This was such a fun and informative program that my husband and I would be ready to attend again. The venues we visited were outstanding, as were the instructor and group leaders. Our fellow participants obviously love to travel and learn just like us, as we were the only two for whom this was our first Road Scholar program. It is such a wonderful way to go and we're ready to book our next one soon!

This was my first experience with Road Scholar and I absolutely loved it! The key to this program's excellence is the instructor, Bob Dickey, because he is amazingly knowledgeable and fun to listen to! I am not a wine expert, but I was completely fascinated with the whole winemaking process. I especially like how the program is logically presented, focusing on vineyards and grape growing, then winemaking and lastly, wine blending and bottling. We were able to blend our own wine on our final day and celebrated with a fantastic multi-course dinner with wines to accompany each course while we listened to the winemaker (who provided the wine for the dinner) speak as we ate! I highly recommend this program!
