This was our first trip to the California wine country. After talking on the phone to discover what type of experience we were seeking, James took care of everything for our day! We visited wineries we never would have discovered on our own. In addition to arranging the day, James knows a lot of information about wine and the region. We really enjoyed talking during our drives from one vineyard to the next. Thanks for a great experience James!

James did a fantastic job planning a day for my family for our first time visiting the region. He's extremely knowledgeable and fun to drive around with. The planning was very thoughtful and gave us a good range of experiences to build on for our next trip. I'd absolutely book another tour the next time I visit.

This was our 2nd time out with James for touring wineries in Sonoma. And it was as good as the first time. He customized the itinerary to meet out goals - we had friends with us that had specific interests. And again - we were introduced to wines we wouldn't have known otherwise. Best part - James is an accomplished sommelier and is able to explain as much as the winery owners (often more) - and gave us great suggestions on how to pair with foods. My only recommendation - is be moderate in your plans - three wineries with several glasses at each being tasted is plenty of wine for one day! James - thank you - we have referred others to you in the past who have also raved about their day. We will continue to send folks your way!!

Beth, Always a pleasure to show you guys some new stuff and areas. I always appreciate good 'students' for my passion of food & wine. And to your point, once you've been here a few times you realize that 3 nice relaxing stops and lunch allows you to enjoy the day through the last place. I look forward to the next adventure with you and/or your guests.

This is my third time touring with James and it’s consistently fabulous. Actually the better James gets to know me and my tastes the better the tours become, tailored to meet my taste and with a few new things to try. While I would call myself a cab and chard girl James introduced me to some fabulous Pino’s and sauv blancs. We visited 8 vineyards and I bought from 6. I’ll def be back touring with James. I can’t recommend him enough. He knows the area the vineyards, the wines and the food It doesn’t get much better than that

Pat, Thank you for your response and kind words. Yes, we did branch you out a bit with some alternative varieties beyond your norm, but that is the idea with us is to discover new things you like. As we like to say, there are only three kinds of wines in the world - 1) wines you like, 2) wines you don't like, 3) wines you've never had or experienced. Throw in the food & wine pairing ellement and it's another ballgame as well. Glad you enjoyed getting out of your comfort zone...cheers!

Flex Wine Tours came recommended to me by a friend, as it was only going to be two in my party. I didn't want to get crammed into a sweaty bus with a ton of other people I didn't know. I mean, how do I know who can handle their wine and who we will have to pull over for? More people, more issues. No thanks! Flex can accommodate larger groups, but I loved that we had the flexibility of it just being us two. First of all, James made the reservation process so simple. Just a quick review of our preferences, a small deposit, and about a week prior you're sent an itinerary and a list of guidelines. Easy peasy! I never felt like I wasn't sure what I was getting into. On the actual day, Diane picked my friend and I up at the Vallejo Ferry and off we went. I knew right away I would like her. Very friendly, classy, and knowledgeable about the area. We ran into unexpected traffic which screwed up our itinerary and she handled it like a champ. She showed us 3 wineries, all different vibes, but all perfect for us. It was like they knew our perfect fit. She took us down back roads, and told us the history of the area, and grabbed a delicious deli lunch for us at a great place in CUTE little Yountville. Diane kept us on schedule, and dropped us off at a great little place for a bite to eat at the end of the day. The wineries themselves were brilliant, but the experience we had with Flex Wine Tours sealed the deal and I am a fan for life. You won't regret using them!

From what I heard it did sound like you guys had a great 'girls day' and a great fit for Diane. I know in our previous discussions you really wanted the time to reconnect with your friend from afar so we specifically designed the day as such. Part of what we do different is to really listen to the guest and curate the day to match the profile of the guests expectations beyond just good wines. We appreciate you taking the time to post such a nice review. All the best in your future travels!
