You have to book ahead and luckily we (a group of 3) were able to join a tour. It's a very informative and enjoyable way to spend a morning. We got to see the barrel-making as well as other processes. Thoroughly recommended.

Hey Sheryl. I'm not sure emailing would work, have you heard anything? Best bet would be to call them if possible. Would you be able to?
