    2 of the 3 vineyards we saw were amazing but the tour guide was useless.Kept moving the mic away, stopping mid sentence and never finishing as well as repeating same facts we have already heard. The driver had to sort times for lunch for us and didn't do the stop at the GG bridge like was described for the tour. The last minute change to muscardini was beautiful and some of the best& unique wines of the day , B R cohn was rushed with the tasting and to be honest tasted horrible(more flash than quality)and madona was so knowledgable eith great wines.

    Excellent tour, well organised with good communication before and during. Our guide Greg was excellent, he was very knowledgeable and we learnt a huge amount about San Fran and the wine Country. We went to 3 wineries and were treated to 4 excellent wines at each, just the right amount of time at each stop. Lunch at Sonoma Square was perfect.

    Broke down bus with 1/3 wine tours
    Tammy_N
    , Sep 2022
    This experience was not at all what was advertised. As professional and nice our host was, we were faced with very inconvenient circumstances which started off with our first tour not even including the tour part due to miscommunication and error in schedules with the winery and gray line company management team. This caused a major delay in our first stop and even when we got there, there was no compensation for our loss of in time and experience in any way or form. After this stop and due to the delay, we had to omit one of the wineries which caused us to only experience 2 out of the 3 promised wineries and like I mentioned earlier, one of the wine “tours” didn’t even have the tour for us. And to make things worse our car was overheating and we had to wait for management to set up another one. This was a huge disservice to us and despite the kindness shown by our poor host and driver, he alone was not able to salvage our experience. This will be the last time I choose to partner with this company and provide my service and time for. They tried to compensate us with a 25% refund but I will only accept a full refund as this is the only fit solution that covers our time and experience.

    I didnt like it, very commercial. Less than a sip and pushing you to buy just by the name of the vineyard. They didnt show how is the whole process of production. In some of them, you will taste standing. Better to go to Mendoza, in Argentina! cheaper and much better experience to learn about how wine is made.
