We booked this tour based on reviews and recommendation from our cottage but were not sure what to expect. We had a great group of people and Greg was an awesome driver and guide. Took us to wineries we would have never found on our own. We learned a lot and had so much fun!

We love having Michael on our team; I'm really glad you were so pleased by his tour! Hopefully you live somewhere condusive to wine shipping. If so, you should be able to phone up any of these small wineries to have more of their wine shipped to you. Not as convenient as bevmo though, I know... I appeciate very much your comments!

It's a fantastic time of year to be in Sonoma, for sure! Bob is really well-acquainted with pretty much all of the wineries in the Sonoma Valley, as well as most of the winery staff and a good many of the owners and winemakers there. Plus, he has an awesome personality, an impressive amount of local knowedge, and great storytelling skills... so he is an ideal person to lead a tour of that region. I'm so glad you enjoyed it so much, Kim; thanks for posting!
