About Napa Sonoma Wine Guy

Having run wine programs for multiple restaurants since 1978 and selling millions of dollars (based on pricing from the 1970's & 80's) in wine, I bring experience, knowledge, and passion to every wine tour. Passion driven is both the motto and practice.

Our goal is to introduce clients to high-qualityWinery Garden wines, priced below the Napa Valley and Sonoma wine country "normal pricing structure." This is very different from the way the wine tour industry tends to operate. Often the wineries chosen are well known, good quality, but not that special in the big picture. Most wine tour companies (both large corporate type and small Intimate, Boutique companies) end up taking the cookie-cutter approach that leads all of them to the same wineries over and over. Kickbacks are a major factor contributing to this practice, as unfortunate as that is! I do not do cookie-cutter tours, nor is the company swayed by kickback offers. Think about it, cookies go with milk, not wine!

All domain names represent the same company with the same vision based upon the love of both great food and wines.

The intent is to ensure that the personal wine Gardenscountry experience of Napa Valley and Sonoma will be filled with discovery. Many clients have confirmed that they much prefer the approach of "off-the-grid" wine tours. One of the initial challenges was to build a list of high-quality wineries that would be available for an appointment, often on short notice.

Although no one can always get in without adequate lead time, being a "regular" means Napa Sonoma Wine Guy will have some pull! Planning ahead is always advised though. Please confer with Napa Sonoma Wine Guy so that your itinerary is properly set up in advance. The general rule is to limit groups to six or fewer, but there are exceptions.

Come enjoy, whether as an individual or as part of a group of friends and or family.  Some clients have a history of returning for Paré Tour service two to four times annually. Try Napa Sonoma Wine Guy once, and join the many also as a repeat client. We look forward to being of service during the next visit to the wine country of Northern California.
