The tour was well done and the explanation of the property and the wine was great however I did not love our guide. Luckily, I don’t take offense easily but he was poking fun at a few people the whole tour. It was all in good fun however could come off as rude to some. Other than that great tour!

We had a wonderful time! Doug was extremely informative and answered our numerous questions. Some of the people in our group have been to other wine tours in other places and said this one was one of the best they have been on. I will definitely be back for another Messina Hof experience.

We arrived early so we walked the grounds before the tour. There's a nice deck with tables overlooking a pond with a pathway around the pond. Alex was our tour guide and she is great. You know she's done this tour many times yet she is funny, informative, and obviously likes her job.Two areas for improvement, only 2 employees in the wine tasting- gift shop room on a Saturday, the bathrooms are sad

Table we had reserved was available. The food and wine we ordered was excellent. The lighting was subdued and the candle at our table was lit. What I appreciated the most was the ability to have a nice conversation at the table with the absence of blaring music. Also the room temperature was ideal. We had a wonderful dinner and conversation at this establishment.

Unfortunately, the man working behind the counter was too busy cutting up and joking with someone else to acknowledge we were standing there in line waiting for 20 minutes. I finally went to the Wine Lounge, got a drink and asked the young woman working there where I should go. Thankfully our tour guide found us. The tour was great, we attempted to purchase a bottle, only to get ignored again.

We went with friends on this tour. It was fun, and we learned some interesting things about growing grapes, making, and tasting wine! There is nothing like the smell of oak barrels! Our guide was knowledgable about the wines and tasting "techniques". Most importantly, the wine was excellent! I discovered a new love of port! We even had their dessert made with port wine!

At the begging it wasn't because of lack of information and help from the staff but towards the end it was better. Doug was very informative and helpful, he made the experience better. Kim was the one that helped with the whole confusion on where we were supposed to be to take the tour seeing that in fact was not the Gallery like it states on the email confirmation.
