Cam was the best host. Good knowledge on winemaking and interesting facts and history of the venues we visited. The wineries are all located in breathtaking surroundings. The wines were great the food excellent, the scenery beautiful and Cam was an awesome host. Our whole day was fantastic.

Great overall experience. Guide was very nice and had knowledge of wine himself that was a nice addition to the day. 3 lovely wineries that each offered something different.

We had a group of 4 ladies we had the best guide, very informative.

I would recommend this tour to go see the vineyards, our guide was Cam. This guy loves the area the job and you can engage in good conversations with him.

We come from a wine country (central California), so it was fun and interesting learning about the different grapes and climate. A pretty ride too.

Our tour guide, Amanda, was great! She was engaging and personable, and made for a wonderful experience!
