Hello, is it acceptable to bring an 11 and 9 year old to this vineyard? If so, would the tour be appropriate? I believe they'd enjoy the beauty of the grounds. They are accostumed to travel and touring museums etc. Thank you.

Yes, this place is very family friendly. However, you should probably call them to ask about children on the tour.
