New payment options for Highlands Food & Wine Tours.

In response to many of our guests asking if we could accept card payments on our bus we have finally got a system that allows this to happen.

It is somecard payments at Highlands Food and Wine Toursthing we have thought about for a while but we just had to find the system that fitted us.

The system we have decided to go with is called Square. It is very secure with the usual security systems that any other card payment system has and very easy to use.

Of course we do like getting cash, cash doesnt charge any transaction fees, but if paying by card is more convenient for you then we happy to be able to offer that option from now on.

Grape stomping in March

March is harvest time for the vineyards in the Southern Highlands and that means grapes need to crushed.

One of the best ways to crush grapes for red wine is by foot. Feet are gentle enough not to crush the grape seed which can put a bitter taste in the wine.

If you have ever though you would like to foot stomp grapes then this is your lucky chance.

All tours will be visit Eling Forest Winery where you will have a chance to stomp grapes while enjoying a glass of wine and nibbles. (except Sundays)

These tours on Saturdays are already booked up but we can still run a tour for groups of 6 to 14 on weekdays.

You can book you grape stomping tour here.

Make sure you wear or bring a pair of shorts that you are not worried about getting dirty (they are red wine grapes and if some of the juice splashes on them it may not wash out). A shirt that you are not fond of might be a good idea as well.

Come along and enjoy a day tasting great wine and take on the rare chance to stomp the grapes.
