"Exceed expectations" —Julie, 07/2017
"We returned to Napa with Bin 415 for a short wine tour on the 4th of July. Michael arranged another fantastic tour of discovery for us while accommodating our wish to return to Saintsbury. It is clear that Bin 415 has special relationships with the wineries/vineyards by the way we are graciously treated at each venue with a custom insider's tour. It is such a treat to be introduced to wonderful new discoveries in wine that inspire us to plan a return trip before we are even back in SF. Whether it is a case of special Pinot Noir shipped home to the east coast for Thanksgiving and/or Cabernet for special occasions or to share with friends, Bin 415 has consistently exceeded expectations."
"Best way to explore Napa" —Victoria, 04/2017
"I was with 5 friends when Michael toured us around Napa. Our day started when he picked us up from our hotel. Michael hand picked the wineries we visited and he couldn't have done a better job. He was so knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. He was such an awesome guide. This day was the absolute highlight of our trip to San Francisco!!"
"Excellent boutique wine experience that will please all!" —Jen, 10/2015
"Talk about an impressive first tasting! Our group appreciated his thoughtful selection of small, unique wineries as well as an excellent recommendation for a gourmet lunch at Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch. As a certified sommelier, Aaron was able to jump in and fill in any gaps on our winery tours. He has a great sense of humor and felt more like a friend than a hired guide by the end of our day. The transportation was immaculate and comfortable. All in all, it was a WONDERFUL day and I highly recommend BIN 415 to anyone interested in a luxury wine experience.”
"The ultimate insider's tour and experience."
"BIN 415 is amazing!! Michael drove us up the coast of California to Napa and Sonoma on our honeymoon over a couple of weeks and it was an incredible experience. My husband had never been to California and Michael was a great guide (always had wonderful recommendations of things to do, restaurants, the best wineries, etc.) He is so knowledgeable about wine and took us to many incredible and different wineries in Napa and Sonoma that we would never have discovered on our own. He is also a really kind person and great to spend time with. Can't recommend Michael and Bin415 highly enough!"
"Napa valley lunch and winery tour."
"Even though I grew up in San Francisco I decided to book a trip with Bin415 to avoid having to drive myself. Michael took my family and I to Yountville for lunch and then to Donum Estate. We really enjoyed the whole day. Very professional and knowledgeable. We definitely will try to book another tour with Bin415."
"Phenomenal day with BIN 415." —Debbie, 09/2016
“From the moment we were picked up at our hotel, we knew our day was going to be incredible. We were not looking for a bus tour with other people. The 4 of us wanted a customized day in Napa and we were extremely happy with our choice. We clicked immediately with our guide, Mateus. He was knowledgable, personable, and clearly wanted us to have a day. He communicated so well with us and prepared a day off the beaten path. Our private tour included walking into the vineyard, picking and tasting grapes, walking through the process of wine making and of course tasting fine wines. Our lunch at Farmstead was a perfect choice in Napa. This was absolutely the highlight of our San Francisco vacation. Many thanks to BIN 415."
"Wonderful experience!!!" —Joseph, 03/2015
“My wife and I spent a day with Michael during our recent trip to San Francisco. In the days before our trip, Michael worked with me to schedule a day that fit specifically to our interests. We first went horseback riding through gorgeous vineyards in Sonoma. Michael then gave us a tour of the estate's wine making facilities, while explaining to us how the process works. We then stopped by beautiful Muir Woods on the way back to SF. I would highly recommend BIN 415 to anyone looking for a great day, with a great guide and super comfortable transportation.”
"Only way to tour" —Brad, 10/2016
"I brought my wife and daughter (9) to SF for a long weekend and wanted to get in as many of the touristy sites as possible. Instead of being herded in a large tour we hired Michael of BIN 415. It was simply amazing and worth every penny. All 3 of us loved every minute of it and would hire them again in a heartbeat."
"Spectacular" —Kathy, 12/2016
"I've taken many private tours before and tours of napa...this stands out well beyond the rest. Our tour guide wine expert Joel was simply wonderful. Highly informed and educated on all the sites of San Fran and napa and history. Truly a wonderfully pleasant individual. The winery chooses for us and restaurant for lunch were unique and excellent choices. It's worth every penny... and more. The group of senior executives raved about the day and our host.”
"Everything was great!" —David, 09/2015
"Michael Lagau took me and my friends on a wine tour through the Napa and Sonoma regions in September. Everything was great. He picked us up at our hotel in downtown San Francisco, then drove and entertained us the whole way. His winery selections were those that were off the beaten path that fewer people knew of. We ended up buying tons of wine not only because the wine was amazing, but because of the personal attention we got from the winery staff and owners. Thank you for the experience Mike, I would do it time and time again."
