If you want to boost your knowledge about wine, have a fantastic day while you’re at it, and taste the goodness of the Margaret River Region, then Wine for Dudes is the tour for you! The name dude came about by the original owner of the company who called everyone (guys, girls, young and old) ...dude! Wine for Dudes take the intimidation and pomp out of tasting wine, making it more approachable to enjoy!

  • + Can you cater for Dietary Requirements?

    Yes... all the wineries and breweries that we dine at for lunch can cater for your dietary requirements. Please let us know when you make your booking of any dietary requirements that need to be catered for. Including, but not limited too: Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Nut Allergies (nuts are in same kitchen), Lactose Intolerant and Seafood Free etc.

  • + Can you drink alcohol on the bus?

    Unfortunately not! It is illegal to have open alcoholic beverages in any of our vehicles, regardless of if it is a private charter or not. You will however never be too far away from your next taste of goodness!

  • + Do the buses have Air Conditioning and Heating?

    Yes... the whole Wine for Dudes fleet has Air Conditioning and Heating - we will always make sure you are comfortable while you're inside the buses!

  • + Do we have to pay extra tastings fee?

    All tastings at wineries and gourmet food producers are included in your tour; unless you are on a Private Charter and request specific wineries that charge a fee. If you request wineries that charge a fee we will let you know in advance when we are aware.

    Breweries do not offer complimentary tastings, however all of our guests receive discounted tasting paddles at these places.

  • + Do you still operate if it’s raining?

    Definitely!! Wine for Dudes operate rain, hail or shine! In fact, if you’re here on holiday and it starts to rain, turn your holiday around, by grabbing a jacket and a scarf and getting out of your hotel room!! We can generally pull up very close to the cellar door entrances to let you out, and the rest of the time you’ll be in the comfort of our vehicles and the venues, and warming up with wine!!! J

    In the rare circumstance that we have to cancel a tour due to being unsafe to operate (ie: extreme winds, bushfires or flooding), we will advise you on the morning of the tour (or earlier if we are aware), and either transfer your booking to the next available day or refund you in full for your bookin

  • + Is there music on the bus?

    Yes... the whole Wine for Dudes fleet have the ability to play music. We have epic playlists, and love to showcase some of the awesome local talent around too. If you would like to play DJ while you're on tour, please feel free to bring any music device with an AUX cord connection. If the rest of the bus votes you off DJ duties, then it's back to our playlists, or another persons turn!

  • + What's the Dress Code?

    Smart casual is fine for all venues. Most wineries don’t allow fancy dress, so it is discouraged by our company. For special occasions such as a Hens Party, something minimal such as a sash for the bride-to-be will be allowed.

    Make sure you dress for the season, and wineries. Our temperatures range from single digits in winter, to mid-high 20’s in summer. Most wineries have red gravel driveways, so pretty suede heels during the wet winter months are not usually the best option; and make sure you lube up with sunscreen, and have plenty of water in summer!!

  • + Will you pick us up from our accommodation?

    Yes... Wine for Dudes offer a free door-to-door service from your residential address or accommodation throughout the Margaret River wine region, including:
