Why Travelers Choose This Tour

Experiencing wine country is easy on this immensely popular tour. The tastings are all included and feature lots of different wines, so you're sure to find a favorite. Plus, your friendly and knowledgeable guide offers insightful commentary between wineries.
Let your guide handle the driving and relax as you sip your way through California’s wine country. After morning pickup at your San Francisco hotel, settle into a luxury coach equipped with onboard amenities including a restroom, reclining seats, and Wi-Fi. Hear tales of Spanish missionaries and Gold Rush fortune seekers from your guide as you cruise across the Golden Gate Bridge and through the rolling green hills and pastures of Sonoma Valley. 

Your first stop is the family-run Nicholson Ranch Winery, a villa-like estate nestled in the southern foothills of Sonoma. Taste fantastic chardonnay, pinot noir and merlot varietals while savoring views of gently sloping vineyards from the patio. Continue on to the world-famous Napa Valley for a tour and tasting at Madonna Estate, a family-run winery that produces organic wines in the acclaimed Carneros winemaking region. 

Indulge your appetite with a stop for lunch (own expense) at Sonoma Square Plaza, one of the largest plazas in California, and pick from multiple charming restaurants.

Next, it’s time for more wine at Sutter Home, your final stop of the day. Sip different varietals in the tasting room while learning how this Napa Valley classic grew from a small, family-run operation in the late 1800s to one of the most recognized winemaking names in the United States. 

Back on the coach, savor the late afternoon sun and your wine-induced glow on the return drive to San Francisco, where your tour concludes in Union Square.

Please note: Depending on the day of your tour, the order of the wineries you visit, as well as which wineries you visit could change depending on availability and other determining factors.

Great day, highly recommend this tour to get out of the city and visit wine country. We had an excellent driver that was a very informative tour guide for us throughout the day.

Excellent tour of the wine region. Tour guide was informative and entertaining. Visited Cline, Jacuzzi and Madonna wineries. Tasting events were nice. Great stop for lunch at Platform 8 (salads, hamburgers, hotdogs) at V Marketplace in Yountville. Fun way to spend a day.

Excellent tour- bus did not have a working bathroom/toilet. Should at least have provided us with a bottle of water though. Driver was excellent.

Fantastic. Totally worth your money. Not only do you get transportation provided for you, but also you get to visit three different wineries and vineyards complete with a great tour guide. I lost count of how many different wines that we sampled. Overall, you really get the most of it and totally get your bang for the buck.

We enjoyed our full day of traveling thru Napa and Sonoma. The bus driver was very informative. Even though he made one wrong turn he turned the bus around with no problem and got us back on track with no delay. I highly recommend Gray Line Tours.

My boyfriend and I always wanted to do a wine tour but didn't know how to research the process. I stumbled upon this site and saw multiple listing for wine tours. This one in particular was amazing. I would advise, arrive early to check in to the main building to get good seats on the bus, from what I recall, another bus was needed to transport other individuals who bought the same package. Yountville was wonderful and we had just enough time to eat and look around. The driver was very polite and informative and hit all the sight seeing spots possible. Will definitely use this site again. Thanks viator!

We had a wonderful time. Went to Sutter Home, Madonna and Gloria Ferrer. All the winery people were on their game explaining their process and products. Our driver Antonio added information and color that can’t be described. He was informative, professional and most importantly, personal. His recommendation of a local restaurant was spot on. The wines were all good but he was the star of the show. Antonio is the man.

I really enjoyed this tour! The bus driver knew a lot about wine and the 3 vineyards we visited were amazing! Especially the Jacuzzi vineyard!
