“An enjoyable day of wine tasting and touring”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

There was only one other couple with us for an off peak Sunday afternoon tour. Richard, our tour guide, was great. We travelled to 5 wineries in the area with one of them showing us a more in depth look at their facility. We would liked to have seen more of the process from vineyard to bottle but we still managed to broaden our knowledge of wine as we were not very experienced in this beforehand. The last stop of the day included cheeses to sample with our wine. Overall a very enjoyable day.

“Very accomodating”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

We toured four wineries and it was the end of the day.
We wanted to go out for dinner but couldn't drive (obviously) and didn't want to go back to thehotel only to turn back around via a taxi.
Our driver was so accomodating, he volunteered to drop us off at the hotel so we could put our wine away andget changed. Then he took us to our restaurant.

Where have you ever had service like that?

Great company, great driver.

As soon as we got picked up at the B&B we knew we were in good hands...Diane was a charmer....,she asked if we had visited any other wineries in the area so she made sure we did not visit the same ones...everywhere we went she seemed well liked and respected...Enjoyed her company trementously!! we were able to help her by recommending a restaurant in London ON.... if you want someone to amuse you ...she and her team are the ones to visit..

“recommend.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Pick up and drop off were on time. Food included in the lunch (Terroir La Cachete) and wine tour was very good and the selection of different sizes of wineries was good. We went to 5 wineries in all. Our guide was from the local area so he knew everyting about the areas we drove through.

I can imagine that all the tours are good, but I was happy with my selection.
