What You Can Expect

Semi Private Small Group Wine Country Tour from San Francisco

Small Group Wine Country Tour

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.

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.

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.

This tour went above and beyond to make the Napa experience personal. This is my 2nd tour of the wine country and will recommend this to all my friends who come out this way...

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.
