What people are saying about Pokolbin

This was a truly great day out. Our guide Julz was hilarious and got everyone talking and shared great knowledge with us about the wines and grape growing/wine making processes and tips on tasting. We had far more tastings than I would have expected, a great gourmet box (for lunch (catered for gluten free for me which was lovely) and we visited multiple venues with lovely, welcoming staff. Very good value for money. The group of us were great friends by the end and we were rather merry!
