A fantastic way to visit wineries with peace of mind. Sharon was more than just a driver but provided real valet service. She took us at our motel on time, shared interesting information about Sonoma, took care of the lunch while we were spending time at the tastings. made reservations at few wineries for us, had great discussions like she was part of the group and all that contributed to make the day trip very enjoyable. Sharon is very knowledgeable and she adapted our itinerary based on the type of wineries we wanted to visit. I highly recommend everyone to book with VOTM. Give you key car and enjoy the landscape in the backseat without any worries.

This was the second time we have used Sharon and her company and it's the easiest and best decision we made on our trip to Sonoma. Sharon quite literally knows everything about the Napa/Sonoma area and everyone knows her wherever you go and she is highly respected. We had Sharon drive our rental car for 2 days and Greg with her company drove it another. Both are whole vaults of knowledge you would not otherwise get.

Sharon led us to the small boutique wineries with intimate tastings that we would never have known about nor could we have gotten into without Sharon's relationships. She knows every road and every winery there and the history of everything you pass without having to use a GPS. Every single one of her recommendations were absolutely on point. In fact, the only wineries we did not like were the ones we picked ourselves that Sharon did not recommend. We quickly learned to "just trust Sharon!" Greg was also such a great resource. He booked us a tasting without us even knowing it saying just to trust him and that we would like it. That one ended up being our favorite wine of the entire trip.

Both Sharon and Greg are an absolute pleasure to be around. Fun, informative, easy going. Not only do they know their wineries, they know the places to eat, the things to do, the best times to do them, etc so their help extends far after they drop you off each day. You get to spend hours each day with the most knowledgeable people of the whole area and they love sharing that knowledge with you, but they are never intrusive or pushy. They are just there when you need them, but let you enjoy the experiences on your own. They were on time showing up at our door at the exact time they said each day.

Look, wine country can be an intimidating place. There are a lot of amazing wineries to choose from and a lot of not so great ones are in that mix. It's very difficult to find the right ones without help. You can waste a lot of money and time if you choose the wrong ones or go in blind. That's where Sharon and her company come in. "Driver" doesn't describe what they do at all. Yes, they drive you safely, but you get intimate knowledge, relationships, and insider info that no book or web site can possibly give you.

Trust me. You are booking a vacation and it's supposed to be relaxing and fun and not stressful to prepare for. Do yourself a favor and book with Sharon and her team. It's the only way you can guarantee you will get that relaxation and fun. Put your GPS phone down and just enjoy the knowledge filled ride. And for goodness' sake, "Just trust Sharon."

I have made multiple trips to Napa/ Sonoma and getting around for wine tasting can be stressful, as well as less fun (and less tasting!) for the driver... Sharon and Colleen will drive your car for you and meet u at your residence! This is much less expensive than renting a limo or car service and we receive personalized service, suggestions, help with planning, and more, depending on your individual needs. This is the second trip we have used this service and wouldn’t do it any other way!! And Sharon and Colleen are so personable as well as professional!! Recommend them strongly!!!👍😊

I have apparently been blacklisted from all of wine country after trying to work with this woman.

Can’t speak to this woman’s knowledge, because we unfortunately had to cancel our trip due to family scheduling issues. I let her know 8 days out, and she requested a $100 cancellation fee for the two emails she sent “building the itinerary”. It was on us to schedule the actual winery visits directly.

When I hadn’t answered her within 12 hours, she tracked me down on Venmo and requested $100. At that point, I felt harassed and let her know in a very professional way that I wouldn’t be sending her the $100. Because from my perspective, all she did was email me a list of wineries that I should call and book with. Her response was to mom shame me. Said a few other choice Karen-esque things too.

Sharon is a genius and guided us for an exceptional trip! Her approach from having us complete a survey and then doing a couple of phone calls to reserve the ideal wineries for two days of tours was the best way to navigate the overwhelming number of wineries in Sonoma County. Her knowledge and experience make her the ideal wine tour guide because she individualises the experience. We had Colleen on the second day and while we enjoyed our driver for day one, Colleen was just spectacular, perfect in every way. The wineries were all wonderful and the way Sharon had us book them worked exactly right. Sharon also gave us a few suggestions for our other days in the area and we did every single one and she was spot on for those as well.

Sharon was out of this world. She helped me every step of the way and I knew nothing about wine or the area. She help me plan while navigating though the fires progress with updates. This was a very special occasion our first anniversary...and I would not have been able to plan this without her! Our day was filled with wineries that fit our style. Amapola Creek was our first stop and we we received lots of education on wines and many aspects of tastings. We absolutely loved the small feel of Little Family and VJB was such amazing food and wine. Mayo had a great tasting and the quaint feel was a prefect end to our tour. Sharon took such good care of us and it was such a relief to have someone who took care of you like family. Our experience wouldn't have been the same without her. I would highly recommend Sharon for your tip to California. She has great taste in places and her knowledge of the history of area is amazing. Her service is above an beyond.

I have used this company multiple times and they are fantastic! We went wine tasting and it's so nice to not have to stress about transportation. So convenient that they drive your car and come get you at your place. They are so kind, courteous and have offered some great recommendations to other wineries as well. I highly recommend them

We had the most wonderful experience with Sharon and Leslie driving us to vineyards in Napa and the Russian River Valley. Sharon’s expertise and recommendations were spot on and we loved the vineyards she took us to. She was readily available for all communication and planning our trip with her was easy! Having a driver allowed us to truly enjoy the wine. I would highly recommend Valet of the Moon to anyone heading to the area and hopefully we will get back someday and use them again!

What a great day! My mom, sister and I booked with Valet of the Moon for a day of touring wineries... so glad we did!! I had great communication before our tour. She did a fantastic job of getting an idea of what we were looking to do and formulating a plan for us. It was wonderful not having to worry about planning the day of driving to and from different wineries- there are so many that I wouldn’t have known where to start. The day was planned perfectly, yet didn’t feel like we couldn’t make a change had we wanted to. Excellent guide, great driver, made sure we were all comfortable and enjoying our day. We would HIGHLY recommend them!!

This was our 3rd time using Sharon and Colleen. As always, the wineries chosen and the service delivered was more than we could have hoped for. Lots of fun. Easy going experience. Won't ever go to Napa and not use them.
