We hired Consort for 3 days of winery touring. It's a husband & wife company. 1st day was just my husband & I. Susan was our guid that day. She took us to 3 wineries for tasting & supplied a wonderful lunch.
The next 2 days, our son joined us, and David was our guide.
3 wineries each day, with, again, wonderful lunches provided.
David & Susan are so friendly, and a vast knowledge of Napa wine country. We had sent them via email, wineries we wanted to tour. They added 4 small, but, outstanding wineries. We
Ordered wine to be shipped from 2 of them.
If we get a chance to revisit that area, we definitely will contact
Consort.
No one will be disappointed with Consort.

Thanks Consort for a fun day. My friend and I hit the vineyards in style with Consort -- loved the vineyards they chose (and the accommodated our last minute request to make a change). Lunch from Bouchon always on the plus side, along with our knowledgeable and very friend guide.

Consort Wine Tours is the only way to experience wine country! My Fiancé and I flew all the way from Pennsylvania to celebrate our engagement. We reserved a tour by Consort Wine Tours, Susan was our driver and her knowledge and experience in the Napa Valley was Key to making our day a memorable one. We are already planning a trip back to the Napa Valley and we will definitely be utilizing Consort Wine Tours for another amazing experience! Thank you Susan and David for the memories!

Our guide David Locke of Consort Wine Tours got us into lesser known wineries through his many years of experience in the Napa Valley. Between stops, he provided a history of both the area and the wineries and added greatly to our positive overall experience. Be sure to book early and ask for suggestions on the best wineries to tour.

We have toured with Consort three times now. The first two were on the Napa side and we just toured the Sonoma side. The Sonoma side is definitely more low key.

Because Dave is a "homegrown" his knowledge of the area is unmatched. I asked Dave how he met Susan, who is British, and it was the best story. It's clear they are very happy and that makes all the difference in a customer service based business.

Our first stop was at Benzinger. We did the library tasting (a seated tasting), which was a great experience. Side note: went on our own to their sister winery, Imagery, with the free tasting they gave us and it was a fun place.

Ledson was next and Dave took some nice photos of hubby and I. Beautiful property. Tasting was just ok, but that's mostly because the guy pouring was a little uncouth, given the winery.

Our third stop, and by far our favorite, was Kunde. As always, Dave has the Buchon lunch for you. Kunde has a large patio area with some old bean bag games. It was a Thursday so it was very quiet. But the real joy at Kunde, outside of the amazing views, was the patio tasting. It is very reasonably priced and you get a cheese and dried fruit tasting with it. There's nothing better than a leisurely, seated tasting. We also did the free cave tour (about 20 minutes). We spent over two hours at Kunde and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Fourth stop was Little Vineyard. Small, local winery with outdoor patio tables for tasting. Beyond low key and the colors on the grape leaves were amazing. Loved it.

Lastly we headed next door to BR Cohn. This winery is owned by the Doobie Brother's manager. A little too gimmicky for us, but it was the end of the day and there were only standing tastings available.

Once again, Dave delivers. They keep the business small so they can control the experience and it serves them well.

See you in a couple years!
