“I cannot begin to tell you what a great time we had in wine country. It was such a pleasure to go to all these out of the way, private, smaller wineries. The tastings were more intimate and on such a much more personal level than with the bigger vintners. On the morning tour with George Hendry, I learned more about wine in a few hours than I did from the hours of reading I put in on the subject. The few days we spent with you in wine country was overwhelmingly the highlight of our California trip. While we sit back during the rest of the coming year, enjoying with friends all the wine we purchased. Every bottle we open will end up in a conversation of how we managed to find all this wonderful wine. Thanks for the memories.” ~ Aaron, Florida
“Just wanted to drop you line and say thank you for the amazing tour this past weekend! We all had such a wonderful time and I have already recommended to my friends and family that they contact you and take a tour with you. I know I will be needing another tour sometime in the future when my family comes out here to visit me.” ~ Clark Brown
“I am back in New York after after a fantastic weekend in San Francisco. Thank you for giving us such a great Napa Valley experience. We loved the hike, the views, and the tours of the wineries. We really enjoyed the day! I will definitely recommend you to friends that visit the area. Good luck with the rest of your wine writeups!” ~ Michele, New York
“I’m so impressed by the task you are undertaking to do in sharing a comprehensive access to all the many wineries we are lucky to have here in the Valley. I’m amazed how many there are!! It’s an incredible testament to this amazing way of life. Thank you for the style and openness in which you’re approaching it – yours is a significant contribution in communicating the bounty of this valley.” ~ Carissa Mondavi
“David organized a fantastic tour based on the needs and interests of our Career Center staff at Santa Clara University. He is a walking encyclopedia of information about the wineries, the people, the wines, and the history of the Valley. Thanks to his wealth of knowledge and contacts he customized a unique tour with SCU alumni to provide us with diverse perspectives on the wine industry. Having grown up in the area, I know that we would never have had such “behind-the-scenes” insight into the Valley without his tour.” ~ Elizabeth, Santa Clara, California
Dave – Thanks so much for taking us around for 2 days and educating us on all the details on the wineries. You made our vacation so perfect! ~ ~ Debbie
Dave, I wanted to thank you for an amazing weekend of tours! It was a very pleasant and fun experience. I’ve shared with several who may want to utilize your services. ~ Ralonda
My friend and I hired David for a one day tour during our very short trip to Napa this fall. Neither of us had visited before and now I realize how little research we did. (Although we thought we had done some before our visit.) I am so very glad that we chose to spend a day with David. He was a wealth of information and made our experience unforgettable. I felt so privileged to have visited the small boutique wineries, met with the owners or families and tasted such great wines. Thank You David for such a wonderful day! Good luck and best wishes to you.

Dear David, Greetings from Manila, the Philippines. My partner, Ramon B. Arnaiz and I are frequent SF visitors. We would like to be educated further on wines, to heighten our appreciation of Napa’s fine New World red and white wines. We are thinking of an overnight stay in Napa (perhaps Auberge de Soliel or Solage in Carneros) Monday, Feb. 15, take a private tour just us two with you to a few but good wineries. Would this interest you? I await your reply in due course. sincerely, Maria Isabel/Maribel
Maria – I just sent you an email in regards to this with more details. I can do Feb 15th 🙂

What incredible luck to have come across Dave’s site! My husband and I have made a number of trips to the valley, but this was, by far, our most enjoyable day yet. Dave’s vast knowledge of the area is unmatched by any other tour we’ve had. He arranged for us to visit wineries we would not have come across on our own, and it made for such a memorable experience. Dave was prompt, courteous, and generous with his time and expertise. We will be calling Dave on every future visit! Thanks for the memories, Dave!
