The wine tour was absolutely amazing, we had such a great time! The Mountain Winery was probably our favorite, just because the views were spectacular and we were able to relax and take in the scenery. Bryan (driver) was fantastic and so knowledgeable about the region. Please extend our sincere thanks to him for taking such good care of us.
We really liked Picchetti because of its ambiance and history, and the gentleman who did our wine tasting there was our favorite! We also loved Cooper-Garrod because they had live music and horses, which was a fun way to end the day. Will highly recommend your tours to anyone visiting the area!

Local tours are priced either by the vehicle's hourly rate + tasting fees (for groups of 10 to 15 people, using the executive-lux van), or we have a package price for groups of 20 or more that includes the vehicle and tasting fees at 3 wineries, in one per-person price (see details in next paragraph)
If you have 20 people or more, cool! We offer special package pricing for local area tours: Visit 3 wineries in an upgraded luxury coach (black, with leather seats) = we have package pricing starting at $83 pp and up to $95 pp - depending on which wineries and how much they charge for the tastings. (+ tax) - includes tasting fees, driver gratuity, 5.5 hrs executive lux transportation, and our booking services that give you VIP access/services at wineries. Most local wineries are available for package rate, please call for info. NOTE:
Lunch options: Bring your own picnic*, order our gourmet boxed lunches* ($16 pp), have our chef make you a nice bbq or picnic buffet* ($30 pp and up, depending on menu selected), have lunch at a local restaurant, or simply do an afternoon tour that doesn't require lunch - up to you!!
* - most wineries charge a picnic reservation fee, or an indoor dining facility fee of $5 to $15 per person, depending on which winery and if your lunch will be indoors or out. This is a fee charged by the wineries, not us, and it will be listed on your bill, in addition to the cost of the meal.
Our experience was fantastic and everyone had a great time! We loved Dan (driver) – he was very friendly, personable, and went above and beyond. The lunches were perfect! ...I don’t think I could have planned a more organized, care-free day of wine tasting myself. I loved that no one had to worry about driving, paying, directions, lunch, etc. Literally everything was taken care of and it was just as I hoped it would be. Thank you so much for all your help and for creating such a wonderful experience for our group. We will definitely be recommending you and coming back!
