We give tours that are for people who really – really – like wine.
For people who not only want to try wines, but to see where the grapes are grown, to see where they are crushed, to see it fermenting; to talk to the people who do all these things; to speak to the winemakers in their environment, surrounded by the the sights and smells that make up the mystique of the wine industry.
Little Tours - Big Value
Chook's Little Winery Tours offer you a unique wine experience, to discover some of the little known boutique wineries in McLaren Vale.
Sample wine straight from the barrel, stroll through the vineyards and chat with the owners and winemakers themselves.
Chook’s – also known as Chook’s Little Winery Tours was created by Chook and Kerry (Mrs Chook) for the sole purpose of providing tours to one of the best wine producing areas in Australia.
Both Chook and Kerry have a love of the Southern Vales and all the good things it offers, in fact, after living in the area for some time they were having so much fun they thought they would share it.
Chook’s Little Winery Tours is a small family company, and yes, there really is a Chook – he will arrange a great tour for you.
Besides being a local, Chook has travelled most parts of Australia during his years involved with the Variety Club Bashes. If you are a visitor, he’s probably been to your town or city.
So no matter where you are from, you will find a Chook’s tour something special.

Chook Chook Chooky!
Amazing. Chook McCoy was so accommodating. We had 10 on the bus, and by the end of the day there were some very merry folk.
I would recommend Chooks to anyone wanting a great day!

Best Of The Best!
Their expertise, knowledge and professionalism is only surpassed by their reputation and relationship with the local wineries, cellar doors and restaurants. This is what makes them so special. You don’t just wine taste - you get a wine experience that no one else offers as a result of Chook’s exceptional relationships and his ability and willingness to share that with his customers.
Chook, Kerry and the whole team are superb - superb wine guides, exceptional McLaren Vale ambassadors and just plain old great fun - they are the best of the best!
Thank you for yet another amazing time in the McLaren Vale.
As always - you made our holiday something special. We can’t wait to see you again next year!

A Good Thing
We visited McLaren Vale for the third time during the Easter Break and just when we thought he had raised the Bar to the highest after our last visit, Chook has happily proved us wrong.
I can make no higher recommendation than to say that if you do not see McLaren Vale Wine Country with Chooks Little Winery Tours you have not seen McLaren Vale.
An amazing wine tasting experience like no other!
A highly recommended boutique wine tour, we had Kerry as our driver and met Chook for lunch, such a lovely couple who are both well known and loved by the local wineries.
We visited some small off the beaten track wineries, Kerry took on board our tastes and matched them perfectly.
We went back to one of the wineries the following day and they passed comment how well respected Chook and Kerry are in the region, due to the fact they care and enjoy the area as much as the wine makers do.
A highly recommended tour!!

WHAT A TOUR!
Chook was needed elsewhere so we were guided by Mrs Chook and, by reading previous reviews, she was as knowledgeable and charismatic as Chook.
After a few questions Mrs Chook suggested an itinerary and off we went. What a day! We arrived in SA just in time for picking. Due to Chook’s genuinely great relationship with the vineyard owners we were treated to a day to remember.
Thank you Chook
We wanted to go to lunch at Darry's Verandah Restaurant. Booked a table and asked the helpful lady if we could walk. Her advice was a resounding NO!!!! So I said I'd book a cab. Jo then recommended Chook as an alternative. So glad I listened to her. We were picked up on the dot, and very safely delivered to Darry's. At the appointed hour, our driver returned to pick us up and take us home.
The round trip from the Caravan Park to Darry's and return, was $30.00. Well worth every cent. A comfortable vehicle, safe drivers.
Chook, I highly recommend your service. Thank you for making a wonderful day made even more wonderful.
