This is a wine tasting tour (not just drinking!), so please remember to avoid wearing any strong perfumes or colognes and try not to consume coffee in the 30 minutes prior to the start of the tour. We want our noses and palates fresh for tasting!

Please let me know in advance if you have any food allergies, preferences, or aversions to common foods

Taste and Learn!

Ever visit a tasting room and feel overwhelmed by wine terminology and tasting etiquette? Allow me to walk you through professional tasting methodology, wine production, organic vs biodynamic viticulture, and food pairing fundamentals. By the end of the last glass you should be able to have a good grasp of proper tasting etiquette and be able to have a full fledged conversation with a sommelier!

It is important to note that I am very selective about my choice of wines. With over 500 wineries in the valley, many small, fine wine oriented producers are overlooked by large scale industrial operations. We will taste some of Napa’s most heralded wineries (likely ones you’ve never heard of), as well as international wines. I like to champion true artisans and support small businesses!

Tours are limited to six guests to allow for a more intimate and personalized experience.
