My wife and I just completed a wine tour with Phil in the Auckland area, he runs an outstanding service from start to finish, his local knowledge and understanding of wines is exceptional, We were first taken to a boutique winery and shown some of the behind the scenes aspects of wine making, 3 fabulous wineries were visited with a gourmet lunch provided, all tastings were accompanied with local cheeses, highly recommended.”
