We have just completed our 5th trip with Lonnie. Pretty much says it all, doesn't it? :)
As usual, Lonnie pre-selected 12 spectacular new places for us visit over the course of three days. Every new winery is intimate and personal and we are treated like VIP's, because we are
with Lonnie. You will never understand the true spirit of the Valley if you don't tour with Lonnie.
He is a friend, a true gentleman and provides old-world service. Relax and enjoy, let somebody else plan your day and drive you too!

Lonnie is the best out there. He gave us one of the best days of our week-long trip to wine country. Everything was seamless and we visited some great wineries that we never would have found without Lonnie. It was clear that Lonnie loves what he does, and that he is loved by local winemakers. As others have said, he also provides a DELICIOUS lunch. Honestly, my mom, sister and I can't stop talking about the cookies (and sandwiches).

I don't need to go on because the other reviewers really have said it all. You will not regret doing your tour with Lonnie.

Thanks Lonnie!!

Lonnie guided our group of 4 on a tour of the Alexander Valley and Russian River Valley in October 2012. We had a fantastic time. We knew very little about the region, but knew we wanted to taste some great Zinfandels, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. He took the time to understand what we were looking to get out of the day and then tailored the experience accordingly. He was very interesting to talk with, he has a deep knowledge of the region and was happy to share stories. He knows a lot a out both Napa and Sonoma and I'd recommend hiring him as he'll help you find the places suited to your tastes, and he's a good driver too.

We had our second trip with Lonnie recently and he continually delivers the unexpected regarding where you go and who you meet when you are there. he has connections all over the valley and can get you into places that just would not happen otherwise. plus he adds a lot of flexibility to the schedule if necessary as things change (i.e., lonnie, you wore us out. we need to eat dinner earlier, so we can go to bed!!). and, of course, he has the good stories to go with the places you arrive at since he grew up in the area. Can't go wrong with Lonnie!!!

Booking Lonnie to be our driver was hands down the greatest decision my husband and I made before coming to Sonoma/Napa! Lonnie was full of knowledge and fun facts that I am positive we would have never heard any where else. He also knows all of the ins and outs of the area. We completely left all of the decisions on where to go up to Lonnie and were 100% satisfied every time. My husband and I are already thinking ahead to our next trip to the wine country and there is absolutely NO question that we would be asking for Lonnie's services again!
