Wine Country Ambassador

Stan Knight's father was an airline captain, and he developed an early love of travel and discovery. "Running to the boarding gate is my favorite workout!" After one year as a collegiate ski racer, he put college on hold and explored Africa with a backpack and a journal. Later travels included Europe, Asia, Israel, Chile, Cuba, Canada and all fifty states. This passion for new experiences, meeting locals and enjoying life come through in our design of wine country tours and events.  Read more.

A fascination with other cultures and people from all walks of life enables our tour planning to produce the best travel memories and immersive experiences for visitors. "I always wanted to be an ambassador, now I play that role, welcoming people from around the world to Napa Valley and Sonoma!"

After earning a Master's degree in international relations from Tufts and Harvard, and a corporate career, Stan became a wine tourism expert as Napa Valley and Sonoma grew into dynamic destinations. His passion for experience-oriented travel and people-to-people connections added spice to each visit.
