Highly Recommend!

We had a really good time thanks to Jenny! All the vineyards and wine tastings were lovely and unique, and the included platter lunch at Stoneyridge was delicious. The highlights were definitely the gorgeous views from every vineyard we went to. Jenny was a great tour guide, very knowledgeable and incredibly accommodating by letting us start the tour earlier as we were the only ones on it. Highly recommend and for sure will tour with Ananda Tours next time! Thank you for a great afternoon!
