special information on winemaking at a large first class winery, and how to make the best combinations of food and wine. If you want unique insights, and access to special boutique wineries, yet still taste roughly 20 of the best wines of the area, then this for you. But if you want to visit as many wineries as possible and "tick off" the number of wines you taste, then look elsewhere.
And finally the day ended with a trip out to the coast in the Leeuwin National Park, to see the spectacular coastline, dodging Kangaroos on the way. A fitting end to the day -sitting in the sun amongst spectacular scenery.
All of this is without mentioning Sean himself, who was an ideal host and guide, offering particular insights to the wine, the history and make-up of the region, and the key individuals.
We were so pleased we chose this tour!
