Absolutely superb tour on this stunning island. Graham, our hospitable and knowledgable Guide, took us to three welcoming and picturesque wineries - Kennedy Point, Casita Miro and Obsidian. The three tastings were informative, entertaining and generous. Highly recommended.

Two words: Amazing tour!! The three vineyards chosen were magnificent and the food at Casita Miro was out of this world. Each winery had a beautiful story to tell as well as a beautiful view of the island. At the end of the trip, Jean and team helped my wife and I secure a handbag that was left in the island!! Overall, team was amazing and I highly recommend this tour!
