Why Elite Napa Tours? The Ultimate in Access!

Every moment is planned for your ease and luxury. Every detail is planned so that you have the ultimate experience.

Exclusivity

I have taken passionate wine lovers and collectors from around the world to see the best wineries of Napa, including the established cult wines such as Harlan and Colgin but also newer elite wineries such as Hourglass and Vineyard 29. We have also visited established wineries such as Judgement of Paris winners Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and Chateau Montelena.
While many wineries, even at the high end, have hospitality programs that allow access to many wines, our visits to wineries are accentuated by additional features not standardly given to guests. For example, meeting with key personnel such as winemakers and owners (i.e. Cathy Corison at Corison). Or enhancing the tasting of the wines with extra “off the list” library wines to enable insight as to longevity of the wines.

Dining

Gastronomy is a high priority for any visit to Napa. Past tours have including elegant tables for 8 at restaurants like Redd and Bottega, but we have also arranged the private dining room at Auberge du Soleil for parties up to 15!

Master Guide

As a Master of Wine and as an expert on Napa, I will give you the ultimate wine experience. In addition to taking care of all the details, I will guide you personally to visits at the best and most exclusive wineries in Napa.
Giving you insights into each of the wineries before we arrive, and more insight while we are visiting ….

Privacy

Rest assured that you will not be fighting for a space at the tasting counter – all winery visits are private for your group and personalized to your desires.
In addition, if you (or your security team) request private access to wineries, away from prying eyes, this can be arranged.

Transportation

Only the best luxury vehicles are used, from the airport transfers to the touring around of Napa Valley. Typically this is a Mercedes Sprinter van with limo style seating, but depending on your group size this can be adjusted to a sedan or to a larger vehicle.

Customization


Customization is the goal! I want to provide you with an experience that matches your pace and desires. Be assured that this will be the ultimate insider’s tour of Napa.
We can also hold special tastings outside the winery setting. Want to taste a vertical of Screaming Eagle? That’s possible!

Costs


Costs vary, depending on length of your visit, number of people, mode of transportation and such. Contact me and I’m confident we can sort out a cost that will ensure an exclusive and elegant tour!
