Just a thought but maybe not much help ,if they are going next month, August, vineyards are fairly quiet at that time of year as not much happens . Harvest starts in september /october and things are fairly busy then.

Thanks blowbroth. Will bear that in mind. Just found a link for a company that allows you to buy the weekend breaks BUT they are valid for 6/12/18 months..that may be a good option....although not ideal esp if the company goes bum up like red letter days did hmm.

It will be for august BTW, but only as a gift. Would ideally like them to book for a time convenient to them iykwim...
