From the moment we were picked up from the Nines it was an amazing time. It was my daughters first wine tasting experience and it was very special. This was a visit with friends and family.

No. Most fees were $15 pp and bottles of wine were most frequently $50 at the wineries we visited. We did get a discount at one of the wineries because of our guide.
