“Ryan did EXACTLY what we asked him to”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Ryan was an excellent driver for my husband and I in sonoma. He called us a few days in advance and asked us what we wanted to do. I am a Chardonnay drinker and we had hit all of the "big" wineries.

The first stop was a total hit. Marimar vineyards. We drank amazing chardonnay and ate home made tapas to pair with the wine. It was such a wonderful experience. We were the only ones there so we took in the lovely views, drank amazing wine and ate spectacular food.

Ryan was a bit disappointed as he had made reservations for us at Zin restaurant in Healsburg and we werent the least bit hungry since we ate every drop of tapas at Marimar.

He quickly cancelled the reservation and rolled with the punches we continued to give him. He took us to two small wineries to taste before heading to our next appointment at Ramey. Another wonderful spot. The wine was great.

We continued to 4 or 5 other vineyards - all excellent choices. He even stopped mid afternoon at a great local grocery store so that we could have home made sandwiches.

What a wonderfully surprising day. Thanks Ryan

“Sonoma Tour With Paul Potocky of Beau Tours”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

Paul is extremely knowledgeable about the history of wine country and, more importantly, the ins and outs of tours and tasting rooms. We wanted a whirlwind kickoff to a short stay in Sonoma, and Paul's brand of information and service was perfect for us. We'd tour with him again in a heartbeat.

“Driving tour with Paul-The highlight of any Napa/Sonoma vacation!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

Words can't express how remarkable of a professional, and altogether person, Paul Potocky of Beau Wine Tours is. He has the utmost knowledge of the Napa Valley and leads his tour groups in the right direction based on their unique preferences. The limo was beautiful and very clean and Paul was sure to keep it fully stocked. Paul added a personal touch by catering to each individual on the 6-hour long tour; not only was he extremely polite and thoughtful but he showed a genuine interest in ensuring that each person was enjoying themselves. It was so easy to find something to chat with Paul about as he has lot's of interesting and insightful stories to tell if you're ever up to hearing them. Being a family man himself, he's great with families and gets along splendidly with individuals of any age. I speak for everyone in my group when I say that our Napa vacation wouldn't have been the same without having Paul as our guide that one day. Paul is a very intelligent, respectful, and fun-natured person who truly made our Napa trip even more memorable. I highly recommend Beau Wine Tours for your Napa trip as they provide the best and most personable drivers. If all the drivers are half as good as Paul, then you're in good hands!

“Great time in Napa Valley for the oenophiles. Paul rocks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

We had a 6 hour wine tasting tour hosted by Paul Potocky from Beau Wine Tours. Everything worked out well. Paul was on his game and suggested some great wineries and sights. The limo was beautiful, clean and stocked. No issues here. If you want to have a safe pleasant smooth wine tour I recommend this company and Paul Potocky!

“Beau Wine Tours are Devine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Our group of six spent last week touring wineries in Sonoma, CA. Our son-in-law was in charge of driving to and from our destinations, which can be a burden and not much fun for the designated driver. Thankfully, mid-week we had the pleasure of booking a trip with Donald of Beau Wine Tours. Donald, arrived right on time last Wednesday. Our limo was very clean and had Champagne on ice waiting for us. Donald took the worries of our day away, by doing all the planning. He arranged our tours, tastings and wine discounts. We were taken to a wide variety of wineries, some we never would have gone to but were pleasantly surprised by. Our lunch was served at Robledo Winery, which Donald arranged ahead of time. It provided us with a great opportunity to talk to one of the owner's sons. We learned a great deal about the fascinating history of his families beginnings, making it our winery of choice for the day. We are now happy to be new wine members. Donald provided great information and fun on our tour. We will never forget our day with Donald from Beau Wine Tours! This is the only way to go for a day of wine tasting. Too many wineries and not enough time...turn the driving over to a knowledgeable expert for a great time.
