Most visitors only see the largest, most commercial wineries in Napa and Sonoma. But beyond these forty of fifty large production labels there are 1000's of smaller wineries that host guests and provide a unique, and authentic wine country experience. We believe that our guests deserve the most interesting and personalized visit possible, so we create our itineraries around their interests, their requirements and their budgets. For variety we visit both the famous wineries that are known internationally, and the small wineries that are the foundation of this beautiful place.

When we work with you to plan a day we create a personalized video, drawn from our extensive library, featuring the wineries that we are suggesting. Then we work with you to see if these selections suit your needs, or if we need to offer other options that will suit your group better. There are many things to do as a group in wine country beyond simply eating and drinking, although here that can often be enough.

About Ralph & Lahni de Amicis

 We were writing books and speaking to groups internationally about health and design before we became tour guides, and the original book we planned was about winery buildings.

But then we started touring to do the research and the books started out as our notes about the area. The building book morphed into our first tour book. The Apps grew out of the books because a tour book in your phone with maps and directories is exactly what you need touring wine country.

The TV show grew out of the videos we created for the apps, and grew and grew. Because of our work as guides, authors and TV producers we have gotten to know the region in great detail, an asset our clients seem to appreciate. To get a quote
