A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon… I have been on many tasting tours in various countries and would rate this one of the best.

Our whole family had a great time! Matthew was a terrific host and tourguide, providing door to door service from our house to four tasting rooms.

Our most popular wine tour. Join us on a small group tour with our host and up to 9 people as we visit some of the best local wine producers. The tour is designed to be relaxed and personable as we show you why Monterey County is a great wine region.


We can customize a wine tour just for your group and help you craft an amazing experience. For groups of 2-5 we have a Tesla Model X to transport you in style. For groups of 5-9, we use our spacious Ford Transit van. Email us about larger groups.

Meet the Team!

Matthew is the only person you are likely to talk to, and also your guide through a myriad of tours and experiences. He has lived in the Monterey area for most of his life, with exceptions for college (most recently Texas Christian University for an MBA) as well as a five year stint in the Army. He discovered wine about 10 years ago while visiting Carmel Valley and has grown to love and be knowledgeable about local wines, thanks in part to relationships with local winemakers and growers.

That’s it. That’s the team. Well, there’s Scott too, but you’ll never meet him.
