Steve Batory

Owner and Founder of Fine Wine Tours


Steve is a lifelong Napa Valley Resident and wine connoisseur. After graduating from San Diego State in 1975, Steve moved to Napa and oversaw several private vineyards and wine cellars for more than 25 years. Steve retired from estate management in 2010, but it wasn't long before he was pulled back into the wine industry. 

In 2013, Steve passed the Sommelier II test and became a certified Level 2 Sommelier. Around this time, he also started Fine Wine Tours; a private and small-scale wine touring business. Steve's deep connections and personal relationships over the years make him one of the most knowledgeable and advanced wine touring businesses in the greater Napa Valley.

When Steve isn't giving tours or conducting a tasting, he's usually practicing his guitar skills or riding his bicycle up Redwood Canyon.
