Fantastic Experience! We learnt lots of fascinating information about the history of the property, and the production method and how the company operates, all in a gorgeous location! Love the small business set up and how they clearly care quite well for their staff. Unfortunately we don't remember the name of the tour guide, but he was fantastic
