Your Southern Highlands wine tour Savour the best local wine, beer, gin, food and much more on your private Highlands tour.

Your private Southern Highlands wine tour will uncover the best pockets of this stunning region as you traverse scenic country roads, sample cool climate wine, dine on local cuisine and enjoy its unique rustic charm.

Your tour can begin in Sydney and surrounds or locally within the Southern Highlands wine region from your AirBnB, hotel or anywhere as required. This is your day and we will do whatever is needed to make it truly memorable, so whether you are planing a hens party, corporate trip, ladies day out, family or any reason at all we will work with you to ensure that the locations as well as the tone and timing will be right for your group.

We don’t want your day to feel too rushed so typically 5-6 stops works well on a full day with lunch being anything from private grazing table amongst the vines, historic pub feed, lazy lunch in a local restaurant or snacking your way through some of the best food stops in the Southern Highlands. Some of the fantastic local wineries we work with include Joadja Estate,  Centennial Vineyard, Tractorless Vineyard, Tertini and Bendooley Estate as well as the historic Joadja Distillery which can be included in the day.

The Southern Highlands winery tour itinerary below flows really well but if you would like to make some changes to it then that is totally fine and we will work with you to fine tune the perfect day.


A note on tasting fees: Due to covid all wineries are now charging tasting fees, usually at $10pp. This is not included in base costings so will be added to order after number of winery visits are confirmed.
