This was the public tour. So on our tour, there were about 40-50 people on the 2 pm tour ranging from little kids to older adults. When we arrived, there were way too many people for a good wine tour because everything to much longer. The tour was really brief and not that comprehensive. We were only taken to two spots on the tour.

My boyfriend and I took the Tour De Amour and it was wonderful! We had a great tour guide that was very outgoing and konwledge about the wine process and history of Messina Hoff. The tour was well structured, and allowed us to see all the aspects of the winery. The wine and food pairing part was by far the best part though! Delicious! Be prepared that it is not a dinner meal though

The wines we sampled were all out of this world; we ended up purchasing two bottles. We had an amazing, romantic dinner in the restaurant that overlooked the vineyard. Wonderful time!

Made us very comfortable & gained a lot of info about wines & wine tasting. I think the price is reasonable. we were given adequate amount of wine to taste & we got to keep the wine glass too.

When we arrived the tasting room was nice. We waited a moment to receive service which wasnt an issue. We sat and waited for the tour to begin as we were asked. We were told someone would come get us. This didnt happen. Fortunately we got up when we saw a group get up. The tour was short, unorganized and provided little information. Ladies were nice but out of their element.

The winery was beautiful. The tour guide didn’t announce it was starting. We had to figure out where to go on our own. There were “regulars” in the VIP club in the same room as where we were learning about the winery. They kept yelling out to the guide. We could barely here the guide because of this.
