What you'll do

We will head out for the more remote parts of the valley. Up on mountains and down the back roads to places that you might never find on your own. I choose wineries with character, whether it’s the people or the place. Something unique and special that makes you think “This is cool!” What you imagine when you picture a Napa Valley wine tasting experience. Properties that you are reluctant to leave because the wine is so good and the people so friendly you could sit there all day. Eat your picnic lunch on a hillside overlooking the valley. Winter months we might eat inside the winery, or do a tasting beside a roaring fire while we watch the rain fall. Sit and converse with the winemaker in their homes. Tour a property in an ATV. Hit golf balls out into a lake surrounded by vineyards. Please note** Tasting fees are not included in the price. Wineries will comp fees with a wine purchase. If you are traveling where purchasing wine is not an option, you may opt to pay the tasting fees. Please note there may be another party on the tour with you. We spend a full day together because there is so much to see. I will pick you up either at the meet spot or at your local Napa Valley lodgings. Pickups outside of Napa Valley are possible for an additional charge.

Karan

Join me on an intimate tour of four wineries. With 35 years of extensive exploration of the Valley, I am sharing my insider tips. I have developed relationships with winemakers at small boutique wineries. These are the hidden gems you will only find off the beaten path. Have a picnic on a terrace overlooking a lake and vineyards. Sit with a winemaker in his converted barn while he busts out his guitar for a sing along. Do barrel tastings and wine blending in a cave. Drink with the winemaker in his living room. My goal is to help make your Napa Valley trip one of the best and most unique experiences you've ever had. Come see why these places are my favorites, and discover these hidden places with me.

Where you'll be

We will be spending the day with my friends! The elevated service provided by winery owners and educators that I know personally and have cultivated relationships with add a special, unique touch to a tasting experience. They are fun, with great atmosphere and a large array of wines to try. They change often so I don't list the names of the places we go. They will most likely be ones you've never heard of.
