What a spectacular trip! Orson & Dave put together a jam-packed itinerary full of all kinds of different wineries, wonderful & unique restaurants, and great site seeing adventures that kept the week exciting and interesting. It certainly made my first- time visit to this area one that I'll always remember. For anyone that didn't go, you should seriously consider going the next time it's offered. Bravo to our organizers!

What a fabulous trip! The wineries and experiences were unforgettable! Thanks to our fearless tour leaders, we were able to personally blend our own wines, see firsthand how cheese is made, tour beautiful vineyards and hear the vineyards history directly from the owners. The restaurants were top notch and beautifully complemented the local wines.

...If we were looking for the perfect Napa/Sonoma experience, Orson and Dave hit the mark! We dined at some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the Valley, (Dry Creek Kitchen just featured in a recent Wine Spectator article to mention one). We met vintners, toured a cave and had personal guides at each location. Great experience with great participants. Thanks again!
