The tour was brilliant and great value for money. We were shown around the vineyard and learnt all about how the wine was grown and the history of the island. Very interesting to learn how this is done in such difficult conditions. Our tour guide Isabella was fantastic and explained everything very well. When it came to tasting the wine she was a great host and very helpful. We were able to try all the varieties of wine accompanied with some delicious homemade bread, cheese and olives. Highly recommend!
