Marie provided us with a great day and we enjoyed talking with her about Oregon wines and hearing the history of the Willamette Valley. We had an idea what wineries we wanted to see and she confirmed the good choices and steered us to some new experiences as well. We will be back.

Thanks again to Fred and the wonderful day that we spent with him in October. He picked us up promptly at our hotel, and we spent the day learning so much about wine. We went to smaller boutique wineries and had a wonderful lunch that Fred supplied. After our day and our purchase of a case of wine, Fred took... More

A friend and I booked a wine tour of Willamette with Marie in mid-September, and had such a wonderful time—it exceeded my expectations! We were so impressed with the level of service, customization, and care she and Fred put into their tours. Marie clearly took our preferences into account when planning the day (she had asked via email when we... More

My wife and I visited Willamette Valley for the first time Sept 14-16. We've been to Napa and Sonoma before so this was something new. We spent the day with Fred - A Nose for Wine - on Sept 15. Fred's knowledge of the industry, choice of wineries and his easy going personality made this a very special day for... More

It was our first time in Oregon and we wanted a driver for the wine tastings, so we booked A Nose For Wine tour based on recommendations from here and we were not disappointed. We did ask Fred to bring us to one specific winery and the other places he brought us were certainly a great experience. The prior communication... More

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
