Taste the fine wines of Sonoma and Napa Valley with an experienced 5 star private guide.
With a pick up from your location in San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma. . . ? We then set off for California's wine country, visiting both Napa Valley and Sonoma wineries. I will help you find the wines to suit your taste. There are over a thousand wineries to choose from and many require reservations. I will work with you in advance to be sure that we accommodate your 'likes'.
We start in the Napa Valley, visiting one or two wineries before stopping for lunch in the charming, one-time capital of California, Sonoma in the Sonoma Plaza.
After lunch it's time to explore one or two more wineries in Sonoma before returning to your hotel via a photo-stop at the Golden Gate Bridge (weather permitting).
We can 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 changed to fit 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
*A lot of the wineries require tasting appointments reserved in advance. If you have specific wineries that you would like to visit, let me know at the time of booking or in the 'Message' section, so that I can set up appointments or you can leave it to me to select the wineries for you based on your preferences.
