What’s different about For the Love of Grape wine tours?
We offer complete flexibility! We are a wine tour company that allows all our customers to have input into the itinerary for the day! From the well known wineries to the small appointment only wineries, we visit them all! All our hosts are true hosts that guide you through the day to ensure it is memorable and relaxing day.
Can children join the tour?
We do not have any capsule, car seat or booster seats so we are unable to cater for any children under the age of 7 which is a requirement by Victorian law. For children over the age of 7 they can join a tour but they will be charged the same amount as an adult price.
What days do you operate?
Every day of the week for any group size over 6. We do not operate on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Eve, New Years Day or Good Friday.
What is your cancellation policy?
We do require confirmation of final numbers and final payment 7 days prior to your scheduled tour. In the event you need to cancel your tour or have individuals who cancel after this date may not be eligible for a refund. Please note: any cancellations provided in less than 7 days will not be eligible for a refund as all tour costs (lunches, tasting fees, pamper packages) are paid prior to your tour.
Are gift vouchers available?
Gift Vouchers are a great idea for sponsoring charity events or for corporate gifts for staff or customers. Note that gift vouchers are only available for groups over 10.
