Hunter Valley Wine Tour

Our tour guide Max went above and beyond to give my friends and I an amazing experience. From start to finish including the delicious picnic on the grass, lunch and all the tastings were wonderful. After visiting the MCGUIGAN Winery and hearing about my husband who passed away 4 years ago Max surprised me with a bottle of MCGUIGAN wine. He was born in Ireland and being a MCGUIGAN himself had always wanted to visit the winery. Thank you Max I will always remember your kindness and thoughtfulness.
