A great experience with friendly hosts

We received a very warm welcome from everyone and enjoyed an amazing and very personal tour of all the processes at the winery. We were given lots of information and the opportunity to ask questions which made it all the more interesting. The food and wine that followed were perfectly paired and explanations of why each wine complemented the food were informative. The setting was lovely, the company lively and there was also laughter. The whole experience was delightful and very enjoyable.
