“Doug White knows Napa like nobody I’ve ever met—and I’ve literally written the book on Wine Country.” ~ John Vlahides, Writer for Condé Nast
“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. It was like having a local introduce you to their friends in the winemaking business.” ~ Nancy Erickson
