    Thank you for taking the time to review our River Cruise & Vineyard and we are sorry to hear you had a few issues with Sittella Wines and the Providore which we hope we can address; Just to explain....on the boat you are offered 4 wines (2 whites & 2 reds from the Swan Valley region) to sample, then at Windy Creek you have 17 difference wines to taste so by the time you arrive at Sittella for lunch you are offered 1 bubbles, 2 whites & a red (of which you choose a glass to have with lunch). After lunch you are welcome and instructed by the tour guide that you can wander back to cellar door to taste more wines if you wish. They don't offer any extra prior to lunch as the group has already had 26 wines! Though you certainly could have had more after lunch. At the Providore the chocolate liqueur tastings are complementary so we not sure why they didn't offer you any though will pass on your comments. We do hope we have explained the reasoning behind the extra tastings prior to lunch and sorry to see you didn't take up the offer to wander back into cellar door after lunch.

    My brother and I had a wonderful day trip. At first we were on the ship for two hours. The water could have tasted better. The wine tasting with bread and cheese was good. Then we went with a small bus to three different wineries. Driver and tour guide Claude explained
