Activity Overview
This is no ordinary wine tour! Your wine tour guide will be a WSET Certified Personal Sommelier who knows, loves and appreciates the wine country. Your guide will be with you all day, inside the tasting rooms and out in the vineyards, helping you understand more about your personal palate and the winemaking process. This is an intimate look at the wine country as our personal guest and how these wines compare to wines from around the world. 

This is truly a personal wine country experience, unlike others. We have been visiting the wine country for more than 20 years and each tour is curated based on quality, price, and expression of terroir.  This is not your average wine tour! We are a "wine class on wheels" with transportation provided and not a limousine service that provides wine country transportation.  We maintain a fleet of Honda Odyssey vans which seat six (and maybe seven) average size adults comfortably.  

Tours are also available to Columbia Valley Gorge (just East of Portland) as well as Urban Wineries!  While the Willamette Valley specializes in Pinot Noir with rolling hills reminiscent of Burgundy, the Gorge features various Bordeaux red varietals and sweeping vistas of the Columbia River.  

Our philosophy is simple......we help you get personal about wine!
