Custom Wine Tours and Speeches

We're Ralph & Lahni De Amicis and we drive private, custom designed tours of the Napa & Sonoma Wine Country in our SUV for up to six (6) guests. We also plan and guide tours for groups of up to fifty. We also offer our "Welcome to Wine Country" speech at local hotels for visiting groups to enhance their enjoyment of this wonderful region.

We'd love to share the most beautiful, remarkable and friendliest wineries with you, both on and off the beaten path. This is a place of gorgeous views, friendly people, wonderful food and of course, great wines.

Our work as authors of numerous books about Wine Country, as well as producing and hosting the popular TV show 'Wine Country at Work' gives us a unique perspective and depth of knowledge about this area that is unique and very personal and we bring that to our tours and speeches.

As a result, we have no standard tours, each is built around our client's interests. We aim to weave multiple wineries together into an enjoyable day, considering experience levels, wine preferences and interests. There are many reasons for visiting wine country besides the wine: Spectacular views, beautiful gardens, art collections, farm to table meals and great gift shops, that all add to your wine country experience.

While most large wineries do not require appointments, unless your group is six or more, increasingly, due to demand, small wineries require them. Making the appointments and timing them correctly requires experience and personal connections, but, when it is done well the day flows perfectly.

We will help arrange your itinerary as well as provide lodging and restaurant suggestions to make your visit to wine country memorable!

For larger groups, we partner with others tour companies. Please call or email Lahni for options. For more about our Welcome to Wine Country Speech CLICK HERE.
