Established in 2005, Destination Design Group, Inc. (DDG) is a collective of creative individuals who are passionate about producing extraordinary Napa and Sonoma Wine Country experiences and events. Founded by Ginger Guthrie, who has more than 25 years of experience in the incentive travel and meetings industry, DDG prides itself on approaching each project with a fresh perspective in order to meet our clients' unique visions and objectives while creating unparalleled experiences. Being located in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley has allowed DDG to establish and maintain solid relationships with the most sought-after boutique wineries, private estate owners, and local vendors. We also offer services in and around San Francisco upon request. Another distinguishing factor that sets DDG apart from other Destination Management Companies, is that it holds a Wine Wholesale License. Being in the Wine Trade allows DDG to gain access to truly special places, people, and wines.

Our corporate group has used Ginger and Destination Design Group for several years to plan and execute wine tours while we in Napa for annual conferences. Her choice of venues and personal attention to our itinerary made my work as coordinator so very easy. My guests were thrilled with the venues, transportation arrangements, and special service we received. In fact, Ginger and her company were one of the reasons our group returned to Napa. Everyone wanted to repeat the wonderful trip! I could not more highly recommend Ginger and her group. Every trip has been a memorable event and their team executed perfectly on every note.
— Robert J. Boyich, Executive Vice President at CPC Logistics Inc.
The innovative thinking of the Destination Design Group continues to help us create memorable events for our attendees.  They understand our needs by consistently providing us the highest level of service.  They have been nothing less than stellar.
— Anna Rakers, Meeting Planner at ING Funds
Ginger lives and works in the Napa Valley among some of the best winemakers, which gives her access to wineries and winemakers you may not necessarily have access to on your own. Her trusted relationships and attention to every detail make for incredibly unique and memorable experiences, and leave lasting impressions on our top executives and valued customers.
