We arrived at the vineyard 20 mins after being picked up at our hotel. The food was very good. There were cold meats, cheese, sundried tomtoes, olives, garlic bread and pasta. We had a brief explanation of the 6 wines, they were then left on the table for us to enjoy. Finally we had a sweet wine served with biscuits. Again the bottle was left on the table for us to enjoy. Overall a great afternoon on a rainy day.
