I just got back from a weeklong trip to Sonoma, California. My friend and I (40+ years of friendship), spent the week wine tasting, taking cooking classes, and indulging in some spa treatments. One of the best days was the day we went on a Platypus Tour, with Ken Winston as our tour leader. Ken took us to various wineries, a tasting room, a chocolate store (Yum!) and an olive oll shop. Our tour group included eight ladies from around the country. but we were bonded as a group by the end of the day. The day was full of laughter and hilarity, teasing and fun. Ken took care of us and toted our bags, told us local history and some inside stories. He even stopped at a Glen Ellen restaurant to help one of our party secure information about reservations for dinner that evening. I would highly recommend that anyone who is thinking of wine tasting in the Sonoma valley call Platypus Tours and asking for Ken as a tour guide.
