DRIVERS

Lance Ruttledge has been touring good people, clients and friends, all over the wine country for more years than he cares to remember. When he’s not doing tours you can find Lance at the coast getting Abalone, hunting for artifacts, or on some intruiging adventure. Many clients quickly realize his ability to bring a local side of the wine country that most who live here don’t ever get the opportunity to experience. His knowledge for wine and ability to make you feel comfortable with his knowledge is just his way of living. Lance is also the current president of the coveted Napa County Tour Guild.

Eric Mogensen grew up on his families iconic “Triple S Ranch,” located in the Mayacamas foothills just outside the small town of Calistoga. His wine acumen came at a young age from a couple of regulars, Brother Timothy and Roy Raymond Sr. Eric now lives in Calistoga where most people know him by the nickname “mogie.” He professes that his knowledge of wine is only rivaled by his skills with a fly rod.

Doug is one of those highly recognized faces in the Sonoma wine country. As the former mayor of Sonoma, he is very well respected in the community with a strong passion for Sonoma’s rich history. He believes “the secret to our success is that we live in a most special place. We have turned a lifestyle into a vocation.” He brings quite a bit of humor and local knowledge of this great wine growing region; and is more than happy to impart a great deal of information on grape growing and winemaking. Doug is also a proud Vietnam Veteran.
