Our visits and wine tastings at 2 vineyards were incredible. More incredible was out guide-Victor is truly a gem...perfect English, charming, and a fount of knowledge (historical, cultural, and political). In addition to our trip to the vineyards we were treated to a wonderful overview of all the neighborhoods and environments we went through. It truly was a perfect day. And just an aside- Victor could hold his own driving in New York City, or any other very congested, metropolitan environment!
