Julie was a great host and our group enjoyed the visits to the different craft breweries and brew pubs. Lovely way to spend the afternoon with friends and sample different beers.

Hops n GrapesTours took us to the Pyrenees so we could sample local wines in quaint cellar doors hidden in bushlands.The variety of wines reflects the Aussie landscape they are grown in. It was a full day tasting wines and local produce at five cellar doors: Peerick Wines, Grape farm, Sally’s Paddock (lunch here) Equus (it also has a museum of rocking and Carousel horses under restoration) and Bigibila. Thanks, Julie Rose who ran this delightful tour for some of us wine tour newbies. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment.

Loved every minute of our tour! Julie has amazing knowledge of wineries around the area. What I found most appealing was Julie picking a few of the smaller overlooked wineries that weren’t on the main road, who’s passion for their wines came through in the taste of their wines. For the price, definitely a day jam packed with value. Will definitely be rebooking!

A lovely tour of the Victorian Pyrenees wine region. We sampled local wines from smaller vineyards and heard about their techniques. It was a full day tasting wines and local produce at five cellar doors with a pleasant lunch at one. The transport was very comfortable; plenty of snacks and water for the trip, and our tour guide Julie looked after us very well. Most enjoyable!

The wines have been of great quality, with good tastings. A meal was also included in the price, which was great value. I would greatly recommend Hops and Grapes tours to all age groups.

Julie was amazing to deal with… She was very attentive and tailored the day to us. Personal touches like asking what music we liked when booking so she could make a playlist of what we enjoyed really made it special. She was informative and helpful, and wanted to make sure we were happy at all times… She had plenty of water and snacks to keep us going for the day… She was friendly and fun and couldn’t do enough for us. Made our day super enjoyable and memorable. I would definitely recommend her tour and enlist her services in the future…

A personal experience talking to the wine makers who are passionate about what they do. We did the Pyrenees tour and the wineries we visited were small, which was great as they grew and handpicked the grapes to make the wines. It was a unique and wonderful day. Julie had a comfortable car and was well set up to accomodate our group. Julie was also flexible with our group requirements.

An outstanding day trip exploring the Pyrenees. We learnt so much about the region and its wines. Hats off to the Hops n Grapes crew for taking us down the roads less travelled allowing us to discover and taste boutique wines produced by local artisan wine makers, who in turn were so generous with their time, knowledge and those all-important tastings. A special shout out to our amazing hosts Julie and Kim who ensured a wonderful day was had.
