I am a San Diego Native and Professional Wine & Food Tour Guide. Have enjoyed touring guests through many of San Diego's unique Wineries as well as the Santa Inez Wine Country north of Santa Barbara. I am passionate about sharing off-the-beaten-path, artisinal wineries. Places loaded with character, quality wines, set amidst lovely, pastoral beauty. Away from crowds and traffic. Places that guests later will recall as an "I remember when" story. San Pasqual Valley offers precisely that rare insider's opportunity. I know 1st hand what brings joy to both guests & vintners. The very BEST times are shared with small groups, on prearranged trips, meeting personally with producers whenever possible. Its difficult to beat the pleasure of sharing a glass of fine wine in a lovely place with good company. A treat for aficionados & newbies alike
