Red, White, Sparkling ?

We will visit 2-3 wineries in the Napa valley plus time for lunch. You'll feel like you're in Tuscany. I would confer with you and plan a custom tour for you. This is a unique vacation experience.
The valley is over 20 miles long. Drive times from San Francisco can be 60 minutes and longer.
A wine tasting can take 60 minutes. A winery tour, which includes a tasting, can last 60-90 minutes.
I prefer to make reservations at wineries to avoid crowds and increase the amount of personal attention you get.


This is a hypothetical Napa tour : All times approximate
8:30 Departure
10:00 1st winery (to be discussed prior)
11:00 Depart
11:30 2nd winery
12:30 Depart
12:45 Lunch - Cal cuisine, Italian or French ?
2:00 Depart
2:30 3rd winery
3:30 Depart
5:00 Arrive SF

Destinations can include Far Niente, Trefethen, Saintsbury, Domaine Carneros, Miner, Nicholson Ranch, Darioush, Cakebread, Stags Leap or any winery that you're interested in. I prefer to visit wineries that require reservations so you get more personalized attention and less of a airport terminal feeling.

I would schedule a sumptuous lunch for Italian, French or Cal cuisine.

I talk with my clients prior to the tours to verify preferences.

A Recent Review of this tour

Gary is one of the gems of San Francisco. He was professional, kind, courteous and on point for every aspect of the tour. It was effortless and allowed for the full enjoyment of the tour. He is local who knows the City as if it were his own. He educated on the past and present of the city and all of its charm. Really quite an amazing experience and I will always turn to Gary for our guide of choice when back in SF. Thank you so much Gary, my partner and I truly loved the tour and loved you. Cheers :)
