The tour and staff were outstanding. Beautiful country side sights and small villages. The small winery tour and time with the owner was a great experience. We would do it again and try some of the other tours offered.
Outstanding Day of wine tasting
Vladimir was an outstanding guide, he ascertained our preferences and tastes and designed a perfect day of vineyards and wineries to tour and lunch was both amazing and breathtaking views.
