We really enjoyed the tour. We were only 2 Mexican people, because sadly, foreigners are more interested in this type of tour. Our Mexican guide, Elisa and a native of San Miguel, gave us a lot of cultural information, in addition to her family experiences. Thank you for keeping these types of tours so enriching.

Thoroughly enjoyed both wineries. Gorgeous properties. Sommeliers were very knowledgeable and their exclamations were very clear and informative. We very much enjoyed the wines and the tastings and pairings. Our driver Brandon was a very sweet young man. We highly recommend it!
