Let’s just get it out in the open. For this trip you must be either a) serious about wine or b) serious about having a good time. Because when your tour guide, Ari, picks you up from San Francisco in a shuttle at 9am, she’s keeping you out all day. And she’s going to make you ride bikes across idyllic vineyards and taste pinots and munch on fine cheeses. So she better not hear you complain about having too much fun or tasting things that are too delicious, dammit!

She has led tours in Europe as well as through Mexico and Central America. Arianne has also spent time living in both Chile and France and is fluent in French and Spanish. Her time in France gave her an incredible appreciation for the culture and joys of wine—something that she has since tried to share with first her family, then her friends, and now her guests.

A lover of adventure, and all things outdoors, Ari is a wine loving triathlete with expertise that enriches and educates her guests. Full profile
