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.

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.)

"Muir Woods Tour Rip off"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5

Waste of money and time. You pay $69 to spend 3 hours and 40 mins getting to and from your hotel to then spend only 1 hour and 20 mins in the park. Which cost $10 to enter. So essentially it’s a $59 coach journey with a driver who talks non stop about irrelevant stuff ‘if you park here you’ll get a ticket’ and ‘ I once had an altercation with a cyclist’ You could take the ferry from Fisherman’s wharf to Sausalito and then a free shuttle to the park. A nicer journey and one that saves you money to spend on a nice lunch / dinner in Sausalito.

Forgot to ask to be picked up a hotel when I booked the tickets they said no problem. Seems they had a problem picking us up at the time they gave, no problem again sent an Uber to do it. Bus to Muir Woods was clean, driver drove well and gave a narrated tour. Once at Muir Woods your one your own walk at own pace. Will go again.

We wouldn’t recommend *any* other tour company in San Fran, except this one. From start to finish we received great customer experience. We were kept informed with a clear and detailed itinerary and fantastic energy and enthusiasm from our driver. If anyone is lucky enough to have Patrick as their driver you are in for a treat! His passion for the surrounding areas and main city are second to none whilst we learned a lot of useful information and trivia along the way. We later used another company (part of an organised trip) but it didn’t come close to our experience here. The tour itself is interesting, allowing you to get up close to the coastline and more. It’s a long day of driving but broken up with regular stops and breaks. We will be sure to recommend to family and friends on our return back to the UK :)
