There has been much conjecture and emotion over this issue. The Hunter has finally introduced TASTING FEES at all/most places usually 5.00pp-10.00pp . Some of the bigger places offer specific tastings such as Museum tasting or premium tasting etc 15.00pp up to 25.00pp depending upon which tasting you select TOUR OPERATORS have been put in the middle of this argument as it seems the public have always assumed that the fee you pay the TOUR OPERATOR is to drink other peoples wines! It has never been the case at all we DID NOT charge you to drink other peoples wines!!!! Wines are not ours and NEVER have been.
The TOUR Operator fees Are for the TOUR! The 8-9 hours you have the vehicle /the seat on bus the driver/the petrol/ the organisation of the tour /the knowledge /intimate knowledge on wines/places etc NEVER were you ever paying US to drink their wine!! UNTIL NOW HOWEVER; We are being hit with tasting fees as we do our job which is to book up an itinerary for you( A professional TOUR OPERATORS JOB !) We are being charged fees; EVERY TIME we ring up to book especially on line this can be 350.00 before you get in the vehicle HENCE we have had to alter prices to cover this WE are NOT and never have been on any retainers or commissions from the cellar doors for us to take you to particular places!
I hope this has cleared up some misconceptions that have been around lately
