In September 2012, my wife and I had the pleasure of touring the Napa Valley with Sal Maffettone of Beau Wine Tours. Sal took us to some great places, and is very educated about the winemaking process. We learned so much that day! The wineries we went to were probably not the same ones we would have chosen on our own (smaller, family-owned, more out of the way wineries.) This was definitely a positive! Sal seemed to have great relationships with the owners & employees of those places, and we were treated well wherever we went. He was fun to spend the day with, and even gave us some advice about restaurant choices, etc. for the rest of our week. I'd definitely recommend Sal and the Beau Wine Tour.

Just returned from a wonderful day and tour of the Napa valley. Paul Potocky, our guide provided us with a weath of information both on the wine region and some of the history of the area which made our visits to the wineries very special. Beau wine tours asked our preferences and Paul delivered with tastings at some of the greatest wineries that perfectly matched what we were looking for. Can't say enough about how great our day was including the picnic lunch while overlooking the vineyard. If you want the best private tour call Beau and ask for Paul Potocky for your guide!

We were five girls from Wyoming that had never been to Napa Valley and Christine whom i booked the wine tour with really pointed me in the direction that we wanted as far as style of vehicle and what would be the best days to go. I had such a good experience with Christine booking our wine tour, that I decided to have Beau also do our shuttle to and from the airport to our hotel in Fisherman's Wharf. Will was going to be our driver for the wine tour and also was who picked us up at the airport! He pointed out and gave us so much information on many different sights on the way to our hotel that we felt we were already on a tour! He took the long way to our hotel just so we could get in more sights! (shhh don't tell the owner! ;-)) We then went to all of our dental meetings and then met up with Will again on a Monday and he took us to some of the most fun wineries. We talked before hand about what we wanted and he did a great job taking us the the wineries that were more our style. We had a Great lunch at a location he chose then off to more wineries!! I would recommend this company to anyone heading to the San Fran area or Napa/Sonoma Valley. Ask for Will he really pampered us ladies!!

I used their services in towards in October of 2012, This decision was based on the comments from Trip Advisor. Most of the comments gave wonderful reviews of the driver which gave us very high expectations. Even though our driver was very nice, when I got in the car he expained to me about tips at the end of the trip and what the normal hour rate was. We were the first clients he picked up and did not tell the others the same thing. The driver owned a small vineyard and appeared to be in a hurry to get home due to rain on the grapes. At one of the stops he did not bother to come inside and we ended up having to go to another vineyard. I would use this company again, but I would want to know something about the driver prior to confirming as ours did not meet expectations. On a postive note he took us to some very nice places. A better driver would have received a better tip, when you read the other comments you can see that the driver can make all the difference in the quality of the tour

Steve Totty was our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the vineyards and wine-making process. He planned the itinerary and took us to some very nice appointment-only vineyards. Unless you really want to see a certain vineyard, let him plan the day. He was pleasant and easygoing - we had a great day.
