What You Can Expect

Private Tour: Wine Country Day Trip from San Francisco

Private Napa or Sonoma Tour from San Francisco

Your private tour can accommodate up to six people, and will begin with pickup at your hotel in San Francisco. Pass over the Golden Gate Bridge to see the infamous Alcatraz Island and the city’s skyline. Then watch the landscape change as you enter the rolling hills and vineyards of Sonoma County soon after.

Sip on Syrah, chardonnay and pinot noir at your first stop, the Nicholson Ranch Winery. Take a scenic stroll around the property before heading next to Napa’s distinguished Carneros region. There, you’ll sample the organic wines of the family-run Madonna Estate, and learn how winemaking techniques and natural farming affect the flavor and quality of the grapes.

Then head to Yountville, the mecca of Michelen-starred restaurants, to relax and purchase lunch. Be sure to check out the V Marketplace in town, located within the historic Groezinger Winery, where you can browse galleries, restaurants and specialty boutiques.

Afterward, make your way to the family-operated Sutter Home, the second-largest independent winery in the country. Learn about the winery’s history dating back to the late 19th century, and its rise to fame with its zinfandel in the 1970s.

After a leisurely day in wine country, you’ll make the return trip to your hotel in San Francisco. Please note that itineraries are subject to change due to special events at select wineries.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2015

The tour itself was good but the tour company appeared to have no record of our private tour when I went in to Taylor St San Francisco to confirm our booking. They tried to get us to join the coach tour but eventually agreed we were booked on the private tour. The vineyards we went to were not expecting us but to their credit did their best to accommodate us.
