Felicity was a wonderful sommelier! Very interesting to learn about the different regions, how they impact the taste of the wine and how to pair them with cheeses to bring out the best in both.

We had a great time learning about wine, the regions it comes from and how to best pair it with a cheese from Felicity. Also, a huge perk is that if you love the wine as much as we did you can purchase it and take with you or have it shipped back home. We had an amazing time and highly recommend this tour and guide.

A great and funny guide. Who explained the production process of each wine. A little side note might be to use more glasses so the different wines not gets blended together
