Buhman Estate Vineyards
In 1873, John Jacob Buhman became one of Napa’s early wine pioneers when he planted his first grapevine. The property became best known as historic Buhman Cattle Ranch before descendant Don Buhman reintroduced grape growing 20 years ago. At first, he sold his cherished Carneros grapes to brands such as Mumm, Rombauer, Sterling, and Schramsberg. But he was so successful that he started making his own wine, including Chardonnay, Rose, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon.

We had a great trip to Napa with Dylan - a nice guy with a great sense of humor. Our trip started out with a long delay on one of the bridges do to an earlier incident. Dylan asked us if anyone had plans where they needed to get back by a certain time - none did. He didn't shorten our time at the wineries or during lunch. We just had a longer tour do to the traffic problems in the morning. We had a wonderful group of 11 on our bus with everyone being very social. I was very happy with all three wineries we visited. On the return trip to San Francisco Dylan handed a bottle of wine to the couple celebrating their 40th anniversary and another to a person celebrating a birthday. The 2 bottles were shared with the whole bus on the trip back. Dylan even got the whole bus singing Brandy you're a fine girl. I highly recommend the tour.

Our guide was Chris. He was a good host - he looked after us, gave us some useful information, was pleasant and fun and took us to some breathtaking sights other than the wine tour. The first place we visited was fantastic. Barbara gave us some really useful information on wine and we saw the wine aging in the casks. The second winery could have been missed. All we did was drink wine from the andretti winery and the host there was rude and self absorbed. He talked about himself, made inappropriate jokes and gave us no useful information about wine. The madonna winery was very accomodating and Richard answered all our questions about wine. It was a lovely tour and i would have given it a 5 if the host at Andretti farms was a little more interested in teaching us about wine and less about himself.

Tour guide Dylan was friendly and had a great sense of humour. Gave us a bottle of wine at the end of the tour as it was our honeymoon which was very nice of him. The staff at the wineries were friendly and informative and the food at the Napa market was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour
