Bruce MacKay - Founder

In 2013, after taking an early retirement from a long career in winery hospitality with Justin, Ravenswood, Landmark and Quixote wineries, Bruce MacKay decided to use his passion for wine, area knowledge, former winemaker expertise and relationships to create Vin de Luxe Luxury Tours.


Bruce creates tours for couples and small groups with an emphasis on "one of a kind" experiences, which have garnered great media interest.  Bruce offers his guests the experiences that he would most like to go on.  He understands the nuances of the luxury tour industry and because of his deep knowledge of the Sonoma and Napa wine industry, he is truly an ‘insider’.


Rick Bolen - Lead Guide

In mid 2014,  Bruce approached long term friend, Rick Bolen to join him and further develop Vin de Luxe. Rick is a well-known commercial photographer with many clients in the beverage industry, and also a winemaker, which is a perfect complement with Bruce’s expertise.
