    We had an unexpected private tour with Mike as our host/driver. We had a great day and really enjoyed our time at the museum. Mike sorted out our lunch at Wither Hills, which was very nice and then chose several more wineries for tastings for our specific preferences. We were collected and dropped off from our B&B and even went to a chocolate making place.
