We went on our first wine tour with Grape Escapes and this was our first stop. great selection and very knowledgeable staff to teach us to not look like amateurs at all of the winery's. Also like that it is non profit with proceeds going back into the community.

We travelled here in the slightly "off" season (late April) and the staff were extremely helpful in providing us with a list of local wineries to visit that would be open.
