Overview

We're not here to do what has already been done. From the very beginning, we designed Rosso to capture a sense of place and time, to be authentic and not follow what everyone else was doing in the wine industry. We use a European approach to sharing wine country with you. This approach is authentic, fun, classy and high end. We're not chauffeurs or a limo company. We're a host company, our team is composed of quality individuals from Sonoma and Napa that bring you into their world and take you to places where we would take our best friends. Unlike limo and bus tour companies, we set high standards for our team and we don't make them wear silly penguin suits. My goal is to create fun jobs for my community so we only hire gregarious locals who are passionate about food and wine. Spending a day with one of our hosts is like visiting a friend who lives in wine country. We share wine country through a locals' prospective, which offers a unique view of wine country's less commercial side. Our focus is to support smaller production and family owned wineries that don't mass distribute. Growing up here I always heard locals complain about the buses, limos, town cars, and vans. The last thing Sonoma and Napa needs is another company using those vehicles. Our cars are much nicer and classier than the standard tour vehicle. They are not black and do not have our logo or phone number on them. We use this understated style out of respect for the community, and in hopes to some day bring more charm back to Sonoma and Napa.
