Day 1 San Francisco-Sausalito-Napa Valley(55 miles)

This custom wine tour caters to YOUR tastes! Depending on the wine regions you decide to visit, you'll spend your morning and afternoon touring and tasting 4-6 wineries. Napa Valley is a bit further away from San Francisco, which means a little more driving and less time for wine tasting. During the driving portion of your wine tour, your guide will fill you in on the colorful history of California's wine industry and the science and art of winemaking.

Our Wine Lover's Tour provides the opportunity to visit many of the popular Napa regions, such as Rutherford, Oakville, St. Helena, Yountville or Stags Leap, and the Sonoma Valley region. We'll make time to picnic at a winery or grab lunch at a favorite local restaurant. Some wineries offer complimentary wine tasting; however, most charge a nominal fee of $5 to $10 (although some famous wineries charge upwards of $25). We suggest a bit of research ahead of time to make sure you're aware of the wine tasting fees your requested wineries will impose on guests. It'll includes picnic lunch and tastings at two wineries with educational sessions just for our luxury tour guests (a value of over $95).

Also, your guide has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the Wine Country and can help your tour group navigate the wine regions, as well as suggest wineries that offer the best views and the best wines at the best value. Think of them as your personal wine country concierge; they are there to make your wine tasting experience remarkable!

This region between San Francisco and Sacremento is internationally famous for its wines, which are considered among the best in the world. Visitors can tour many of the more than four hundred vineyards and wineries that dot the area.
