    We loved the entire idea of the tour. Caco was very knowledgeable and personable, and he knew a lot of the history of the region.. The Folded Hills Winery was amazing and worth the tour. Allison was an amazing server and let us lick fruit off of the trees on the property. She gave us some of the history of the wines and winery, and lived up to the ideals of the winery: being in the business of making friends. Koehler Winery was unremarkable; the wines all tasted the same and we didn’t feel like it was an experience. We didn’t even get all of our tastings because the wines weren’t very distinguishable. Saarloos & Sons was cool because of the cupcake and wine pairing. All of the cupcakes were delicious, but the chocolate peanut butter was one of the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. They’re in a great location and the server was amazing in giving excellent service to our group. The van was nice and comfortable, we were provided water, and Caco let us play our music over the Bluetooth.
