This was great, we had a great time and Sabin is amazing!
This tour is a must see for wine enthusiasts! Each stop presented some unique knowledge and tastings. It was not simply visiting 3 breathtaking vineyards that show and say the same thing. Our guide was the perfect mixture of knowledgeable and friendly. He easily switched between French and English to accommodate everyone in our group. He provided a great history lesson on the area as well as laying a great foundation for the tour. The mixology class was fun and opened a new appreciation for wine as a cocktail, not just a drink. Lunch was scrumptious and a perfect complement to the cider tour. Sabering a bottle was something I had only seen in movies. Being able to see it first hand and hear the history of it was an experience I will not forget. Ending the tour with a movie that put beautiful images to all of the information we had received throughout the day, really tied things together. I can't wait to return I will definitely be back!
Unique tour learning about how this little niche wine is made...
but beware- all those winery's gift shops...did that get expensive fast!
but the tour was fun, the guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable, considering he had to do everything in two languages. . . and with these group tours, that's important- to not have a guide who just repeats things and is on auto pilot.
This was something of a mixed experience. Originally we thought it was a full day with lunch, but were advised that it would only be a half day and that we would visit an ice winery and an ice ciderie, as well as learning to mix cocktails. In the event we visited the first two but there was no cocktail element.
The first visit was interesting but overly long with the host explaining everything in great detail and in 2 languages. As a result there was less time to taste the produce.
The ice cider visit was more focused with the tasting including some food pairings. The whole style was tuned to the audience and took far less time than the first visit.
The tour guide was friendly enough, but the snowy conditions meant we tended to listen to music rather than listen to him.
Great tour- nice transportation and the food was amazing. It was fun to try all the wine and the fire cider. Would have been nice to know that some parts were mostly in French but the guide helped in translation a bit.
