If you’re reading this, it must sound slight repetitive but this is an amazing tour, also available in English for foreigners alike. Truly impressive to learn more about their wine production, a must visit and do tour when in the region!

They should be able to go on the vineyard+cellar tour.Please send email AJ ahead of time. She will get back to you asap. At wine tasting time, your youngsters will probably swirl water in the wine glass!!
