We enjoyed a sunny day traveling with Phil to three beautiful wineries. We tasted a variety of wonderful sparkling, white and red wines. Our visits were enhanced by the relationship Phil has cultivated with the winery personnel who in turn gave us their knowledge and attention. Our tour included a stop for lunch at a lovely resturant in the countryside.... More
