Cowra's famous Wine and Forage tours are making their return for spring 2019.

The tours offer visitors the chance to enjoy the fine food and wine of the Cowra and Canowindra region whilst meeting the makers at the farm gate and cellar doors.

Cowra Tourism Manager, Belinda Virgo, said she was thrilled the tours would be returning in 2019.

"We enjoyed plenty of success last Spring, with dozens of visitors and locals enjoying some of the very best produce that the Cowra region has to offer," she said.

"The tours are the perfect way for visitors to explore, enjoy our stunning springtime landscapes, meet the local producers, and of course, enjoy the fine food and wine of our region along the way.

"A little known fact about the Cowra Wine Region is the high proportion of organic wines it produces. With 75% of wine brands produced now being certified organic, our tours have developed to promote this incredible point of difference for our wine region, with visits to two organic cellar doors and an organic vineyard included in the itinerary," she said.

Mrs Virgo said Cowra Tourism were pleased to announce a collaboration with local organic producers; Rosnay Organic, Wallington Wines and Antonio's Wines for the tours this season.

The 2019 Cowra Wine and Forage Tours will run from Saturday, September 14 and will be available throughout the Spring season.

Departing from the Cowra Visitor Information Centre, the half day tours include wine tastings, fig and olive tastings and a seasonal lunch.

Tickets are $80 per person and spaces are limited, to secure your seat contact the Cowra Visitor Information Centre on 6342 4333 or book online via www.visitcowra.com.au/wineandforage.
