    Hi, the wine tour we did on 29 May 2021, was great. The guide/driver was very knowledgeable and personable, and he drove with excellent safety and care. I enjoyed each of the wineries, the first one was the best (Gomersal Wines) as the owner gave us a great introduction and history of her vineyard and it felt much more personal than the larger wineries. The only real let down for me was the average lunch. I know it was a platter of local produce and it went well with the wine, but in hindsight I would prefer a more sumptuous lunch, maybe a selection of steaks, fish, poultry and pork, cooked to our liking, but then again the price would have to increase. As it was, I had a pleasant day, my co-worker enjoyed his first wine tour and it was with a great bunch of people who all become friends by the end of the day. Thanks heaps, I'd certainly go with you again, maybe to the other wines regions near Adelaide next time I'm in town. Thanks and cheers :)
