About Napa Sonoma Wine Tasting Driver

hired 41 times on Thumbtack

We can book you either a Guide Driver Service or a Car/Limo Service for 1 to 7 passengers.

We provide you with a professional service. No matter the type of service.

Here at the Napa Sonoma Wine Tasting Driver, we offer you a safe way to enjoy supporting our local wineries and wine bars.

The Napa/Sonoma area is a premier destination worldwide for wine lovers.

Your choosing to have a wine tasting guide/driver is to your benefit in many ways. Most importantly, they keep you safe. Secondarily, wine tasting in the Northern California wine country can come in many forms. This is where we can help you make sure your day of wine tasting is in the form you desire.

A day in wine country usually consists of 4-6 different wineries. It will last from 6 to 8 hours, and can be with a picnic/lunch and/or a lovely dinner as part of your day.

We can create a day of wine tasting, which will allow you to experience the diversity and quality of our local venues. It can come in one of these 3 forms below or a mixture of all 3, should you choose a truly eclectic day.

* Option #1: The Standard Form or the No Set Itinerary Form

This is where you just say "drive here or there", and you take the day as it comes at you.

* Option #2: The Appointment Form!

This is where you are given more attention at the tasting rooms you choose or that are chosen for you by us.

* Option #3: Your Itinerary Form!

We go from your already-set itinerary and whatever it entails.

Whichever way, you choose. We will accommodate your wishes.

As part of your Napa Sonoma wine tasting day, you can be treated to special offers and discounts provided by the wineries, wine bars and restaurants. Just ask us how. It is all in the comfort of your own vehicle or rental car.

We service primarily the San Francisco Bay Area and the Northern California Wine Country.

    Champie took me and my boyfriend wine tasting for the day and we had a fantastic time! He was very prompt, flexible and knowledgeable. He had good tips and suggestions and was even able to get us a discount at one place. I would definitely recommend him!

    What an enjoyable day! Dave was so nice and the day was very relaxed. He was on time and we never felt pressure to hurry or leave a place. And the best part is no set itinerary. We had a couple places we wanted to go and asked for ideas for others and he had some great ones!!! Yes, will use again. Thanks

    We are just recently returned from a great Napa Valley vacation. While there, we hired a driver to make sure we could enjoy as much tasting as possible. Champie, our “driver-for-hire,” did a fantastic job of taking us safely from destination to destination – but as importantly to us, he was able to make fabulous recommendations for wineries/tasting facilities that were smaller and/or off the beaten path. He has a great knowledge of the Napa area wineries and matched that to our tasting interests very well. Champie arranged a wine tasting luncheon for us with a local wine farmer that was amazing and also scored appointments for us as we needed them. We would recommend his services for anyone traveling to the Napa or Sonoma area.

    This is a wonderful service! I would recommend this company and plan on using it again. They have a great knowledge of the area and the recommendations were awesome. We had a great experience and great customer service.

  • 5/5 stars

    Champie did a great job of choosing some wineries for us to visit. We were pretty specific, and his choices were spot on. He was also a lot of fun - quite the opposite to the usual stoic limo drivers. Rates were reasonable.

Question and answer

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. Yes. --- Every Good Guide will do Trade Tastings, during the slow winter season to refresh their knowledge of the best places to take their clients.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. Monday - Wednesday the rate is $30 per hour with a 6 hour minimum.

Thursday - Sunday the rate is $35 per hour with a 6 hour minimum.

Both take one hour deposits to hold a driver. It is done at the website.

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I always have loved showing people a great time.

I wanted them to save money, instead of using an expensive overpriced limousine service. Because they charge double for the food and wine tastings, they setup for their clients. We do not.

I wanted them to stay safe on our roads and out of jail.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. A Tasting Day of Exclusive Vineyards. ---

A Tasting Day of Premium Wine & Food Pairings. ---

Wedding Divers. ---

Drivers for nights out on the town or into the city. ---

A Day of Sightseeing. --- **********************************

All Days are in the Client's rental/private vehicle. ------

Thank You,
The Napa Sonoma Wine Tasting Driver

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Check their reviews.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
