Johan our tour guide is amazing!! First stop roblar,charming,beautiful,brian was a great stop Buttonwood not so much .I dont understand if you have over a hundred acres why is your wine tasting area so limited? That is weird to me.and the pours were very limited i literally had a sip of each so couldn't even decide if o like or not was really disappointed with that.i thought these vineyards want to make sales ..not so much.not even a pitch or second pour or explanation of wines .my feelings are they were bothered by us wine tour. Especially by our last stop i actually heard the bartender say to Johan she was not ready or wanting us .so Sunstone is not my fav .johann was the reason that tasting happened he took charge and made sure we got our tasting No menus,or seating .the chick just said sit down and ill get to you.johan got us our glasses and wine .then I asked bartender " i use that term bc in no way were we with a Somalia at any point at Sunstone " for a tasting

Man wurde auf 3 Weingüter gebracht wo man jeweils 5 Weine probieren durfte. Zum Mittagessen gab es Sandwiches die man am Tag vorher bestellen musste. Es wurde keine Besichtigung des Weinguts angeboten und auch sonst wenig über die Weinherstellung erzählt. Für den Preis hätte ich das erwartet. Daher nur ein befriedigend.
