It was such a lovely day out. We did two wine tours which complemented each other, one showed how the wine was made while the other show you how to best taste wine. In the afternoon we did the Lubernon tour visiting three towns. You get around an hour in each which may feel short but the point of this tour was to see the towns, we’ll definitely visit for more time again. The towns were amazing!!
