Leave the driving to HOHO!

At first we were concerned we would not be able to see as much as hoped but with a little planning making reservations, the day was much better than expected. It is essential to make reservations and we were unable to get a lunch at the places we wanted (last minute planning) so we did a carry lunch. The person who guided me to understand the schedule the day before was so helpful and pleasant, and our driver Gavin was amazing. He made excellent suggestions which got us to 5 wineries and two other stops along the way. He really clearly loves his area and was so informative. And he was also very prompt and clear about where we needed to be and when. All in all an excellent day!
