BRUCE MARINACE / Certified Tour Director

Bruce, a native New Yorker, has lived in the Bay Area for more than 40 years. He was an I.T. Project Manager in Silicon Valley until 2004, when he moved to Wine Country to be with his beautiful wife and their two kids.

Bruce is a certified tour director from I.T.M.I. (International Tour Management Institute). He has given several tours of the S.F. Bay Area, and now focuses exclusively on Napa Valley and Sonoma. He has been a wine tour guide for more than six years and has been to over 250 wineries in the area. His style is to show more than just the wineries. He likes to give options to his clients on what additional items to see and know about, as it is quite common that after spending a day with Bruce, you will realize that while the wine is wonderful, there is so much more to see and do. Often clients come back and expressly ask for Bruce and his recommendations. You leave Wine Country with more knowledge and the desire to return.
