My husband and I did a private tour with Katie as part of a 17 day west coast wine road trip and it truly was one of the highlights. Katie worked with our specific wine tastes to create an itinerary that both allowed us to try our favorite varietals in the region as well as try other ones based off our preferences that, based off her sommelier knowledge, she thought we would enjoy. Three of our four stops were directly with the winemakers themselves, with two being in their homes. It was such a great experience and wouldn’t have been possible without her connections and relationships with these places. 11/10 would recommend if you’re in the region.

Thanks so much Kara for the thoughtful review! It was a pleasure meeting you and Jordan and had so much fun showing you around Paso Robles wine country! There are so many other gems that we can go to on your next private tour. Cheers! Katie

Fantastic personalized service by Katie who curated our itinerary based on the feedback we provided. We spent two days with her. She's organized, knowledgeable and very likable. You hire Katie and you get Katie. Her operation is small, and she's very hands on - hence personalized service.

Fortunately we scheduled her 2 months ago because the weekend we were in Paso turned out be when they held their wine festival.

As a well-respected local sommelier, she provided insights to wines, vineyards and general area. So much more than a tour guide.

If you're looking for a wine tour that takes you to the high production wineries where all the tour busses go, Niche is probably not what you're looking for.
We have wine tasted in Paso many times over the years and are pretty familiar with the area, or so we thought. We had asked Katie to take us to some of the smaller production, more intimate wineries and she did not disappoint. We went to 4 wineries that we had never gone in the past.
The 1st was Guyomar, where we sat at the owners dining table and sampled some wines while enjoying the beautiful view from their hilltop home.
Next stop was Niner, a little larger winery with a beautiful tasting room and some really nice wines. Katie had scheduled lunch there which was fantastic.
We finished the afternoon at Rangeland and Willow Creek Wine Collective, both smaller production wineries but with really friendly proprieters. Katie is a sommelier herself and knows the locals so we were able to have a very personal wine tasting experience.
Katie focuses on smaller groups, so if you're looking for a more personal experience, she is the one to tour with.

Katie put together 2 wonderful days of tastings and tours. She has excellent wine knowledge and can really hone in on taking you to interesting and fun wineries.

We were out in the vineyards tasting grapes and talking about pruning and netting and all things wine. She included Kiler Olive Oil which also quite fun and informative.

Wines were great, wineries were great and Katie was great!

Celebrating , in Californias unique Paso Robles wine country. After 5 trips here we have watched the number of wineries grow to over 300 and all of them experimenting. Our visits, katie@nichewinetours.com, were to a mix of very small boutique, and 1 big name.Think a gravel drive and sitting with the owner/winemaker in front of his winery or in one case at his kitchen tableland a lunch at a gorgeous bigger winery. This is certainly a higher end tour and not a minibus day trip.Katie is connected and a pleasure to be with.#L'Aventure, #Dunning, #Guyomar, #Robert Hall, #Chateau Margene, #Hotel Cheval, #Katiebaygebauer

Katie made our first visit to Paso Robles unforgettable! We asked her to show us wineries we wouldn't be likely to find by ourselves, and she did just that! She built a custom schedule to four vineyards. Three of them were family wineries and the wine was excellent at all four. We recommend spending a day with Katie and will definitely utilize Niche Wine Tour again in the future upon our next visit to Paso Robles!

Great day with Katie touring unique wineries in Paso Robles! Katie is very knowledgeable and connected to the Paso Robles wine community. If you want a tour, not just a driver, schedule an afternoon with Katie and Niche Wine Tours. She knows the wines, wineries and the people.
We visited 5 wineries, starting at Le Cuvie with a fantastic food/wine pairing and ended with the laid back Zenaida winery. What a fantastic day.
Thanks!

With input from my wife and I, Katie prepared a wine tasting schedule with several outstanding wineries. She was very personable and even more knowledgeable about the Paso Robles region and the local wineries. We highly recommend Katie. If you schedule an afternoon with her, you will enjoy your time with her and your wine tasting experience!
