Mitä teet

We will head out for the more remote parts of the valley. Up on mountains and down the back roads to places that you might never find on your own. I choose wineries with character, whether it’s the people or the place. Something unique and special that makes you think “This is cool!” What you imagine when you picture a Napa Valley wine tasting experience. Properties that you are reluctant to leave because the wine is so good and the people so friendly you could sit there all day.

Eat your picnic lunch on a hillside overlooking the valley. Winter months we might eat inside the winery, or do a tasting beside a roaring fire while we watch the rain fall. Sit and converse with the winemaker in their homes. Tour a property in an ATV. Hit golf balls out into a lake surrounded by vineyards.

Please note** Tasting fees are not included in the price. Wineries will comp fees with a wine purchase. If you are traveling where purchasing wine is not an option, you may opt to pay the tasting fees.

Please note there may be another party on the tour with you.

We spend a full day together because there is so much to see. I will pick you up either at the meet spot or at your local Napa Valley lodgings. Pickups outside of Napa Valley are possible for an additional charge.
Other things to note
Cellar tasting rooms can be a bit chilly. We will be climbing some stairs, and navigating some gravel pathways.

Water and sparkling water will be provided.

Join me on an intimate tour of four wineries. With 35 years of extensive exploration of the Valley, I am sharing my insider tips. I have developed relationships with winemakers at small boutique wineries. These are the hidden gems you will only find off the beaten path. Have a picnic on a terrace overlooking a lake and vineyards. Sit with a winemaker in his converted barn while he busts out his guitar for a sing along. Do barrel tastings and wine blending in a cave. Drink with the winemaker in his living room. My goal is to help make your Napa Valley trip one of the best and most unique experiences you've ever had. Come see why these places are my favorites, and discover these hidden places with me.

Missä tulette olemaan

We will be spending the day with my friends! The elevated service provided by winery owners and educators that I know personally and have cultivated relationships with add a special, unique touch to a tasting experience. They are fun, with great atmosphere and a large array of wines to try. They change often so I don't list the names of the places we go. They will most likely be ones you've never heard of.

We really enjoyed our day with Pascual. Although the weather was gloomy, the tour did not disappoint. We started at a working cattle ranch where we were able to drink wine in a really cool rustic barn, and pet cows/horses. Then we moved on to Honig, which had some of the better wines of the day. Next we went to a small family winery that had a great fireplace and conversation. Finally, we went to Girard, where we were advised that California is now stating all wineries must shut down due to coronavirus, but we were still able to squeeze two wine tastings in there. Finally, on the way home, Pascual made an extra stop at a dispensary for us. Overall a great day, and definitely a highlight of our trip!

I booked this tour after my original cycling tour was cancelled. I was so pleased I did! The weather was unseasonably wet and chilly but we had a fab day despite this. Take heed of the advise for breakfast. Pasquale (Karen’s husband) drove us and I was notified of this beforehand. We started off at this really special cattle ranch, totally unique setting. Then onto a more traditional setting before heading up the mountain. The stop for lunch was an Italian due to the weather but again we knew this ahead of time. Very sadly the last tasting was a no go due to COVID-19 shitting down all the wineries in Napa. Totally beyond control of Pasquale and Karen. I really feel for all the industries caught up in this and wish them all the best for the coming times ahead. Thanks for a fab day!

Wow, what a wonderful day we spent with The Wine Gypsy. Unfortunately Karan could not join us (we knew well in advance) but Karan's husband Pascual took over the tour and did a fantastic job. Karan had selected wineries based on our preferences and they were amazing. Our very first tour at a lovely place high up Spring Mountain was hugely informative in just the most beautiful setting. Next we enjoyed a lovely spread of food outside at a spectacular little gem of a family vineyard. Stunning scenery and exceptional wines. Then we visited a larger outfit which was not so personal but good to see. Lastly we went to a winery set on a working ranch and opted to take the ATV tour- what an experience! The ranch's owner Don showed us his amazing property, we got to pet the cows (while tasting of course) and really get a good feel for the countryside. This entire tour felt like exceptional value for money. All of the winery staff knew Pascual and clearly valued his custom, which made us feel most welcome. We saw the larger tours (Platypus and the like) and although everyone seemed to be having a fun time, they were being herded around and certainly not receiving the personalized star treatment that we received. If you are considering booking with Karan, I wholeheartedly urge you to do so- you will not regret it!

Our all-day wine tour was nothing short of awesome. Karen’s husband Pascual drove us. Karen had communicated this change to us well in advance, making sure it was fine. I’m so happy to say that Pascual was a thoroughly delightful host. He picked us up on time, was super friendly, drove safely, knew a lot about the wineries we’d visited, and overall...well, I can’t think of anything more we’d want from a host! I know Karen usually drives, but if Pascual ever subs for her again, future guests can be assured that he’ll make it a fantastic experience. Before our trip, Karen reached out, asking lots of questions about what type of wineries we wanted to visit, how much we’d be willing to spend, etc. We loved the choices she made! They were truly eclectic, every one memorable. We got to spend plenty of time at each winery and didn’t feel rushed. We visited.. -a small, new winery with a host we fell in love with and wines that were unique, delicious, and a good value. Loved the intimate setting and the charming tasting room. -a larger winery, but still not too big, with a host who really helped us understand the winemaking process. The wines here were stored in man-made caves, and that tour was really cool. -another smaller winery in an idyllic setting with hosts who made us feel like family. We ate lunch here, a picnic Pascual brought. The food (cheeses, fruit, nuts, crackers, cured meats, chocolate) was just perfect. Absolutely loved the wines and people at this winery. -a final winery with friendly staff and some seriously tasty wine-infused chocolate sauce. The thing is, the next person will have a different tour than ours because it was personalized. We had 2 other people on our tour. We’d thought there would be a max of 3 people and assumed we’d be alone. But we totally clicked with the two women we were with and were so glad they were on our tour! In fact, we’re doing an activity with them today. At one of the wineries, we saw a small shuttle bus arrive as we left. About 10 passengers got off for their tasting. We said how glad we were to be having a so much more personal, intimate experience, with just four of us and such a fantastic host. We are in Napa to celebrate our 20th anniversary, and this tour made our celebration seriously special, one we will always remember. We would absolutely repeat this experience!

We had an amazing Time with karen! We got a private day and we went to about 4 different wineries -all of them unique and a special experience!! We literally had the best time and Karen picked the best places for us and had great knowledge. We just had such a fun time! Thank you Karen!! She even gave us a list of wineries we would never know about to visit after! Totally worth it and would recommend to anyone. Hopefully we’ll be back soon!

We had so much fun on our wine tasting experience with Karan. She picked us up at our Airbnb north of Napa, which was great. She was very knowledgeable about wine and the history of the Valley, and picked some great places for us to visit. With so many wineries to choose from, it was perfect to have Karan narrow that down to the ones that would be the best for what we wanted (beautiful views and nothing too fussy!) We definitely visited places we wouldn’t have found on our own. We will for sure be booking with Karan again when we return to Napa Valley!
