“Top Tour! Our host’s knowledge of the local wineries and vintages was impressive. Equally important, he clearly has cultivated a strong rapport with each winemaker. This could be seen on our trip by the freedom that we had in touring the cellars and production facilities and in the warm welcome and friendly service we received from the winery staff. The choice of venues was astutely tailored to our food and wine preferences. Top marks!: TripAdvisor Review – T J McClelland, Goshen NY USA
