5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

Great guide, fun drive, amazing vineyards. Defiantly work it! One recommendation, if you just want to leave with one or two bottles of wine/olive oil, I would buy it from the castle vineyard. The last stop doesn’t have the same select and is better suited for larger orders only. The per unit cost of shipping wine back to the US is very expensive, unless you ship back 20+ bottles.
