Vino Versum Poysdorf reviews
Fun enough also focused on the history of region.
Very friendly and helpful staff. In almost 2 hours we were through. Outdoors we couldn't see everything because a wedding was taking place. Through the audio guide via the mobile phone we have received a lot of information. Highly recommended.
