What a great afternoon out with Frank on the wine tour ! He was warm and friendly and shared his knowledge of the area while introducing us to a variety of different winery experiences which was awesome. We were treated to a beautiful platter which was divine and made it such a memorable afternoon of tastings. We finished with a visit to a craft beer brewery.. brazier blazing as the sun went down. Thanks Frank...A very special time ! Anne-Marie and John

As a Hawkes Bay resident well embedded in the local vineyard culture, Frankly surprised and impressed me by taking our party to three beautiful boutique vineyards that I had not visited before. Beautiful venues, lovely wines, passionate wine makers accompanied by delicious food. With door to door pick-up and drop-off there wasn't much to think about but the wines. If you're a visitor to the region you'll love this tour.

Frank was on time and read the group well. There were five of us in our group plus three more who joined. Frank was informative and had a wealth of personal experience in the Hawkes Bay wine industry which gave credibility to tour. He had the tour party warmed up and created a memorable fun end to the day with some appropriate music in the van on the way home including taking a couple of laps around one of the roundabouts.
