MIL is 60 this year and DH and BIL are thinking of ideas for her present.
They are considering sending her and FIL away for a weekend/couple of nights. They both like their wine and we thought it would be nive to have them go to a nice hotel, spend an evening/afternoon wine tasting, followed by a nice meal and a stay in the hotel.
They live in South Yorkshire - but don't mind travelling a little way - not too far though, as only for a couple of nights.
No idea on budget! They haven't got that far in their planning yet
I've only stayed in the Bristol one but liked it a lot. Asked for a glass of white wine at the bar and then realised they'd expect me to specify exactly which one I'd want! I know CD wasn't impressed with Harrogate HDV though.
I went to Vinopolis with a few friends as a little part of my hen weekend a couple of years ago. Its a great place, you start off with a quick talk about tasting wine, they get you to try different different things with your glass of wine. Its certainly not boring.
Then you walk around on your own. You get one of those things to hang around your neck to give you a guide about each display. Then every so often there are tasting areas and you use up your tokens. ALl the staff were really helpful telling you about the different wines. Certainly a place I'd go back to.
