This was our first ever wine tour and Fred was a superb guide. While it was obvious from the start that he was equipped to guide even the most experienced wine connoisseurs, we let him know from the start that were were wine beginners and he hapilly gave us a crash course in wine tasting. Over the course of about 6 hours we visited 5 different wineries in the Willamette Valley and got to taste some fantastic wines. Fred brought alone 2 delectable appetizer trays to help break up the tasting and cleanse our palates. He also brought along some delicious truffles to each with the port that we tasted at our last stop.
If you are just looking to drink excessively and have a driver chauffeur then this is NOT the trip for you. However, if you have an appreciation for good wine, beautiful scenery, and want to have an educating and beatiful tour of the Willamette Valley, then this tour is just what you need. I gave the tour 4 stars for a wine beginner because there is a certain amount of wine etiquette which you should probably already be aware of before taking a tour like this. This would most definately get 5 stars at the intermediate/advanced level as you would be more likely to be able to take full advantage of Fred's extensive wine knowledge and you could spend less time asking beginner questions.
