My parents are over for a visit from Germany and what better way to show them the beautiful southwest and all that it has to offer than with a Wine Tour. We choose to go with Margaret River Pick Me Up so we could plan out our day by ourselves.
Mattu who owns MR Pick Me Up, picked us up from my home in Cowaramup and greeted us with a big smile. The car comfortably sits up to 7 guest and it doesn’t matter if you have 2 – 4 or 7 guests he always charges the same price. For a full day tour he charges $ 350 and can pick you up from where ever you want to for whatever length of time.
My friend from Germany was over for a visit as well so we of course had to show her the big and famous ones first. The first stop was Vasse Felix which is one of the oldest wineries and has a fabulous restaurant. Of course we tasted all the wines as well. Second stop which is right next to Vasse Felix was Cullen Wines. Lucky for us they had just started vintage so we were able to try some of the freshly picked Chardonnay grapes.
Next two wineries that we had to conquer were Fraser Gallop and Woodlands. I haven’t been to either of those wineries so it was a first for me as well. For a Tuesday Woodlands was really busy but the lovely lady in the Cellar door was absolutely fantastic and took her time with us. I think I have found my new favourite Chardonnay. Fraser Gallop recently opened their new cellar door and it is a fantastic little place with delicious wines.
By the time we had been to all four wineries we were starving and I had made a booking at Rustico – Hay Shed Hill. We went for the 6 course degustation with matching wines which took us about 3 hours. The food was to die for and we were still talking about it 3 days later.
Thank you Mattu for a fabulous day out. I highly recommend MR Pick Me Up for anyone who wants to go on a private tour through the Margaret River Region.
You can also book a 3 night getaway for up to 4 guests at Amalfi Resort including a full day tour with MR Pick Me Up.
