We stayed in Bowral for the Easter weekend and managed to get onto this great tour with Kate. Would highly recommend, Kate is a fabulous host/driver for the day and we visited some great wineries - which we even visited again in the days that followed!

What a way to celebrate 20 years of friendship, great wine, yummy food and grape stomping all organised by Kate. Thank you so much for an extremely relaxing and well organised day. I would highly recommend the Grape Escape for anyone wanting to book a wine tour with a friendly and knowledgeable person. Thanks again Kate.
