So, we were asked if we had any food allergies, etc. when we signed up and we have two in our group that don't eat meat. Cherie admitted she hadn't read this and didn't have an option for the two. She also commented frequently about all the options for "wine drinkers" and

We are certainly able to accommodate any guest’s food preferences or allergies. We constantly strive to make each of guests comfortable and satisfied in this respect. I’m not sure how we missed the email communication as we frequently check our emails. At the start of each tour, we normally check on the attending guest’s food preferences and do our best to make the necessary accommodations during the tour with appropriate tastings. We apologize for your experience, but we appreciate your input for us to continue to improve our tour process.

It was a pleasant experience, but I’ve been on better tours. Most importantly, tour guides have to be careful to balance keeping the conversation going with sharing too much personal information. In this case, personal information was shared that crossed the line and made me
