“Tremendous Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

From our initial and prompt phone call with Mike to discuss what we were looking for, to the thorough and detailed correspondences between that call and our arrival, Bon Vivant provided excellent and personalized service and attention. Don was fabulous as our host in arriving on time with a comfortable ride and an endless knowledge base of the region and its wines. He was engaging and looked after our every need. He got us to where we wanted to go and even to a few hidden gems!! The experience was everything we were looking for. We can't wait to come back to look Mike and Don up once again and explore the region together! Guaranteed good time, that's for sure! Thanks guys and keep up the good work!! We'll hopefully see you again soon!!

“Rainy and Enjoyable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2014

We booked a small, private tour for a group of 4 with a limited amount of time. Communication with Bon Vivant was excellent beforehand and they went out of their way to make last minute changes for us. We were picked up at our hotel in downtown Seattle and taken by Michael out to the Woodinville area. Interesting facts were pointed out along the drive being new to the area. Lunch was in order and then we just had time for 2 wineries, but it was perfect! We started at Long Shadows and the tasting room was busy, but thankfully we had Michael to tell us a little more about the location and wines we were tasting. His knowledge is deep, yet he feels out your own wine knowledge and caters that to your experience. He will tell you as much or as little as you want to know - just ask! Our second stop was at Elevations in the warehouse district - two totally different experiences at each stop, but fun was had by all! We were dropped off back at the hotel doorstop and not having to drive in downpours on unfamiliar highways was definitely a bonus. We hope to use Bon Vivant again in the future! We know there are other wine experts on these tours, but we hope to have Michael if ever go again! Hugs!

“Sip and Learn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Spent a delightful afternoon with my wife and a friend touring wineries in Woodinville with this company. Don, the tour leader, was very knowledgeable about wines and chose the sites visited to match our interests. Don gave us a preview of each winery before we arrived so we knew a bit about the wines we would be tasting. It is an added plus to tour with a guide who can answer your questions and help you learn more about wine, whatever your level of expertise.

“Great Experience and Value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

My husband and I traveled to Seattle for the first time for Valentines Day and to celebrate my birthday. We love wine and live near Napa so we wanted to check out the Washington wine region. I contacted Bon Vivant about 3 weeks before our trip and received excellent customer service from start to finish. Michael who booked the tour provided detailed information on what to expect and returned my calls and emails promptly. On the day of our tour, our guide Don remembered it was my birthday and also brought roses for all the women for Valentines Day. Don was very knowledgeable in all areas of wine and knew all the winery makers well. Don did a good job at making sure we visited wineries that met everyone's tastes. It was evident that Bon Vivant is respected in the region and passionate about the service they provide. I would highly recommend this company and felt as though the wine tour was a great value for the price.

“What a way to spend a day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Together with my wife and a friend, we enjoyed a great day out in Woodenville with Don. A comfortable ride from Downtown, visits to some great and very different wineries, nice lunch at Purple and we returned home with several bottles of wine as mementos of the day! We're fortunate to have an area like this so close to Seattle and I'd highly recommend seeing it with Bon Vivant!
