Mike was the ultimate wine expert, guide, and host. He unflinchingly drove 6 of us loud gals around on a 6 hour wine tasting experience (in a not so appropriately decorated mini van). We almost didn't leave the first place because we were having so much fun drinking and snacking on a complimentary cheese and cracker platter. We sampled wine from barrels, stopped for lunch at a local deli, and even had an impromptu hide-and-seek session in a private barrel room. I had an amazing time with my girlfriends and Mike didn't seem out of place at all. By the end of the day, he turned into a friend. I highly recommend booking this experience.
We had a blast! Sheila set us out on a tasty and educational Farmer’s Market adventure. We met the farmers, sampled great produce, and learned fun food facts along the way (who knew avocados were so fussy?). After the market, we went back to Sheila’s awesome pad and prepared a delicious feast! I ate so much that I had to take a siesta when I got home. Sheila's a wonderful host and guide. You’ll feel like you are in the company of a great friend showing you around the city.
It was such a great Saturday adventure! Frieda is a fabulous guide – a perfect mix of field informant and friend. She ensured that we had everything we needed including comfortable adjusted bikes, helmets, and cases on our bikes for snacks and wine transporting. Our cycling adventure took us past the Russian River, along a beautiful bike route filled with lush greenery and vineyard linings. The tastings were a wonderful experience; I found myself in the comfort of friends with the attention of excellent wine guides to answer all of my silly questions. By the end, we were creating our own wine descriptors off the beaten path. I’d say that the experience was a mix of “fruit and family forward!”
