We had such an amazing time on this tour! It absolutely exceeded our expectations. Our tour guide was patient, informative, and answered all our questions. The charcuterie board that accompanied the wine tasting was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much!

Really great experience. So informative, informal but a real elevated experience. We even had a resident kitten just on our tour. Highly recommend and the nibbles we’re gorgeous too.
