    I joined this tour last Sunday in a very small group (me and a couple from Canada) and we spent a fantastic day in 5 different but very nice wineries in Mornington Peninsula tasting a lot of different wines produced in that area with different methods and feeling also the

    A day of adventure, for sure. We appreciated you joining Epicurean to the wonderful Mornington Peninsula. All the best.

    Our host Nicci met us at the hotel and we were extremely impressed the tour went ahead despite being just the two of us. And so began our day of delight! Each of the wineries we visited were unique in their own right. Not only visually stunning but warm and inviting. The wines

    Thank you to you both. It was a delight to spend the day with you both too. Hopefully we can meet again soon. All the best

    We visited four wineries: Yabby Lake Vineyard, which I found fairly uninspiring despite their many awards (and the somewhat disinterested staff); Quealy Winemakers, which was the most exciting in terms of the interesting grapes and blends they use and the enthusiasm of the

    Our tour is friendly and relaxed, enjoyed by people wanting to try wine from a different side of the world, get to know wineries and their stories with an open mind and fun spirit. I knew this was not going to be the tour for you when I was greeted rudely at the start of the day when calling to advise where I was parked outside your hotel. The day of your tour was Fathers Day and we opened the day up for you David, asking another single guest to change her date so you could visit what you thought was the only region to taste Pinot Noir. I organised this just a few days prior so advance booking at our usual lunch venue was not an option. I spent a lot of time talking about Father's Day in a boutique wine region with you, loved by locals where lunch at wineries is a popular event. We could have sat down at our usual lunch venue at 2pm, getting there at 130pm but you had said this was too late. (I agreed) Our first time to this lunch venue and a very big mistake of mine that I was not aware of the standard. I failed again by not offering a refund for this component to you, immediately. It was a shame there was only one more lovely guest that joined us, as a few more would have been interested in your wine country travel and made the day more rewarding for you. Unfortunately the Japanese lady's english vocab wouldn't extend to clones and whole bunch pressed discussion that you felt was lacking. Our winery partners did a sterling job introducing their wine and talking about the winery. That is a great moral advice of your story that you are passing on to the TripAdvisor touring community on asking about a lunch venue. We really have taken your comments on board and if we can't book our usual lunch venues will definitely notify guests of this so thank you. It is important that I have the opportunity to defend our business reputation with detailed context. We don't aim for average. In hindsight, (that wonderful thing) we should have not gone ahead with the tour on Fathers Day a few days out so thank you again for your comments. Happy Travels David.

    Bill did a great job explaining history and shared a lot of knowledge about wines/vines etc and the history of the region. Another highlight was lunch at Jackalope Restaurant. All vineyards visited were very sharing and open for discussion and some great tastings

    We appreciate your comments Russell and delighted that you enjoyed your day and lunch at the Mornington Peninsula. We also find the cellar door visits enthusiastic and inspiring which is why we choice them. They definitely make you feel comfortable with just enjoying wine and your day and aim not to overload you with information-so we are happy you enjoyed the experience. Bill enjoyed meeting you both. Happy Travels!

    Our tour guide, Bill is awesome. He is very knowledgeable and he gave us his full attention in looking out for us throughout the tour. (ie, sheltering us in the rain, asking how is the lunch and wines we tasted) We have make a total of 5 visits and each of these places are
