I recently took a dear friend to Margaret River to celebrate her 40th birthday and we were lucky enough to book a tour with Dennis. It was a perfect day out - a wonderful selection of wineries, lots of laughter, personal attention at every location and the flexibility to tailor our day as we wished. Dennis is fabulous company and has a great rapport with the staff at every winery. A bonus for us was being able to discuss what foods would be perfect with which wines (Dennis is a well-respected chef), and he shared several recipes that we're looking forward to trialling. He's passionate about sharing his knowledge of the region's wine without being a wine snob, so it's a tour that suits people with limited knowledge about wines through to serious oenophiles. If you want a guaranteed great day, especially if you want to feel a bit naughty and spoilt, this is the tour for you.

We couldn't recommend Dennis and his tour more highly. Dennis is well informed, well connected and well and truly good company. We had a really relaxed day run at our pace filled with great wine and food from places we'd never have found on our own. Dennis is obviously well known and well respected in the area and we reaped all the benefits!! A tour not to be missed. We will be back.

I read the previous reviews of Denis' tour & decided to book him based on what others had said. From the initial contact through email I had a good feeling about what to expect & he certainly didn't disappoint - the wineries he took us to were all fabulous & a great cross selection! One of the highlights was a private tasting at a winery that doesn't actually have a cellar door - so sitting in the barrel room talking to the actual wine maker was pretty special ! Denis is a font of knowledge about anything to do with Margaret River and he is obviously liked & respected within the industry by the way he was greeted by owners/wine makers/staff of the places we visited. Even if you have visited this wine region before you should take a tour with Denis - you will discover great new places & learn so much about the region!

I organized a trip with Dennis back in June as part of my fiancee's surprise 30th Birthday trip to Margaret River and we weren't disappointed. Knowledgeable, interesting and attentive we had an absolutely amazing day. Dennis way beyond in every way to make sure we had a great day and the fact both our guests (We were in a group of 4) & my fiancee were still talking about the trip in September says it all. 5 stars.

A few days ago, my husband and I went on a day's wine tour with Dennis. We are wine enthusiasts and wanted an informative tour of local vineyards. Dennis delivered the goods!
We visited and tasted wine at vineyards that were famous and not so famous. We were thrilled to find some very good wines at both types of vineyard, and Dennis' commentary and advice was very welcome, and useful.
We would both recommend this wine tour experience as a must for people like us, who are keen to learn more about the local wines and vineyard scene, and are not interested in a more generalised tour. Cheers to Dennis, and thanks for a great day of food and wine tasting and talk.
