What people are saying about Bannockburn

We really enjoyed the tour. Gary was friendly and informative, the wineries were wonderful. Loved the wine cave and Emily did a wonderful job at Gibston Valley Winery. Dominion Rd Winery had wonderful views and great wines. The meal was lovely, something different and the wines were well matched. Would have been nice to have a room of our own to enjoy the meal. Our last stop at Kinross was great too and we were able to taste wines from more than one winery. Altogether a fabulous day. Thank you!

Wonderful day out, great food and wine. For a beer drinker , it was great to try all the different wines and learn something new. Gary our guide is a lovely person and so knowledgeable himself. he made the day extra special with his friendly manner.

Our tour driver Paul was great and shared his knowledge of the history of each winery. Loved the first 2 of 4 wineries, the 3rd hosted the gourmet bbq lunch which was delicious.

Vicky was the most helpful and gracious guide. the vinyards chosen were incredibly knowledgeable and the wine's were descibed superbly.

Great wine tasting tour with a great guide, Julianna.
