Like catching up with an old friend

Nicole made our wine and history tour of Orange interesting. We had been on tours before that had made us feel not so special but with Nicole we had felt like we were catching up with an old friend. The wineries were lovely that she had arranged for us to visit. We felt well looked after by both Wineries. Thoroughly enjoyed the history tour of Orange very informative. We highly recommend anyone joining a tour with Country Food Trails.

Warm Hospitality

I asked if Nicole could arrange a wineries tour for our group of 8. I was happy to leave it to her, as it was evident that she is knowledgeable and keen to create a great experience for all! We visited 3 smaller, boutique wineries (Orange Mountain Wines, Strawhouse Wines and Dindima) and really enjoyed the warm hospitality we received at each. We met marvellous, dedicated people, and the tastings were relaxed and very congenial. We felt no pressure to purchase at any place, but did buy up as the wines were so very good!!  I will recommend her tours to all my friends. I am keen to try her other tours as soon as I can.
