We had a wonderful wine tasting day with Grapeline Tours, with Chris at the wheel . The van was comfortable and we ran on schedule. We had time to relax at each of the 3 stops and as a bonus stopped at a fruit stand. Chris dropped us directly at our campsite with all of our winery purchases. She even doubled back an hour later with our flat of forgotten strawberries, that’s great customer service. She has a knack for capturing a great picture, so take advantage of her keen eye to frame a shot. Her singalong playlist was fantastic. We got a quick tour and local color of 2 cute towns, Solvang and Ballard. All in all a great day.
