- Enjoy the ability to request winery stops

This Wine Lover's Luxury Wine Country Tour has the flexibility to visit Napa Valley, Sonoma 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 spend some time in the first hour taking requests and discussing the options. If you’d like to expedite this process, you can get your winery requests in ahead of time by emailing [email protected]. We work hard to entertain all requests and meet consensus with your tour group in order to maximize time in wine country.
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.
Extranomical’s 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 fee of $15 to $25 (although some famous wineries charge upwards of $30). 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. 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!
How we select our Wine Lover’s Luxury Wine Country Tour Stops:
California has over 1400 Wineries, the majority of which are located in Sonoma and Napa Valley. Our guide will first narrow down the list to those within a reasonable distance, maximizing your time wine tasting rather than driving. We have over a decade of experience touring the wine country and within this time, we’ve compiled a list of our favorite wineries, offering exceptional wines, gorgeous scenery, friendly service, interesting history, and great values. Here’s our current list of wineries we think are pretty awesome. Keep in mind we can’t possibly visit all of these wineries on a single tour, but this gives you an idea of where we may end up when you travel with us.
