Grape Escapes Canberra

A perfect day out for lovers of wine

Grape Escapes Canberra winery tours are personal, tailored, luxury wine tours. We believe your tour experience is about you and your taste in wine, and so we don’t offer  pre-packaged tours nor mix groups.

Our luxury wine tours will take you to wineries in the Murrumbateman or the Lake George areas.

What’s included in a Grape Escapes Canberra Wine Tour?

To experience the superb Canberra wine region and to sample some excellent wines at the fabulous vineyards our wine tours are for a minimum of four and a half hours (half day). Of course, you can enjoy a longer tour if you wish – anything from a half day to 8 hours or so. You will be chauffeured to and from your home or hotel to each local winery. Each winery’s tasting experience differs – you’ll get to taste a range of wines, learn about the vineyard and get to purchase your favourites.

When you book your tour, you’re booking with chauffeur Rodney, who has an in-depth knowledge of the Canberra wine region and the growers and vineyards in Murrumbateman, Lake George and surrounds.

What about lunch?

Lunch and other food options are offered by Cellar Doors, or at co-located restaurants. You can choose where you’d like to have lunch during your wine tour. We can discuss what is best for your group on booking confirmation. Tasting fees that may be charged by Cellar Doors, lunch and charcuterie / cheese plates are your expense.  More pricing information

Rodney is a great tour guide. Knowledgeable about the region. Rodney and Helen sorted out the itinerary. We just sat back and fully enjoyed the day. The Audi Q7 is immaculately presented and a great comfortable vehicle. A surprise lovely bottle of sparkling wine during the day as we drove around the country side. much fun.

We booked a day-long tour and it was excellent. Rodney and Helen's depth of knowledge, attention to detail, network of local contacts and passion for the ACT and surrounds wine region was clear, and made our experience richer and more rewarding. The tour was tailored to our needs, flexible and relaxed. Communication was fast, responsive and very thorough, with every detail considered and thought through - right up to the glass of champagne in the car in the morning. They made all our bookings and ensured the wineries were ready to go when we arrived. Could not recommend more highly. Five stars. Tom & Ying

I just wanted to let everyone know about the wonderful service and experience that we have just had with Helen and Rodney on our wineries tour yesterday in Canberra. We initially spoke with Helen, who did her upmost in planning a tour to meet our requirements and then we had the pleasure of Rodney’s company and vast knowledge as he guided us through the fantastic wineries in the area. Both Helen and Rodney are the ultimate professionals and go above and beyond (I won’t spoil the surprises) in providing a memorable experience. On time and exceeded our high expectations throughout the day. I can wholeheartedly recommend them as a boutique service provider for the discerning customer. Thanks again.

The 5 hour tour we just did this weekend was fantastic, and I cannot recommend Grape Escapes enough. Communication throughout the booking process was fantastic, with great suggestions on which wineries we should incorporate into the tour and even allowing a last minute inclusion of an extra guest, just days before the tour. Rodney was a fantastic driver, courteous and full of amusing facts to make the short hop out to the Murrembateman in their comfortable Audi fly by. Great way to spend a Saturday with a few friends and sample the delights of the local region in comfort - Thank you Rodney & Helen @ Grape Escapes!

After having only just moved to the region we decided to go on a winery tour to experience what Canberra had to offer. After searching online we found Grape Escapes Canberra. We decided to go with them, not only because of the fantastic value for money but also because of how personalised you could make it. We weren’t celebrating anything special, just coming together and creating new memories, but if we were, Rodney and Helen would have made it an extra special day. Rodney was punctual and knowledgeable throughout the whole day making sure we knew the history of the area. He was very relaxed and made sure that we got to each venue on time to ensure we could spend the maximum amount of time there. The four of us spent the whole day touring the region, visiting 6 different wineries, and came away not feeling like we had missed out on anything. Would recommend to anyone looking for an amazing day out!

My wife and I contacted Grape Escapes to organise a wine tour for our anniversary. Rodney was timely, professional, and has a fantastic knowledge of the area, which manifests itself in his kind, knowledgeable demeanour. Helen also picked 3 fantastic, high quality wineries, and a wonderful place to stop for lunch. Overall, an absolutely fantastic experience. We’re already looking at when we can plan our next Grape Escapes!

My 2 friends and I had such a great afternoon. We went to two great wineries as suggested by Rodney and Helen for lunch and tastings. So close to Canberra and we’d all recommend it to everyone to try while in the area. Thank you again!!
