Then we are off to indulge in a Blind Tasting at Gray Monk, Its so much fun and informative 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.
