“What a great tour! James picked us up right on time and took us to heretofore unknown wineries where the principals/owners spent their valuable time with teaching the fine points of their trade. This was our first tour- we were knocked out by the regard our director had for the operators and vice versa. We had top of the line tasting events and James was a great tour director. I recommend Platypus and would gladly go again!”
