Other important stuff

Tour guests (who are tasting wine/beer) must be 18+ years of age and should not drink alcohol 8 hours prior to tour. Tour drivers and Cellar Door staff are RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) certified and keep a constant eye out for the safety and wellbeing of all passengers at all times. Passengers that endanger or disrupt this priority, will be warned and if necessary immediately removed from the tour. The wineries we visit are small boutique family run wineries where we are their guests and need to respect them by behaving accordingly. A good reputation among Cellar Doors for a safe and enjoyable experience, is a top priority for Wine for Dudes. Consuming alcohol is not premitted on or beside vehicles.

The Wine for Dudes fleet are 'TC' licenced vehicles. Just like any other public transport vehicle, heavy fines apply for drinking on the bus, to both passengers and drivers, on or beside the bus! All wineries and breweries have a 'Producer Only License' which means that only alcohol that can be consumed on the premises has to be made from that premises. Strict new RSA laws combined with public liability issues, mean that alcohol can only be consumed in specific designated areas at each premises. Although every effort will be made to include individual requests (ie: requests to stop at a specific wineries or breweries), in some cases not all requests can be catered for. We will do our best though! :)

REQUIREMENTS: Casual tidy dress, a positive attitude, and a clear head. It is also recommended to bring a bottle of WATER especially in the hot Summer months. Please let us know any dietary requirements - including any pregnant ladies - so that we can cater for you accordingly.

NB: Kids can come on for 50% of the ticket price.
