LEARN And TASTE Something New

Educational and Engaging Wine Tours of Napa and Sonoma
with Peter Steiner

Meet Peter Steiner



Peter’s lifelong involvement with the world of wine-making has given him an extensive knowledge of wines from all over the world, especially those from California where he has lived and worked for the past 30 years. His experience as a wine curator, sommelier and wine educator, and his extensive contacts in the wine industry, make him ideally suited for sharing this knowledge with visitors hoping to learn, and taste, something new.



A Customized Experience


A DoubleStone wine tour is an
all-day educational experience!

This is more than a chauffeured trip to well-known wineries where you are dropped off at the door and picked up an hour later by your driver. This is your opportunity to take advantage of Peter’s vast knowledge of wine accumulated over a lifetime of working in the industry. From grape varieties and their “terroir”, the harvesting and winemaking processes, to storage and vintages – Peter is a font of information.

“Some people know wines, Peter also knows what creates the emotional connection with wine. Understanding this is what sets Peter apart as an amazing guide to the world of wine. His infectious personality takes a regular wine country visit and creates life long memories. The sort of experience Peter provides only comes via years in the hospitality business where his guests were obviously the most important thing to him.”

— JUSTIN KINDEL, Key Account Manager, Artisan Division Regal Wine Company

"I have had the pleasure of working with Peter over the last few years. In my last 20 years in the Food & Beverage industry, I have not met many people with the same knowledge, passion, and dedication to hospitality as Peter. He has an amazing way of sharing stories about wines and wineries that is engaging and entertaining. He is my ‘go to guy’ when I have friends and family visiting who would like to experience wine country!"

SHEEHAN McCOY, Certified Sommelier/WSET Level 3/Wine Professional

"Given that he's been at the center of the California wine world ever since he landed at Chez Panisse in the late 1980s, it would be easy for Peter Steiner to rest on his laurels, buying and selling the same old reliable wines he's familiar with. Instead, he's still exploring. Few wine professionals I know would deign to pull off to the side of the road and bolt into a random tasting room – what if the wines are terrible?!....but that's Peter, always enthusiastic, always on the lookout for new wines to drink and new people to meet."

— LUKE SYKORA, Senior Travel Editor at Sunset Magazine and former California wine critic for Wine & Spirits
