Amazing experience with the wine tour. We had Francesco as our guide -- he was lively and very knowledgeable. He spoke great english and had no issues understanding him. Their production consists of using organic methods which result in a great tasting wine. The facility itself is beautiful and the views are incredible. The price was very affordable and we tried around 8 wines, which is more than other wineries offer in the area. If you're vegetarian/vegan, they can accommodate.
Great hosts, passionate and informative tour and very detailed and patient experience of wine tasting with complementary food. My only regret was not being able to purchase more wine. Great views while moving through the area. Will go back for sure!
