Bubble down with us at the JCB lounge with international cheeses. Mayberry on the outside, Morocco on the inside. Swank down with us for some real talk about champagne and sparkling wine. Soup and salad are next, sound boring...oh contraire! This is often people's most favorite food on the tour. Celebrity chef, Michael Chiarello's restaurant is next for his Nonni's Gnocchi. Sweet-tooths, don't despair. We have Thomas Keller's brownies to go with our last stop's port. Just for fun, we throw in a visit to Kollar's Chocolate for your choice of truffles. Savory chefs turned Chocolatiers make the very best of the best, as a matter of fact one of the top in North America. While we do not go into The French Laundry, we perch in their lovely culinary garden at the end and discuss all things TFL while we sip-nibble-sip our last course. We make film and series recommendations as well as wineries to enhance your visit and experience.
4 - course pairings at 4-award-winning Napa locations + treats from Bouchon Bakery and a Kollar Chocolate of your choice.

I've been a local for 25 years and live in the Sonoma Plaza neighborhood, running our family tour business for 4 wine country towns + Sausalito. I have been in the wine industry for 10+ years and developed pairing tours to share my passion with other curious visitors. After 5 years of guiding, I joined the Guild of Sommeliers and earned my first level of four with the Court of Master of Sommeliers. My adult kids and I guide with 3 other professionals who have helped us earn two positions in the Top 15 Best Foodie Tours in the US, by US News & World Reports. We all educate our palates and minds by traveling to note-worthy restaurants locally and internationally. Look for our Napa, Yountville, St Helena & Sausalito experiences on Abnb too! You can find them by clicking on my profile photo.
We visit JCB's Atilier, Bistro Jeanty, Bottega or Lucy, Bouchon Bakery & Kollar Chocolate on our typical tour. Our restaurants are all award winning and special. We explain and taste why at each and every stop, landing in The French Laundry Culinary Garden for our dessert and finale.
