They call this a "wine Tour" but every tour I've been on is strictly structured and this was pleasantly not so. Although we were presented with an itinerary listing certain wineries, after a discussion of our likes and dislikes, our driver Thomas actually changed up the day in a way that was exactly what we wanted, but left to our own devices we would have never figured it out. We were fortunate enough to go on a slow weekday with just one other couple, and they were game for anything, so it ended up being all about us (actually all about the wife, since I am not much of a wino and was happy drinking any hooch presented to me). By the time you count up the costs of the tastings ($40) that are included and the lunch (about $16 if you bought it yourself at Panino, by my estimate), you are only really paying an extra $42 (total $98 per person) to have an interesting and knowledgable guy drive you around for 6 hours, set up your lunches in a fu-fu picnic setting that the wives love, load in all your purchases and give them to you all neatly arranged in boxes at the end of the day, and let you kick back in a big comfortable cool shuttle while someone else does all the work. Seems like a pretty good deal for a great service in todays world of high prices for low service. Cheers, Thomas, and thank you Grapeline. We'll be back with our whole neigborhood in the Spring. -- Andrew and Annie from Azusa
