La Grande Maison was a dream come true in terms of beauty, ambiance and enjoyability. Sue and Micaela are very welcoming, knowledgable and fun to be with - both go out of their way to ensure guests' every desires are met. We took the 4 night, 3 day wine tour, and thought perhaps it would be become repetitive, but no - it got better and better, and we learned so much! Sue and Micaela's first hand understanding of wine and the wine industry, as well as their friendships with the local vintners allowed us to be welcomed into the wine-making families and to experience first hand how proud and passionate they are about this noble profession which in many cases has been their lives and livelihoods for centuries. We'll be back!
