Chris does a very nice wine tasting tour. She arranged 4 full wine tours, a very nice lunch and a short visit to a 5th winery. Chris selects the winery's based upon the day of the week you select for the wine tour and has knowledge of the various wineries.

On this tour you get an intimate look at several local wineries. We were even treated to a sensational cupcake. You get to talk to the winemakers and even through a vineyard. Murphy , CA is a hidden gem in California. It is much more affordable than the NAPA valley and less crowded. I recommend for you to take this... More

Chris Parker runs a wonderful operation. She was prompt to pick us up, friendly, organized and a wealth of knowledge. We had a great lunch that she arranged at the Magnolia Cafe. It was a fun and relaxing day and definitely the way to see the wonderful boutique wineries of Calaveras County.

Too bad that tripadvisor limits your rating to "excellent". There should be a "AWESOME" or a "WOW" option. We were on the tour May 2, 2013, had the "first picnic of the year", enjoyed 5 wineries, and purchased 6 bottles. Chris is an extraordinary tour guide, with the perfect blend of knowledge, sincerity, and humor. We truly enjoyed the very... More

We had such a wonderful, lovely day in Murphys on our wine tasting tour. Chris seemed to know all of the winemakers personally - making the day even more special. What a charming place and a great tour!

Chris contributed to the best bachelorette party I could have asked for. She picked us up at our cottage so we could safely indulge in all the fabulous wineries Calaveras County offered. All the wineries selected were unique and had really nice staff. Chris was very knowledgeable and provided a little history of each place. She put together the cutest... More

Despite the weather, we had a wonderful time. Chris was knowledgeable and transportation was comfortable. We didn't have the weather to have a picnic although the but the lunch made up for it. The slideshow sent shortly after the trip made our experience that much more memorable.

Thanks Pam. Yesterday April 17 was our first picnic of the season. I'm checking the weather and if it's sunny and 70+ the tours will get to have a picnic outside of the winery. Your group was so much fun. More
