What You Can Expect

Napa and Sonoma Wine Country Tour

Napa Valley, Califormia

On your Sonoma and Napa wine tour, you'll visit a mix of three boutique and large-scale wineries for tastings and guided tours of the winery grounds. At each place, walk through beautiful vineyards; see how the grapes are picked, crushed, blended and bottled; and then sample the finished product in the tasting room. All tasting fees are included!


Hop aboard a luxury coach at your San Francisco hotel in the morning and relax on a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. Savor the last views of San Francisco Bay and Alcatraz before making your way north to wine country. Your coach comes with tons of amenities including a restroom, reclining seats and Wi-Fi, ensuring the most comfortable ride possible. Throughout your tour, your expert guide will teach you about the region’s winemaking history, from the early Spanish missionaries who brought grapevines from Europe to the Forty-Niners who served wines in their saloons.

When you reach Sonoma Valley, your first stop is Nicholson Ranch Winery, whose vineyards are planted in one of the world's most prized grape-growing regions. This family-owned artisan winery produces premium grapes for chardonnay, pinot noir, merlot and Syrah, which you'll taste during your visit.

Continue driving to Napa Valley to visit Madonna Estate, located in the world-renowned Carneros region. During your tour and tasting, learn about why this family-owned winery uses organic farming methods and combines traditional and modern winemaking techniques.

Once you’ve worked up an appetite, make your way to the charming yet sophisticated town of Yountville for lunch. This gem in the middle of Napa Valley is filled with a myriad of Michelin-star restaurants, including Thomas Keller's world-famous The French Laundry.

You’ll have plenty of free time to explore Yountville at your own leisure and expense. Grab a pastry or baguette from Bouchon Bakery, have a sandwich and glass of wine at a sun-bathed picnic table, and satisfy your sweet tooth with a chocolate tasting at Kollar Chocolates. Don't miss V Marketplace, once known at Vintage 1870 -- a historic, 140 year-old Groezinger Winery complex home to countless specialty boutiques, galleries, restaurants and a wine-tasting cellar.

Hop back on the coach and continue to Sutter Home in Napa, your last stop of the day. Established in the late 1800s, this famous winery has become a household name for its white zinfandels. Learn how it has become the second-largest independent, family-run winery in the US!

After your last tasting, settle into your seat on the coach and unwind as you enjoy a scenic drive through wine country back to San Francisco.

Please note: Winery locations and itinerary may change due to traffic or a previously booked special event at the location.

Excellent trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Our driver, Kabush I believe, made the trip. He was friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful. He kept us entertained and informed for the whole day, even to dropping us off at our numerous hotels after a full day of driving.
The wineries were a good mix of small and large and estate and not.
It was a fun day. Of course, the magnificent weather helped!

The trip was amazing, and the tour guide was awesome! Learning the history of Napa and Sonoma on a comfortable bus was a great way to spend my last day in San Francisco. The vineyard stops we made Madonna, Stutter Homes, etc. staff were very friendly and the wine tastings were top notch. I strongly recommend anyone to try this tour.
