Return each year to enjoy a little local wine and chocolate tasting by knowledgeable staff. Jess & Garrett were outstanding hosts and we purchased many bottles and chocolates for private tastings in room. Never tire of hearing the local take on the tourists events.

I only did the chocolate and wine tasting instead of taking a cruise. Both the chocolates and the wine were delicious and the prices were very good. I brought some chocolates home and wish I bought more because I ate them so fast.
