Hi Bradley,
I just wanted to thank you again for such a great day. It was the best tour we have ever been on and you took us to vineyards we would never have found. Your extensive knowledge, personal touch and humour was really appreciated. The poetry is inspiring, I’ve been reading it to the kids.
We have told our friends to look you up whenever they are in the Hunter.
Best regards
Pandy & Margaret

Hi Bradley,
My friend AnnaLisa and I wanted to follow up and thank you for the wonderful tour you provided on the 17th of February. We had the most wonderful time!
I also wanted to see if it would be possible to get a copy of the picture that you took during our first wine tasting. I know it has been a little hopefully you can retrieve it from the archives! We are just now collecting and uploading all of our pictures and we would love a copy of the one that you took.
Thanks again, Bradley. I hope the Hunter Valley is continuing to treat you well.
Kind Regards,

Thank you again Bradley for a great day out on Boxing Day. George and I loved the whole day. We really enjoyed your company and that of the others on the tour, and there was the bonus of learning new things about the Hunter Valley and wine making. You made it a top day for us.

Hello Bradley,
Many thanks for a most enjoyable tour on Saturday. All three of us really enjoyed it, and we appreciated your calm patience. Christine and May bought up the wine stock of the Hunter!
Thank you also for the lovely poetry book, with inscription. I read it to May and Christine on the way home and we enjoyed it very much.
I hope you enjoyed a relaxing and peaceful Sunday, and we all look forward to taking another tour with you in the future.


Hi Bradley, Forgive me for the direct email; I went on a wine tour with you a few years back and still had your email on file. The tour was fantastic and I was wondering if you are still servicing the hunter for wine tours?
There is approximately 10-14 people and we are looking to book for Saturday 25th August if you have availability?


Hello Bradley, A quick email to say a big thank you from the Club for a wonderful day yesterday, enjoyed by all. At Audrey Wilkinsons, after the tasting, we bought more than a dozen bottles of wine. The few bottles not consumed at lunch (unusual for our group) were given out as lucky door prizes on the bus. Lindemans was excellent and a lot of the group made purchases. Tempus Two was the grand finale with another magnificent view and shops to browse, which made them happy.
We were blessed with the warm, sunny day.


Hi Bradley, Just wanted to let you know that we all had a fabulous time on Sunday!! Everything went so smoothly and we thoroughly enjoyed all the wineries we visited. Plenty of maxed out credit cards that's for sure!!
Fond regards,


Hello Bradley, Just wanted to thank you for a wonderful half day tour (which lasted a good 6 hours!) a couple of weekends ago (just got home to the UK an hour ago!). You never know for sure what to expect with an internet booking, but everything was perfect, your transport, your choice of cellar doors and of course you and your knowledge.
Thanks again for a great day.
Phil & Janet Smith


Hi Bradley, Thanks for everything on Saturday, everyone had a wonderful time and were very impressed by the tour. We had a fantastic day. Thanks again


Good Morning Bradley, I would like to book for 2 people  please if you have room available. I have been on the Vine link with you twice before in the last few years and have enjoyed myself so much. It would be great to do it again. Regards


Hi Brad, You were our amazing tour guide when I came with a group in February for my 40th ! I am now booking a work conference and wondered if you would be available to take us. There would be 17 of us and we would like a half day wine tour on Wednesday. Could you please put a quote together for us ? Thanks so much.
Simone Ruskin


G’Day Bradley
David Montgomery here (you know, the only Montgomery you have ever met). Karen and I would like to thank you once again for the great day we had in the vineyards. Your knowledge of the area and the right places to go and visit was outstanding. But the best part of all was the personal side of the day where we talked all day about the way things used to be. Reminiscing about the old days was brilliant and Karen is still amazed at your memories. By the way, I have read all your poems and I thought they were inspiring. Once again, thank you for turning a great wine tour into a brilliant wine tour.
David and Karen Montgomery


Hi there Brad! Not making a booking, regretfully, though would just like to send you a thankyou note on behalf of Danielle and myself for our marvellous tour last week! I have to say, for me personally, it was the more memorable of the two tours we had that week, and those Tyrrell wines.. above all were amazing! Thanks very much for the personal touch!


 Myself and some girlfriends had a fabulous tour with you a couple of years ago, you are the best tour guide! Now we are sending my parents up there for their 60th b'day and would love for them to have a tour with you. Please let me know if this is possible. Thanks,


Hi Bradley, Thanks again for a wonderful tour on Saturday. Our group really enjoyed it. All the wineries were great, particularly First Creek and Vinden Estate. Thanks so much for dropping off the wine I left on the bus at the restaurant for me yesterday. I really appreciate it. It will be most enjoyed when I get around to drinking it! I will definitely be recommending your tour to anyone I know who is planning a trip to the Hunter.
Kind regards


Hi Bradley, It was a pleasure meeting you last week. Thanks so much for the hospitality and for planning such a great day for the group. We had a blast! Thanks again,


Hi Brad - Just wanted to say thanks again for an absolutely wonderful day. Robyn (Peanut) and Leah (Star) are still raving about it. I can assure you that there will be some people from Qld coming your way for tours in the future. Was great to catch up and I still think Hunter Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Hope to see you again soon. Love,


Hi Bradley - Just wanted to say thank you very much for booking us on the Sunday tour, we had a fab day and Warwick was most amusing!! We really enjoyed the day and my husband who is not really a wine drinker really enjoyed himself. So thanks to both yourself and Warwick.
We'll definately recommend your tours. Regards
Janice & Andrew


Bradley! - Just wanted to thank you so much for your professionalism and making our day run so smoothly!  We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we'll be sure to direct any other Canadian (or Aussies) your way.... BTW we made it to McLeish the day after and were very impressed. Should have taken your advice. Until Next time


Hi Bradley - Thanks for a fantastic weekend - your choice of wineries and other stops were excellent! Everyone had a really great time. Thanks


Hi Brad - I just wanted to thank you for the tour on 29th May. We had a fantastic time and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves. You really made the weekend complete. Thanks Again


Bradley, Just wanted to say a very sincere 'thank you' for our wonderful day on January 8. John and I had a fabulous, interesting and relaxing day. We really enjoyed the lunch, and came home with some lovely wines! It was a pleasure to spend the day with you, and we thank you for being such a gracious host. We hope to see you again next time :) Regards,
Ann Russell


Hi Bradley ... Thank you for a loverly day.
We all had a really good time, i hope we were well behaved enough! Thanks for everything


Thank you once again for a really spectacular time! Although our time was limited, we appreciated that you took us to the best places because we do love "good" wines. We are looking forward to sitting down and making up our order. My in-laws are so curious about this area that the next time they visit (in December) we want to send them to you for a visit. I will keep you posted and in the meantime expect a call from Louna (Jens' PA) regarding his team meeting at Pepper Tree. All the best to you!


Just a quick note to thankyou for the wonderful tour you took us on last Saturday (17/11/07). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and having not been to the Hunter for 18 years it was a pleasure to be taken round to such a variety of wineries, and to learn so much.  We were very impressed with the different wineries you took us to, all unique and offering something "special".  We would never have found these by ourselves.  Also the "quick" lunch we had was the best value and did not waste valuable time. Thank you for your good humour, and professionalism.
Peter and Carmel Watson.


Sincere thanks for all your hospitality on Saturday. We had a ripper of a day. You did a marvelous job and were a veritable font of information to us. Your endurance and patience is a matter of great wonder and admiration to me, and Annette and I would like to congratulate you. It was and will remain a truly memorable day which we both shall cherish.
Thank you, Brad. Adrian


Dear Brad...Just a note to thank you very much for the hospitality and tour last Saturday..We all enjoyed it and especially Bev as she is now an expert on Hunter Valley wines, cheeses and chocolates! Thanks again for a great day........... Best Wishes.....
The other Bradley!


Hi Bradley,
I wanted to say thankyou once again for a great tour and for the
restaurant drop off and pick up. It was extremely well organised. Maggie and Roger asked me to thank you from them again aswell. They really enjoyed it.


Hey Bradley, We were so excited to see us on your website. Glad to have your details with us here in England. We still remember our trip with you and understand that it was especially good thanks to you and your vineyard friends/contacts. We visited a couple of vineyards the next morning and didn't get that special attention at all. Much cooler reception! So thanks thanks and thanks again for making that trip so memorable. We tell folks all the time that it was one of the big highlights of our Oz tour. We will be back again sometime NOT in the Oz winter so look out for us. We have been converted from strictly white wine drinkers to Australian shiraz by the way and all thanks to you. Keep doin' wot you're doin'.Byeee


Hello Bradley, On behalf of our group, I would like to thank you for a fabulous day this past Saturday. We had such great fun on your tour and we definitely think that we got the best tour in all of the Hunter Valley. We are looking forward to next time. Regards,
Denise Dilfo


Dear Bradley, Thanks for a great day on Saturday! The boots of our cars were fuller and our vocabularies broadened when it comes to vino with the likes of sweaty saddle and velvety. See you next time we are in the hunter. Regards,
Jane and Matt


Dear Bradley, Thank you very much for sending the picture. I want to thank you as well for the fabulous tour we've had with you. You surprising us never seemed to stop :P It's been a great 1 1/2 days getting to know more about wine in general and those produced in the Hunter Valley in particular. Have a nice Day,


Bradley, Have just arrived back at work after a holiday. Would like to pass on my thanks for the great day we had with Warwick, he looked after us better than we all could have expected. Thanks again and we will pass on your details to our friends heading up that way. Cheers


Hi Bradley, I would like to say thanks on behave of my classmates for organizing the tour for us. They said the tour gave them an unique way to enjoy the wines and view there. Thank you for your efforts. Regards,


Hi Bradley Just a quick note to thank you for a fantastic tour last week. We had a great day and appreciated your knowledge and the rapport you had with the staff of all the fabulous wineries we visited. Thanks again
Marie & Scott


Top of the morning to you Bradley.
Wine Tour: Regarding the Kennedys, thank you for looking after them, they absolutely loved the experience (like there was any doubt they wouldn’t). They are going to put together a CD with some photographs of the trip – when I have the CD in hand I will forward some photos through to you via email, if that’s alright with you?
Until next time, keep well.


Re: Paul & Shelly Kennedy-Sharpe
I had dinner with them on their last night here in Sydney and they absolutely loved the hunter, and appreciated the attention provided by you. Paul being the Journeyman (I believe a name given to him by you) sang your praises all night, said you were extremely knowledgeable. All in all a great time was had by Paul and Shelly.
Thank you for all that effort it is much appreciated. Regards


You have outdone yourself, again!
Thanking you kindly for looking after Mr and Mrs Pellissier.
They loved you and your surrounds.
Thanks again.


Hi Bradley,
Thank you kindly for a great tour throughout the cellar doors on Sunday.
Rachelle and I are very appreciative. All the best.


Hi Bradley,
Thank you again for being such a hospitable and informative host on Saturday. Tom, Mike (the German), Christy and I had a thoroughly enjoyable time - we will be recommending you to our friends and family! Thanks again


Thank you again for organising the bus and also Jim. Jim was outstanding and contributed to our group having a wonderful and memorable day.
