"The Hill Country Wine Tour was amazing! My boyfriend got this adventure for me as a Christmas gift. We waited until the weather could be trusted to book this event and boy are we glad because the car may have been a little tough to enjoy had it been any hotter. Our driver, Bryan, was outstanding. He was charming and funny; he took excellent pictures of us and really helped with the flow of the adventure. He was truly wonderful. Our favorite vineyard was Solara, it was so nice to relax outside with the actual vines within arms reach. The wine was best at Driftwood Vineyard, their Viongeir is excellent and the bottle of Starry Night Spadkling Wine we bought will be cherished! Duchman was the most elegant of our stops and of course the Saltlick BBQ is always a favorite. As you can tell, this was really wonderful. I'll definitely trust cloud9living.com in the future! "
