Expect ample time for tasting and purchases (optional) at each location. If you want to buy bottles to take home, you can store them in the van during the tour. You’ll also take a break for a leisurely picnic lunch at a winery or another scenic locale. Head back to your hotel with drop-off in the late afternoon or early evening, depending on the location.
