Everyone Should Do This Trip When Visiting Russell!
Dec 2019
I was every fortunate to take my partner, 91 year old mum and my sister, visiting from the UK, on a stunning Sunday afternoon wine tour in the Rogue Pony purple Jeep!
Tui was outstanding - a wonderful host who interacted with us easily and made us all feel very comfortable. The jeep was perfect for taking mum from one place to the other and we all had the most fabulous time! Paroa Bay Wines was a great surprise, because even though my partner and I are locals we had not had the opportunity to visit this winery. Well, going there is a recommendation in itself! Then we went to Omate Estate winery - great food, wine and views!
The whole trip is one every one of us will not forget and I highly recommend anyone wanting to go on tour to the wineries to do this with Tui - Rogue Pony Tours!
Thank you to Rogue Pony - we all just had the best time!

Tui had the most delightful time meeting you and your family. Great company, good food and she knows the wine was good (having researched before the day). She enjoyed it so much both of us had to go back the next day for lunch together!

Thank you Vivian (and Vern), suiting the pace to your energy levels on the day is important to make things as enjoyable as possible. I wonder, how many cases of wine has Vern ordered for delivery yet? Regards, Mark.
