Everything about this wine tour was phenomenal. The booking process was a breeze -- Bryan responded to phone calls and emails right away, and when the number in our group changed at the last minute, he accommodated us with no issues. There ended up being 8 of us, so he arranged for us to have a van all to ourselves. And HE was our tour guide! He picked us up from the hotel right and took us to four spectacular wineries. He has asked us to send him our wine preferences before the trip, so I felt like the tour was really tailored to us. The selection was varied enough to give us a real feel for the valley, and his excellent relationships with the winemakers make for very personalized . Ask him about his experience in the business, too. He's done a little of everything! We loved talking to the different wine makers, asking lots of questions, and tasting such different wines. At one point he even pulled over so we could walk through some vines, taste some grapes, and even check the brix levels of a few! Each of the wineries was so generous, as well. We visited four wineries (Dragonette, Demetria, Beckman, and Cimarone) and had an amazing time at each. We never felt rushed (except that we got too chatty with Demetria so we had to make sure we got to Beckman before the closed! Our fault entirely ;-) The very reasonable price of Sustainable Vine is absolutely worth every penny and more. We not only tasted incredible wine, but we learned so much and gained a real appreciation for the valley and the art of winemaking. And the picnic lunch was TERRIFIC! We ate at a beautiful table at Demetria, overlooking the vineyard-covered hillsides. Heaven. I would go back in a heartbeat and I cannot recommend it highly enough. Well done, Sustainable Vine. And thank you Bryan!
