Second rate uncomfortable van with unknowledgeable driver
Maggie_R
, Oct 2021
This is not a wine tour- it is a trip a cheap van with dreadful uncomfortable seats that are not fit for purpose. Giles knows nothing about wine but thinks he does so his constant talking about something he knows nothing about becomes irritating - he likes low end wines so took us to low end vineyards with unmemorable wines- he seems to think tasting a lot a wine equals a good tour. There was no lunch included just a small plate of bad food out of a supermarket deli and very small portions of it as well. Unfortunately he ate with us so even the supposed lunch was him droning on. Don't waste your money

A great day out.

A very knowledgeable guide that made the day.The explanations of each wine gave us a good grounding of the wines. Also the differences between the wines was remarkable some nice some not so much.

Excellent guide and a terrific day tasting wines around the Canterbury region of South Island. We tasted over 30 varieties before the day was through.
