Bruce

I started my own tour business in 2013 after a long career in winery hospitality management, with focus and passion to create memorable experiences for couples celebrating a special occasion and small groups of wine enthusiasts. I use my personal relationships in Sonoma and Napa Valley to gain access to the artisan wineries which I love, have the best wine and that are the most unique. I studied wine business at Cal Poly and UC Davis, and am a Certified Tourism Ambassador for Sonoma County.
