Corona virus (COVID -19) Update for Vintage Connections operations as at 13/09/21. Our covid safe plan and QR code have been updated as per Government requirement.

Will I need to be Vaccinated?

This decision looks increasingly likely to be out of our hands as the federal and state road map out of lockdown and living in our ‘modern Covid 19 reality’ is strongly indicating that the kinds of activities involved in a wine tour will be un-available for people who are not vaccinated. This information is likely to be incorporated into the compulsory QR code sign in system. With circuit breaker ‘on the spot LGA lockdowns’ also being a part of the plan, photo ID with post code of residence will no doubt also play a role. We have adjusted our refund policy regarding tour booking deposits accordingly. We will update our general policy and terms and conditions as soon as the Government makes it’s requirements official.
