  • Wonderful experience on this wine tour !! I have been wine tasting many times, some on my own and some "organized" tasting, and this was by far the BEST way to go. It was so personal and different than anything I have experienced. The ride was more than comfortable, in a spacious Mercedes van - so convenient being transported from beginning to end. We visited boutique, estate vineyards with private (our group of 8) tastings with the vineyard owners/winemakers themselves. We got to see behind the scenes operations, had a delicious (farm-table) lunch on a vineyard, snacks with the wine parings.......all the wine we tasted was really good. Our guide, Scott treated us so well and was so engaging! It is a perfect outing for 2 or a group or 8 - I will definitely return for another tour - hopefully soon!
  • The best wine tour we could have hoped for! It started with the personal touch by being driven by the owner Scott in a very comfortable Mercedes van, in a small group of 6. We got to sit with the owners of 3 boutique wineries and enjoy hearing their stories and philosophies as we sipped their delicious and highest quality wine and stroll their properties. Needing a gluten free lunch or a vegan lunch was not a problem. There were lots of special touches as well with a cheese platter and then surprise birthday cake for hubby. We can't rave enough about this tour and our future expectations for other wine tours are going to be extremely high after this experience!
  • We chose the private tour to celebrate our 10 year anniversary yesterday and all I can say is WOWZA! I had high expectations going in after reading reviews about Sustainable Wine Tours, but Scott blew them out of the water. The first class customer service doesn't just start on the day of your tour, it starts from when you book. They truly love what they do and it shows in every aspect. Now on to the day of... We were picked up in a swanky Tesla SUV which was an experience in itself. Scott instantly becomes a friend. He's so knowledgeable, passionate and a lot of fun! We were taken to three different private tastings...each completely different from the next. From seeing the wine making process behind the scenes, spending time in the vineyards and sitting down to learn from / drink with the winemakers themselves was the most incredible experience. At every stop, Scott killed it with the details. I could write forever... Thank you, Scott and Sustainable Wine Tours for making our anniversary the best day ever! We WILL be back!
  • I contacted this company to do a private tour for my lady on her birthday and what I got was in her description "The best birthday I have ever had...EVER!" and that is what you want to hear when you try to make it a surprise. I was able to coordinate with the owner (who was the driver too!) and tell him what wines we liked and why and what types of places we'd like to see. What he came up with shattered what I had in mind. We tasted in private tasting rooms, in the owners mansion, barrel rooms and all private. He even went out and got lunch for us (vegan for her and even a bday vegan chocolate cake...I mean who does that!) which we at at a villa overlooking the valley. We stopped by an olive oil tasting cause we seemed to drink faster than he figured so we had the time. Oh and all of this was done in the new SUV TESLA. Talk about living large. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone and have been singing him praises ever since. Please book with them, please know they take care of everything and you'll feel relaxed and safe the whole time.
  • I cannot recommend high enough. Fantastic experience in every way. Scott (the guide/driver) was awesome. The private tour and tastings were top notch and educational without being pretentious. The wine was fantastic. We bought as much as we could bring home. I would recommend this to wine lovers of all levels.
