Welcome to the world of California wine! California is recognized worldwide for the consistent high quality of our wines as well as for our unparalleled visitor experience. As someone who has lived in the wine country of Napa Valley and Sonoma County for twenty years and has savored the bountiful varietals and blends of our wines and enjoyed the authentic hospitality of wine friends and winery owners I’m anxious to share this life style with you.
For the first time visitor as well as the wine enthusiast and collector I will provide custom tour services to any of the hundreds of wine producers I have visited over many years with thousands of my clients. There are more than 30 distinct wine districts throughout Napa and Sonoma counties, each with its own scenic beauty. To name just a few where I conduct tours, these areas include: Oakville, Rutherford, Spring Mountain, Stags Leap, Carneros, Sonoma Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley and the Russian River Valley. For the adventuresome visitor there are emerging wine areas to explore in adjacent Lake and Mendocino Counties and farther away in Paso Robles. Please view the gallery of some of my guests having great fun and frolic on tours I’ve conducted. And, don’t miss the rave reviews I’ve gotten from satisfied clients.
At a time when wine consumption is generating rapid growth, especially in Asia, the California wine country provides business opportunities for foreign entrepreneurs and investors. A recent study produced for the Napa Valley Vintners reported a $13.3 billion total economic impact just in Napa County. Based on my local experience and relentless intelligence gathering I will provide on-the-ground custom advisory services. Additionally, from my extensive industry network I will access a wide scope of professional services throughout Napa and Sonoma and beyond.
