My wife and I took a wine tour in 2016. We stopped at 4 wineries, and sampled some very good wines. Highlight was stopping at Luckett Wineries, and getting served by non other than Pete Luckett himself, with his interesting stories of his past.

Some details and history of the wine industry for those who are really keen to know that information, and not too much info for those who are less interested.... More

This was our first time at a wine tour and what I loved about it was that a bus or van picks us up so there is no driving on our part. The driver was very knowledgeable and very friendly. The tour took us to Domaine de Grand-Pré, Planters Ridge Winery and Annapolis Cider Company. Since it was November we... More

Our tour was such an amazing way to spend a day. The tour guide was hilarious, which made the actual bus ride really enjoyable.
