A Recent Review of this tour

Sophie was the perfect tour guide. She has a wealth of information on the area and a passion for what she does. She did a perfect job of incorporating the history with the modern. Not only was her tour informative for the history enthusiasts in our group, but her experience and knowledge of the local viniculture is vast and she put together a wonderful tasting for us too. She met every one of our requests. Whether your interest is history or wine, she is the expert to call upon.
