November 2011 My husband and I started our tour at 11:15am on a beautiful Sunday morning in November. We were picked up at our house by American Limousine LLC driver/owner Bill Payne. Before we left the driveway our day started off special as we were each handed a glass of sparkling wine as well as cheese, crackers, and fruit for our ride. Our first stop on our wine tour was Daveste Vineyard. This was a small vineyard with delicious wine. Daveste staff member, Stevie did a fantastic job explaining each wine we were tasting. Our second stop on our wine tour was Shadow Springs. The staff were wonderful and it was a fun atmosphere. Their wine was among our favorite. The vineyard location was also picture perfect. Our third stop on the tour was Laurel Gray. We started this stop by having a picnic lunch provided by American Limousine LLC. It was a wonderful spot to have our picnic. It was quiet and peaceful surrounded by the beautiful scenery. After lunch we went inside and got to experience the wines Laurel Gray had to offer as well as their delicious house made BBQ sauce, chocolate sauce, and caramel sauce. We enjoyed talking with the friendly staff as well as learning that each beautiful wine label is drawn/designed by the owner. Our fourth stop on the tour was Raffaldini Vineyard. This was a beautiful piece of property. The scenery was breathtaking. This winery was much larger than the others but gave us another type of winery experience to add to the list. Our fifth and final stop on our tour was RagApple Lassie. This winery had wonderful staff and a fun atmosphere. They actually have their wine barrel storage room and other wine making equipment as you walk in so you get to see part of the process. The cow theme atmosphere and delicious wine makes them standout from the rest. After our final tasting we headed back to the car for our ride home. Bill Payne dropped us off at our house around 7:00pm making for a wonderful 8 hour wine tour experience. American Limousine LLC Wine Tour by far exceeded our expectations. It is a day my husband and I will never forget. Thank you American Limousine LLC and owner/driver, Bill Payne!

This was my second wine tour with Bill and American Limousines. The first was in 2010 and I booked him for a surprise 30th birthday party for my sister! He was so awesome and he made a great day even better! He is knowledgable about the wineries, and very intuitive to his clients needs - from packing up our wine glasses to making sure we had bathroom breaks and food in our tummies. Two years later, June 10, 2012, and my boyfriends parents were wanting to see some of the wineries while they were visiting from New York. They were coming down for my boyfriends birthday and instantly I thought of Bill. Again he didn't disappoint! What was especially neat for me is that 3 out of the 4 places we visited were new to me as well. If you want an amazing and fun day you have to book Bill. Hands down, no question, he is the best!
There are no words wonderful enough to describe Bill Payne and American Limousine. Bill Payne is probably one of the nicest men I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! He took a group of 10 of us on a Yadkin Valley winery tour. It was a fun filled day and Bill handled EVERYTHING! Once he picked us up we were in his capable hands and treated like royalty at every winery we visited. He knew so much about the wineries and really expressed an interest for us to learn as much as possible about wine that day – and having a fun time too!! I couldn’t imagine even considering using another limousine company in the future – BILL PAYNE and AMERICAN LIMOUSINE know how to treat their customers and you just don’t find that kind of personal attention anymore! His company is one of a kind. THANK YOU!!!
