Amazing wine tasting experience

★★★★★ Reviewed by Laura on 2018-06-10 13:51:17
Highly recommend this tour to wine lovers. The two wineries you visit are great and offer ample tastings and information regarding the regions wines. We were a little besos tanto to book because we figured it would be a rushed wine tasting with little amounts of tasting, however we are glad we did it as it was the exact opposite! We did not feel rushed at wine tasting and the wineries offered the perfect amount of its sample wines. Our tour did run a little late from the first wine tasting that the time spent visiting the town was shortened, however, we did not mind as it is a small little town that did not require much time to see. Overall and amazing experience, highly recommended!

Great value for money.
