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.)

The Booking/Reservation I booked the tour through GuideYou.com and I was going in hoping that the website was not a scam. Thankfully, it wasn't and I've booked the "COMBO - City Tour & Muir Woods & Sausalito" it leads me to Tower Tours. Tower Tours will be the one conducting the tour on the day. The Tour Because we lived in Union Square, the tour provides a complimentary hotel pick up (PLUS! PLUS! PLUS!) They picked us up at 8:00 am, even though it was early it was convenient for us and my parents. Then we were brought to their office located at Fisherman's Wharf. The tour started on time at 9:00 am. The tour guide was friendly and informative. He even offered to take pictures. There were a few stops to take pictures and we were given 20 minutes max, we stopped at the Palace of Fine Arts, Golden Gate, Golden Gate National Park and Twin Peaks By around 12:00 pm the city tour ended and we were given 1 hour and 15 mins lunch break. We were drop off at their office, which is located at Fisherman's Wharf. We walked to Boudin for 10mins walk. Then we went back to the office for our second part of the tour. The Muir woods was gorgeous and Sausalito was nice too. The tour concluded with a choice of getting back by bus and drop you off at the hotel or by ferry (Additional cost) that will stop at Fisherman's Wharf. We chose to head back with the bus. Dislikes/Concern The only thing that we didn't like was the city tour was too quick and some places they didn't get to stop. If the tour will not make a stop, I wish the bus had an open-air upper deck where we can take pictures. But other than that, It was enjoyable and convenient for my parents. My parents enjoyed it. But for the younger crowd, I would rather take the hop on hop off bus and explore the places myself.

The drivers speed through the city of Sonoma - well above the posted 25MPH speeds. The nieghborhood has complained on multiple occasions, but they don't seem to care. They just collect tourists and their money and drive through local towns without one F given...

"Marco was a lovely guide! The tour was meh"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed May 07, 2019 NEW
We did the wine tour today with Marco, the day was great! All the wine stops were amazing and we stopped for lunch (not included in the tour) at a really great spot. Marco was great, an we got lots of information from him about what we were seeing and winery’s. We had a great day, the sun was out and the wine was plenty.. But if we compare this tour to others we’ve done over USA, it was average. The guide didn’t assist us in taking photos, nor did he learn our names or have any personal conversations/ interactions with the guests. Also, the seat Belts in the bus are not good! They take a lot off effort to take off and are dangerous if you need to get out quickly. Overall, we still had a lovely day, just something could have been better
