Stan Knight, owner and driver for Knight Wine Tours is a excellent guide through the entire Napa Valley region! He is very knowledgable and has lived in the area for 20+ years. His relaxed and laid-back yet professional personality is a great fit for his career and great to be around. I planned an ambitious wine tasting tour of 7 wineries in on day, and Stan was not only up for it, but drove us, and made our trip run smoothly and on-time. When we had a slight gap between tastings, he took us to a smaller, lesser-known vineyard (Tres Sabores) for a tasting and farm tour! Such a personal, unique experience that I would have never found myself, not even with hours more of research. We liked Stan SO much that we asked him to drive us the following day, and for him to plan the route. Thankfully he was free and willing to put together a nearly fully-day schedule for us. Our 2nd consecutive day with Stan was fantastic-- he knew our taste in wine from day 1 and took us to some really special places.
His car contains a cooler so you can bring a picnic lunch along, and the water bottles, breadsticks and chocolate snacks were great to keep us moving en-route to the next locale.
He has great lunch suggestions, as well as other wineries you might like to visit.
After purchasing wine during our 3 day trip to Napa we knew we needed to ship wine home, but didn't know where to go, or when, as our trip ran into New Year's Day.
Stan collected all of our wines after day 2, and shipped them to us on Jan 2nd, when the shipping stores/companies were open again. Our wine arrived on time (specified in an email from Stan and info from the shipper) and in perfect condition.
We can't wait to get back to Napa/Yountville/St. Helena so that we can take more wine tours with Stan!
