We really enjoyed the tour. Gary was friendly and informative, the wineries were wonderful. Loved the wine cave and Emily did a wonderful job at Gibston Valley Winery. Dominion Rd Winery had wonderful views and great wines. The meal was lovely, something different and the wines were well matched. Would have been nice to have a room of our own to enjoy the meal. Our last stop at Kinross was great too and we were able to taste wines from more than one winery. Altogether a fabulous day. Thank you!
