We had a blast on our wine country tour by horse and carriage. Our guide was energetic and entertaining, the horses well behaved and the wine delicious! Overall, a unique way to explore the wine country and a fun day out!
I had a fantastic time on the Wine Carriage. Our driver/guide was incredibly friendly and super knowledgeable about all the vineyards we passed through and the history of the valley. I was really pleased with the choice of wineries. I particularly liked Hanna. Carol was pouring and educated us on the differences between all the wine growing regions from the grapes to the geography--she really knew her stuff! I ended up buying one of their reserve bottles it was so good. And the lunch! So amazingly tasty and pitch perfect for a wine country picnic lunch.
I can't recommend this highly enough; this tour really embodied the experience of what I wanted my trip to Sonoma to be.
This was a fun way to experience the beautiful Sonoma wine country! There was a nice lunch included featuring local cheeses, meats, fruit and bread - all perfect pairings for wine tasting! Riding in the wine carriage was an exciting way to go wine tasting and learning the history of the region was a great addition to the tour as we rode through the vines. Definitely something you should experience while in wine country.
Fabulous, one-of-a-kind day out in the beautiful Sonoma wine country. Pulling up to a winery in a horse-drawn carriage makes for quite the entrance! I have been wine tasting in this area several times before, but this was a really unique and special way to visit wineries. Going through the vineyards, we were close enough to reach out and touch the vines and the guide had very interesting historical and wine making info along the way. We were served a delicious and relaxing lunch at one of the wineries and the table was set with table clothes, nice outdoor plates and cutlery and the food was perfect - organic deli meats, bread, local olive oil, cheeses and fruits. I can highly recommend this tour for visitors and locals alike!
Awesome host. Brett was very friendly and professional. All of the vineyards had great tasting rooms and the lunch was excellent. A fantastic way to spend an afternoon!
Lovely way to spend the day. The ride was wonderful and the guide (Lilly) is terrific. She shared insights on the vineyards and the history of area. Duke and Pepper were our horses and they were beautiful.. I would hightly recommend
I can't think of a better way to see Alexander Valley than riding through the vineyards on a carriage pulled by Cody and Cheyenne. Brandon was our tour guide for the day, and he was extremely pleasant and knowledgeable. We started off at the Alexander Valley Vineyards with a tasting and then a cave tour that included a barrel tasting. We were given a bag of snacks and jumped on the carriage for a pleasant ride to Hanna. A very small tasting fee was needed to sample some great wines. Before boarding the carriage again, we were given some chocolate bars by Brandon and cold water. Next stop was Soda Rock. A very unique place with extremely friendly staff and plenty of room to sit down and have your wine tasting. After we finished there, we hopped back on the carriage for the ride back to Alexander Valley Vineyards. We were all wondering when we were going to have lunch by this time and just assumed we would get it when we returned. Unfortunately, we were never given lunch and left extremely hungry. Everything about the tour was fantastic and still worth the money for the experience, except someone should let you know to eat before going if you are not serving lunch as advertised.
