The WineFlies full day wine tour was fantastic. Our guide/ passionate wine buff was Sharif who was very knowledgeable and friendly and fun. He obviously loved showing us around and sharing his knowledge on wines and the area we drove through. The area is beautiful and worth a trip. The wineries were all very interesting and even though I can't drink red wine I enjoyed the white and the chocolate, bilton and cheese at different places. Lunch was delicious in a lovely setting. I can highly recommend this day out. Thankyou Sharif ?? - Rosemary Walker
