How Did Tour de Vines Start?

Tour de Vines Founder Damian CeriniThe Tour de Vines story is unique in that our cycling tours weren’t developed with a business in mind.  That might sound unusual, but our founder Damian Cerini started running cycling tours in North East Victoria in the early 2000’s on the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail as a hobby for friends to enjoy a weekend away together.   Those friends told their friends what a great getaway it was, and the emails and calls kept coming, requesting another cycling tour.  And then another tour…and so on.  So it’s a pretty organic story if you like.

In 2012 Tour de Vines became a full time business and carried over 300 riders in North East Victoria alone in the first 12 months.  Tour de Vines has expanded rapidly and continues to do so, now carrying over 1,000 guests each year and offering cycling tours across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, France & Italy, with further plans for cycling tours in Croatia, America and South America, South Africa and many other amazing places.  Where in the world would you like to travel? We’d love to know.

We have recently been awarded Certificates of Excellence from Trip Advisor in 2015, 2016 & 2017, 2018 & 2019 and are a Hall of Fame inductee, due to great reviews from our guests, which we are very, very proud of.
