    Thanks for our day trip in Gippsland and the wineries the other day. It was spaced out well with all three of the wineries having a different “feel” about them. The lunch was delicious also and I fell in love with the guy who ran the show there. Many thanks and look fwd to future mid week escapes.

    Wonderful day with our guide Gianni touring the area and visiting three great wineries. Interesting talks on wine making, an exceptional lunch at Hoggets. Would recommend as a great introduction to the area.

    We had a great day out with Gianni & Mario in West Gippsland. Wine tasting was a great experience & we have since gone back there again. Hogget Kitchen was a real experience plus great food. We would love to do a trip with them to Italy when we are able to travel again.
