A typical HOHO day is three 30 minute tastings before lunch, a 90 minute lunch and tasting stop - then three more 30 minute tastings after lunch before gathering everyone and heading home just after 4pm. If you skip the lunch stop you will see more wineries. Please note that if you choose wineries with longer tasting times (60 to 90 minutes) you will experience fewer total wineries on your tour.
How does HOHO work? There will be up to 14 guests on the HOHO shuttle. The driver walks everyone through everything at the start. The order of wineries is done with the driver at the start of the tour. The driving route is one big circle and it is driven geographically stopping in the order determined by the guests. You go where you want and others go where they want. You are never more than 5 or so mins from the shuttle. 99% of everyone goes to the same no-fee wineries. It is run with military precision by the drivers so the experience is smooth for our guests.
