This half day tour was one of the highlights of our trip. George, driver/tour guide/host, is knowledgeable, entertaining, and very efficient. The tour at Madonna winery in Napa was interesting; the host was gracious and hospitable. I really enjoyed the wines at Ru Vango. The property is lovely and serene. All in all, a wonderful experience.
