Dan learned about our interests and put together a custom tour to top quality wine tasting rooms where we have a private tasting. We were treated like royalty everywhere we went.... More

I contacted Dan and asked him to take my husband, myself and two friends on a tour to learn more about California Pinot Noir. I told him where I thought we would stay in Sonoma. Dan suggested another hotel that would be closer to the best Pinot Noir wineries. We chose that hotel and loved his suggestion. Dan planned our... More

We had an amazing tour of Napa Valley top vineyards courtesy of Dan. I can't imagine a visit to Napa or surrounding areas without him. He's an incredible source of knowledge, knows all the vineyards and back stories that make it so personal and interesting and does an outstanding job of planning, touring, driving, time management and even rescheduling and...

We have toured with Dan a number of times and no visit to Napa/Sonoma would be complete without seeing him. He takes time to understand the kinds of experiences we hope to have and always exceeds expectations. His knowledge of the region is phenomenal and his extensive relationships have allowed him to provide us with many truly memorable winery experiences.

Dan Dolen did an excellent job taking my family to (4) wineries and a mid day lunch. He brought along his dog Oliver for the ride which was alot of fun. Dan was VERY knowledgeable about wine making and able to get us into private tasting as well. We ordered lunch ahead at a Deli and it was awesome food!... More
