My wife and I wanted to take the wine tasting tour, but discovered that things are done differently on weekends. Instead of taking the tour and then going to their wine bar for the tasting, they set up stations. I guess because it is more crowded during the weekend. They gave us each a small plastic cup, which we would use throughout the tasting. We then walked to the bar where you sampled two wines. Then up the stairs to the second stationed. Here you were able to sample the ruby port, which I recommend, and their signature red table wine. A brief walk around the corner to the third station where we sampled two other wines, one of which was their sherry. The last station has their premium wines, but there is a $5 charge per person to sample those wines. So for those of you expecting the tour and typical wine tasting, I would suggest visiting the winery on a weekday. As for their wine shop, the prices are reasonable and if you buy a case of 12 (mix and match), you get 20% off of the price. We bought a case of several wines and after the savings, it was almost like getting 2 free bottles of the Rupy Port. Nice deal. We didn't make it up to the terrace bar, but it was active. Maybe next trip.
