Born and raised in Napa, I didn't believe I needed any assistance in planning my trip "home". It was, however, the first time I was hiring a driver, so I asked my friends and family in the industry who they recommended, and unanimously, it was Barry. From the first email exchange, I knew he was my guy. I emailed him my itinerary and he very politely asked if he could offer a few suggestions.
All I can say is that it was my best trip to Napa..ever. My family owns Whetstone(not to be missed), and I come home several times a year, so I feel like I have the insiders edge, but Barry introduced me to gems I would not have found on my own.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I can say that our entire group looked forward to our day with Barry and what he had up his sleeve.

Barry is a master of his profession and handled every detail with charm, humor and wit.
He is full of historical knowledge and answered all our questions while not overwhelming us with his presence.

There is not one suggestion or comment I could think of to improve the experience. Barry, you nailed it, and I just hope you're not to busy to drive us on our next trip home in July!

What a blast! Barry made the trip very personal and extremely fun. My wife and myself are (where ) not big wine fans but Barry took us to the wineries that helped us to understand in a very fun way. Thanks for the day converted Colorado couple.

Welcoming, inviting, no stress. They just took care of everything so all we had to do was enjoy the day. I didn't have to think about anything other than being with my family and friends and taking in all that Napa has to offer! Loved the inside tidbits about the towns, shopping, restaurants and vineyards. Carrie and Barry were simply wonderful. They made an already special day for me that much more special!!

Can't speak enough about the level of concierge and perfection! Barry and Carrie will set it and you forget it! Pay the money and be pampered by the valleys best! Tell them your flavor profile and price point and let them do their magic! They will blow your mind with places you have never heard of and far better wines than the cattle calls of national brands!
