Thank you so much for this comprehensive & complimentary review. We revamped our Local Tasting Tour when a couple of our venues closed, . We took heed of suggestions previous clients had made. We're very pleased that you liked the new format. Paul thoroughly enjoyed the company & input of your group & we appreciate you taking the time to write this review.
