Mike was very entertaining and the wine was delicious. I really like that it was a smaller group (about15 to 20 people). By the end of the tour everyone was socializing and having fun together. The Benjamin Bridges winery was a personal favourite.

Our particular tour that included lunch was CAD110/per person. There were about a dozen people on the mini bus. It was small enough that individual attention could be paid, but large enough to ensure the right amount of fun!
