Spent the day with Stacy yesterday and by far the best tour we've been on. Between booking our tour to meeting her in the morning she handled it all! (and was great with communication). From explaining all the scenery to getting us into wineries and keeping us on track, Stacy was a lifesaver. She also kept up with what I liked, what I bought, and which clubs I signed up for! I never knew she doubles as a personal assistant but we sure did need one. I highly recommend Stacy when you visit the area. I wish she would go with us to San Francisco today, we're gonna be lost!
This is a honey farm that also grows some u-pick vegetables. There's a dome where school kids come and learn about honeybees. There's a little outdoor spot where you can sample about 20 different wild honeys from wildflower fields and mountains around the bay area. If you are brave, you can go in the honey room where they can pour you a jar of honey in your favorite flavor. There are always a few bees flying around in the honey room, although in the half-dozen times I've been there the bees have never landed on anyone. You can also stay outside the honey room and ask the staff to bring your jar of honey out to you.
Stacy provided my mom and I with a fantastic itinerary for our Saturday wine tour at a competitive price and with very short notice. The Zinfandel Inn recommended Stacy when I called the Tuesday before we arrived and once I was in touch with Stacy she was very patient waiting for me to coordinate with my mom before finalizing the booking. Our itinerary was fabulous, we stopped at two boutique wineries and then a larger one that specialized in sparkling wine. This was based on a conversation from earlier in the week where she found out what both mine and my mom's wine preferences were. We had a fourth stop on our itinerary, but had so much fun at the first three the fourth one closed before we were able to visit.Stacy was also very personable and we talked throughout the day about everything from the area to our families. She also seemed to have great relationships with the wineries that we stopped at as well as our bed and breakfast. We were welcomed warmly at every stop and Stacy was also able to tell us different stories and interesting facts about each stop.Overall, we loved our day in Napa and Stacy only made it better for us!
I would not recommend using this service. Started off the driver being late with a dented sedan. First winery he couldn't find as dispatch gave him wrong address so we had to look it up on our phone. Still didn't find it so ended up at second choice. Wanted to go to lunch in Yountville and ended up back in Napa, 45 minutes late we showed up for our lunch reservation. Finally got the right address for the first winery went there and to a second one after lunch. In all we probably lost 2 hrs in a 6 hr day. Driver didn't know much about the wineries or restaurants in the area. We cancelled our 2nd day that we had reserved.
I recently returned from a weekend girl's trip to Sonoma, CA. My friends organized a wine tour with "Stacy's Wine Tours". We corresponded with Stacy for weeks before our trip & she was very friendly & knowledgeable. She even texted us the day of our arrival to suggest places for us to enjoy Champaign & lunch. We were lucky to have Stacy as our tour guide & driver the next day. She was on time & had her ice chest stocked with cold water. Stacy took us to 5 fabulous wineries & we were able to see a lot of the countryside as we drove from place to place. Each winery was different from the next, which we really enjoyed. She also took us to a great sandwich shop for a picnic style lunch at a beautiful winery & brought us a bottle of wine & glasses during our lunch! We felt totally comfortable with Stacy during our tour! She had a fabulous knowledge of navigating the area & of wine & food, in general. I would 100% recommend Stacy to anyone looking for a perfect day in wine country!
