I booked a wine tour with Lonnie based off the previous tripadvisor reviews and I'm so glad I did. We were completely impressed and enjoyed the day immensely. Lonnie was able to take us to places we would have never known about and where we were able to have private tastings in 2 of the vineyards. This alone made us feel completely special and like we were getting a different Napa experience than majority of the other tourists. He is a wealth of knowledge and we learned so much from our visit. We will be back and when we return, Lonnie will be the first person on our list to book with again. Next time we will let Lonnie hand pick all of the vineyards we visit instead of us adding in one of our choice like we did last time. The only disappointment of the tour was the vineyard we had picked so now we know better ;) The lunch option he provided was extremely tasty as well...lots of food so hopefully you are hungry!

We visited Napa Valley for the first time on our honeymoon last week. We were interested in visiting some of the winemakers and vineyards that produce the wine that we collect. We were given Lonnie's name by the owners of the bed and breakfast that we stayed at (also an amazing experience!) Lonnie was above and beyond all expectations. He was professional, timely and very informative about the local wine industry. He introduced us to people and wineries that we would not have been able to access without him. It was a excellent introduction to the area and to the wines of Napa. We had a fabulous time and are already planning our next visit, which will include more time with Lonnie. He is a gem!

We spent a great day with Lonnie touring the Sonoma Valley wineries. Lonnie selected 4 great venues and an even better dining experience. He picked us up at our hotel in San Francisco and provided a very comfortable trip to and from the valley. He is extremely knowledgeable about the wine making process and the wineries. He chose wineries off the beaten path so we felt extra special at these wineries. In fact, at one winery, we were the only people being given the tour. But at most of the wineries, we were in a very small and intimate group. Quite an experience. I highly recommend Lonnie.

Lonnie is the best! Definitely was able to find me and my wife the wineries which were perfect for us to enjoy on our honeymoon. Without a doubt the highlight of our time in the valley, and something we can't wait to return for on our next visit to the area. Based on your wine interests, budget, time availability, or specific area--I guarantee that Lonnie could find you exactly what you're looking for.

We had such an enjoyable day with Lonnie. He is 2nd generation Napa Valley so he provided us with excellent history and insight during our tour. We were also able to go to several boutique wineries because of his personal relationship with the owners/winemakers. He even offered to ship our wine home through Buffalo Shipping company! I cannot say enough good things about him or his service. We really enjoyed spending the day with him and we plan to use him again when we take our next trip!
