We had been recommended this tour by someone who had been previously. As we love wine and feel we have improved our tastes over the years we were very keen to see for ourselves.
Booking the tour was an easy process. We turned up at the cafe area, introduced ourselves and had a relaxing cup of tea. Our tour guide was Daniel who was very personable and welcoming at the start.
He took us out to the vineyards an explained about the history of bolneys and the grapes that were used for the different wines that are produced. He made us realise what an amazing amount of work there is to produce a bottle of wine. We then went to vinery which was really interesting.
He then took us upstairs and we were given a chance to try 5 different wines. He explained in detail about each and we discussed if we liked them or not. In all of this he was extremely knowledgeable and we were able to make a choice of which wine to buy.
We came away with an admiration of how wine is made....and a good bottle of red.More
