This was a very enjoyable tour. The guide was very knowledgeable. the trip to the first winery included a stop along the road to see actual vineyard. Was not rushed at any of stops. Both wineries that we did tastings at were very very nice. The lunch included in the last stop was also the wine tasting which i thought was nice Food was authentic and delicious Wish it had even been longer. Highly recommend
