Lahni & Ralph DeAmicis Custom Wine Tours
Our winery tours focus on the wine, food, education and stories of the regions, and of course, getting you there safely. We also don't forget the importance of the spectacular views, beautiful gardens, art collections, farm to table meals and great gift shops that add to your enjoyment and relaxation.
Tours are built around you, our guest's interests and wine preferences, and they normally include two to three wineries with a nice lunch in the middle, for either one day, or several. Read more about the tours HERE.
Almost all wineries, except for the downtown tasting rooms, now require appointments and the tasting fees have increased. When the wineries moved to all appointment, they reduced the number of people they see, so timing the day can be tricky. So we prefer to do the schedule to ensure that the day flows gracefully. Itineraries are often a mix of guest favorites and our suggestions, based on our conversations, and more often, multiple emails. NOTE: A big issue these days is the escalating tasting fees in Napa Valley. Fifty to one hundred dollar tasting fees per person have become common place, and that is reducing the number of guests wanting to visit the area. Luckily, there are wonderful family wineries out there with lower tasting fees and since we are continually researching wineries for our popular tour books, we know who they are. Most of the Napa's wineries are small family affairs. Also, the downtowns of Napa and Sonoma are only twenty minutes apart, so from either area you visit the valleys next door. The beautiful Sonoma Valley is a short ride from both downtowns and there the wines are great and the tasting fees are more normal.
