Discover the wonder of Muir Woods & Wine Country on a Two-Day Tour. Located less than an hour outside of San Francisco, Muir Woods and Wine Country are two of Northern California’s top travel destinations. An overnight stay in the heart of Sonoma Valley allows you to maximize your time in this world-class wine region. It is an ideal place for a romantic getaway. We pride ourselves on being the only Woods & Wine tour to visit both Napa Valley & Sonoma Valley wineries and specially treat you to a sparkling wine tasting. All tasting fees are included on this wine country tour. You’ll even have a chance to tour behind the scenes in the winemaking facilities.
All guests who stay at the Best Western Sonoma Plaza Inn from April 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018 will receive a complimentary Wine Tasting Pass at check in. Enjoy three wine tastings at Sonoma Plaza just steps away from your hotel during your free time!
Day one begins with a short drive across the Golden Gate Bridge to Muir Woods National Monument. We get you to the park before the crowds, providing quality time to hike. You’ll have an hour to explore the Coastal Redwood Sequoia groves, home to the world’s tallest trees.
After an hour or so of hiking, we start our short drive north to the birthplace of California's premium wine industry, Sonoma. Here you'll learn about the process of winemaking while sipping on a variety of fine wines. Later, we will drop you off at your hotel, where you can check in before heading out to the historic Sonoma Plaza in time for lunch.Your hotel for the night is the Best Western Sonoma Valley Inn and it is perfectly positioned just one block from the historic Sonoma Plaza, a square steeped in history and charm.
On the second day, after your complimentary breakfast, you have the morning to yourself. Time to enjoy some of the amenities at the hotel or meander through the historic streets of Sonoma. Around lunch time, the hotel shuttle will drop you back at the plaza where you will meet up with the Extranomical’s group and begin the second part of your tour. Our first stop is the Madonna Estate Winery who has been producing organic wine in Napa Valley for over 80 years. The final wine tasting stop, before heading back to the city, is Cline Cellars, a family-owned and operated winery dedicated to Rhone varietals. Here is an ideal opportunity to grab that ‘selfie’ in the vineyard, stroll the beautiful grounds,feed the carp and meet the miniature donkeys.
Then it is time to head back to San Francisco, keeping our fingers crossed for a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge. Depending on the fog and traffic we hope to stop for one more photo opportunity, looking out above the bridge and across the bay to the San Francisco city skyline. Finally we drop you off at your hotel…. possibly in time for ‘Happy Hour’!
