Fred made the day so fun and informative. Not a "canned" tour. Just a local guy who knows wine, food, and the area. We didn't have to drive. Just kicked back and let Fred take care of it all. I would definitely do it again.

We felt lucky to find Fred and A Nose for Wine Tours on TripAdvisor. We booked a last minute trip to Portland and Willamette Valley and couldn't have been happier with the day we spent with Fred. We had never been to the area and after assessing our interests Fred took us to four incredible off the beaten path wineries producing outstanding Pinot Noirs and other wines. Fred is well respected in the wine industry, incredibly knowledgeable about wine and Willamette Valley and gave us an educational tour beyond our expectations not to mention just an all-around fun day with him. We wanted to book a second day of touring with Fred but he was unavailable. He went out of his way to arrange another guide for us and selected four more outstanding wineries for us. We highly recommend Fred!

Marie was a delight to spend the day with. Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable about wine, but she has a great personality and close relationships with many of the winery owners. She created a personalized tour for us based on our interests, including several tasting rooms we never would have known about or gotten into on our own. Highly recommend using Marie for a great day in the Willamette Valley!

This was our first visit to the area so we wanted to learn about the region and the winemakers. Fred took us to four wineries that we thoroughly enjoyed. One of them was a very unique experience where we sat down with the winery owners as if you invited your neighbors over to chat. What a great experience we had walking through the vineyard learning about the grapes and the wine making process. We would have never found a gem like this without some inside knowledge, which is what Fred provides. If you want a serious wine tour, I would highly recommend A Nose for Wine. We learned a great deal about the area and found some great wines. Fred was personable, friendly, and can provide you with some great insights about the area.
