Our Guide was simply “Superb” in every way! She was extremely knowledgeable about the wine industry, the countryside and the history of the Castle we visited, as well as, the history of wine growers in Italy! The Location she choose for our lunch in Tuscany, was awesome, the food selection, preparation & taste was incredible. We were served on the patio with an unbeatable view of the winery, and oh, what a charming dining facility! It was my sister & brother-in-law 50th Anniversary, and this tour could not have been more perfect and more memorable! Thank you to everyone!
