Mine host Kim made the visit, lots of knowledge presented to the group in plain English. The wines were stunning as was the port. Try the Gerwurtztraminer and the port. You won't regret it

We stopped in at Torlesse wines and checked out some of their wines. Kym greeted us and talked about their operation and the fine wines they produce. We decided we couldn't leave without some!
