Coonawarra Experiences
The overall experience we had was excellent. From the pick-up for our visit to Mayura Station for what can only be described as the most enjoyable experience, the food and wine was next level. The following day, our tour of the Coonawarra Wine Region along with lunch at Ottelia was excellent. Our host, Simon was a mine of information on the region and took the time to explain to us the history of the Coonawarra and its early inhabitants, all of which we both found of great interest. The accommodation provided by Simon & Kerry was superb as was the Wine and chocolates.

Best Day In The Coonawarra
Fabulous day enjoying local wineries. Kerry was a fabulous host. We lucked into a great group of people who helped make the day. Kerry is very knowledgeable and ensured we were looked after at all the wineries we visited. Would recommend to anyone looking to use them.

A Day That Delivered
Simon tailored this day trip perfectly, with a blend of well and less well known wine makers and a superb lunch. He knows the area well and provided insightful commentary on the history of the region and current winemakers. The tour was great value for money and I recommend it highly.

Coonawarra Experience Exceeds Expectations
Kerry and Simon were wonderful hosts when we took advantage of their ‘Immerse Yourself in Coonawarra Experience’ package. The apartment is great, with amazing towels, but the real treat is the knowledgeable, personalised experience of the wine tour. Simon’s passion and knowledge of the region’s history truly shines. We can’t recommend highly enough, and will be back!

One part of the new "5 regions of SA - seeing the best, with the best"
Simon and Kerry you guys know how awesome you are! From the very start, Simon went above and beyond for us. With back and forth emails for months regarding our tours he kept us in the loop the whole time and provided updated information regarding Covid etc. Simon helped to book us into our accommodation in Coonawarra and just made the whole process easy and stress free.

An amazing way to learn more about the Limestone Coast and enjoy the local experiences
My wife and I were looking at coming down to the Limestone coast for our honeymoon, which is how we discovered Coonawarra Experiences. Straight from the beginning, Simon & Kerry were exceptional with their communication via text, call and email back and forth organising an itinerary and accommodation for us during a difficult COVID-19 time. Once we had finalised our plans and arrived in Penola, we were chauffeured around to the various events we had booked including: a chefs table at Mayura Station, meeting winemakers, and staff taking us through their wineries and tastings, degustation lunches etc. It was an absolute pleasure to be looked after by Simon and Kerry. We have learnt so much about the history of the Limestone Coast and what goes into winemaking. We will definitely be back

Visit 4 wineries in the Coonawarra
Fantastic day being picked up from home in Millicent and driven to Coonawarra to do wine tasting and lunch at Brands Laira, wine tasting at Katnook Estate, visiting the Coonawarra Rail Siding finding out the history of it. Wine tasting at Patrick of Coonawarra and Whistle Post. Beautiful wines, fantastic company and very informative day. Would highly recommend it.

Excellent Depth of Knowledge
What a great day we had in Coonawarra with Kerry as our guide. Well informed, great choice of wineries and never felt rushed. Local knowledge is so important when there are so many wineries to choose from and the five we visited were all excellent - even managed to organise a Greek coffee at Raidis to finish the day. Highly recommend for a tour of Coonawarra.

Could not have been better!
My wife, adult son and I went on a fantastic wine tour with Simon last Saturday. Given the Covid restrictions and the showery weather, the tour was extremely flexible and Simon was cheerful, knowledgeable and willing to accommodate all our wishes. We were picked up at our accommodation and with a fun group of 7, we visited 5 wineries and tried the best wines that this outstanding wine region produces. A magnificent lunch (included in the price) taken at Chardonnay Lodge, was leisurely and gave us the chance to get to know our fellow travellers better. This tour is the ultimate way to visit a wine region, not having to navigate or running the risk of over imbibing when driving. Thoroughly recommended.

Wine, food and a fun host
We went on a half day winery tour. Our host was very knowledgeable, giving us the background of the Coonawarra and tailoring the tour to our taste. He also gave us space, but was there to help if needed. We didn't know much about wine and would have been overwhelmed if it hadn't been for him. Fantastic, highly recommend!!
