Overview

Escape the city for a day in wine country on this Napa and Sonoma semi-private winery tour from San Francisco. With an informative guide, visit up to four wineries to discover the winemaking process from local insiders and hear about the differences in the many varietals. You may drive through regions like Yountville, Glen Ellen and Rutherford, and enjoy a complimentary picnic lunch at one of the wineries.
  • Travel to picturesque Napa and Sonoma Valleys for a day of wine-tasting
  • Enjoy the wines from up to 4 boutique wineries
  • Learn about the art and science of wine-making from your informative guide
  • Admire California’s beautiful valleys
California’s famous wine country is not to be missed when you’re in San Francisco, and this semi private small-group day trip makes it easy to experience. After hotel pickup in the morning, you’ll head north of the city to visit boutique wineries in Napa Valley and Sonoma County that aren’t usually part of larger tour itineraries. If you have any special requests for wineries, please note them at the time of booking, and your guide may work them in, if possible.

During your day trip, you’ll meet local winemakers and sample varietals from different winemaking regions. Wine-tasting fees are only included at the first two stops, giving you the flexibility to purchase what suits you, whether a flight of samples, a glass or even a whole bottle at the rest of the wineries. Hear fascinating commentary from your guide about the industry, and enjoy a complimentary picnic lunch at one of the winery stops.

After a full day of wine tasting, you will be dropped off at your hotel once we return back to San Francisco.

It was very nice and we had a pleasant day around wine country. We tested a lot of wine. If I compare this with wine tour that we went on in Tuscany Italy there is a big difference. In Italy I think they are more professional and we learned more about wine making and it also included a restaurant visit at one of the wine makers. So if you have been on a tour in Italy this will not get better but it will be money well spent. We had a very engaged guide Don that worked hard to make the day pleasant. One thing I learned from several wine tours is that it is better to go on a small tour. I recommend all to take this trip if you are in San Francisco.

The tour was on time, very informative, fun and definitely a great value with opportunity to see small winery operations as well as estate wineries. Frank the tour guide was excellent, well informed and funny. We toured the Providence, Dutch Henry, David Fulton and Behringer wineries. All different and enjoyable. The only part I would be critical off is the vehicle itself..the luxury van was older, poor riding shocks with lots of noise and vibrations. Would highly recommend Extranomical Tours upgrade the transportation. I still give the tour a rating of a 5 as a 4.5 rounded up.

I had a great time with a great group of travelers and a very dedicated and knowledgeable guide. Extranomical were very professional. They informed me about my pick up point via text and email. Their vehicles were in mint condition. The wineries that we visited were expecting us and were great hosts. Overall, it was an informative and enjoyable visit to the wine country.

This was our second time on this tour. Great trip and the guide is very knowledgeable about the area. I'm giving 5 stars as the tour company and guide were amazing However, when I booked this online you can request some wineries and the tour company will see if they can accommodate. The first time I did this trip, the tour company received my request and we were able to go to the winery I chose. On this trip, the tour company did not receive the wineries from Viator that I listed when I booked. I would call the tour company directly after booking to see if they received the requested wineries.

Frank, our guide, and the tour, were both excellent. After all parties were promptly picked up, he began with a spot near the Golden Gate for a photo op which ended up being our favorite bridge photo after a week vacation which included biking the bridge. He shared his great knowledge of San Francisco and Napa Valley during the ride, asked for everyone's input on destinations, and managed expectations well ex - we won't be able to return to wineries throughout the trip, so if you would like to purchase a bottle there you should do so during the tasting. Ultimately, we stuck with the itinerary he had planned and were very pleased. He even knew the best menu items at our lunch spot mid-day! The one-star deduction - Despite what it said in the description, being dropped off in Sausalito after the tour was not an option on our trip. This tour is largely influenced by the quality of your guide, and Frank was top notch. We'd definitely recommend it!

This tour was fantastic. We were lucky enough to have a small vehicle and there were only 4 of us on the tour, so this gave us the flexibility to spend as much time as we liked at each wine estate and to come to an agreement with our tour guide and among ourselves, as to which wine farms we would like to visit and where we would like to have lunch etc. Our tour guide was fantastic! He was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area and about the best wine estates to visit. We visited some in the Nappa Valley and some in Sonoma Valley, and we stopped for lunch in the beautiful little town of Yountville, which has a few fanstastic restaurants, two or more of which are Michelin starred, like French Laundry. We managed to obtain a table at a beautiful Italian restaurant called Bottega, which had fantastic food and very friendly staff. We visited St Francis Wine Estate which was an amazing experience. We tasted many excellent wines and learnt a great deal about their estate and about Californian wine in general. We then visited Sunce tasting room, where we were able to taste a wide variety of excellent wines. We also visited Beaulieu estate and Carneros Sparkling Wine Estate which was magnificent and had superb views. We had a wonderful tasting of their sparkling wines - I really recommend this visit to Carneros! All in all a wonderful tour and an excellent way of seeing the Winelands. The countryside is really beautiful, apart from the wines. Cannot fault the tour or the guide at all ! Excellent value for money. Even if we had had the full complement of people, one really gets the benefit of a semi- private tour for little more than the cost of a normal tour. It is so much more enjoyable to move around without a huge group of people on a tour bus.
