The very informative tour by Norma. We've been on many tours before... This was the best. Lots of history at this winery.

The wines were all very good. Really enjoyed the Creole pizza we purchased after. Absolutely delicious and not very spicy at all. We visited this winery several years before but only did tasting. Decided to purchase this voucher as we had really liked the wines.

The place was so charming and inviting. My sisters and I had a great time! The location was beautiful, it reminded us of our parent's Ranch and house where we grew up in Mexico.

Norma the tour facilitator was great! My gorup really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot from her. I'm excited to hopefully attend the Mardi Gras jazz party next year.
