Very relaxing! Great wine!! Great fellowship!! - My Goddaughter and I had such a great time on this tour!! The winery tour at Gray Ghost winery was very informative. The Sommelier explained how to sample and choose a great wine. He was awesome! The best part…..THE WINE!! Absolutely delicious!! The second winery is Narmada. Such a beautiful winery!! The food was amazing and the wine was oh so good!!! The owner was very personable. She told stories and answered questions. I very much recommend this tour and these wineries!! The pick-up location had available parking. The transportation to the wineries was very clean and comfortable. Our tour guide, Nicole, did a fabulous job! I will definitely do this tour again when I’m back in the area!!

Great time for visitors and area locals alike! - My husband and I are local to the area but had never visited the two wineries. Well, they were great and the tour guide Angela was very pleasant and accommodating. She even threw in an impromptu apple orchard, for apple cider, on the way to the second winery. We had a great time, especially talking and sharing with the other visitors.

Great wine, wonderful host - We went to Philip Carter winery and Aspen Dale Winery. Philip Carter has beautiful hilly scenery; Aspen Dale has a lovely homey rustic tasting room. Our tour guide (Nicole) was so knowledgeable and friendly, and her passion for wine and love for sharing it made it so much more than just a trip to wine country. You can really learn something about an underrated wine region if you’re looking for that… or you canjust drink. Either way it’s a good time!

Winery Tour - We had a great time! From beginning to end, the service and experience was top notch! Doni kept us well informed all the way up until our tour and Beth was an excellent tour guide! They made sure we were well taken care of. While we couldn’t ask for a better winery tour, Beth made sure to ask the group how they could improve the experience for others in the future. That says a lot about Beth and the Spirited Tours business. Thanks for such a great experience!!

Winery Tour - Overall, this tour was alright. Gray Ghost winery was awesome and we got lucky enough to have a member of the family who owns the winery available to give us a tour and do our tasting. We then went to Narmada winery which was fine, but sort of fell flat after the first amazing experience - the wine was decent, but instead of an actual tasting we purchased 4 bottles and split these among the entire group. The tour group called me earlier in the week and told me that we were such a large group, that we would not have to have any other groups with us. Unfortunately the day of, we left 40 minutes late because there was another group with us and they were late. So we sat on the bus patiently awaiting their arrival for 40 minutes. I would have thought since we had a time limit for the day, we would honor a grace period for late comers so we were not rushed the rest of the day. The snacks we were provided included stale oyster crackers, stale chips, and I didn’t bother trying anything else. With this price, it’s sort of shocking that there is no real food included. We were told we would be driving an hour away, and two hours later we arrived. It was not due to DC traffic, either. When we pointed out this was going to be a two hour drive, Angela insisted that was incorrect and it was an hour and five minutes - despite holding up my Google maps and pointing out this was not the case. If the ride is really going to be that long, it would’ve been nice to at least have some commentary on the scenery we were passing and/or some wine history instead of the silence (no radio). I’m not sure our driver had ever driven this bus before, but if this was not her first time then I’m even less impressed. Stop go, stop go, for two hours isn’t cute. One of my favorite moments was when we pulled out of the first winery and cut someone off at 50 mph. I’m not really sure what the purpose of our “guides” were except to ask us to write a review every 15 minutes in exchange for a reusable grocery bag, because I didn’t receive much knowledge from Angela. We had Will as our guide as well, and he was very knowledgeable and seemed to read the room well. Will being good at talking but not being overbearing, and Gray Ghost are the reasons I will give this tour 3 stars instead of 1.
