Excellent wine tour. 3 great stops (plus a coffee and lunch break), each adding its own flavor. Loved the pace and length of the tour. Nick our tour guide was awesome and chill. Been on wine tours before and this was definitely my favorite.

Agood day out
Claire_W, Jun 2023
Nick our guide was great very knowledgeable and a good sense of humor. We had a good time visiting the wineries but I thought 2 of them were more interested in selling there product. Overall a good day out to see more of the San Francisco area.
Great wines, amazing tour guide
Rebbie_S, May 2023
The three wineries we visited (Homewood, Peter Cellars, and Seamus) served delicious wines and unique experiences. The growers and workers were entertaining and informative. We certainly learned a lot about the wine making process and how to properly enjoy the wine. Homewood offered very high quality wines at great prices and was our favorite of the wineries. The star of the show was our tour guide, Anthony. Anthony was hilarious, accommodating, and informative. Along with the scheduled tour, he added information about locations which included a fun twist and picturesque scenes. If you are planning on touring boutique wineries, I highly recommend booking a tour with Anthony and this tour company.
Sunny day in May
Don_C, May 2023
Golden Gate Bridge and 3 very different wineries. Our driver/guide Anja gave a wonderful talk as we went thru several areas of San Francisco and a pick up in Sausalito was an added experience. 2 of the three wineries didn’t seem to want our business and one barely communicated with the group other than to introduce his 3 Labs.
Response from Host, May 2023
Hi Don, Thank you for taking the time to offer your feedback and I’m very sorry that two of the wineries did not offer a good experience. If you have the time and are willing to do so please let me know which two wineries you are referring to so that I can follow up with them, our email address is I know one the two wineries with the Labs, but would be interested to know which other one. Thank you for touring with us and for this valuable feedback. Marc
Fantastic day trip!
debbridge, May 2023
We had a fabulous day with Anthony as our guide!! Would definitely recommend this tour as a fantastic introduction tp the wines of Sonoma! Just and all around lovely day!
Wonderful day in Sonoma County.
yoly914, May 2023
Marc was very organized and planned a wonderful day for us. We visited 3 locally owned wineries and we were treated to some excellent wine tastings. We also given history lessons on San Francisco and California wine, with some humor thrown. All together a wonderful day and a great time, thanks Marc.
Excellent hosts, good wine.
Christopher_B, May 2023
We had the most amazing trip, our host Marc had a seemingly bottomless font of knowledge and trivia about San Francisco and the wine regions. The small wineries were all very welcoming and all the wines we tasted were noteworthy. I would wholeheartedly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thanks for taking the time to offer your feedback Chris, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you and Tom. Marc
Heaven in Cali
Johnny_B, May 2023
I really enjoyed the small group tour. The experience was very personably. You got the feeling they were talking to you and not just a group. The wines were very good.
Fun day in Sonoma
Jen_C, May 2023
Enjoyed the small group. Had a blast getting to know people from all over. Nick was great…funny, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. Loved sampling some great wines in the more intimate settings from some of the boutique wineries. Homewood and Wellington were great, Peter Sellers were so.

Kathy_L, May 2023
Had a great day meeting new people and tasting wonderful wine. Anthony our driver was wonderful. Each winery was different and unique in it's own way. At two of the wineries we actually got to meet the Vintners.
Our guide was very easy to be with, fun, knew the wine industry and gave us more than we expected.
Bob_G, May 2023
The ease of arranging the tour and communicating with our guide was great. The wineries that we visited were excellent and we received special service at each one. The day was fun and we felt very special as customers. Highly recommend this tour for wine enthusiasts.
Great tour
Peter_C, Apr 2023
Excellent and enjoyable trip. Our driver Nick was a great guide, really helpful and relaxed. We learned a lot about wine, how to appreciate it and Sonoma on our trip. Highly recommended!
Tourrific Wine Day!!

Anthony was fun and engaged with all the participants. He really made it a good time for us all. Can’t say enough good things about him. 😀😀😀
Great wine and a great time!
Sandra_C, Apr 2023
Mark was a great tour guide! Got to see multiple local wineries serving both reds and white wines as well as explore Sonoma square and Sausalito. Taking the ferry back to SF was well worth it!
Response from Host, Apr 2023
Thanks for taking the time to offer your feedback Sandra, it was a pleasure to spend the day with you. Marc
A very pleasant day with...
Susan_N, Apr 2023
A very pleasant day with pleasant people and excellent guide. Some interesting boutique winery's and dedicated owners.
Superb Tour Host
Joyce_A, Apr 2023
Anthony Firetto was an excellent host. He toured us around San Francisco and gave us the history of certain areas and entertained us the entire time on the ride. He kept us laughing. He's a great photographer and stopped to let us take pictures before arriving at the wineries and took angles we hadn't thought of. Such a pleasure to have met him and had him host our tour.
Great one day wine tour and experience
Carlos_L, Apr 2023

Elaine_A, Apr 2023
Despite the rain, we had a good time. Anthony was very informative about the wineries we would be visiting as well as the area. Unfortunately, when we got home and unwrapped the two bottles of wine from Homewood winery, we only got 1 bottle of the Chardonnay and 1 bottle of Lydia. We had bought 2 of Chardonnay. We now have an expensive bottle of wine we didn't like. We live in Utah so the winery cannot send us a bottle. We would appreciate a refund of that wine. This could be avoided if we had been allowed to inspect our purchases at the winery. Another couple didn't even get their wine that they bought, it wasn't in the back of the van.
Great afternoon
Alexzandria_M, Mar 2023
The experience was very casual and relaxing. Fantastic tour guide that really does enjoy his job and you can tell. He takes you to wineries off the beaten path that are small family owned but each very unique.
Amazing Experience
Alia_K, Mar 2023
Anthony was an amazing guide. Best part was the group experience felt small and we got to know people on the tour. Each vineyard we visited was friendly and knowledgeable. We would take this tour again tomorrow.
Great time!
Lauren_Y, Mar 2023
Anthony was fantastic! It was raining and cold but he made sure that we were comfortable and enjoyed ourselves. I really loved the second winery we went to, Peter Sellers and was glad to discover such a gem. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking for a fun day in Sonoma.

Rainy Day Fun
Shannon_F, Mar 2023
Anthony was delightful. The day was wonderful. Would substitute the last winery for another. The owner left our group midway through for another group so the energy dropped to zero. Peter Cellers, however, was fabulous.
Anthony saved the day
sharron_s, Mar 2023
The weather was so dreadful that one of the wineries on our tour was actually under water but our excellent guide Anthony called ahead and managed to rearrange our trip times and book us in elsewhere. He was very knowledgeable about all the wines and incredibly entertaining. Thoroughly recommend
Small group; Big experience!
Wendy_W, Mar 2023
This was a great way to visit local Sonoma wineries with the added bonus of beautiful Sausalito in a small group setting. Our guide, Marc, did a great job of making it a personal and memorable experience. Get ready for interesting facts, funny stories, trivia, and of course, wine tasting!
Perfect Sonoma experience
Liz_M, Mar 2023
Our tour guide Mark was so great; informative, funny and professional. Love that the tour focussed on small wineries, and that we could choose ourselves where to eat in Sonoma. Highly recommended!!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thanks for touring with us Liz, it was a pleasure to dined the day with you and Claire. Marc
Must book!
Chase_P, Mar 2023
All around great experience. The wineries were all quality and informative and would recommend this to anyone who wants a small group tour. Can’t say enough good things about our guide Anthony. He was entertaining and clearly knew his stuff. All in all it was a great day trip and would book this company again.
Such a fun day out!
Tamsin_C, Mar 2023
We loved our tour guide Nick - such a lovely guy which made the tour :) The wineries were great and all very different. The second was our favourite - we loved Martin and sitting around the fire with the delicious Pinots.
The BEST experience!!!
Lisa_B, Feb 2023
The entire day was amazing! Nick was an awesome tour guide! We highly recommend this experience. You will not be disappointed!!!
Surprisingly good time!
James_S, Feb 2023
Our guide, Nick, was very laid back, knowledgeable and hospitable. We had a small group that turned out to be a fun bunch! The wine stops were all good - I liked that we we’re supporting small growers - and we had plenty of time at each stop as well as for lunch. I would definitely recommend this tour.
