The Best Wine Tour in Northern California!

Whether this is your first time to Northern California's beautiful wine country or you have visited the region before prepare to spend a very enjoyable day taking in the scenery and tasting world-renowned wines with a local who has over a decade of experience as a driver & tour guide in the region.

With over 1000 wineries, from boutique family-run operations with rustic tasting rooms to large, commercial operations with beautifully landscaped gardens, wine caves and stunning tasting facilities the possibilities are endless. The many scenic towns in both Sonoma and Napa offer lunch options to suit all tastes and preferences. Along the way, you will learn much about how wine is made and what makes this area so perfect for the production of wine.

I will work with you to create a customized itinerary that suits your exact interests and preferences.

I can even include a winery and/or cave tour if you would like to take your knowledge to the next level.


Typically we will visit 3-4 wineries on this tour, depending on travel time, where you would like to go and how much time you would like to spend at each winery/location.

The following is a basic itinerary that can be customized based on your preferences:

9:00am - Pick up at your accommodation in San Francisco, Marin, Sonoma or Napa
10:30am - Winery #1
11:30am - Winery #2
1:00pm - Lunch
2:30 - Winery #3
3:30 - Winery #4
5:30/6:00pm - Drop off at your accommodation

*Most wineries require tasting appointments reserved in advance so If you have specific wineries you would like to visit I can set up appointments or leave it to me to select wineries for you based on your preferences.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will pick you up from your hotel or accommodation anywhere in the city of San Francisco and most locations in Marin County, Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley.
For other locations in the Bay Area there may be an additional charge for travel time.

End location: I will drop you off where you were picked up or at an alternate location in the area.

Duration: 8 hours


You will travel in a Ford passenger van with seating for up to 13 people (bench seating). This is a large, comfortable, reliable vehicle with air conditioning. The van is commercially insured and licensed by the Transportation Commission/Public Utilities Commission.

What’s Included

Transportation for the day and the services of a fun, professional, easy-going, experienced local tour guide.
Chilled bottled water will be provided.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

125 USD - Wine tasting fees and meals are not included in the price as these costs will vary dramatically based on the wineries selected and where you choose to have lunch. Wineries typically charge $15-$50 per person for tasting. Some wineries will not charge a tasting fee if wine is purchased. I can help select wineries and dining options that are consistent with your budget for the day.
