What people are saying about Pokolbin

I would not hestitate to recommend this tour, we booked for a Thursday and there was 6 of us. Our driver Bill was a wealth of knowledge and we learnt so much from him during the day. We visted one of their new partners, the Wine Lab at the end of the day and thought this visit could have been put in a bit earlier, Nathan was very informative and showed us his operation, he also has beers to sample. Lunch was a selection of gourmet meats, cheeses, bread, biscuits, fruit, banana bread etc all in a box to share between two with a complementry glass of wine. Overall a fantastic day.

Excellent wines, self tasting experience enabled us to go at our own pace, great accompanying notes and every morsel was delicious. Highly recommended
