"A week late but ya know, life. NC/Charlotte friends - I cannot recommend @thegrapeexperience enough! Anyone who knows me, knows my love for wine and a good vineyard tasting day out. Irma planned every details based on our preferences, picked us up from our doorstep, made all of our bookings, ensured we were properly fed (crucial part of day out tasting) and drove us across the Yadkin Valley. I highly recommend!"
