This was our first time in Napa for our 10 year anniversary. Dan was the perfect person to show us around and his knowledge was so helpful. We had a wonderful time and would call him again.

We had the best time with Dan! He was excellently knowledgable about wine in general and where to go. He not only set up the day for us while we where with him but also helped us to schedule where to go when we were on our own! Thanks Dan you are the man!!

Recently my friends and my husband and I went to San Francisco for a vacation. We had Dan Dolen take us on a wine tasting tour one of the days we were there. It was wonderful. Dan just asked what kinds of wine we enjoyed, and he made all the arrangements in Napa Valley. Dan is not only a great... More

Travelling from Australia with my parents and sister, we picked Dan's tour because he was the only person to suggest us taking the ferry from San Francisco to Vallejo to save wasting time/paying to drive up. Dan selected some great wineries for us to visit and knew so much about Napa and its wines. We loved our wine tour and... More

We had such a great time with Dan - he took the time to get to know us and find a great variety of wineries to visit that each taught us something a little different about Napa. He was a great conversationalist, had interesting stories, and always seemed to be thinking about the comfort and best interests of his clients.... More

Dan made this day spectacular for all of us! I had been to Napa Valley once before and experienced the popular wineries with lines and wait times, etc. I wanted a different experience than everyone bellying up to the bar for a tasting. Dan selected small, unique wineries for us - each one with its own special ambiance. We were... More

Before arriving at Napa, we discussed with Dan our wine preferences. We also wanted to see some of the smaller wineries. He mapped us out a great day of cave tasting and meeting winemakers. We were thrilled with his suggestions. He is very knowledgeable of the area and wines. He made our excursion very enjoyable with great memories. I would... More

We contacted Dan Dolen to shepherd us around some vineyards during a recent trip to Napa on the Easter long weekend. I had engaged Dan in the past and had been impressed by him. However that was a few years ago. Since then his scope of knowledge and scholarship concerning wines has increased exponentially - and he was really good... More

We have used Dan 3 times now and we will use him again when we go to Napa. No need to look anywhere else. He knows where to go, he knows so much interesting information about the area, the grapes, the wines and winemakers etc.... We wouldn't use anyone else!
