Custom Wine Tours and Destination Management
We're Ralph & Lahni De Amicis, tour book authors, TV hosts and Guides. We drive private, custom designed tours of the Napa & Sonoma Wine Country in our SUV for up to six (6) guests. We also manage unique tours and experiences for large groups. We provide multi-media presentations to enhance our visitor's understanding and enjoyment and these are available for both our own guests and for local events and conferences.
We'd love to share the most beautiful, remarkable and friendliest wineries with you, both on and off the beaten path. This is a place of gorgeous views, friendly people, wonderful food and of course, great wines.
Our work as authors of numerous books, including Dream Tours of Napa and Sonoma, and as Producers and hosts of the popular TV show 'Wine Country at Work' gives us a unique perspective and depth of knowledge. Wine Country is Farm Country with really great restaurants. Navigating this region is a unique experience where being a well connected 'local' has true advantages. You can find our other TV shows at www.SpaceAndTime.com.
We have no standard tours, each is built around our client's interests and our aim is to weave multiple wineries together into an enjoyable day. That requires considering the experience levels, wine preferences and interests of our clients. Many clients think they don't know much about wine which is why education is the fourth biggest reason people come here, two spots ahead of wine. Truthfully, they know much more than they realize, because your body never forgets a scent or flavor. Every wine you have ever tasted is stored in your limbic system. That scent and flavor is just waiting for a reminder to bring forth an emotionally rich memory. Luckily, the memories related to wine are pretty pleasant, espcially great wines which is what we make here.
Education is just one reason people come here. The spectacular views, beautiful gardens, art collections, farm to table meals and great gift shops, not to forget the world class wines, all add to your enjoyment and relaxation.
While some large wineries do not require appointments, unless your group is six or more, increasingly, small wineries require them. Making and timing appointments correctly requires experience and personal connections, but, when it is done well the day flows perfectly.
We will help arrange your itinerary based on your interets and provide an local's lodging and restaurant suggestions.
Pricing for large groups vary depending on the type of experience, the number and price of the wineries and . For more about our
