The Legend of Wine for Dudes
Wine for Dudes Wine Tours Margaret River have been cruising the vines of the spectacular Margaret River Wine Region since early 2003! Not just
for dudes... we love our dudettes too! Wine for Dudes offer a more relaxed experience in comparison to some of the more pretentious Margaret
River wine tour operators; with a goal to ensure our guests have loads of fun, visiting some of the best and most exclusive wineries, tasting
quality wine, while still learning loads about wine in general, and our stunning Margaret River Wine Region!
The Margaret River wine region is home to over 100 wineries, from boutique family owned and operated wineries, right through to wineries who dominate as world class wine producers. When you travel with Wine for Dudes you will often get the opportunity to meet the winemaker and their family, and discover some of the hidden gems in the Margaret River Wine Region!
Established in 2003, Wine for Dudes have made some fantastic contacts (and friends) in the local Margaret River wineries, breweries and food producers, meaning Wine for Dudes passengers get a more exclusive and unique wine tour experience, and often a better deal when it comes to purchasing some of the tasty goodies from the Cellar Doors and retail outlets.

The idea of Wine for Dudes wine tours initiated in Europe, when the previous owner was working in Italy. In Italy... wine is for everybody! Go down to a local restaurant around lunch time and you’ll see that it is booked out with tradesmen having a two course lunch and sloshing it down with wine – everyday! It is a beautiful way to live, yet it is something that often only business people enjoy on a Friday afternoon here in Australia.
At Wine for Dudes Wine Tours Margaret River, we believe wine should be simple, fun, approachable, and a part of everyday life! Having a good time with wine, rather than using it for status! It’s not just for special occasions, it should be incorporated into how we live. Basically speaking, Wine for Dudes endeavour to keep it honest. Wine for Dudes was created to break-down the intimidating barriers, often influenced by a higher society, that prevent people from really enjoying wine on a day-to-day basis.
Regardless of if you're a wine-buff or someone who sees wine as "wine comes from grapes, and grapes are healthy...right!" ...when you jump onboard a Wine for Dudes Wine Tour and journey through the spectacular Margaret River wine region, not only will you enjoy the relaxed and fun atmosphere, but you will also have a quality and informative experience that is catered to everyone!

As written by John O'Connor - Chief Dude of Wine for Dudes! What a time to wind down and reflect on the awesome experiences and people that made up the Gourmet Escape 2018! I didn’t want to attend the premier events this year; although they are awesome one-off experiences, I have attended a range of these functions in the past, so this year I opted to go for a few of the more down-to-earth events, and enjoy all the fun and frivolity that GE attracts. ..
