Driving Experience (8 years, 1700+ tours)  - Wine Tour Driver in Napa and Sonoma 

In my own words - I am from California originally and moved to the wine country 14 years ago. After personally discovering wine in the 90's, I took a road trip to Napa Valley. After that I was determined to work in a winery, and three months later I was living and working in the wine country. Over the years I learned from hands-on experience in the wine industry and furthered my education with advanced classes and self study. But to me the most fun thing has been meeting people coming to the wine country from all over the nation. And I enjoy driving people on tours because it gives me a chance to share all the great things I've found here over the last 14 years. I am looking forward to driving you around the wine country!

In my own words - I came to Sonoma County in 2004 to finish my business degree at Sonoma State University and quickly fell in love with the wine country and wine. Finally majoring in wine business, I began my career in the wine industry working at various boutique,family owned & operated wineries. After a few years I had realized that wine tasting is about more than just wine, it's about the whole experience in wine country, which I love to share with guests on their visit.

Driving Experience (7 years 1000+ tours) - As a designated driver and for a major tour company

Im my own words - I am original
ly from Southern California, but once I moved to Sonoma Wine Country in 1997, I was hooked. My interest in wine began with personal enjoyment, which led to a passion for every aspect of wine production. I started working at my first winery in 2006 and have enjoyed being involved in every aspect of the wine making process since. I have 5 years of wine tourism experience under my belt and enjoy sharing my wine knowledge with anyone interested. I'm a heirloom gardener and "foodie" as well, and enjoy playing with wine and food pairings in my off time. I look forward to catering a wine experience for each of my guests and sharing some of the knowledge I've obtained over the years.
