A Recent Review of this tour

This was a fairly long but absolutely lovely (and uncrowded) day. Miguel selected wineries to suit our tastes and interests, as his background makes him especially knowledgeable in this area. We appreciated his skillful (and sober) driving, his helpful commentary, and friendly, considerate manner. A lovely lunch with spectacular view, as well!
