Scenic Rim Wine Exploration
This full day wine immersion will introduce you to some of the finest estates in the Scenic Rim Wine Country. It's been said that the best wine grows on the most scenic landscapes and that certainly proves true here.

Our day in wine country begins with a scenic drive to Tamborine Mountain where you will have a nice view of the valley below. From there, you will visit three local wineries, each showcasing the best wine Australia has to offer, and one local distillery.

Lushes delight as 6-10 tastings are included at each winery and your guide will provide an explanation of each. Don't worry, we'll be sure to provide snacks in the van between stops! A leisurely two course lunch is also included and will also provide the perfect opportunity for your guide to teach you a thing or two about Australian wine.

After a full day in wine country, we're pretty sure you'll be extra chatty with your new friends on the way back to your cruise ship.
