We decided to try the wine and chocolate ride down the river both ways for about an hour. Informative, peaceful and interesting are words that best come to mind.

You must do this!! The wine and chocolate tasting tour is a blast on a nice warm day. Our guides were friendly and we loved floating along the river chatting. Great value!

Return each year to enjoy a little local wine and chocolate tasting by knowledgeable staff. Jess & Garrett were outstanding hosts and we purchased many bottles and chocolates for private tastings in room. Never tire of hearing the local take on the tourists events.

Yes, they have wine tasting. We went during the early spring so the boats were out yet so we did our wine tasting inside. We had a great time. But we plan on returning to go on the cruise trip. They were very helpful and... More
