“Fantastic weekend vacation in Napa/Sonoma”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

We used Intimate Wine Tours for our 2 days of wine adventure in Napa and Sonoma and it was fantastic!!!! Tom was amazing in his knowledge of the region and some of the wineries they suggested were just amazing! The picnic that was arranged was amazing, Susan out did herself, the food and the ambiance were tremendous. My partner surprised me by proposing on our vacation and Intimate Wine Tours went above and beyond to make the event special and memorable and I thank them for this. Susan I only wish I could coax you up to Canada to cater my wedding. Tom and Susan you are amazing, I am telling everyone I know that if they are considering a trip to Napa/Sonoma to book thru you so you better brush up on your Canadian speak. Thanks for the wonderful memories and look forward to booking with you again. Tom, I enjoyed our dialogue of The Godfather, thanks for taking me to "the desk", it was a highlight for me, LOVED IT!

Again, CONGRATULATIONS, on your proposal and getting engaged in the Napa wine country. Everything was entirely our pleasure and we are so elated that we had the opportunity to be a part of your special occasion. Susan truly does a remarkable job regarding her three course gourmet catered picnic lunch with the ambiance and holiday Halloween theme. Thank you for deciding to choose our company, we look forward to seeing all of you again in the near future and to provide you with another exceptional wine tour experience with Intimate Wine Tours. Congratulations on the engagement!
With warm regards,
Tom

“Two days of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

My friend found Intimate Wine Tours through Trip Advisor and my husband worked with Susan to create our 2 day itinerary. Tom and Susan get an A++++ for customer service, knowledge, information and providing a one of a kind experience. Because of Tom's vast knowledge of the area including history it really was a fabulous experience for our first time in Napa/Sonoma. We were able to just sit back in our car and enjoy the scenery and not worry about getting lost or missing appointment times. They were able to get us into some very hard to get into wineries and also suggested some we didn't know about that ended up being absolute gems. We had two in our party have to cancel for a family emergency and Susan was able to get everything re-arranged. She put on a wonderful Halloween themed picnic for us. Everyone in our party of 4 was over the top happy with the experience. I will and have been recommending them to anyone I know who is interested in Napa/Sonoma.

Thank you so much for deciding to choose Intimate Wine Tours as we are all thoroughly pleased that you had such a great time on your two day wine tour. Susan does an outstanding job with her hospitality and level of customer service from the first point of contact over the phone, to making reservations at some very rare and obscure wineries. There are numerous advantages of booking with our company; first advantage is the cost effective price point for booking a two or more day wine tour; secondly, our ability to make some great recommendations based upon your palate and personal preference towards wine. Again, it was entirely our pleasure from the wine tour to the Halloween picnic themed catered luncheon. We look forward to seeing all of you again soon and to provide you with another fantastic wine tour and gourmet catered picnic lunch with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom

“Brilliant day out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We had a wonderful day out with intimate wine tours. I had seen the reviews on trip advisor and we were extremely pleased with the service we received. Tom was very knowledgeable about the area and the wine growers. I would certainly use them again if we return to the Napa valley.

“Great time in Wine country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

Josh and Susan at IWT did a great job made all the arrangements for us, picked us up and drove our rental car to some of the best in the area. The Robert Hunter tour is fantastic your were welcomed into the Hunter garden and enjoyed their wine sitting looking out over the vineyard as Curt talked about their wine and garden. Made you feel as if you were invited to a private party at their house, just 16 people having several glasses of wine, not just a tasting, it was great.

On behalf of the entire Intimate Wine Tours team we thank you for choosing our company for your wine tour. One of the many advantages of booking with our company, if your desire is to gain access to very exclusive and "closed" vineyards, is our ability to schedule appointments at certain wineries. This is predicated upon our relationships that we have developed with the wineries. We look forward to seeing you again in the future and to provide you with another exceptional wine tour with Intimate Wine Tours.
With warm regards,
Tom
