Hi Don- I wanted to reach out and again thank you for a great afternoon yesterday. I know our team really enjoyed the experience and learned a lot. The wineries were very different and both presented a unique and meaningful experience.
Working with you to plan this experience was a pleasure, and I will be sure to recommend your tour company to others. Hopefully we will be able to work together in the future; who knows, maybe a brewery tour will be in order this fall! Thanks again,

Lindsay and I wanted to thank you for an excellent day of wine touring and for providing us with tons of interesting information about Charlottesville area. We had a blast and gained a greater appreciation for the types of wine that we like and the varietals associated with this region. You are a fantastic ambassador for the wineries of the greater Charlottesville area!
Your winery suggestions were excellent and I appreciated your willingness to work with us to customize a perfect day of touring. It was also quite helpful to have your advice on bottles to consider, especially your help in our procurement the King Family magnum of the 2007 Meritage. We are very happy with the wine we took home and we look forward to enjoying the bottles over the coming months.
Rest assured that we will recommend you and your company to our friends when they visit in the area. Should we find ourselves back in the area we will not hesitate to give you a call.

Don - just wanted to let you know we had a great time on Saturday - Amy was great! We will definitely keep you in mind for future tours.
We just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed the wine tour on Saturday. You were an excellent guide and we could tell that you are very well respected by the various winery owners and staff. Just to let you know, we were able to be served by your brother Chet on Saturday night and Burke had a good conversation with him about HSC and their fraternity, Chi Phi.
Again, thanks so much for showing us a great time.

Thank you so much for our tour this weekend. We had a great time! Michael was so suprised and impressed with your knowledge of wine and the central virginia area. We will definately do this again.

What a great weekend. The tour was fabulous. We had such great personal service at Afton, and truly enjoyed ourselves. The blind tasting and education we received were top notch. Veritas was a little crowded, but the owner actually spent time with us. Cardinal Point was less crowded, but again we had very personal service and actually got to see some active pressing taking place. We came home with a case of wine, so I would say that it was very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this tour to our friends, colleagues. Just seemed to go by too quickly. John was great.

The tour was great. Chet did a great job of leading us around and telling us about countryside. We appreciated the blind tasting (had never done one before) and chance to visit cave at Afton. We feel that we learned more on this tour than in our other visits to wineries and it was really nice to not have to try and figure out if we were driving in the right direction too! Thanks for all your help in coordinating this.

We enjoyed the wine tour a lot! It was really great. We had a lot of fun and learned a lot, too. James said, he's still talking about it to everyone at his job. The fly fishing was fun, too. It did not start raining until the very end. James turned into an instant pro at this! (Just like with the wine tasting...) ;-) Thanks for the great Virginia wine experience!

Susan and I had a wonderful excursion and the tour and wine were wonderful. We expect to visit some of these wineries again to get some of the other wines they produce. Thanks again for a special experience!!

Kevin and I had such an amazing time on your tour…neither one of us can stop talking about it. Your knowledge of the wineries, and the wines themselves, was very impressive. It was evident how passionate you are about what you do. Living in Northern Virginia, we get so caught up with the city life that we take for granted what is at our fingertips. Virginia has so much to offer and we were very lucky to have found such a knowledgeable guide. You made the experience “unforgettable”. I can honestly say that Kevin, nor I, will ever forget his 40th birthday.
