NEW Customer Testimonial for Paso Robles – 4/20/17

Greetings Wine Linos!

We received a really cool testimonial recently from a customer who “hopped on” in the very beginning and recently rode with us again!  Pretty awesome to hear from him after his recent experience with us again.  Read on…

Hi Jason,
We first booked with the Wine Line when you had just started the
company. During that trip you were our driver/host and we have been
singing your praises to our friends and family ever since. This was
our first trip back to Paso Robles since that trip about nine years
ago. We decided that because our first experience with the Wine Line
was so wonderful we would book again for this trip. Justin was our
driver/host and he did an outstanding job. Once again we opted to
visit the west side and Justin made some excellent suggestions (Doce
Robles and Shale Oak are now among our favorite wineries). Since there
was only one other couple booked that day and they started later than
we did we felt like we had a private tour. Once again we were very
please by our Wine Line experience. I have written a review on Trip
Advisor and it should post in a day or two.
All the best,
Ed S. and Marna M.

Until the next drop.
