“What a beautiful day, perfect in every way. It was truly an experience to remember, full of information and exploring the different wines was a wonderful day. This was a 35th Wedding Anniversary and we bought a bottle of wine for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. It would be truly very nice to do this again in 5 years’ time and break open this bottle of wine together. Great, great day.” –  Brian and Elizabeth
