Also, as I wasn’t sure I could check into my hotel early, this tour was scheduled for 12:15pm, so good for using up time.

Great experience with a very knowledgeable Sommelier. The wines and cheeses were excellent and surroundings were perfect.
2 buck chuck instead of Bordeaux
Jeff_N, Dec 2022
Informative Sommelier named Rudy with fun personality that kept the crowd engaged. Amazing display of his aeration of organic wine. He gets 5 stars. However, Best wine on the menu card was not served and replaced with an undrinkable glass of swill. Bordeaux region not presented. It would have been better to introduce a new wine as an extra instead of substituting it for the best one. Had I known Bordeaux would not be served I would not have booked the experience.
A must try for those who want a true French wine and cheese experience.
