  1. The Tour was a Great time, especially shared with friends; enjoyed the wines and highly recommend to anyone who wants to go on a wine tour as the countryside if beautiful. It is more than just a tour its a party.

  2. Took a tour in October and had a great time! Beautiful countryside, got to meet some wine makers & owners, as well take as a trip through a vineyard. Highly recommend!

  3. Our group had the time of our life today. Excellent tour and service from Dena and Bobby! Puma winery is a must. Some of the best wines in the Santa Lucia Highlands!

  4. I took a wine tour last week and had a wonderful time. Not an ordinary tour where they drop you off, give you so much time, and then you are off to the next winery. It was a very personalized tour. Dena has a great relationship with the wineries and that benefitted us. Not only did we taste wine but viewed the vineyards. We visited Odonata, Puma, Hahn and Pessagno. We tasted some great wine and met wonderful people.
    I would highly recommend Dena and this tour.

  5. We so enjoyed being with our tour guide, our tour as far as our request of where we wanted to go and she was lot of fun and very knowledgeable of area. She did best on doing what we requested and never been more impressed on how she made us feel so comfortable , we remembered everything we talked to her about. I will use her company again. Her honesty and her genuine personality was impressive. My wife was going through a lot of stress at time and she forgot all that stress and made it so much fun for the both of us. Very down to earth and would request her services every time we are in this area!

  6. Dena took my wife and me on a wine tasting tour based on our wine preferences. She found us wonderful wineries with exquisite wines that we both loved. She really knows the wineries in the area and can take you to places you will love. Highly recommended.

  7. We had a fun time on our wine tour with Dena. She was very knowledgeable and knew the right places to go. She has a great personality and we all spent so much time laughing on the tour! A good time was had by all!

  8. Two of us couples enjoyed a wonderful day in the Santa Lucia Highlands with Dena. She is so personable and knowledgeable about the area and the folks in the wine industry in Monterey County. Dena picked us up at our hotel and took great care of us for the day before depositing us back at the hotel. She put together a wonderful lunch for us to enjoy at one of the tasting rooms. We tasted (and bought!) some wonderful wines and thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thank you Dena!

  9. My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful day with Dena while we were in the Pebble Beach area for the US Open in June. We had wanted to take a wine tasting tour last time we were in the area 10 years ago and did not have time.
    Dena did not disappoint us. She was a very gracious hostess the entire day. She is very familiar with the countryside and vineyards, having grown up in the area. She has a lot of knowledge of wines and the vineyards. We enjoyed learning more about the countryside and agriculture in the area as well.
    We enjoyed visiting the vineyards where she and her husband grow grapes. Dena knew most of the people working in the fields as well as at the wineries. We felt very welcomed and she was very comfortable with the winemakers at the wineries as well.
    We didn’t feel pressured with our time at any of the tastings at the wineries. It was fun to meet several of the winemakers and hear their stories. We had a delicious lunch at one of the wineries. We had the most delicious strawberries we had ever tasted. They are grown right in the area and the same brand I buy in Colorado.
    I think Dena has found her “niche” as a personal tour guide through the valley. She makes you feel comfortable and easy to talk to.
    I would highly recommend you enjoy a day with Dena on your own personal wine tasting tour.
