“Butch’s dedication to hospitality, good food, and wonderful wines has spilled from his restaurant career into his carefully focused and developed, friendship-connected, culturally educational, vividly scenic wine tours to Priorat, Provence, and Tuscany. My wife Sharon and I were part of Butch’s tour to the remote hills of Priorat in Catalan Spain. The wines were spectacular, the food varied and marvelous, accommodations delightful, and our tour compadres fun and stimulating; but the trip was rendered unique through Butch’s close friendships with winemakers whom we visited.  Butch’s planning provided both full engagement and opportunities for individual freedom. We are eager to sign up for another of Butch’s tours in the future!”
