Why this local experience is authentic

profile picture

Locals admit they are spoilt for choice and often find it difficult to put up a reasonable wine tasting itinerary allowing them to experience (and learn!) as much as possible in a single day. Add to this a wish that wines you’ll taste more or less match your drinking preferences and things will get even more complicated.
