We enjoyed the tour but feel that lunch would better if it had been provided a little later on the tour- probably at the second winery. Our driver was excellent and very accommodating.

Pick up punctual. Our driver was awesome, felt safe and comfortable. I think that wineries should offer a small platter with tastings. Torlesse wines was the only one that offered a small bite which really made the difference. Wouldn't have a problem paying extra for this.
I had the best time with everyone, learned a lot about southern wines and the landscape. I met the coolest people and had an all all over blast. Thank you!!
