We just did this with the owner Kurt. It was wonderful, he is wonderful. The whole experience was beautiful. The scenery, the service was safe and relaxing, Kurt thoughtful and so kind. He pointed out some interesting history about the area and served us champagne as soon as we arrived at the winery, Kurt made sure we had a wonderful reservation and a perfect table. My mom (who is 88) and I felt like VIPs. What a perfect day. Also Kurt handles the helicopter so well. Landing with him feels like floating down from a cloud. Very soft..Thank you so very much Kurt.
