Road Trip Testimonials

Road trip testimonials


“My husband Bill and I have been lucky enough to have had many wine country experiences. In this light, the Road Trip to Oakville Ranch and Fortunati far exceeded our expectations and are now among our very favorite Napa moments. Thanks to you, Dan.   We’re SO glad we joined your club and grateful for the thought you put into the day.  Our DDWA Membership paid for itself on our first participation.  I have and will continue to recommend the DDWA membership to my friends and colleagues as it is a great way to expand your wine knowledge and appreciation.  Looking forward to the next Road Trip.”
Karen W of Napa, CA

"Just became a Dan Dawson’s Wine Advisor member and joined Dan on his recent mid-July Road Trip to Robert Craig. This was an intimate group of wine enthusiasts who enjoyed an off-the-beaten-path wine experience in a gorgeous setting atop Howell Mountain. While the tasting would have been terrific on its own, being able to have real-time access to Dan's insight and perspective made the experience even more enjoyable and educational. Look forward to the next tasting field trip!”
Robin and Michael from Atlanta, GA

“On a sunny July day, my wife and I got to accompany Dan and a group of like-minded wine enthusiasts to Robert Craig winery atop Howell Mountain. We enjoyed spectacular wines along with an expansive view of Napa Valley below us. It was truly extraordinary to be able to see each of the peaks that the mountain appellation cabernets came from as we tasted them. Thanks to Dan’s knowledge and connections for allowing us to visit wineries ‘off the beaten path’ - Sign us up for the next road trip!”
Alan and Lynn Johnson, Napa Valley

"In late October, I got the chance to accompany Dan and others on one of his road trips. Being able to taste Bohème Winery’s single-vineyard Chardonnays and Pinots with vintner/owner Kurt Beitler in the redwood-studded privacy of the Stuller vineyard as well enjoy the uber-boutique wines of Jolie-Laide poured by vinter/owner Scott Schultz with his hands still stained from incoming Syrah grapes from the acclaimed Halcón vineyard is something mere mortals rarely get to do. Thank you to Dan for providing a truly unforgettable day!"
