Corey is the best and we highly recommend him for any & all wine tours. He takes the intimidation factor out and provides a top-shelf experience with some great wineries. He knows the ins & outs of Napa and Sonoma and he'll create an itinerary of wineries to visit based on what YOU want and not what other wine tours deliver. He's professional, knowledgeable, and fun to be with all day. Corey can get appointments with the smallest, private wineries to the larger recognizable wineries. He personally knows either the owners or wine makers or host and there's an immediate comfort level when you visit. You definitely need reservations and if you want somebody to customize your trip whether you're a seasoned visitor or if this is your first time.....Corey will take care of you.

My girlfriend booked Corey’s company for my December 26th birthday and we were blown away. Introduced us to three amazing wineries off the beaten path. All three hosts and properties were customized and incredible. Can’t wait to run it back in 2020. Still in awe of the views and hospitality.

We have visited Napa several times previously and last year we found ourselves in a bind when our driver cancelled last minute. Corey stepped in and saved our trip. We once again found ourselves in another sticky situation this year with the Sonoma fires and our planned lodging for the trip. Corey not only reached out and recommended a personal friend who owned an absolutely beautiful home in Napa for us to stay. He scheduled appointments at some of the most outstanding and unique wineries and we met with some of the most amazing people. Experiences that we certainly could not have experienced without Corey. His professionalism and expertise was impressive. His ability to make you feel like a longtime friend made the trip even more memorable. We look forward to our next trip exploring Napa with Corey.

There are moments in life that you don’t want to forget and then there are moments when you want time to stand still....this was a standstill moment! I wanted to do something special for my wife for her 40th birthday. She’s always wanted to go to Napa, but other destinations have trumped it. I have visited Napa several times but never really “experienced” it the way that it should be experienced. A mutual friend told us about Corey and suggested that we should reach out and see if he has some availability. Corey and I talked for three weeks prior to the trip andImmediately hit it off. He asked what we wanted to accomplish - “an epic trip” - that was it. I had the perfect trip in mind BUT he far exceeded our expectations and gave us a trip that we will never forget. We went places you dream of and met the greatest group of people - friendships we created that will last for years to come. You can “go and visit Napa” or you can “go and visit Napa with Corey” - well, I will choose the later any day of the week. Thank you for the perfect trip!!!!!!

Corey is more than a guide, he creates a unique tasting experience in Napa/Sonoma that meets your needs and makes you feel like family throughout the day. Over the last couple of years he has introduced us to world class boutique vineyards where you meet the people, appreciate the land and enjoy great wines. He provided recommendations for dinners and really took care of every aspect of our wine country getaways. I travel extensively and believe Corey to be in a class of his own. His knowledge, his flexibility, his approach to listening to our needs makes the experience one that we always treasure. I recommend him to anyone who is looking to make their Napa trip one they will enjoy and remember forever.
