Mount Tamborine Wine Region






 

 

 




What a day out! I humbly consider myself to be a bit of an amateur foodie, attending all the new restaurants plus food and wine festivals around the country over many years. When a birthday outing was required for my partner, I was after a casual yet professional small group tour of a high standard yet value for money. After all, being local, we could have just visited the sites on our own- I wanted the day to be much more than a simple day trip.

Excellent

Mount Tamborine Wine Tasting Tours was the perfect choice! Leading up, Cheryl was prompt and forthcoming with answering all my questions and giving ample detail about inclusions and opportunities along the way. She was more than happy to accommodate my special requests in light of the birthday occasion. On the day, she turned up on time in a modern and luxurious company vehicle, making the journey between stops very pleasant. We had a wonderful day, and it was made all the more pleasant with her knowledge, advice and company along the way. Her manner was so comfortable she felt like one of the group, rather than a tour guide! All the owners and staff at each of the stops knew Cheryl and were expecting us, so it felt like we were being introduced to new friends, not on a paid tour.


I would not hesitate to recommend Mount Tamborine Wine Tasting Tours to anyone at all. Whether you're looking for a romantic outing, an educational experience, a special occasion or just to see our wonderful Hinterland highlights, this is honestly the tour for you!

The Best


Cheryl provided a wonderful day touring Mt Tamborine wine country for my partner and I and my parents. Class A all the way. She picked us up on time (actually she was early) in a very comfortable vehicle. Her selection of wineries was perfect as was her choice for lunch. Besides knowing the wineries and the people who run them, she also knew the flora and fauna.
She tracked our purchases so we did not have to worry about them. Prior to entering the winery she gave us a brief history of the site and what we could expect; upon entering each site she gave a brief to the winery people about us, so we did not have to tell the same story at each stop - very nice and it made it much more personalized. These are just a few of the little things that complimented her selection of sites that make this an "A" grade tour. Thanks again Cheryl. Visited Nov.2014 Bill R

Wonderful


What a great day out don't miss this one when staying on the Gold Coast, Mt Tambourine is just beautiful! Start off with the distillery tasting Schapps and Vodka then onto some beautiful wineries, lunch just long enough to still be coherent (try the Rose) then onto cheese tasting and beer sampling. Cheryl delivered us back to our door in Surfers with our goodies feeling so relaxed, what more could one ask.

Awesome

I had such a great time with Cheryl for the very first wine tasting in my life. Cheryl is very professional and friendly. She picked us on time and has been very informative throughout the trip.

Highly recommend and she will not let you know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great day and well worth the money!

Had a great day out with Cheryl! It was well worth the money spent and was a good way to see alot in one day. Would say if you can do it, go on a weekday as I could see how it could get busy. Enjoyed thoroughly by my mother and I.. Highly recommend!

Great Day Out

We had a very enjoyable day out with Cheryl. She went out of her way to look after us & couldn't do enough to ensure we had a great time. She is on very friendly terms with all the wineries and other businesses we visited.

The first stop was the Tamborine Mountain Distillery for tastings and photos. Then off to two local wineries for some very interesting wines. The region is producing some very excellent wines.

Lunch (& more tastings) was at Deli Vino before finishing up with local cheese and beer.

Cheryl is professional, courteous and friendly. Her commentary was informative and interesting and her vehicle was spotless. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anybody who would enjoy an intimate wine tour.

Such a fantastic day!

Cheryl picked us up right on time and we drove to Mr Tambourine. They started us off with a vodka shot and some delicious tastings at the distillery. 3 wine tastings later we were a tad drunk when we stopped for lunch (and we were all ever so happy). Everyone was so friendly and so knowledgeable with our many questions. Even though the 3 of us had different tastes in wines we each found something we loved at every place.

I would definitely recommend this trip to my friends and family and anyone who is considering a wine tour at the Gold Coast/Tambourine Mountain. So interesting and delicious, plus the scenery was just beautiful as we were blessed with great weather.Thank-you so much for a fantastic day Cheryl! Ashley C Brisbane October 2013

Cheryl has been a great host throughout

My boyfriend and I were welcomed by Cheryl warmly despite that we were late. Cheryl has been a great host throughout the day and despite that I got drunk (due to not having any breakfast, totally my fault) she continued to be nice to us and showed so much concern for me. I also lost my phone on that day and Cheryl assisted me in getting my phone back. I could not thank her enough, hence Im giving her top recommendation here. Jess Surfers Paradise October 2013

Cheryl is a fantastic tour guide!!!

My friend and I had fun during the tour and we had learned many new knowledge about wine tasting and about Gold Coast. The trip was so relax and enjoyable. Strongly recommended this trip to all of those who visit Gold Coast. The wine tasting tour will definitely be a "bonus" on top of sunny beaches and theme parks. =) HYEE YIN Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

 

The tour very personal and relaxed

Cheryl was early to pick us (a family of 4) from our hotel. And a couple (Murray & Julie) from New Zealand joined us which makes the tour very personal and relaxed. Cheryl asked about our wine preferences and we were delighted that we all shared similar likings except for my husband, haha... The drive to Mt Tamborine was great as Cheryl showed us the various places of interest and the beautiful scenery along the way. The tasting at the distillery was fantastic and we bought 2 bottles. We also had 4 wine tastings and we were happy to buy some of the delicious red and white wines. Cheryl was attentive and warm throughout the day, making sure that we tried the various wines and helping us to take group photos. We were glad that we went for this wine tasting tour as it's a must do when visiting Gold Coast and a relaxed break from the adrenaline rush of theme parks. Once again, thank you for the wonderful day, Cheryl. Catherine Lim Singapore 15-11-2013

Will recommend you to all our friends!

Hi Cheryl,

Thanks for a great tour today, Debbie and I had a good time and will recommend you to all our friends! The highlight of the tour for us was visiting Michael at the Liqueur Distillery and the cheese tasting at the Brewery.

We enjoyed visiting the Wineries too. We would be interested in the Cheese making workshop when it comes around and will keep our eyes open for any future dates.
All the best and thanks again.

Kind regards,

Congratulations on your friendly and professional tour

Many thanks for our fabulous day out. Did not realise that I could fit in so many activities, have so much fun in one day. Tour groups are not usually my thing but personalised smaller ones in our case, worked a treat Congratulations on your friendly and professional tour. I was thrilled with our lunch, food only exceeded by the fabulous views from the Tavern. I will be delighted to take my family on a return visit when next out from Hong Kong.

Lunch was perfect

Just like to touch base to let you know how much we enjoyed your informative tour of the Mt Tamborine wineries. We commented that your knowledge of the region and the wine styles enhanced the tour without being over the top, which allowed our group to enjoy each others' company. Lunch was perfect and was just what was required after wine tasting.

Once again, thanks for the personalised service and catering to our requirements.

Cheryl, our guide, was fantastic

Living in northern NSW, I had no idea that such an exciting destination was only 2hrs away! I can highly recommend the 'Tamborine Wine Tours' to anyone wanting to visit this area. Cheryl, our guide, was fantastic. Her knowledge and professionalism made it a wonderful experience for us country bumpkins. We'll definitely be back!.

We had a fun girls' day out

We had a fun girls' day out and wanted to thank Cheryl for organising such a great day. Cheryl even helped us with our precious cargo - "wine purchases". Can't wait to do it all again.

We were treated to the best of everything

This is our first visit to your country. What a spectacular & beautiful area. Only such a short drive from the Gold Coast beaches. We were treated to the best of everything. Cheryl was most generous with her time, allowing us too many attractions that weren't listed on the itinerary. We particularly loved the Verdelho.
