This could be your experience in the Napa Valley.

 

“We had an amazing time! Doug was a great addition to our trip, and to have such an intimate day of tasting was a real treat for us. Doug did a fantastic job, was very knowledgeable about the area and was a fun host. He has definitely built good relationships with the wine makers in the valley and I would recommend him to any guest that is looking for that intimate experience.

My wife and I just got back from a visit to Napa this late summer, and I cannot imagine landing in that town without booking Doug for a special tour.(this was our 3rd with Doug) Each time, Doug brings something to the tour that makes us appreciate the Napa valley and the awesome wines that come home with us!

If there is ever a job I would want, it would be his, although I doubt anyone could do it the justice Doug gives it. Informative, fun, special & unique and attention to detail are just a few of the descriptions I would give his tours. You are the only focus of Doug’s day, and he never disappoints.

He’s a one of a kind guy with a one of a kind experience he shares with you in Napa. DO NOT miss the opportunity to spend a day or two with him. Just typing this makes me want to go back!!!!

This past Thanksgiving, I was thankful for a wonderful surprise.  They enlisted Doug White of “Beyond The Label” – Napa’s resident neighborhood insider and wine sherpa – to guide us through an exclusive tour that was designed for our family. First we ascended one of the most beautiful mountains to a new, rustic home that was elevated above acres of grape vines We raised a glass (or eight, to be exact) to being the very first people to enjoy this breathtaking structure. Doug’s friend (and there are many of those in Napa!) and award winning Vintn  poured out some of the best wine I’ve ever tasted along with behind-the-scenes insights we would have never been exposed to without Doug’s connection.

After a gourmet lunch, Doug brought us to the quaint, historic home of wine maker Mike Drash in downtown Napa. We shared many laughs as we indulged in a delicious tasting. We even got to meet the label’s namesake and winemaker’s daughter.

We are so grateful to have had this fairytale experience. We were truly “wined” and dined, and we are left with some incredible family memories!

“This was our first time doing a private wine tour in Napa Valley and we would never do it any other way or with anyone else but Doug. So knowledgeable about his wines and the area in general and so much fun, he really showed us a great time! I have never learned so much about wine and we can’t wait to go back for round 2”

“Last week, my husband and I joined Doug White for his “Beyond the Label” experience.  I am calling it an experience because it was so much more than a tour. Doug met us at The Orchard with a chauffeur-driven car so that his attention could be concentrated on speaking with us as we were driven to our destinations for the day. He shared background on Napa and the people we were going to visit.
>Doug was like having a local introduce you to their friends in the winemaking business. We will be taking the “Beyond the Label” experience again in the future and recommend checking it out when staying at The Orchard.”

“My husband and I have been going to the Napa Valley area for 30 years. We have never been on the train, and have only had a driver once before. This time, Doug took us for the day….and what a day it was!!! Doug’s knowledge of the Napa area is amazing..as he grew up there and probably went to school with most of the vintners. He knows so many of the people personally …and all of the restaurants. And the stories he has to share are almost as good as the wines you will sample with him. I cannot begin to tell you how having him with us added a dimension that we could never have achieved on our own. And in addition to his knowledge…he is just plain FUN to spend a day with… Anyone going to Napa/Sonoma should call Doug and plan a special day. I know we will never forget ours…..and as I said, we have had many. This one goes into our “Book”. Thanks, Doug, and keep up the good work. You are truly a lovely person…and we cherish our time together.”

“Doug White knows Napa like nobody I’ve ever met—and I’ve literally written the book on Wine Country.”
