“The day we had with Epicurean was one of the very best we had while visiting Melbourne. It was relaxing from the minute we were picked up. We were able to spend a lots of time at a few wineries, hearing stories and tasting fabulous food from the region. The wine was exceptional. Highly recommend.”
