The LaJolla Wine Tour was an unexpected highlight of my time in California. I was in the area for a conference and has just arrived on a Wednesday afternoon. My travel companion found out about the wine tour on line. I called Shira to make the reservations, left a message, and got a return call within the hour. Everything about this experience was professional, engaging, enjoyable, and (most of all!) extremely memorable. The food/wine pairings were divine, so much so that we returned to Cafe Milano on the following night for dinner and to have more of the Maddalena Cabernet. Shira was so well informed about the area and the walking in between restaurants made for an ideal balance between sitting and moving. We all had umbrellas as we knew the tour would go on rain or shine, but the weather even cooperated and we stayed dry. (It would have been worth it even if it had rained!) I would strongly encourage anyone anywhere near this area to take advantage of this incredible opportunity. I went back to the hotel raving about it to all who would listen and think that some who worked there may be going on a tour soon. :) If I'm ever back in LaJolla, I know who I'm calling and what I'll be doing first!!!
