This was by far my favourite wine tasting venue of the four offered by the tour company. The surroundings were relaxed and informal with the tastings taking place in a quiet garden area. Check out the trademark customised pick up trucks out front!

Stumbled onto this gem of an Italian-style winery. Thoroughly enjoyed the wines and the expertise of Ryan, our 'guide.' Bought a bottle of their amazing Phenomenon blend and some lovely Rosato di Sangiovese.
