Join a small group for a full-day wine tour in Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or North Sonoma. Stop for tastings at four boutique wineries and enjoy a picnic lunch at a picturesque winery. Your guide shares commentary about California’s wine industry and history on a leisurely tour that highlights hidden gems that most visitors would not find on their own.
What to Expect
After morning pickup from your hotel in Sonoma or Napa, head to four wineries in the region, enjoying the scenic countryside along the way.
Hit the backroads to visit great wineries for tastings and your picnic lunch. Hear stories from your guide about about local history, California’s wine industry, and the winemaking process.
Travel with an intimate group led by a guide who provides an entertaining and accessible wine-tasting experience. You’ll sample locally produced foods and several types of wine, get an inside look at a winery and vineyard, and enjoy photo ops of northern California’s gorgeous landscape.
The region you’ll tour largely depends on the location of your hotel and the wineries located within driving distance. With hundreds of wineries in the region, your guide selects the best ones for your tasting tour.
