Enjoy a day tasting some of the best wines in Sonoma with a designated driver!


This tour is focused on the wineries located in Carneros, just south of the town of Sonoma to the northern Sonoma valley. The Sonoma Valley AVA is located between the Napa Valley to the east and the rest of Sonoma county and the Pacific coast to the west. This region is also known as "The Valley of the Moon". The area is known for its unique "terroir" with Sonoma Mountain protecting the area from the wet and cool influence of the Pacific Ocean. The cool air that does affect the region comes northward from San Pablo Bay through the Los Carneros region and southward from the Santa Rosa Plain.
Enjoy a personalized tour planned according to your group's interests. The history, beauty, and great wines will have you wanting to come back!
