MY STORY

SIGNOR.jpg

I met my husband, Steven, in San Antonio, Texas in 2000. I had just received my Bachelor’s Degree in Tourist Business Administration in Mexico and was studying English at the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in downtown San Antonio. Steven was a career Navy linguist and was also a student at UNAM studying Spanish, we were learning each other’s language! After two years of romance, we were married and began living a military life of travel and adventure!

My love of wine greatly increased during a tour in Monterey, California, as I was able to travel to Napa Valley, the California Central Coast and Paso Robles.  A tour in the Middle East opened the doors to wineries in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, South Africa and Australia.  As of today I have visited over 40 countries and have sampled wines from the some of the best wine regions on the planet!

We lived and traveled all over Asia, Europe, Africa and the Middle East.  I followed him all over around the world for 20 years and admired his love and passion for his service to his country. I felt so blessed as my passion was travel photography and his career enabled me to travel the globe! After his retirement I decided to finally enter the tourism industry and build a small luxury tour company focused on Hill Country winery tours.  I really enjoyed the wineries and wanted to share this gorgeous area with people all over the world!

In 2020 Steve retired and we moved to the Texas Hill Country with the intent to live out my dream and spend as much time at the Hill Country wineries as possible.  While I have been giving tours to friends and family for over 20 years, I’ve decided to bring my worldly experiences back to Texas!

We are completely immersed in the Texas viticulture and gastronomy scene. Not only do we know the local wineries but also the local sites, scenes and more importantly the finest dining venues in the area. I am absolutely dedicated to making each tour a special experience for each guest.  Have no doubt you will be treated like family! Either Steve or I will be your guide when you book a tour with us.
