Each location will offer a friendly staff and personal experience as you sample five to six award-winning varietals at each.

This was a fantastic tour! We went to some smaller vineyards which made the tastings more intimate. Skip, our tour guide, was funny, knowledgeable, and made the day truly enjoyable. I accidentally left something on the tour bus after he dropped us off at our hotel, and he went out of his way to return it to me at my hotel on his own time. I highly recommend this tour - you'll love it!

Really great day out. Visited three vineyards and sampled some great wines but that wasn't the highlight. Dylan, our guide, was knowledgeable, approachable and, more importantly, an absolute riot. Fantastic vibe amongst the group which was held together by Dylan's singing, story telling and appalling attempts at our various accents. If you've got a spare day in SF, do this tour and, if you're lucky, you might get Dylan and his really dodgy English accent!

Chris was very knowledgeable about San Francisco, Sonoma and provided interesting information about wine, how it is grown and the best way to taste. My daughter and I didn't have much sleep the night before but Chris was able to get us out of our funk with his hummer and uplifting personality! We got way more for our then anticipated!

Excellent tour. We were picked up from our hotel and there began a wonderful day. A photo stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, and we were on our way to Sonoma. Visited three different wineries. All had their own characteristics. Great ambiance and great wines. Our guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the wine making process. Very entertaining and familiar with the wineries we visited.

Got picked up right on time in a new 14 seat comfortable van. If there were issues about being cramped they fixed them as it was not cramped at all. Carson, our guide/driver was awesome!!! He was low key, funny, approachable, informative and kept us right on schedule.
