“Best wine tour ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

My wife and I reserved this tour on a Monday for the following day and Cathy accommodated us by taking us around by ourselves in her own car! It was like a personal VIP experience. We visited a number of great wineries, had a great picnic lunch at one of them. Cathy described the history of the area - the gold mining and wineries as we drove around the countryside.

All in all a first-class experience and the highlight of our vacation in the gold country!

“A Fantastic and Tasty Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013

My fiancé and I joined up with some of our friends, her parents, my aunt and uncle for a full day excursion in Gold Country Wine Tours' comfortable bus. The tour included stops at four local wineries (they would have taken us to a fifth, but we were all exhausted by the day's end). Each winery had it's own unique charm and history and we were treated well each time. The tour included a lunch that was absolutely excellent. The food was from a local bakery in Sutter Creek and we dined at one of the wineries where we had a marvelous view. Throughout the tour, our friendly guides gave us insights into the area's history and how the wine industry developed. It was a very nice, relaxing, and tasty day and, I thought, a good value to boot. I highly recommend them.

“Great Ride.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2013

Used Gold Country Wine Tours for a trip to Sutter Creek in December. We had a group of 8 so we chartered the tour bus. We have been to Amador many times, and knew where we wanted to go. Cathy was very helpful in planning and contacting the wineries for appointments. Found a new one too on her recommendation. The tour was great, and the bus made it back in time to get decorated for the christmas light parade in Sutter Creek. All of us had a great time. Expect all 8 of us back next year. Thanks Cathy! Enjoyed the classic rock in the bus.

“Sutter Creek wine tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

Just returned from our trip to Sutter Creek. This was our first time to visit wineries. We contacted Cathy at Gold Country Wine Tours to help us out. She was fantastic! She was helpful in all aspects of the trip. She took us to great wineries and gave us a brief history of the area as we drove. She also gave us recommendations for places to eat and see while there. She provided us with an excellent picnic lunch, on the tour. She was available when we had questions, but also allowed us time alone to enjoy the wineries. She seemed to have a good working relationship with the people at the wineries. We highly recommend this tour to other people. We will definitely do it again.

“THANK YOU CATHY!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

we had such a blast for our third anniversary trip. we actually ended up going on a monday so it was just my husband and i on the tour. Cathy took excellent care of us providing a delicious lunch, sharing her vast knowledge of the area and still giving us plenty of "alone time" to share our anniversary. it sounds like amador county is getting popular with limos and such that take advantage of the amazing tastings and wine they offer, and being a younger couple, it was so nice that Cathy knew everyone at the wineries by name and introduced us as well. We will definitely be back, I cant wait!
