As we approach harvest time our phones are ringing off the hook. When our schedule and fleet capacity permits, we are making every effort to accommodate as many guests as possible. Our goal is to allow as many wine lovers as we possibly can to experience Napa like never before. Unfortunately, our capacity is finite, and on occasion we are forced to refer guests to wine tour partners or simply decline when your preferred dates are not available. If this is your first visit to Napa Valley and you had wanted to book with us to have a trusted concierge, don’t be discouraged.
