  • The best part is the short movie and tasting at the end.
  • Cute, aromatic, tasting provided, a fun and easy to follow documentary to watch at the end. Really small though. Definitely worth a visit.
  • Fucking wasted the potential of the show. I was looking forward to the fact that I learn something interesting, instead of video to YouTube and weird exposure ... three stars for subsequent tasting and tour mark.
