John was a great guide for this excursion. He has a genuine interest in wine and was happy to share as much, or as little, information as you'd like to hear. He picked us up in a clean and comfortable SUV and made sure we enjoyed the scenery in style. The wineries he took us to were great finds, and... More

4 of us went with John on a wine tour in September and it was the most memorable tour we have been on. John is extremely knowledgable about wine in general, and very proud of the wine region outside of Tahoe. He can compare regions, varietals and attitudes between El Dorado county and Napa/Sonoma. He introduces you to excellent winemakers,... More

Vickie and John Bain's Wine Tours from Tahoe was a wonderful experience. We visited several wineries and sampled (free on this tour) the many wines. Their explanation of the various types of grapes/wines was amazing and highly informative. The tour leaves from Tahoe but the tour itself is in California. The locations are all privately or family owned and we... More

We've toured the wineries in Napa and Sonoma and didn't even know they made wine in this area. Our guide John was not only very knowledgable about the area and the wineries there but also had a good understanding of wine and how it is made. We found the quality of the wine to be very good and the people... More

Our tour guide, John, was knowledgeable and fun. He has a good relationship with the winery owners, and our visits went beyond just tasting to include a behind-the-scenes understanding of the work and passion it takes to make a great wine. This tour is an awesome way to learn about wine and the Tahoe area. Highly recommend it!

John, our tour guide was amazing. He was knowledgeable, friendly, funny and made the day such a great time. The winery staff was friendly, the lunch was amazon at the basin bistro, & candy shop was great. The wines were great and it was a wonderful day trip. Even if you aren't a wine expert, this is a great way... More

This was by far the best wine tasting tour I have ever been on. I learned so much about red and white wines. I was not a big red wine lover and after trying several different ones, I ended up buying some red and really liked them!!! Our tour guide John was very knowledgeable about the wine and answered all... More

Our tour guide, John, was good fun and very knowledgable on the wineries and the wines. The tour consisted of 5 different wineries where we had tastings and also lunch where there was another tasting. At two of the tastings we actually met the winemakers who were more than happy to spend time with us explaining about their own wines.... More

I am so glad we found Wine Tours from Tahoe! The tour we went on was to El Dorado County wine country. This was a great day; best part of our week in Tahoe! John was so knowledgeable in wine, he taught us a great deal! We also got a bit of a tour of the areas on the way... More

My wife and I were/are novices when it comes to knowledge of wines. We took the tour to learn a little and hopefully gain an appreciation of good wine. John, the guide, was just as patient as he could have been, and answered all our questions. I would highly recommend this great tour to a little-known area of wine production.... More
