Sammy's FAQ's and Bio
My wine knowledge and wine making experience is well rounded. As a laboratory technician, during the 2010 harvest season, I helped evaluate grape juice, and followed up with laboratory testing through various stages of wine fermentation for one of Monterey counties largest wine produces. I was also part of a 2 acre vineyard co-op in the Saratoga foothills where I helped produce 7 barrels of private stock wine each year. I have developed associations with local Monterey vintners and tasting rooms for the past decade, while creating close connections and friendships in order to create exclusive wine tasting trips for my guests.
My newest venture “Monterey Guided Wine Tours” and "Limo Monterey" are part of a plan that would tap into the growing popularity of the Monterey County wine tasting and touring region. With Wine Enthusiast magazine naming Monterey as a 2013 Top 10 Wine Destination. Monterey will become one of the top wine producing and touring areas in the nation. I have lived in the Monterey County for 12 years, living in the city of Monterey for the past eight years. I'm passionate about living and doing business in this fabulous and dynamic part of the country.
