This was such a fun experience. Lots of wine to taste and getting to create your own wine blend is fun and includes lots more wine tasting. They also allowed us to try some amazing olive oils. Overall experiences was a 10 out of 5 stars.
We had a group of 7 people ages ranged from 14-80. Everyone had the best time. Learning about the olive oil process was so interesting as well as how they make wine. The dinner afterwards was absolutely delicious. We couldn’t have had a better time. Our tour guide was outstanding as well.
Worth the cost/Excellent
