    Testimonials

    Thanks for another fab event Kelly, lovely day out on the canal learning about wine in the sunshine.

    Fantastic evening. The Electric Barge — and the canal at sunset! — is a wonderful venue. As always, Kelly is entertaining and informative about wine. I had a great time!

    A great day out! All we needed to do was show up, as Kelly did the rest. Who knew English wines were so good? Great people and overall a great way to spend the day!

    Quintessential English countryside, charming village, surprisingly good wine & a fabulous group to share it all with. You know it’s going to be a good day when the food and drink start flowing before you’re even off the bus. The winery was lovely & the tour informative & engaging.
