Beautiful Scenery, Exquisite Wines, & Delectable Cheeses
Enjoy a relaxing and scenic drive along the north bench to Lake Country, where we stop for tasting at one of our newest wineries, Intrigue Wines. Then we are off to indulge in a Blind Tasting at Gray Monk. What fun and informational too.
After the tastings, we enjoy a wonderful lunch at a Gray Monk. You will order off the menu, but be sure to let us know about allergies so we can inform the restaurant in advance. Lunch and the gratuity for lunch service is included in your tour cost.
In the afternoon, we visit three additional wineries. Usually, they are Arrowleaf, Ex Nihilo, and O’Rourkes Family Vineyard where we enjoy a wine and cheese tasting to end the day.We do have some choice depending on traffic and guests preferences. The itinerary may change depending on the availability of reservations at the time of booking. We will experience 20-25 small tastings at five wineries in Lake Country.
