We visited Trefethen as a family of four and did the wine tasting in the Villa with Gary! It was so personal and fun...Gary even took the time to walk us around the garden after we tasted the most amazing wine!

Recently went to Trefethen winery and enjoyed a sit down wine tasting. The grounds are beautiful and the the historic winery building is spectacular post renovation. The wine was awesome and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Would definitely go again!
