Based on the reviews here, I booked Fred for a one day tour of some Willamette Valley wineries. This was our first time to Oregon. "Wow" is probably the best way to describe him. We were with him from 10-6 and enjoyed every minute. He's very personable, a non-smoker, and extremely knowledgeable about the wine industry. He had prepared a... More

We spent the day with Marie, visiting 5 wineries and having a wonderful time with her and in the Wilammette Valley. We enjoyed the wine, wineries and beautiful vistas. She was very knowledgeable and helped us learn more about the wine we were drinking!

Fred was fantastic from the moment we first emailed. Very responsive and very knowledgeable. We had one day to really tour the valley and Fred arranged a great variety of visits and was a superb educator. We really enjoyed our time and would not hesitate to recommend.

I really wish I could give A Nose for Wine Tours a higher rating than 5 because this was an incredible way to experience Willamette Valley! Marie was so knowledgeable and was really a pleasure to spend the day with. When deciding to go wine tasting in Willamette Valley as part of a trip to the Pacific Northwest, my husband... More

My boyfriend and I booked a day of wine tasting with Fred and I can honestly say it was the highlight of our trip to Portland. Fred is both knowledgable/educational and laid-back/entertaining - an awesome combination. We found ourselves alternatively laughing about his stories from his days working in Reno and marveling at his ability to convey surprising, practical information... More

It was my turn to host three long-time east coast business associates/friends for our annual weekend together (many years running). Past forays in locations around the U.S. had set a high mark and I wanted a private, unique, "off the beaten path", professionally executed winery tour in the Willamette Valley that would cause "shock and awe" for my guests! Fortunately,... More

Excellent behind the scenes look into the wine industry. Just tell Marie or Fred the type of wine and tour experience you would like and they take care of the rest. From one on one experiences with winemakers and barrel tasting, to appointment only stops and brilliant locations for a lunch, Marie set it all up, with a thorough understanding... More

We are totally & thoroughly pleased to recommend "A Nose for Wine" to anyone that wants to learn more about wine in the Willamette Valley. They were very thorough in our first conversations which helped them to tailor 2 perfect days to our specific tastes.

My husband and I had a wonderful day exploring Oregon wine country with Marie! She had great picks for our day, wonderful wines, great people, and reasonably priced. We ended up with a case to take home from assorted vineyards, and can't wait to re-live our fun visit with each bottle! Marie as definitely a wine expert, but even more... More

We booked a two day tour of the Willamette Valley vineyards and wineries. Fred was our guide one day and Marie the next. They were very knowledgable about wine and the area, as well as being lots of fun! Marie prepared wonderful little snack trays to compliment some of our tastings! They also did a great job of choosing wineries... More
