LUXURY WINE TOURS –
Wine Tours around Canberra’s Murrumbateman District Wine Region with leading Canberra chauffeur service Let’s Go Places Canberra are a fabulous Grape Escape!
The Canberra District Wine Region may be small but we punch well above our weight when it comes to fabulous wine. Revered wine critic James Halliday has rated 10 of our wineries 5 stars or more – the highest ranking he can give!
Canberra’s climate is cool by Australian standards, and so grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz as well as Riesling and Pinot Noir flourish.
Grapes were first planted in the area in the 1850s near Yass, but the District’s first commercial vineyards were planted in 1971. Today the region has over 40 wineries, approximately 150 vineyards, and a production of more than 2 million bottles of wine annually. Boutique wineries dot the region and many are producing hand-crafted and award winning wines.
So why not come along and find out for yourself just how good Canberra’s Murrumbateman District Wines are … let us take you on a luxury wine tour … you won’t be disappointed…!
LET OUR CANBERRA CHAUFFEUR SERVICE TAKE YOU ON A PERSONALISED LUXURY WINE TOUR
Grape Escapes, in conjunction with the very experienced chauffeurs of Let’s Go Places Canberra, offers a range of personalised chauffeured driven Canberra District wine tours for small numbers of clients (1-4 persons). Our bespoke and private luxury wine tours can be tailored to those who would like to enjoy a day sipping wines, sampling local produce and improving their wine knowledge. Typically, a full day starts with your chauffeur driver picking you up from home or hotel at around 09.30am. You’ll then visit at least five wineries (either suggested by us, or of your choosing) during the day and, of course, you’ll stop for a leisurely lunch. Your chauffeur service would then have you homeward bound by 4.30 – 5.00pm. A half day wine tour (four hours) is usually a later start with your chauffeur taking you first to a winery in the morning. Stop for lunch at your favoured restaurant, and then if you want to continue to another winery or two during the afternoon book us for longer escape.
WHAT IT COSTS TO NOT WORRY ABOUT DRIVING
Our Canberra chauffeured service for a full day Grape Escape luxury wine tour for up to four people is at a discounted price of $680.00, and includes each winery’s charges to the value of $5.00 per person for tastings. A half day (four hours) luxury wine tour is $380.00, and additional hours are at $90.00 per hour. Lunch and/or epicurean plates are additional costs and are to be paid by you at the winery.
