The Works

“The experience in the winery was actually more interesting than the rest of our day in the Hills as you were able to show us wines straight from the barrels in different stages. Thank you for sharing that knowledge with us and showing us how they develop. Was great!!”

  • A unique experience in the Hills and a great opportunity for you to do something different
  • Go into the winery for a private tasting devoted exclusively to you
  • See how the “wine is handmade with passion”, and taste wines from the barrel and vat
