I am interested, depending upon the logistics and timing. Saturday would probably suit me better. Has any consideration been given to a shared cost mini bus with a designated (non-drinker?) driver to minimise the number of cars and drivers, leaving from a central point. Maybe two wineries then lunch at a third would work, without as much hurry.

We're going on a wine tour this Saturday around the area, with Canberra Wine Tours. They're picking us up from home and dropping us off at the end. I'll do a quick review on Monday, they might be an option for transport.

Saturday works best for us, probably suggest 2-3 wineries, including where the lunch is held. Malluka do tastings by appointment, and are a bit different. Long Rail Gully and Gallaghers maybe?

It would need to be a Saturday for us. I'll still leave us as a maybe as our weekends are pretty full for the next month and a bit.

Always interested in wine tours. Doesn’t matter Friday or Saturday as long as I’m in Australia and we do wine tour, can’t justify flying to Canberra just for lunch.

I'm a non-drinker so I might give this a pass, in any case pretty busy the next few weeks with work travel and personal commitments. My less-teetotal friends say very good things about our local wineries though!

Saturday is winning the poll by quite a margin and this looks like a good day for a few posters up thread, so I think we might have a date to work with.

Several of us may be looking for a designated driver, depending upon final arrangements, so you sound like you could fill the role and still enjoy the day and the company !!

Not sure what dates you are looking at, but be aware that the CBR Food and Wine Expo is on 09-11 Feb at the Nat Convention Centre. I don’t know if the local wineries may be affected by that. But may be worth checking with them.
