Had a fantastic time on the wine tour. Mike was very obliging and really knows his wine. He had a great rapport with all the vineyards we went to and his suggestions were spot on. Look forward to doing another trip in the future. Highly recommended trip! Thanks Mike

It was lovely to meet you guys and thanks for the awesome review. Going out and about to some of our wineries is always a fun, rewarding day, but thanks for your support. The "virus" hasn't spoiled that part of our lives and so it's fun to be able to get out there tasting again. All the best.
