wonderful tour and guide

We really enjoyed this wine tour! We were looking for something that included lunch, as well as not having to drive anywhere, so this one fit the bill. Our tour guide Jillian was the best, she set out quite a spread for lunch in a most beautiful vineyard setting at one of the wineries on the tour. Since there were no others that booked for this day it ended up being a private tour, even better! We highly recommend this tour!
We had an amazing time! Randy was highly knowledgeable and created the perfect, evolving itinerary for us based off what wines we were enjoying throughout the day. We also got to visit some smaller wineries that we would have never known about, but thoroughly enjoyed even favored!. We learned so much, had a great day, and will certainly reach out to him when we are back next year for another tour.
This was one of the best tours we have taken. Our tour guide, Tommy Thompson, tailored the tour around our tastes. He also knew many of the wine tasting hosts/hostesses which made the tasting more intimate and personalized. In between stops he was very knowledgeable about the wines and the history of the area. This tour was definitely a day and money well spent.
