Exclusive, intimate tour of the appointment-only wineries that are off the beaten path.


Exclusive insider's view of Napa from a local sommelier who has connections to wineries that are not usually seen by the typical visitor to the area. You will see the smaller, boutique producers that offer an unparalleled experience and top quality direct to consumer wines that are not typically available in wine stores or restaurants.

I will take you to wineries that offer more than just great wine but beautiful views, caves, architecturally interesting designs and of course rolling vineyards and excellent knowledgeable winery hosts.

I have worked as a sommelier in both Napa and Sonoma and I have had the opportunity to get to know the winemakers and proprietors. Having visited many different wineries in the area and tried thousands of wines I have have focused my tours on the wineries that offer the best overall guest experience.

I would love to show you some of my favorites!

Itinerary

A typical tour starts at around 9-10am. I will pick you up from your hotel or B&B in Napa or the immediate area.

We will visit 3 wineries and stop for a lunch after the first or second winery.

Each winery tour lasts between 1. 5-2 hours and will involve a tour and then intimate sit down tasting often with a cheese or charcuterie plate.
