About Me

Personal Winery Tours is locally owned and operated by George Herbert; I am a professional tour operator that has lived in the Walla Walla Valley since 1973. I started doing Wine Tours in 2015, but when Covid hit, I took those next two years off for safety reasons. I am back now and specializing in smaller groups, up to 6-tasters. There is a lot more fun to enjoy in smaller groups. I want you to feel special while you and your friends enjoy the day's experiences while not feeling like you are being herded around, as often happens in larger tour groups.


My motto states, "We Wine a Little and Laugh a lot!" on my tours in the Walla Walla Valley and the Red Mountain areas.  I work hard to make sure that you have a memorable time.


Before doing Wine Tours, I exhibited my skills as a professional photographer of 45 years. I held weekly photo workshop tours for photographers from around the world, in the summer months. My students and I explored every photo opportunity in the Palouse area in eastern Washington for several years.

Personal Winery Tours is licensed with the State of Washington and carries Commercial Auto Insurance.

Abeja's Special Tasting Room

Wine Tasting & Safety First

After 50 years here, I became very knowledgeable about Walla Walla and its world-class wineries.

I operate tours in the Walla Walla Valley, the Red Mountain AVA area near Benton City, WA as well as the Rock District in Milton-Freewater Oregon area.


For your tour, you can leave the planning to me or give me your list of preferred wineries and I then will reserve your choices and complete your itinerary for the tour --- You then can sit back and relax and take in the sights of Walla Walla from the comfort of my impeccably maintained SUV. If your new to the Walla Walla Wine region, I'll put together a very enjoyable itinerary for you from the best wineries available from the list of favorites I've obtained from my past clients.

​Whether you’re a wine novice or a wine connoisseur -- or anywhere in between, you will enjoy the tastings with door-to-door service and not have to worry about driving, just sit back and enjoy the experience while I drive.


Even though you think you can handle it, those tastings start to creep up on you by the 4th or 5th winery! It’s always better to be safe than sorry! I recommend that you leave the driving to me.
