“Amazing Honeymoon Experience”
Reviewed 15 September 2008

Sid has given my husband and I a most memorable and unique experience for our honeymoon. Our first day in Healdsburg, we went on our own to go wine tasting in Dry Creek Valley. It was great fun. The next day, however, we had our trip with Sid to Alexander Valley where he took us to several outstanding wineries. These were places where he made special appointments just for us. Each place was so unique and different from the next. At each stop, we were taken around the vineyard, caves, and shown some of the process of wine making. While we were immersed in all of this education, Sid was taking photos of us with our camera and he takes great shots! At the end, Sid took us to a vineyard with a deck under a canopy of trees where a vase of flowers, wine and and picnic table was awaiting us. I couldn't believe my eyes. The view was fantastic and we couldn't have asked for anything more. This was the most memorable time of our 8-day honeymoon. Thank you Sid!

“"It is all about the service"”
Reviewed 8 July 2008

The slogan on Sid Sadeghian's business card says, "It is all about the service" --- and we are delighted to report that he personifies this sentiment. We had exchanged emails before our trip, telling him what we hoped to experience (unique, small wineries; mostly reds; quality over quanity, and a nice spot for a picnic somewhere along the way). Sid took us to Lancaster for their unique cave, Medlock-Ames for their hollistic approach to substainable farming and wine production, a great talk with the owner of Wilson-Fleming on "taking what the vineyard gives us" (and that would be the best cabernet of the trip), and a candlelit tasting with the owner of Garden Creek. I highly recommend that you let Sid and Healdsburg Wine Tours craft a personalized tour for your visit to Sonoma wine country.

“highly recommend”
Reviewed 12 May 2008

Told Sid two things: one, we were familiar with the area and two, that I planned on proposing the evening before our wine tour. He took us to places we had never been to before, all were good and uncrowded. Each winery was expecting us and at least acted as if they were treating us as special since we were just engaged. This truly did make my fiancee feel special.

He offered to use our camera and took candid pictures throughout the day. It was so nice to have such a memorable weekend captured on film (with both of us in the photos!).

Sid truly understands service. He anticipated all our needs/wants whether we were aware of them or not. He was there when we wanted him invisible when we didn't. He has a true insiders knowledge of the area (seems to know everyone). He was extremely gracious and professional.

Highly recommend.

“The only way to see wine country!”
Reviewed 22 April 2008

Our Healdsburg Wine Tour was absolutely the perfect way to see wine country! Sid was our host and is a delight! His knowledge of the gems of wine country made our day spectacular. With scheduled private tours and tastings...there was no need to deal with crowds. Up close and personal ...we had a fabulous time and would highly recommend Sid and Healdsburg Wine Tours. We will be back!!!

This was our first wine tour, and we will never use anyone else! Sid was amazing! The tour started out with a party of 2 and grew to 6 of us... Sid took it in stride & drove our SUV so we could all be accommodated. The communication prior was great via email. He gave suggestions, and asked if we had any of our own. He sent a 'plan' but was so flexible during our trip, if was NO pressure. He gently guided us along & was so informative & friendly…. it was really a pleasure. I left my jacket at one of the wineries and between the winemaker and Sid, it was delivered back to be before we even returned to our room! What a unique experience, actually sitting with the wine makers (in their backyards!) we will definitely be using his services again. Hopefully SOONER rather than later! :)
