This is my home, not a hotel. I really enjoy meeting new people from all over the world, and helping them enjoy this fantastic Napa-Sonoma area. I've lived around here for 40 years, so I can offer dependable advice about affordable wine country touring. I even offer livery services for driveabouts!
Since 2009, I am Creative Director at Caltext Creative, a publicity and brand enhancement firm located in Napa, California, USA. I am also President of StevesWood, purveyor of fine grilling and BBQ supplies. Also, I provide knowledgeable top-notch livery services to wine country visitors who want to tour the beautiful Napa-Sonoma-Lake-Mendocino wine country in a driving-safe-and-sober manner. And, to top it all off, I am also an ordained minister, so I can marry you (to someone else) while you’re here. I can also do baptisms and burials at sea, as well.
Before the worldwide economic collapse, I made a decent living as a Registered Civil Engineer providing water quality compliance assistance to resource agencies, water and irrigation districts, municipalities, and other public and private organizations.
And before that, I was Farm Manager and Vineyard Operator at Oak Hill Vineyards in Healdsburg, Sonoma County. I was responsible for all agricultural operations, land development, chemical recommendations/ applications, and grower/winery liaison, and I delivered up to 300 tons per year to some of the top wineries of the time. Basically, I was at ground zero for the birth of the current Napa-Sonoma Wine Disneyland.
