Through Kent's diligence with his emails, we managed to get a last minute booking on a 5-hour tour with another couple. Kent is a very flexible and informative guide, and took us to an interesting selection of wineries, covering a range of wine styles and grapes, including: Gehringer, Hester Creek, Tinhorn Creek, and Black Hills. We really enjoyed the day,... More

Nothing special, this is your standard wine tour. Kent was friendly and polite, and mostly stayed out of the way. This wine tour caters to everyone, with stops at both large (popular) wineries, as well as small estate wineries (by request). Good accessible price point, which is great if you just want to be driven around from winery to winery... More

The driver was very polite and helpful. We saw five wineries in one morning. At each winery you are escorted in, and you do a typical wine tasting by the helpful winery staff. The wineries varied a great deal in quality of both the facilities and wine. No actual disappointments, one great find, and one where I wasn't expecting much,... More

Just back from our 3rd tour with Kent! This year we were with 2 other couples, which was different but turned out to be great. Kent is always on time, friendly and very informative. He took us to some great new wineries & some old favorites. I would highly recommend this tour to all wine lovers.
