“Amazing! I went on this trip last year not knowing anyone and not quite sure of what to expect but you had me at “design and wine” so off I went with high anticipation and excitement to explore new places and meet new people…. it was all that and more! I was often asked, “what’s been your favorite part so far”. Every day was a new experience and I couldn’t pick just one, but looking back, the gatherings around the table everyday, toasting to each day’s event and experiences, laughing and enjoying the food, wine and people really sums it all up. I’ve come back with so much more than I could have every anticipated and I’m grateful for the journey. Thank you!… Where to next?”
