Wineries Extranomical Visits – For more than a decade we’ve been providing quality Wine Country tours from San Francisco and we’ve narrowed the list of winery stops to those which offer the best California Wine Country experience for our clientele. Our select wineries run the gamut from family-owned and boutique to large and grand, but they always must have a friendly atmosphere, and provide beautiful scenery, quality wines and good value.
Extranomical Tours partners with a great combination of wineries in both Sonoma County and Napa Valley for our Muir Woods and Wine Country Escape tour. All wineries offer a variety of local wines and a personalized experience no matter what day you go on the tour. Wineries may change based on availability but you will always experience a warm wine country welcome at each stop! We make sure that the wineries provide a relaxing setting as you indulge in crisp and fine wines and take in the exceptional views of California Wine Country.
The Bartolucci family at Madonna Estate Winery has four generations of winemaking under their belt. Their vineyards are dry-farmed and 100% organic, producing a variety of hand-crafted wines: Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Dolcetto, Barbera, Riesling, Gerurztraminer and Muscat Canelli. Cline Cellars offers classically quaint California Wine Country style, indicative of Sonoma Valley’s earlier days. This family-owned winery specializes in Rhone varietals and sources fruit from Sonoma Valley and Contra Costa County. Mayo Family Winery was founded in 1993 and the family believes that single vineyards produce the highest quality and enjoyable wines.
Redwoods & Wine Country Tours Description - Start your morning exploring the Redwood Sequoia groves in Muir Woods National Monument (approximately 1 hour) before other tour groups reach the park. Muir Woods is home to some of the oldest and tallest trees in the world. Enjoy California’s native coastal flora and fauna: Ferns, oak trees, clover, squirrels and an occasional deer can be spotted.
A short drive North and you’ll spend a relaxing afternoon wine tasting in California’s renowned wine country. We make 4 tasting stops: two wineries in Sonoma County, one at the historic Sonoma Plaza or Healdsburg Plaza and one more in Napa County, spending 45 minutes to 1 hour at each location. It is at the historic Sonoma Plaza, where our optional gourmet food and wine offering will take place. This gourmet food & wine pairing will truly bring your whole California wine country adventure together by giving you a chance to test your newly gained wine knowledge, and enhance your tasting experience to truly master the art of wine and food pairing. Make sure you book the Gourmet Upgrade for this experience!
All of the wine tastings at the wineries are complimentary and you will have a chance to try a variety of delicious wines. The Wine Country Plaza stop is a bit longer, so you’ll have a chance to grab a bite to eat and visit additional tasting rooms (fees may apply) located around the plaza or browse the boutique shops.
On the journey back to San Francisco we’ll make one last stop at a scenic look-out point with sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin Headlands, San Francisco skyline, Alcatraz, and the Bay Bridge.
