The entire evening was delightful! 😁 Transport with Sabrina was seamless and she made us all very comfortable! Paulo was our excellent wine guide, he attended to our table in a timely but not rushed manner. He educated us about the various wines and served our food. Bruno (dog) decided that he would hang out under the table and keep us company. It was a FABULOUS experience for three couples who came together as strangers from different countries and left as Friends.

We arrived at the vineyard 20 mins after being picked up at our hotel. The food was very good. There were cold meats, cheese, sundried tomtoes, olives, garlic bread and pasta. We had a brief explanation of the 6 wines, they were then left on the table for us to enjoy. Finally we had a sweet wine served with biscuits. Again the bottle was left on the table for us to enjoy. Overall a great afternoon on a rainy day.

What a fabulous excursion we were collected and taken back to our hotel by a very friendly guide The food was absolutely beautiful and the wine was excellent We were well looked after from start to finish the location was fantastic and we would definitely return
