Would love to do this while in town celebrating the anniversary with my wife. Unfortunately she doesn't like beer. Any options to customize the tour, or mix in some wineries as well? I'm willing to coordinate some sort of transportation, or pay extra if need be. Just not sure how to coordinate something like this on my own... Thanks! Ron
