Carl Johnson

Carl Johnson, your driver with Wine Country experience

Owner and operator of Savor Napa Valley Wine Tours, and your personal Napa Valley Guide. I will be your driver, guide and concierge for your wine tour.

I have lived in Napa for 10 years and have been a frequent visitor since the 1980's. While working at the Welcome Center in Napa and helping visitors with their travel needs, I devoted a couple of years to learn about wine making and sensory evaluation and was certified as a local Tourism Ambassador.  I know the area very well, have come to know many of the winery owners and tasting room personnel in the area and love wine!


Customized Wine Tours

Most people will have one or two wineries in mind as  “must-sees,” and I’m happy to take you to them! Combined with my other recommended wineries I can offer a range of memorable experiences for you.

I will create your customized itinerary based on what interests you while communicating via email as needed.  

We can also visit:

Micro-Breweries like:

Lagunitas/Bear Republic/Napa Smith

Cheesemakers such as:

Cowgirl Creamery/Valley Ford Cheese Company/Barinaga Ranch

Olive Oil Producers including:

Talcott Carneros, DaVero Farms, and the many wineries themselves who produce outstanding olive oil.

Whether you want to take a more popular/famous winery tour or see "off-the-beaten-path wineries" I can create a wonderful experience just for you. Contact me and let me know your preferences.
