Welcome To TastingRoomGuide.com!

    Under the guidance of my unique perspective as a French-trained sommelier and Certified Wine Educator, allow me to introduce you to California wine country. Like other world wine regions, this particular area is rich in culinary diversity and outstanding wines, but it is also embellished by a natural beauty that mirrors my native Provence.    
   Numerous tasting rooms in and around Sonoma offer exceptional wines. Many of them are difficult to locate and are open by appointment only. My Winery Guide is the perfect solution as you prepare for your wine country visit. What separates this guide from many others is that our wine writers and I have personally visited each winery in order to ensure consistency and quality.

Marc Pisan, CWE.

New in wine country!

   After years of experience working for the local wine industry, I have decided to share my accumulated knowledge with other wine lovers. Starting this year, you will be able to join my brother Alain and I for a series of comprehensive wine and culinary tours. These tours are an unique opportunity to discover the new wave of food and wine artisans that transformed Sonoma county into a world culinary capital.


About Us


   Marc and Alain Pisan came to the United States from France more than 10 years ago. In addition to their charming French accents, they brought their in-depth knowledge of the art of wine and food to California.
    Alain worked for gastronomic restaurants throughout France as a pastry chef, and Marc, after learning the art of wine and food pairing as a sommelier on the French Riviera, enriched his knowledge of world wines through professional experiences for major wine retailers in the US and for high-end Californian wineries.
They possess more than 30 years of accumulated professional experience in the culinary world.

Enroll now for one of our unique tours in Wine Country, and follow Alain and Marc in their culinary adventure.
