Spend a day in California's most famous wine region


Visit the world renowned Napa Valley. This wine region produces some of the world's best wine. Combine a day of tasting wine with lunch at one of the many excellent restaurants in the area. Spend some time strolling through beautiful St. Helena or Yountville.

The tour will be customized so you visit wineries you are keen to see or are likely to have wines you will enjoy. If you want to tour one winery to learn more about the winemaking process, I can set that up for you. At the balance of the wineries we visit you will just taste. Most guests visit three or four wineries.

Itinerary

Most of my guests visit three wineries in an eight-hour tour. If there are certain wineries you are keen to see, just let me know and I'll tell you what's feasible. If you tell me a little about your tastes in wine, I can recommend some wineries to visit.

If you would like to tour one winery to learn about the winemaking process, I can set that up for you. At the balance of the wineries we visit, you would just taste. If you've never done a winery tour, it's interesting. If you have taken a winery tour elsewhere, you may want to skip it on this tour.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I will meet you at your hotel or where you are staying in San Francisco.

End location: I will drop you back at your hotel when we are done.

Duration: 8 hours

Transportation

You will travel in a Honda Odyssey minivan that is fully licensed (TCP 16309-S) and is equipped with power sliding doors on both sides, leather seats, and air controls at each seat. The van is very comfortable for groups of up to five people. Groups of six will also find the van comfortable unless the three people who sit in the rear row are all large.

What’s Included

Other: The tour includes transportation in a fully licensed vehicle; my guide services; my time to make winery appointments; and all taxes, tolls, and parking fees.

All costs are included except any winetasting fees and meals.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

125 USD - Winetasting fees and meals are extra. Both may be paid with cash or credit card. This is a rough estimate of the local payments for each person. The amount can vary greatly depending on the wineries you visit and where you lunch.

What’s Extra

Other: Winetasting fees generally run between $20 and $35/person at each winery with reserve wines costing more to taste.

Lunch is extra.
