PHILOSOPHY

 

Our goal is to provide you the service needed for you to have a relaxing and enjoyable day. We want to share with you the joy and wonder of Oregon's Willamette Valley Wine Country.  We love it here and enjoy sharing our experience with others.  With you, we will design a tour to meet your specific interests. If you only have a general idea of what you want to do, we will make suggestions that we think you will like. 

 

More in-depth "PREMIUM" tours can also be provided.  Private tastings with winemakers and winery owners or tours with a sommelier are among the possibilites.   We are equally interested in serving the novice, expert, or non-wine enthusiasts.

"We had an absolutely marvelous day of winery visits and wine tasting with our tour host Sabra Mathot. She put together a gourmet cheese and bread plate for our lunch - specially selected to complement the many pinots we were trying (Sabra has an extensive background and knowledge of cheeses - you'll need to ask her about it if she is your guide). When we first reached out to Jerry Tolle, the owner of Custom Valley Tours, we asked him to chose the wineries. We appreciated his thorough follow up during the time leading up to our visit to Oregon. Sabra took us to 5 very special wineries. Views were amazing, the wine tasting fun, educational for us, and interesting. We especially appreciated the fact that Sabra had personal connections with the winemakers, owners and staff that we met on tour. The entire experience could not have been more perfect and we highly recommend both Sabra and Jerry.'m a paragraph. Click here to add your own text and edit me.

"Had a great tour with Jerry in mid-September. He asked us well in advance what our taste preferences were and we had suggestions and he added to them. It was a wonderful day and all six wineries were unique and tastings were either private or a small group. Jerry is very patient and we never felt rushed during the day. He is an original to the area and knows a great deal about the Willamette Valley. I would highly recommend Jerry for a relaxing and wonderful day!"
