(YES!…you’ll taste ‘Monkey Bay’ at the very winery which produces it.)
We know much about the history surrounding the development of this area’s vineyards with Croatian immigrants that progressed from making ‘backyard’ Port and Sherry (of which our Mothers used to buy!), to the manufacture of multi award-winning Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Merlot wine varieties of today.
Also, this tour is very sustainable.
As we are local residents (-and we adhere to only operating locally-), our profits will be directed back into our own community. We also offset our tour emissions by a Native tree planting for every tour we undertake. (The trees are planted and remain protected on our own farm).
You may prefer to purchase your own tree for this tour, but if not, then the day’s tour-group are joint ‘custodians’ for the day’s tree!
We have access to the expert advice of the staff of many of the wineries for wine tasting,
and some of these wineries include:
House of Nobilo
- Very friendly cellar staff who are extremely knowledgeable about the wines they produce. Generous samples!
Matua Valley Wines
