great trip. I think lunch time could be shorter and one of the larger wine companies should be included

One of the highlights of our trip. Pete was a great guide and the 3 vineyards were stunning. We even took 2 kids along 5 and 7 and even they enjoyed running around the vineyards and watching the fish in one of the ponds.

Going with a small tour is definitely the way to go! I was expecting some van but the small van/bus was beautiful, leather seats, very nice ride. You get a lot of wine samples and get lots more time to wonder around the vineyards. Also, having the lunch included was nice so you didn't have to spend time trying to figure out what you wanted for lunch. We ate right away and then got to just enjoy some free time around Sonoma. It was fantastic!
