Wine Country One-Day Tours by Bus. Our Wine Country Tour by Bus starts approximately at 9 AM and after crossing the Golden Gate Bridge. It will take about an hour to enter the beautiful Sonoma Valley, where California’s wine industry began in the 1850’s. The tour will visit a total of 3 wineries located in Sonoma Valley and Napa Valley (tasting fees are included at the three winery stops, but not at Vintage 1870). One winery specializes in organic wines, and the other in Zinfandels, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. For lunch, your tour may visit Vintage 1870 in Yountville, located in the old Groezinger Winery building with restaurants and shops where you can buy locally produced olive oil, cheese, etc., and they also have a wine tasting cellar! Or instead, we may stop at the Historical Sonoma Square in Sonoma Valley, where you can do some shopping as well.

After the lunch stop at Yountville, named after George Yount who planted the first grapes in Napa Valley, we will visit another winery. Your Wine Country Bus Tour will return to San Francisco with great views of San Francisco's beautiful downtown skyline and the Golden Gate Bridge.  Hotel drop-offs will usually be between 5:30 and 6:00 pm.

Wine Country Bus Tour available daily except Thanksgiving Day, 
Christmas Day and New Years Day.

Really enjoyable ride, entertaining guide
– Julie B. on 05/21/2016

A really enjoyable day out. We visited 3 wineries. The first was very informative and had a large selection of wines to taste. The second stop was less my taste as it featured sweet and dessert wines and there was less information given at this stop. The lunch stop in Sonoma was a great opportunity to wonder round the lovely town. The final winery was really interesting and good to look around the facilities.
