“We really enjoyed our Napa Valley tour with Jason. He made it fun and informative and took good care of us. We’ve done Napa and Sonoma wine tours before, but Platypus offered a more intimate experience with some less commercial but very successful, multi-generation wineries and we really appreciated that.

It was our first time with Platypus and our friends’ second time. It won’t be our last. The wineries were great and each spent time showing their operation and walking us through their wines, history, and processes. The wine was amazing (we ended up buying several bottles and joining a wine club, but this is all optional and there’s no pressure to do so). We plan to be back to allow Platypus to introduce us to more great wines. Highly recommended!”
