Travel Diary: Escape to San Francisco & Sonoma

Winspire Experience: Escape to San Francisco and Sonoma

We like to share some of the great feedback we receive from our winning bidders who go on our travel Experiences. Below is a testimonial from a winner at an event put on by Twinsburg Public Library Foundation, who just so happened to be the president of the organization! 

"As you know, my husband and I won the trip last year. We chose the Escape to San Francisco & Sonoma Experience, and I have to say it was fabulous. The Fairmonts in both S.F. and Sonoma were beautiful, the young man that chauffeured us was wonderful and the two private wine tastings were very enjoyable. Chateau St. Jean was really a top notch experience. Benziger was also very nice, but two entirely different experiences. At Benziger, I thought it was nice that several family member took the time to introduce themselves and chat with us. The nice thing is, if the foundation should decide to go with a trip experience from Winspire again, I can certainly vouch for the fact that your company does a great job at putting the trips together."
