Driving Experience (9 years, 1950+ 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!
Winery Experience (9 years) - Hospitality and Sales at several large and small boutique Sonoma County wineries
Driving Experience (8 years 1650+ tours) - As a designated driver and for a major tour company
Im my own words - I am originally 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.
