This team is amazing. What a fantastic experience. I spoke with Roger first he helped pick out a place and was helpful and knowledgeable. His energy is amazing helping to plan my friends birthday tasting experience. Karen was our driver and boy was she out of this world. She was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and so so sweet and helpful. The lunch and cheese board was amazing everything was on point. They even added a birthday cake for my friend how sweet is that. This company and team is a 20 out of 10.
I cannot say better things about Tesla wine tours!! After a lack luster 2 day tour the year before, I was determined to find a better company and let me tell you, this was it! Karen and Roger were so easy to work with from day and remained so hospitable throughout the entire experience. Karen customized our 2 days based on a feedback I gave her from the year before- she is very knowledgeable of the region. You can tell she is so passionate about building you an unforgettable experience. I’m already looking forward to next year!!
This was my first official wine tour. To be honest, a little nervous about being such a wine armature but Matt could not have made me feel more comfortable. My husband on the other hand, is very knowledgeable and I was crossing my fingers that we would have a guide who really knew what he was doing. Matt filled both our criteria perfectly. Him and Roger put together a great itinerary based on our wants and needs. We both felt as though every detail was attended too and had an amazing experience. The bar has been set and it is quite high!
Sarah Bingham our tour director was absolutely delightful, fun and so knowledgeable. My husband Tom and I had a fantastic day and we’re so glad we booked our day with this private tour. Forget the tour bus – highly, highly, highly recommend Tesla Custom Winery Tours. See you again soon! Thank you!
We had Karen as our driver for my wife’s birthday, her professionalism, depth of kowledge and friendliness was top notch, she chose the exact type of wineries that my wife described to Karen prior of her specific taste. She provided excellent lunch for us, the charcuterie board was beautifully laid out, Instagram worthy for all the foodies out there. and not to mention personally bringing a cake out of her own expense to really bring our rating to a 12/10, will definitely do the wine tours with Karen very soon!!
Fantastic company to use if you want to do wine tours in the Willamette Valley. Our family has used them multiple times and this is the only company we will use for private wine tours. Strongly recommended!
Couldn’t say enough good things about Tesla Wine Tours! Above and beyond customer service end to end whether it was their very thoughtful selection of wineries based on our tastes, organizing off-menu and unique private tastings, preparing an unreal gourmet lunch, or accommodating non-standard requests. On top of it all, our guide, Andrew, has a wealth of knowledge of the region and everything wine-related, so there was never a dull moment while on the road. Just book it now, you won’t be disappointed!
I cannot say enough good things about Tesla Wine Tours and our lovely driver Karen. We had a group of five for my birthday weekend and Karen had a thorough consultation with me about what I was looking for. I wanted to try smaller lesser known wineries and she delivered! She put together a large charcuterie board and sandwiches for lunch and made me and my group feel special. If you are looking to find some new wineries, call Tesla Wine Tours you will be SO happy you did!
We had a great day of wine tasting with Andrew. He was prompt, courteous, professional and amiable. We came down for a birthday celebration and everything went smoothly and perfectly. We went to four places. Andrew was the perfect host. Great information and education as well as able to just have fun with us too. The whole trip was wonderful. Highly recommend!!
Fun, relaxed and organized. Great Winery picks, did all the coordinating so we could focus on enjoying ourselves. Lunch provided was tasty and perfect. Give this company a 10 out of 10. The best host, really pleased with the tour.
I would HIGHLY recommend this tour! Excellent guide who knew a lot about the area and was fun to spend the day with. Perfect selection of vineyards and wineries. The lunch she brought and served was perfection! Of course, the car was an experience of its own…great, memorable day!! Just do it!
We went on a wonderful tour with Dan! He was early to arrive, knowledgable about the area, and made the most beautiful charcuterie board for lunch! We loved every minute and can’t wait to do it again!
We had an amazing time with Roger on the custom tour of wineries he worked with us to set up. He was a member at all of the places he took us and they all treated us very well during the tastings. One of the vineyards gave us a tour of the grounds and a tasting in a great private room. Riding around the Willamette Valley in the Tesla was a lot of fun and had beautiful views. Roger let us pick what music we wanted to listen to in addition to telling us about the history of wine making in the valley.
Amazing service and knowledge of the Willamette valley!
My mom and I did a Tesla 6-hour tour in November. Karen was our driver – she was on time, knowledgeable about the area, and overall just amazing with making sure our needs were met. They let us customize our tour and gave us great input based off their experience. Karen handled everything from there with bookings for tastings and lunch. The ability to sit back and relax without worrying about a thing is well worth the money. You will be in great hands!
“We were fortunate enough to visit 5 wineries on August 23rd with Tesla Custom Winery Tours. Molly was absolutely fantastic. Her knowledge, of the car itself, of the business, and her past experience as a Tasting Room Manager herself, shows in completely everything she does! Lunch was spectacular and Molly even managed to get our group access to a private patio for lunch at Penner Ash when they were actually closed for a corporate event. It was seamless working with Molly to set up and determine which wineries to visit, and although she couldn’t drink with us, she certainly knew a bit about each and every winery we visited… I might only go wine tasting in a Tesla from now on…”
Best of the best
I wanted to take my mom on a special wine-tasting trip in the Willamette Valley and found this company through a google search.
I was immediately connected with Andrew Finver, who would be our guide for the day. From the first phone call, he was simply incredible. We had a terrific discussion where he gave me some great ideas and advice, while also being very thoughtful about my preferences. He then followed up with more recommendations and did some pre-work by calling around and making appointments so our experience would be entirely seamless and smooth – which it WAS!
Cannot recommend highly enough!
This is the tour you want to take if you enjoy sampling exceptional wines with a knowledgeable host while zipping between venues in a cool vehicle. And while the car is awesome, Roger is the key ingredient that makes this tour outstanding. We started at Blakeslee Vineyard where we chatted with the winery owner while sitting by the pool and enjoying several tasty wines. Next was Hawks View, where Roger set up a lovely lunch while we sipped lovely pinots, noir and gris. Our stop after lunch was Natalie’s Estate, which I doubt we would have found on our own. Natalie’s sources their fruit outside of Willamette, offering a wider variety of wines than typical for the area. The last (and in my opinion best) stop was Alexana, where Charles, our sommelier, walked us through one of their vineyards and their wine making process before we tasted delectable wines in the owner’s apartment. The amazing experiences we had at each winery were due to Roger’s relationships with them, his knowledge of wine and the Willamette area. Riding around in the Tesla was an extra bonus.
Roger and Tesla Custom Wine Tours are an absolute 10/10. He serves not only as a driver, but as a tour guide and “inside man”. We told Roger what days we will be in Wine Country and he developed an itinerary. All we had to do was wake up and be ready to roll at 10:30am. His accommodations were top notch. He served lunch every day picnic style at a winery. Being born and raised in Oregon, you could tell his enthusiasm for not only the state but for the wine country as well. I always felt safe with him behind the wheel and his vehicle was completely clean. Roger was prompt and a pleasure to be around for our 2 days with him. To sum up: there will be no other company I will ever use in Willamette other than Tesla Custom Wine Tours. And I truly mean that.
Thank you, Roger, for showing us some amazing wineries and thank you, Oregon, for changing our mind about Pinots! My husband and I finally made it out to Portland to check things out and decided we would like to see what the Oregon wine country had to offer. We normally stick to California for our wines but we have heard good things about this region and decided to give it a shot. One of the hardest parts about wine tours is picking your wineries and finding a driver that you can spend a day with. If you have ever had a bad driver, you know what I mean! Roger with Tesla Custom Winery Tours did not let us down! I booked our tour and immediately sent Roger a pretty lengthy email about our likes and hopes from this experience. He did an amazing job picking our wineries. We ended up with 10 bottles to take home and 2 new wine clubs. Roger’s knowledge of the region was thorough and his Tesla was something to be amazed by. You can’t help but sit there in awe of its beauty and technology. His patience is something else to be admired. My husband and I had a bit of a song battle on the way back to our hotel using the Tesla’s media library. It got weird and random but put a fun ending to the perfect day. Thanks again, Roger! We will definitely be back and have already started sending your info to friends visiting the area.
I was in WA visiting friends and very excited to learn that we would be going on a winery tour. I’ve never been on a winery tour and did not know what to expect. I was very impressed by the curated tour that Roger at Tesla Custom Winery Tours put together. We visited 3 wineries in the Willamette Valley Wine Country.
I am a wine novice and was a little nervous to ask questions. I was immediately put at ease as Roger is very patient and seemed to welcome questions. His stories and anecdotes made the time fly as we drove between each winery.
I learned so much about the history of the valley from Roger. He has extensive knowledge of the wines, the soil types each varietal is grown in. I learned about how the volcanoes in the region and the Missoula floods created the different soil types in the valley.
The charcuterie board he put together for our lunch was fantastic. A perfect lunch and beautiful scenery. I was blown away by the wines we sampled.
We ended the day by drinking more wine (of course) and walking through a vineyard. So many picture ops!
I can’t wait until I’m in WA next, we are definitely going to use Tesla Custom Winery Tours again!
