Your tour will begin with pickup from your Sonoma or Napa County hotel. Then your guide will lead you into the heart of wine country, stopping at smaller, family-owned wineries for a more personal experience. As you travel between four local cellars for tastings at your own expense, your guide will provide informative commentary to deeper your understanding of the region.

A detailed list of the three options available can found below in the Itinerary section. A picnic lunch, including sandwiches on croissants, a pasta or quinoa salad, sliced fruit, dessert and bottled water, will be served at one of the wineries. For an extra treat, you’ll have a cheese platter and bottled water available on board your coach, too.

Itinerary

Napa Valley Tour
If you choose the Napa option, you'll visit the Carneros wine region where the finest cool-climate Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Sparkling wines are produced. The Palisades Mountains create a dramatic backdrop to the valley, and mountain top vineyards, geysers, and tall peaks like Mt St Helena add to the striking beauty of the region. Napa Valley is also known for full body reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel.

Southern Sonoma Valley Tour
The Southern Sonoma Valley sits on Napa's western flank. The Sonoma tour will take you to the towns of Sonoma and Glen Ellen in the warmer parts of the valley. Old-vine Zinfandels have been cultivated here since the 1850s, making it the birthplace of California's wine industry. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay varietals are grown here, with newcomers like Malbec and Syrah gaining ground.

Northern Sonoma Valley Tour
The Northern Sonoma Valley option visits the westernmost part of Sonoma Valley, closest to the Pacific Ocean. The marine fog makes for a cooler climate, a long growing season, and excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. You'll go through Rohnert Park, Santa Rosa, Windsor and Healdsburg on this option.
