Cork ‘n Fork Tours
Hen’s Day Out
Brides to Be and Bridesmaids Celebrate in Australia with a Wine Tour!
Brides to be and Bridesmaids look no further as this page is for you. Are you going to be married soon and the last task you need to do is organise a day out or a “Hen’s Day”! This is why Cork ‘n Fork Tours have now created this page just for you to take the worry out of organising this event.
We have been doing wine tours now for seventeen years and in this time have done several hundred Hen’s Days. Just like weddings all very different but in our experience the best mix seems to be to pick you and your close friends and family from usually the Bride to be’s address (we do not go north of the Brisbane CBD) and the latest time for pick up is 10am! We then drive you all out to visit 3 very different wineries, vineyards or cellar doors of the Gold Coast Hinterland wineries.
We give cheese and crackers on board in between places and any games to be played are not a problem on the bus on the way out or the way back, please also bring your favourite CD to be played on route if you wish, then usually at the last stop we all enjoy a delicious 2 course menu lunch of mains, dessert tea and coffee.
We then take you all back to your pick up destination to party on………
All of this at a very low cost of $140 per person, we need a minimum of 6 people and the maximum depends on you, we can fit up to 13 in our small bus then from 14 up to 22 in the larger bus.
Now most people whether it be the Brides to be or their best friend or chief Bridesmaid who are given the task of organising this event usually do a fantastic job, we are just here to help you in your plans.
We do suggest that when invitations are sent out that you state clearly if you want to come along your RSVP with money must be to me (the organiser) no later than__________and here you put a date at least 2 weeks from when your deadline is to letting us know.
This way you have no hassels in gathering payment from everyone.
Also please note on invitations-NO STILETTO HEELS PLEASE!
Let me explain, we have purchased a brand new bus and the matting is quite easily punctured with stiletto heels, also more recently girls have a few tipples and fall off their shoes! Girls just wear sensible shoes when wine touring.
To book with us you simply just need to first make contact with us to see if the pending date is available, then to secure this date we need a deposit for 2 people which is $280. Then the final numbers and balance of money needs to be with us no later than the week prior to the tour date.
SIMPLE! We accept all credit cards over the phone or you can direct deposit via internet banking.
Two things, drinks other than wine tasting fees are not included in the price but all wineries will do a tab for the group or pay for drinks individually, and since the 1st July 2008 the Qld Department of Transport have made it illegal to have alcohol on the buses so no alcohol on board.
Also I need to say, that this is not a grog up day. Your group will be shown how to taste wine correctly, to find out the different types of wine, and what your pallets are like, this will all be explained on the day. The day is about some education and some fun all to do with wine.
Now what are you waiting for? Get moving! You or your best friend or sister is getting married, time to celebrate!
As time goes on check back on this page as I will be having Hen’s Days videos and game suggestions and little suggestions for keepsakes for that special person, the Bride-To-Be!
Please note all passengers must be 18 years or older to travel on our tours!
