    This tour is only offered in English. If needed, we can organize a private tour in other languages. Please also take a look at our Redwoods and Wine Country Escape Tour - it is a great deal and includes complimentary audio tours in 8 different languages.

  • Is it a suitable tour for children?

    Yes, children of all ages are welcome on the tour though drinking alcohol is not permitted for those under the age of 21. If you would like to take your children to the Wine Country, we would suggest to go on our Redwoods and Wine Country Escape Tour instead. It combines the Giant Redwood Sequoias, Sonoma & Napa Valley, so there is more to the itinerary that better suits children. It's a better compromise.

  • What type of vehicle do you use?

    We use our luxury vehicle. It is a 13-passenger van with premium captain seats, additional rear A/C for extra comfort, extra head room, and a sound system.

  • What is the maximum number of people on the Wine Lovers Tour?

    The maximum capacity is 13 passengers; however, like all of smaller group tours, a minimum number of participants are required before the tour can be confirmed. If you have any questions about availability please contact our Reservations staff at: +1-415-357-0700

  • Are wine tasting fees included in the Wine Lovers Tour? If no, how much money do we need for wine tasting?

    No, wine tasting fees are not included, because guests can request different wineries to visit. Wine Tasting fees vary between $5 to $20, depending on wineries chosen. Some wineries offer complimentary tasting and other may charge upwards of $25 per person.

  • What and how many winieries are we going to visit?

    Because this is a semi-customizable tour, wineries from Napa or Sonoma Valley are chosen by those taking the tour. If those on board don't have any particular requests, the tour guide will recommend a variety of wonderful wineries. The tour will visit 4 to 6 wineries, depending how much time guests would like to spend at each winery.

  • Does the tour go to both Napa and Sonoma?

    The tour is semi-customizable which creates a flexible itinerary and the ability to accommodate requests from those on board. The group on the day of may choose to go to Napa, Sonoma, or both.

  • Can you guarantee our winery requests?

    Your guide will do his/her best to satisfy your winery requests. However, the wineries we visit will depend on the day and if there are any events occurring in the Wine Country. Occasionally, a winery on our tour may be closed for a private event so we cannot guarantee all winery requests.

  • What if I don't have any winery requests?

    If you don’t have any winery requests, our guide will give you recommendations. He/she has a wealth of knowledge and experience in the Wine Country and can help you navigate the wine region as well as suggest wineries that offer the best views and the best wines at the best value.

  • What happens if I don’t have or forgot to bring a valid ID? Is it still possible to participate in the wine tasting?

    In the U.S. it is important to have a valid ID if you want to consume alcohol. If you forget to bring your valid ID, you will not be allowed for wine tasting.

  • Is lunch included in the Wine Lovers Tour and where are we going to have lunch?

    No, meals & wine tasting fees are not included on the tour. The group can choose where to go for lunch. Otherwise, the guide will decide on a nice plaza or location with several selections for lunch.

  • Can we buy food or do we have to bring our own lunch?

    You are more than welcome to bring your own bagged lunch though there will be a lunch stop for you to purchase lunch in the Wine Country.

  • Do we stop in Sausalito?

    A stop in Sausalito is optional and you can also choose to take the ferry back to San Francisco (ferry fare not included).

  • Why should I stay in Sausalito and take the ferry instead of taking the bus back to San Francisco?

    Sausalito is a beautiful city North of San Francisco. It is well known for its beautiful views, boutique shops and art galleries. There are a lot of first-class restaurants with food from around the world. Taking the ferry back to San Francisco also allows a relaxing experience on the boat and offers a different yet fantastic view of San Francisco from the water.

  • Is the ferry ticket included in the price of the tour? If not, how much does the ferry cost from Sausalito to San Francisco?

    No, the ferry ticket is not included in the price of our tour. Ferry services vary but it is around $!0 for adults. Prices are subject to change without notice and Extranomical Tours is not responsible for passengers that depart from the tour at this stage.

  • How long does the ferry take from Sausalito to San Francisco?

    The ferry takes about 25-30 minutes.

  • What is the difference between the Wine Lover's and the Wine Country by Bus tour?

    The Wine Lover's Tour is on a luxury vehicle with a maximum capacity of 13 passengers. It is a semi-private tour that allows more flexibility to alter the itinerary and request specific stops and wineries. The Wine Country Tour by bus is on a large motor coach, holding up to 50 passengers, and has a fixed itinerary. It also only visits 3 wineries compared to 4-6 wineries on our Wine Lover's Tour.

You don’t have to be a wine connoisseur to enjoy this Wine Lover’s Tour; simply a fresh and eager palate will suffice. Our Wine Lover’s Luxury Wine Country Tour is a small group, luxury tour that visits Napa ValleySonoma Valley, or in some instances, both. You’ll be able to visit wineries large and grand as well as boutique and family-owned wineries that are off the beaten path of large tour buses. 

Your guide will carefully pre-select the first two wineries for you, making sure you learn about the wine making process first-hand from winemakers'. By special arrangement, we have organized a unique in-depth tour of a wine cellar, a cave or barrel room. You even get a chance to take part in a unique barrel tasting! These carefully sourced wineries sell only on site -- you'll not find their wines at retail. Later, enjoy a picnic lunch at a winery, arranged by your guide, with sandwiches, wraps and/or salads! In the afternoon, continue your luxury experience and visit two more unique wineries. We would like to hear what kind of wine you like to taste and appellations you like to visit so that we can arrange the stops according to your preferences. 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 experience based on your preferences. Think of them as your personal wine country concierge; they are there to make your wine tasting experience remarkable!

Let us know what kind or wine and appelations you like.  If you email us at [email protected], we will let the guide know. Please note that most wineries charge a wine tasting fee of $20 to $40.  

Tour is available Thursday through Sunday only.
