We had a great tour with Fred. Very entertaining and educational, and well, yeah, the wine was outstanding. A great tour for anyone from a novice to an experienced wine-snob, as long as you are really interested in the wines and not just looking for an extended happy hour.

I visited some wineries with Marie as our guide in mid-September. So glad I went with them. The wineries are spread out and had I driven myself, I'd be spending more time getting lost than tasting wine. We visited a range of wineries from the very small like Prive where the winemaker got us barrel tastings to the overly commercialized... More

Our first time to Willamette Valley Pinot Noir country and Fred was absolutely amazing! We were educated on many levels about our favorite pinots!

It would be well worth spending an afternoon with Fred Grunton even if you never sampled a drop of wine! A wine evangelist, seeking to share his knowledge with you and to teach you how to expand your own wine experience, not just for the tour, but for going forward. He also knows everybody in the Willamette Valley, and he... More

We had the pleasure of going on our second wine tasting tour with Fred in the Oregon Wine Country. He attends to every detail and you know that every minute has been planned perfectly. If you are looking for an amazing experience and being welcomed by some of the most unique and fabulous wineries Fred is the guy. We are... More

We were up visiting for our 21st anniversary and had heard about "A Nose for Wine" from a friend. First let me start by saying we are new to wine. We had a wonderful time. Marie arranged a behind the scenes tour of a great little winery to help us understand wine from the vine to the glass. We then... More

There are not enough words to describe the awesomeness that is Marie. From her prompt pick up of me and my friend at our downtown Portland hotel to the superb tastings and perfectly assembled crudite platters for cleansing our palate and taming our tummies, I simply can not sing Marie's praises as a wine sherpa enough. The love and dedication... More

What a day, what a guy! Fred was prompt in picking us up from our rented cottage in Willamette Valley. After giving us a 10 minute crash course in willamette wine/soil/geography, we hit the road and enjoyed tastings at four different vineyards over the 6 hours we spent together. We probably could have made it to one more but Fred... More

From the moment you meet Fred Gunton, you know you are in for a special day. Fred will pick you up in a nice van and will bring you to many "hidden gem" wineries throughout the Willamette. Wineries that you might not have known about had your not met him. His knowledge and expertise of the geology and morphology of... More

Fred is a very good tour guide and generous with providing us with a wide variety of cheeses, crackers, and fruit as we traveled around beautiful Oregon wine country! He is very knowledgeable about wines and the local vineyards; he was quite helpful catering to our individual needs. Our group believed his tour to be the best of our trip!
