We had the best experience with Ian at Windsor Wine Tours. Before the trip, Ian was super responsive to all our inquiries and requests. He helped us set up two wine tours with him (one in Sonoma and one in Healdsburg) with great winery recommendations in each place. We also got the best sandwiches based on a local place he recommended that we ate in between wineries! He continued to provide us great recommendations of places to check out on the days we weren’t doing a tour! Ian was punctual both days and helped keep us on schedule (without being pushy or making us feel rushed). Overall, we had a fantastic experience and would highly recommend!

While planning our mother/daughter wine country trip to Northern Sonoma County, I was researching options for a wine tour and requested information from several of the local companies I found online. Ian, with Windsor Wine Tours contacted me personally within 15 mins of submitting the online form. He was super friendly and informative and helped us plan the perfect itinerary! He booked all the tastings for us and even gave us a recommendation for a wonderful deli where we ordered lunch (that he picked up for us). The day of our tour he arrived promptly in a beautiful, comfortable Lincoln Navigator. We had the best day touring 3 amazing vineyards! Ian gave us tons of recommendations and information about wine country and then got us back to our hotel safely. We truly couldn’t have asked for a better time! If you are looking to book a wine tour, I cannot imagine anyone being better than Ian with Windsor Wine Tours!
