Amazing tour what a great surprise! We had so much fun on the tour and loved all the wines so much we all signed up for the wine club! Can't recommend this tour enough, very special birthday event for my friends and I.

It's a lovely setting inside and outside. We walked around outside and inside of the wine barrel areas. Our wine and food was after the outside tour. Nice set up for us in a private dining room.

The older gentleman whom guided us on our tour and tasting was very knowledgeable and seems to really enjoy discussing the wines and winery.
