Wow! What an amazing experience. The sunset tour exceeded my expectations. Impressive views our guide was great and informative. The food and wine was out of this world. Great food pairing and service was excellent. Defiantly recommended!

We enjoyed wandering around the grounds and taking in the views and then tasting some great wines. This would be worth a visit simply for the history of the place, but the setting and the wines completely made it a winner. Very enjoyable day!
