Roger was a great tour guide! He went above and beyond and designed a custom two day winery tour. We loved the wine at every single place and each day was complemented with a beautiful charcuterie spread for lunch. His tesla is beautiful and puts the experience over the top!
Did another tour last weekend. Roger the owners was awesome. We were treated to a 5 star experience at all the wineries, including a vineyard tour and off menu tasting. We will be back!
Roger was an excellent tour guide and we were so happy to find his tour for my moms birthday!! It was one of the highlights of our trip. He recommended the perfect amount of wineries as we are not from the area and each winery was beautiful and unique! We hope to join you on another tour! Thanks Roger!!
We had an amazing time with Roger on the custom tour of wineries he worked with us to set up. He was a member at all of the places he took us and they all treated us very well during the tastings. One of the vineyards gave us a tour of the grounds and a tasting in a great private room. Riding around the Willamette Valley in the Tesla was a lot of fun and had beautiful views. Roger let us pick what music we wanted to listen to in addition to telling us about the history of wine making in the valley.
Great day touring 4 fabulous vineyards in the Portland area. The Tesla was a fabulous vehicle. Roger was a great guide and provided tons of information on Portland, the vineyards and the Tesla. If you are in Portland and like wine, take this tour!
Thank you, Roger, for showing us some amazing wineries and thank you, Oregon, for changing our mind about Pinots!
My husband and I finally made it out to Portland to check things out and decided we would like to see what the Oregon wine country had to offer. We normally stick to California for our wines but we have heard good things about this region and decided to give it a shot. One of the hardest parts about wine tours is picking your wineries and finding a driver that you can spend a day with. If you have ever had a bad driver, you know what I mean! Roger with Tesla Custom Winery Tours did not let us down! I booked our tour and immediately sent Roger a pretty lengthy email about our likes and hopes from this experience. He did an amazing job picking our wineries. We ended up with 10 bottles to take home and 2 new wine clubs. Roger's knowledge of the region was thorough and his Tesla was something to be amazed by. You can't help but sit there in awe of its beauty and technology. His patience is something else to be admired. My husband and I had a bit of a song battle on the way back to our hotel using the Tesla's media library. It got weird and random but put a fun ending to the perfect day. Thanks again, Roger! We will definitely be back and have already started sending your info to friends visiting the area.
Roger was the best tour guide and the perfect tour we were looking for when we're researching wine tours. He was very knowledgeable about the whole area and recommended 4 exceptional wineries. It was one of the best days of our vacation and we can't wait to come back again! Highly recommended!!!
Awesome wine tour! Roger was the best, his knowledge of wine is outstanding and informative. He was able to cater to some of my must-see vineyards along our tour. I went with my sister and a girlfriend for my birthday. We had so much fun. The lunch was amazing. We sat outside enjoying the wonderful view from one of the vineyards and Roger came out with this amazing lunch spread. If you're planning a wine tour I would highly recommend Tesla Custom Winery Tours with Roger Bingham.
This is the tour you want to take if you enjoy sampling exceptional wines with a knowledgeable host while zipping between venues in a cool vehicle. And while the car is awesome, Roger is the key ingredient that makes this tour outstanding. We started at Blakeslee Vineyard where we chatted with the winery owner while sitting by the pool and enjoying several tasty wines. Next was Hawks View, where Roger set up a lovely lunch while we sipped lovely pinots, noir and gris. Our stop after lunch was Natalie’s Estate, which I doubt we would have found on our own. Natalie’s sources their fruit outside of Willamette, offering a wider variety of wines than typical for the area. The last (and in my opinion best) stop was Alexana, where Charles, our sommelier, walked us through one of their vineyards and their wine making process before we tasted delectable wines in the owner’s apartment. The amazing experiences we had at each winery were due to Roger’s relationships with them, his knowledge of wine and the Willamette area. Riding around in the Tesla was an extra bonus.
Roger and Tesla Custom Wine Tours are an absolute 10/10. He serves not only as a driver, but as a tour guide and "inside man". We told Roger what days we will be in Wine Country and he developed an itinerary. All we had to do was wake up and be ready to roll at 10:30am. His accommodations were top notch. He served lunch every day picnic style at a winery. Being born and raised in Oregon, you could tell his enthusiasm for not only the state but for the wine country as well. I always felt safe with him behind the wheel and his vehicle was completely clean. Roger was prompt and a pleasure to be around for our 2 days with him.
To sum up: there will be no other company I will ever use in Willamette other than Tesla Custom Wine Tours. And I truly mean that.
Excellent day. Just finished a day out with Roger and his Tesla SUV. Astounding vehicle. Brought us to several unique boutique wineries, all beautiful. Drank slightly too much, but we're feeling good. Maybe too good. Had no idea that Oregon had such an amazing wine region. Roger provided us with a gourmet lunch, of such quality that we wound up canceling tonight's dinner. Book it without hesitation.
We are still AMAZED at how great our Tesla Wine Tour was! We were fortunate enough to have Molly as our guide and driver, and she put together a fantastic day for us: 5 wineries (in this case we concentrated on some of the finest wineries in The Dundee Hills) in our itinerary, which took us through some of the prettiest parts of Willamette Valley. The wineries we visited us treated us like royalty (as did Molly). I have been on some tours where our guide was simply a driver, and others where they talked non-stop. In this case Molly correctly judged our levels of interest and knowledge, and worked seamlessly with each winery to see that we got all the education we wanted, without it being preachy or repetitive. We had a very hearty picnic lunch inside one of the wineries (it was too warm for outdoor dining that day) The vehicle is comfy, clean, silent, and had a cool "sci-fi" feel to it. It was remarkable how well Tesla designed this to make plenty of room for passengers, and even enough for the wine we bought! As a thrifty fellow, I also appreciate the sensible hourly-fee and 4 hour minimum for booking tours. Tesla Custom Winery Tours rock!!!
If you want a top shelf custom wine tasting tour, this is the thing for you. Roger combines his skill for hospitality, his knowledge of wines, and his entertaining stories to provide the only truly clean energy wine tasting tour that really delivers white glove service. I wish I could put 6 stars.
It is an experience you will never forget. Best wine tour in Oregon! It's a must experience
