Description

from Ultimate Wine Tasting Tour to Napa & Sonoma Valley
A Wine Lover's Paradise - Enjoy Both Napa and Sonoma Valley's in One Day!

All Wine Tasting Fees INCLUDED in tour price!

Unwind and soak up the stunning scenery as we journey north into Napa and Sonoma Valley, two of the most prized wine regions of Northern California. During your venture, enjoy wine tasting and exclusive estate tours of three of our favored wineries: Madonna Estate, Sutter Home, and Sebastiani Vineyards.

Since 1922, the Bartolucci Family has consistently created a perfect marriage of grapes and wine at Madonna Estate. Located in the world-renowned Carneros region, an area known for its fertile lands and cool climate, the Bartolucci family has found success with their organically grown grapes and Estate Bottled wines. In addition to practicing natural farming methods, they also combine traditional and modern wine making techniques. As the third-oldest wine making family in the Napa Valley, it is important to them that they continue the commitment to farm naturally and preserve the wine making traditions of past generations.

When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.

During a lunch break, we'll make a stop at Historic Downtown Sonoma Square where you will enjoy leisure time to explore. Both destinations afford a wonderful variety of eclectic dining options and one-of-a-kind boutique shops and local art galleries.

With over a century of wine making experience in Sonoma, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery focuses on crafting small lots of premium wines from Sonoma County. Today, Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery advances its record of acclaim under the guidance of vintner and entrepreneur Bill Foley, who acquired the winery in 2008. As part of Foley Family Wines, Sebastiani will maintain its commitment to producing singular wines from the appellations of Sonoma County.

At each winery, you will spend approximately 1-hour for tour and tasting. Sit back, relax, and enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way back into San Francisco.

The Wine Country Tour is approximately 9 hours and is available daily at 9:00 am. The price of the tour includes the wine tasting and touring fees at each winery. Wineries subject to change on holidays or due to special events.

Lunch time is allotted between wineries. (Winery schedule subject to change pending private events at wineries). Lunch cost not included.

Optional Lunch Add-on:
Add lunch onto your day trip with a stop at a local favorite right in the middle of the historic Square in Downtown Sonoma. Enjoy items from a variety of Californian-inspired dishes ranging from Sandwiches, Pasta, and Seafood.
(Optional lunch - $30.00 per person; Includes appetizer, entree, beverage, tax & gratuities.)

What a great tour this was. Yes, it’s a long day, but well worth it, to see the stunning coast on the way to Monterey and Carmel. Our fantastic bus driver/ tour guide Patrick was funny, entertaining, and full of local information on all the areas we passed through on the day. He absolutely made this trip for us. He is such a lovely person with a nice word to say about everyone. He pointed out all the highlights before we got to them so we could take photos. Advised us of the best places to eat in Monterey, and even included Pebble Beach Gold course into our trip for all the golf enthusiasts on board. We saw things we may otherwise have missed if it wasn’t for Patrick’s commentary. Loved his pointers and tips. Monterey and Carmel were fabulous with heaps of time for photo opportunities and shopping. Plus at the end of the tour we were dropped at our hotels. Thanks Patrick, awesome day. This tour company is professional and well organised.

We took 4 tours. City tour, Monterey & Carmel, Muir Woods and Sonoma & Napa wine tour. All were great. Patrick was the driver-guide on 2 of the tours. He was fantastic. I recommend you ask if Patrick is the driver on the tour. They pick you up at your hotel and drop you off at your hotel.

"Great day, great sights "

I did the Monterey-Carmel day tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. From start (motel pick up) to finish (drop off) the service was well organised and professional. Our driver was Patrick. I've been on sight seeing tours with other companies and am often bored silly with their endless talking. Patrick has got it right - he says what needs to be said, or shared, then let's you get on and enjoy the scenery. The buses are clean, as are the windows (for taking photos). That said, the one hour stop at the very exclusive and over-priced shopping centre at Carmel was disappointing and not what I expected to be seeing/doing there. (There was an option to quickly walk 3/4 mile down to the beach - and back again up hill - this wouldn't be suitable for some people). Apart from that, a great company to travel with.

Booked Muir Woods with Tower Tours. Very professional tour company. A must see Muir Woods. Very peaceful place to go to. Three different walking paths to walk. Look for the tree with a opening inside to take a picture. The driver Patrick was excellent and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Highly recommend tour company and tour

"Yosemite in a day"

Unfortunately our program only allowed us a day for Yosemite. You need more than a day. However given this, we thoroughly enjoyed our tour and time in the park. Robert was our driver and guide to and from the park. His friendly and interested style saw the long journey to and from the park a delight, pointing out interesting historical and cultural places and events along the way. Robert ensured everyone made the most our this tour and We loved his choice of background music that punctuated his points of interest. He certainly knew his way around the park and made it easy for us to navigate our walk. Yosemite needs more than a day but this tour was well worth it.
