We had an excellent experience from the beginning to end. Pepe from Infinito Winery was very attentive and cordial. Provided details about his wine. We where able to taste differently types. Thet our guy Luigi was excellent, he showed us around and even recommended good eating places. At our second stop Cava De Marcelo we learned about cheese making, history about the place over 100 years. We enjoyed this experience very much would fully recommend it.
