AN UNFORGETTABLE PRIVATE ENCOUNTER
Meet the winemakers, collectors and business people behind Australia's great wines. Imagine sitting down for an evening with the winemakers while you taste their limited release, back vintage and hard to get wines. They might even prepare a meal or cook a pizza for you.
Our guides include a Master of Wine, an Australian winemaker of the Year, an international wine trade negotiator, and leading wine industry advisors. You will engage with great Australian personalities and their families, learn about their own wines and the wines that excite them.
Australian wine as it should be experienced
In our Unique Encounter offering, we manage a full itinerary from the regions closest capital city airport and deliver a unique experience right up to your departing flight. If you choose a Platinum or Sublime encounter, we will organise an extraordinary private wine adventure from pick-up at your home anywhere in the world.
The privacy to enjoy
Our encounters are all about privacy and intimacy. We have unusual and secluded spaces such as museum cellars, private rooms and historic locations unavilable for tourists. We spend our time with winemakers and brewers at their winery sites, at restaurants and at historic locales.
You can encounter the regions, knowing we will provide what is most interesting to you. We also enjoy starting your day right, offering a sleep-in or going to places where you can shop, balloon, surf, ride or get personally pampered.
4+ days of encountering Australian wine
Our Unique Encounters are typically four days and three nights and will cost from $2,500 per day for all expenses excluding air travel. Platinum and Sublime encounters offer a much deeper experience, starting from $5,000 per day and include all travel. We also offer single-day custom encounters to your requirements.
We are able to work from single day trips to extended itineries that can be months long, if you wish to deepen your experience and include other parts of Australia. For longer experiences we will take a day or more away from wine regions to refresh palates and include other extraordinary activities that interest you.
A little bit of education - if you want it
If you are wanting education along the way, we will engage a leading wine sensory specialist to provide you with insight into wine flavours and aromas.
