Caramel Valley is beautiful and there are many tasting rooms to choose from. We missed some of the small print so were slightly disappointed that it was a van not a trolley and that we did not actually go to the vineyards for tasting. Nugget...More

From start to finish Gary & his wife gave all of themselves to making sure we were happy on the wine trolley. Gary's personality was upbeat and positive. Take this trip you won't be disappointed.
