The Winter Wine Wonderland Tour

Mar 19, 2018
In recent years, there's been an explosion of local craft beer, wine and cider production in our region. You can literally find a delicious local drink around every corner. And with the growth of this industry, operators and guides have been creating new experiences around these delicious flavours, offering new ways of getting a taste for the area. One such adventure is the Winter Wine Wonderland experience brought to you by The Beer Bus.

That's right... your region may have epic local transit, but our region has a bus named after beer! You see with all these great vineyards, cideries and breweries to visit, it became clear that someone else needed to do the driving. Enter Paul and Emily from The Beer Bus. They quickly started working with local partners to offer a variety of tours around the region, allowing you to sample to your heart's content, while they're behind the wheel.

On this sunny Monday, we took part in the WInter Wine Wonderland experience. Read on for an overview of what you'll experience on the tour then click this link to book your winter adventure right away.
