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.

Lunchtime 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.)

Our tour guide Charles, was a big reason we enjoyed this tour so much. Tour was a good length, Charles took the time to explain monuments, shared stories of how things evolved in San Fran, as well as adding some personal flare to the story telling. The tour itself goes everywhere in the city. Also gives good reasonable time at stops to take photos and have a good look. I found that I wasn’t really enjoying San Fran until I took this tour and the information given gave a brand new insight into the city. Definitely book this tour, and get on a bus with Charles if possible!!

"Tour got cancelled less than 24hrs when we are en route to SFO"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed August 17, 2018
Booked well in advance for their tour and paid in full. En route to SFO received Email saying tour has been cancelled due to small number of passengers (this is within 22 hours prior to the tour departure), which left us with no other choice to plan anything alternative. If customer should be penalized for cancelling a booking within 24 hours, shouldn't the company be charged the same penalty if not more?

We took a one way tour to Monterey with this tour company who under difficult circumstances delivered a great outcome. Due to mechanical issues with the bus which I understand was the first in ten years we were delayed until a new bus arrived to facilitate completion of the tour. Management at Tower Tours were quick to express their apologies and reimburse passengers for the inconvenience for which we are extremely grateful.
