The tour is fantastic start to finish. The guides are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. Afterwards, relax and enjoy a couple of cocktails under the shade of the numerous oak trees on the property. It’s definitely a “must do” if you’re in the area

I wouldn’t bring kids on the tour. They will be bored (they can’t do any tastings) and they probably won’t like the smell. The grounds by the gift shop has a swing and horseshoes they can play.
