You ride up to the tasting in a tram. Great views; unique experience. You walk all around and learn about wine making while tasting at different stations. You end up on a lovely outdoor patio overlooking gorgeous hills and vineyards. No pressure, just fun!

This was very good but have had better value from one nearby. Tour is not really a tour. Wine seemed over priced compared to other. Nice but doubt I would go back.
