Creating Experiences One Sip at a Time

Thank you for coming on this journey with me! My name is Nilu Afshar. I have lived in California for the last 30 years and prior to that I lived and grew up in England.

It has been over 3 years since I started “California Tastings”. Working in the Wine Industry I got excited about what I could add to the experience. I started to talk to a few friends who also brought some great ideas to the table. 

Together we now offer Bespoke Experiences at any location, custom itineraries that go hand in hand with reservations, mixology parties, wine blending events, blind tasting events, sushi & wine pairings and so much more. 

Visiting an area that you are not familiar with makes it very hard to set up a getaway or vacation. We would like to do that for you. We are locals in Napa and Sonoma Counties and can help you plan the perfect trip. 

Let us know what we can do for you....

I believe building a Business requires hard work, stepping outside your comfort zone and constantly educating yourself. Therefore my goal is to learn as much as I can so that I can offer more to you, our dear guests. Currently I am happy to say I am a "Certified Specialist of Wine", a "French Wine Scholar" and a "Certified Wine Sherry Specialist". 

The main focus of “California Tastings” is to be the creator of “Experiences!” Having lived in Wine Country for the last 30 plus years, and finding new and cool places every day, we want to be your local guides. Today, lives are way too busy to spend time researching wineries, restaurants, hotels, spas and hidden away jewels for your weekend getaway. Undoubtedly even more so if you are living in another state or country.
If you have ever gone to an “All Inclusive” vacation you know how relaxing that is. For me, traveling with my family, that was maybe one of the best vacations I have gone on. No need to think about pulling the purse out every few minutes. It’s just so nice when everything is paid for and you don't even have to think about it while you are focused on having fun.


Here is how it works.... you spend a little time telling us what you are looking for and what your budget is. We will do an initial research and let you know general pricing. If you like what you hear we will visit the sites and get exact pricing for you on everything and plan the weekend for you. 
We are a small team that love hospitality! If I am not in my office, I will be visiting locations to add to prospective options to offer you. We look to work with partners from Northern California all the way to Southern California. In other words, because our business is mobil, we can bring WINE COUNTRY TO YOU. Together, let's make your dream Wine Country Experience come alive!
We are so excited to connect with you and meet you. If you have ever thought of it, I promise you, we will go out of our way to make it a reality for you!
