Thank you for your review Tim.
Im glad you felt the experience was great and you enjoyed your wines but you were a 'little' disappointed.
Unfortunately your driver became a bit unwell with an ear ache during your tour but didnt want to draw attention to it as the day was your wine tour day out in the Hunter Valley. Im sorry you felt a little disappointed by his not explaining the various stops to you.
The 'penultimate' stop you described as a bottle shop is a gentleman who's an actual wine maker/producer in his own right along with making his own spirits. Small batch wine makers are very diverse as the wine industry in the Hunter Valley is very layered and not all wine and spirit makers look alike. Again I'm so deeply sorry, you must not have not picked this up during the talk and tasting there.
Our tours are designed for you to experience the many different styles of wine making from the big to the small and food places such as cheeses, olive and olive oils along with chocolates,
Im so glad your lunch venue was excellent. I enjoy visiting 4 Pines, the Farm. The lunch and atmosphere there is always enjoyable, especially the farm animals.
The Cheese and Chocolate stop is in the tour description, a cheese and chocolate stop where you get to sample various yummy cheeses and chocolates and get to buy something to take away with you. The shop is pretty amazing as you would have seen with a bit of something for everyone. Im again surprised the cheese shop owners did not point out there was alcohol there for sale as well, they usually do.
Im taking from this on a whole you enjoyed your wine and food experience day out with us except you were a little disappointed that your driver became unwell and didnt talk to you enough and the cheese and chocolate shop was food only.
Thank you for sharing your review with us. It seems there were a lot of good parts of your tour with us and you enjoyed your day. This is great to hear, thank you for sharing your day with us.
Thank you, Julie
