Be sure to add Upstairs/Downstairs tour for guided perspective of running the estate from a servant's perspective. Then take self-guided tour with recorded GPS narration.Take a nice long hike around the gardens, and top it off with Candlelight Christmas. Wonderfully run operation.

It is best to take the hotel bus. It drops you off in front of the house and will also take you right to the winery
