Our guests have an amazing experience with us, but don't take our word for it- take theirs!
Finding the hidden gems
"Napa Designated was the single best choice I could have made for my recent 4 day Napa tour! Will was the most accommodating, knowledgeable and personable driver we have ever used. His personal knowledge of the area and desire to get to know his customers so he could curate the best experience really set him apart.
He took us to some hidden gem wineries and steered us towards an authentically local Napa experience. We honestly would not have had the same experience if it wasn't for Will. I highly recommend using Napa Designated if you're looking for a truly private, personal, educational but most importantly fun experience! Thanks for the hospitality and first class service!"

Locals have the connections!
"We have been driving with Will Butler of "Napa Designated" for years! Every time we go to Napa he takes us to new and fun wineries that we have never even heard of! He also takes us to certain wineries that we request to go to! As a local, he knows where to go and he has connections! He is a lot of fun, very personable, has great and entertaining stories, and has become a friend! We definitely recommend him to drive you wherever you would like to go in the Napa and Sonoma area!!!!"

Unique and memorable
"There may be other designated driver services out there that offer safe driving and efficient communication, and while Will with Napa Designated certainly checks these boxes (I appreciate that he always confirms our day-of schedule with each winery), he also simply makes out Napa trips better.
Will is a sommelier that has been building relationships in the valley for over a decade through driving, working at wineries and even producing his own wine. He is always good for an interesting fact or story that adds to the experience and makes the drive between wineries fun.
One of our favorite things about partnering with Will is that he is great at planning an itinerary. We will often give Will a few places that we'd like to visit and ask him to fill in the blanks with a winery we have likely never heard of that often ends up as the most unique and memorable. My wife and I give Will our highest recommendation."

8 years of unforgettable
"If you are looking for an exceptional Napa Valley experience Will Butler and Napa Designated is your answer! On our first trip to Napa Valley, we were blessed with Will Butler as our driver. We gave him our desired agenda of wineries and he obliged in getting our tastings arranged. The next day, Will asked if he could switch our itinerary to give us a more exclusive tour. We agreed and are now on our 8th year of using Will as a guide.
Each year Will has provided us with the most exclusive winery tours and has become a dear friend. He has a wealth of knowledge about Napa Valley and is delightfully entertaining as well. We are already planning our next tour with Will for next year. I highly recommend that you allow Napa Designated to set your itinerary as you will have an unforgettable experience."
