The wine tasting tour ride through the town and surrounding areas was fabulous! The only thing better was the tour guide, Barb. She gave an amazing history of the town and was quite personable.

Excellent tour of the town as well as many beautiful views from selected spots. We learned so much from Barb and can’t say enough about this tour. A must do on your list of activities while visiting this nostalgic piece of history.
