ABOUT US

We love people, wine and having a great time!

For the Love of Grape began for one main reason WE LOVE WINE! Karen started operating in 2008 in the Bellarine Region and back then it was a relatively small wine region so she could not help but fall in love with wineries in the area. Not only were they providing amazing cool climate wines but the people were passionate about their wine and the scenery was just breath taking, so she wanted to help showcase this wonderful region to all of you!

She has since extended her services to many other regions including Echuca/Moama, Yarra Valley, Warburton and Mornington Peninsula. The reason for this is because our customers asked us to!

Some 7 years later the business has expanded to now having 3 main offices & organisational staff, all who have spent time in the various wine regions we like to explore.  

Alicia started MP Designated Drivers (on Mornington Peninsula) in 2013 and was looking to expand into other regions, again because her customers asked her to. Now we service several areas in Victoria, Karen has ventured out into another passion, and Alicia has stepped in and her goal is to continue to provide a 5 star service in several Victoria regions.

 

What is important to note is that we are not a bus company that has decided to include wine tours! We are a professional and personal wine tour company that offers a high quality service to suit the needs of each of our customer requirements.  All of our friendly hosts have been chosen for their extensive knowledge of the regions they tour, their customer service and their ability to make our guests comfortable. Many are locals and happily provide some local knowledge to those who are curious.

Leveraging Karen's extensive corporate and program management background, For the Love of Grape (or FLOG as affectionately known to my staff) is built on principles of providing excellent service. A company that can be trusted… when we say we will call you back, we do! Leah has been involved with FLOG for over 11 years now, she knows her stuff and will most certainly look after you!

We hope you join us soon on one of our wine tours and remember we love hearing from you so please ensure you keep in touch.

Karen Davidson & Alicia Cass

Please note it is important for all FLOG staff to quality test the wine and service at each of the wineries so we do frequent many wineries for team meetings, Xmas functions, or for any other reason!!! (It’s a tuff job but someone has to do it!!)
