Value on this tour is extremely poor. We have done wine tastings before and have never felt like we were being rationed on the amount of wine as we did in this case. The sommelier was so enthused while she was talking about champagne she forgot to tell us which cheese to try. By the time she remembered, some people were out of wine, she didn't offer any more so that we could have the experience we had paid for. For the tour price paid for one person, a whole bottle of each of the wines could have been purchased from the tour operator. We probably received 5 one ounce pours. There were 5 types of cheese and two types of meat and of course lots of bread. People were still eating and drinking when the sommelier finished her presentation. She told us to take our time finishing up and if we had any questions she would be at the bar in another room. A few minutes latter a fellow showed up and said, "you have to go, I have to clean up". Felt like we got the bums rush. The tasting room was nicely appointed and this could have been a great experience. Unfortunately not for us.
We had a great day. Tour guide answered all our questions and made some great suggestions. He made sure that the tour was geared to our interests. Our driver was excellent as well, always being there to pick us up in a timely manner. I would recommend this tour.
We had a great deal of fun. Our chef was great! Even though she gave all the hard jobs to us men! Just kidding, She helped us put together a delicious meal with lots of fun and laughs along the way.
