Hello, SS from Nelson! I believe your review is on the wrong business as the owner (me) is definitely not a "gal," nor did we have any female guides employed during your visit in April. There is one tour company (with a similar name) in...More

This was a fabulous way to spend the afternoon. Ron was knowlegable without being condescending. We weren't rushed. The staff at each and every winery were friendly and accommodating. In comparison to a recent Napa Valley visit, this wins hands down!

Dino, our guide and driver, was very knowledgeable, helpful and entertaining. His knowledge of the area and wineries was exceptional. Thank you Dino, I learned a few things about the area and wines I did not know.

Hello, Dianne. I think you are asking the wrong business... we are a Wine Tour & Wine School company, not an accommodator.
