Enjoyable and informative day, John introduced us to various small family owned wineries which all had a great product, unavailable outside the region. John curtailed the tour to our individual tastes, which were varied in our small group of four. I went with my 22 year old daughter and we enjoyed the day and highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in having fun while learning wine facts, about local wineries along with history of the region.

This was a great experience from beginning to end. My wife did some research before we left for our trip and set up an all day wine tour with this company. Vicki did a great job of giving her the details and our day was booked, along with 3 others in our party.
John was our driver for the day and created a fun, informative experience for everyone. We've done several wine tours over the years, but this one ranked up among the top. I would recommend this to anyone staying in the South Lake Tahoe area, it's a fabulous way to spend the day. The minimum requirement is 4 people, not sure what the max is, but we had 5 seated comfortably. Lunch was provided at a local restaurant/bar as part of the fee, with a nice variety of food options. They pick up and drop off in the same location in South Lake Tahoe, and it is all day, so make sure your calendar is clear. Also, at $110 per person, I wouldn't say it's cheap, but all of the tasting fees are included, and you don't have to worry about driving back over a mountain after sampling all day!

John provided us with an amazing wine tour experience. He shared his knowledge of the area, the types of grapes grown and the myriad of wineries in the area. He made the tour unique to us based on our wine tastes. What was even more amazing was that my travel mate is not a big wine drinker (like me) so we did a short side trip to an olive oil store for another truly wonderful tasting experience. Elton John, you rock!

I would highly recommend this trip as the experience is not just about wine, but the area and the amazing vista.

John was very informative and entertaining throughout the day. We discussed the tastes of our group on the ride out of Tahoe. He listened well and directed our tour to the wineries which reflected the taste of our group. Highly recommended.

We started the day hoping that we could get enough red wines to keep us happy, and we were very impressed with the wineries that we visited and the assortment of red wines. The whole day was great. We visitied two wineries before lunch, and the lunch was at a small diner. The lunch choices were varied, and the lunch was unexpectedly good for the cost of the tour. After lunch, we visited two other wineries. Be prepared to get all the wine tastings that you want for the day. We ended up buying three cases of wine. We generally go to Napa and Sonoma for our wine tastings. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of the wines and the family approach of the wineries. To top off the day, John, our guide, was very knowledgeable about both the wines in the areas as will as Tahoe itself. We will definately do this tour again tne next time we are in the Tahoe area.
