Owner description: Somewhere en route to 500 wineries and 5 million annual visitors, Napa Valley lost its intimate feel. At Holme Grown Brand Vineyard Liaising, we're getting back to basics, connecting discriminating guests with the owners and winemakers who make this place so special. Fantastic wine across the board, but people who put hospitality first. We have a growing portfolio of wineries not open to the general public, and offer a curated experience unlike any other in Wine Country. Won't you come join us?

Fantastic tour, Darci was very knowledgable and a great time! We stopped at 6 wineries all each one represented a different part of Napa. I will definitely be calling Darci and Holme Grown next time were in town!

What an amazing day! Darci is a local in the area and took us to some great local spots. We live under an hour away and asked for the tour we would not fund on our own. My wife an I laughed when we pulled up to the winery in a brand new Benz SUV and the competitors drive up in a cramped bus! Lunch was also great! I live in the area and have friends booking a trip with him next weekend.

This was our first trip to Napa and we weren't sure what to expect of the tour. Needless to say it exceeded all of our expectations. We visited 3 wineries (had the option for a 4th, but needed to head back to SF). Dorsey was on time to pick us up from the ferry and was great conversation to Napa. We 1st stopped at Razi Winery and met Fred, the owner, and had a tasting and chatted for quite a long time about the wine making process and how he came to Napa. Next was Robinson Family where we had lunch and the owner/wine maker immediately poured us a glass and walked through the history of the vineyard. He gave us a tour of his cave and educated us on the importance of the barrels he buys. Lastly, we stopped at The Terraces and were given a tour via 4x4 of the entire property by their wine maker. This was followed by a tasting with the owner in the main building. All in all it was a great experience and we will be calling Dorsey for another tour on our next trip out to Napa.

What a great way to experience Napa Valley wineries! We were staying in San Francisco for the weekend and Dorsey drove down early on a Sunday morning to pick us up. Our tour included an old-school family winery that has been in Napa for decades (Robinson Family Vineyards), a former tech executive's passion project (Tamber Bey), and a young couple with serious wine making pedigree just starting off (Azur). The visits could not have been more different in terms of how the owners got involved with wine making, but everyone we met was unbelievably friendly, welcoming, and passionate about wine. The intimate tours were great for experienced wine drinkers and neophytes alike, and the wine, although very different in style, was uniformly spectacular. Thank you Dorsey for the great picks!

Thankfully my husband found this fabulous company online and called to set up a perfect day of wine tasting tours for 6 of us in Napa. We visited several wonderful boutique vineyards in the Napa area. Dorsey was so kind, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the area and the places we visited. I learned so much and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. Dorsey's touring vehicle was immaculately clean and comfortable. Being in Napa for 3 days was wonderful, and our tour with Holme Grown Tours certainly stands out as one of the best days. We had the opportunity to visit Astrale e Terra Vineyards which was delightful and had wonderful wine selections. But my very favorite wines, that were truely irresistable to taste that day were at the Tamber Bey Vineyards. I would like to thank Dorsey and Holme Grown Tours for a wonderful and captivating day in Beautiful Napa.
