I cannot say enough good things about this tour! Bryan is absolutely fantastic and from the minute we called to schedule, he showed such enthusiasm and class. Our favorite spots of the day were Alma Rosa, Demetria and Presidio's tasting room. Demetria was especially beautiful and we enjoyed a fantastic lunch laughing, drinking great wine & enjoying the live music. Being from Omaha, we especially LOVED how Alexander Payne's film was incorporated into the tour! This was a charming wine tour to say the least, and in our opinion, a must while visiting the area!!!

My wife and my Grad Student daughter had a lovely time today with Brian. He was great in the lead up to the tour, very solicitous and on the spot with lunch selection and pick up. He was on time for the pick up and his van is comfortable with a TV for showing clips of the Sideways movie where we toured. He explained the tour as we began, had a nice lecture ready about geography as it relates to wine prodution and set up the trip nicely. We went to two vineyards and one wine tasting store in the amazing little community Los Alevos where each storefront is a wine tasting store front. The vineyards were all lovely, the wine tasting was great fun and Brian had a strong background knowledge to answer all our questions about the planting, growing and bottling process. WE even asked him about the working conditions of the pickers and he went online and got us great information about the certification process that includes social equity standards. He learned from this as did we. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour for a great day in the wine country.

We'd give a 4.5 rating if allowed. We enjoyed a lovely day (despite driving in and out of June gloom fog) visiting 3 tasting rooms and being educated by our guide Christa & the pros at each site. By far our favorite tasting was at Demetria -- best wine & truly beautiful site. It would be even better if the winery actually provided a tour of the facility at that site.

This is more than a 5 star tour, we loved it!!!!! We got picked up from our hotel on time and we driven to 3 wineries. Brian, the owner/driver, knew so much about wine and he was very passionate about what he does. Even though it was our first wine tour, he explained everything clearly to everyone and took us to great wineries. At first, I thought he should have taken us to more wineries, but he knows what he's doing. He knows how to balance the taste, time, and comfort for everyone.

The wines were great, his provided lunch was great, and the overall day was so memorable. We loved the idea of sustainable wines. Brian had a great relationship with the wineries which made the experience even better. Thanks!!!!

So we never did a tour before! Reviews removed suspecion but the proof was in the tour. You do not have to be a wine snob or know anything about wines to enyoy Bryan's educational, unpretentious, delicious and love of vine filled tour.
Wroth every penny. And his personal attention to every detail is a welcome surprise.
Beauty is evident in the relationsihip he and the growers share not only for the wine but for the land,the vines and miracle of mother nature. We are in! Bryan turned us on to wine tours with his tour. We will be back. Bob and Marta
