This company is the entire reason I joined Trip Advisor to give reviews. We had booked a trip for some friends as a wedding gift in 2012 through Vin Ambassador (at the recommendation of the Ritz Carlton Half Moon Bay) and our friends raved about Andres. Naturally, when we visited Napa last year, we decided to give them a try as well. I have to admit that I was skeptical; this was my first visit to Napa, and I thought having a sommelier do our driving was a bit unnecessary (not to mention pretentious). I also thought it could be uncomfortable having someone with us all day and was concerned about my limited experience with formal tastings. I could not have been more wrong. Ginevra was with us all day and immediately put me at ease. She was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the wine industry and truly helped us express what we liked and didn't like about our tastings. I can't even begin to tell you how helpful and interesting it was to have someone with her knowledge with us. But perhaps more importantly, she was tons of fun! It was never awkward for her to be with us; instantly it was like she was a friend along for the trip. Andres and Ginevra made our first trip to Napa wonderful and provided a first-rate, personalized experience that we will always treasure. I would highly, highly recommend them and can't wait for our next trip with Vin Ambassadors.
