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.

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.

Customer Reviews

Wine Lover's℠ Luxury Wine Country Tour with Picnic Lunch & 2 Wine Tastings Included
– Dianne M. on 12/13/2017

Our guide, Don, was great! For that extra star add lunch at a wine yard restaurant and better ac in the van
– JCR J. on 12/13/2017

A very enjoyable day with Don acting as a knowledgable and considerate guide. A variety of vineyards, from boutique to a larger corporate enterprise. Don organised a very nice picnic lunch, including a good Pinot Noir to share. He listened and where we wanted change (we suggested a particular vineyard) he adjusted his tour plan to accommodate this. Back to San Fransisco at a reasonable hour so a definite recommendation if you enjoy wine and would like to get a feel of the Napa Valley/Sonoma regions.
– Sandi and David .. on 12/13/2017

The group was early so Frank stopped at some viewpoints where we got some fabulous shots of the Golden Gate Bridge The wineries chosen were unique and I tasted some of the best wines ever at Nicholson Ranch wineries....everyone in the group loved the Chardonnay The lunch experience was a little underwhelming although definitely enough food...maybe some paper plates and forks for the fruit would have helped However the wines and total experience Was fabulous!
– Richie n. on 12/13/2017

Awesome tour !! Small and intimate!!!!!
– Valerie F. on 10/29/2016

This wine tour was outstanding! Don did an AMAZING job of accommodating everyone's requests. Don was very punctual, and expected the same from everyone in the group so that he would be able to accommodate all of the requests. He was knowledgeable about wine, and his stories were interesting. Our group was really fun! I highly recommend this Wine Lover's Wine Tour!
– Damian D. on 07/28/2016

Vlad was a fantastic guide and it really was a great tour.
– Joni F. on 06/07/2016

Frank was great! Personable, informed and knowledgeable, he took us to 4 vineyards, one of which we requested. A great time was had by all!
– Ken K. on 05/15/2016

Everything was great except for the vehicle. It was a little uncomfortable and hot inside.
– Allison K. on 11/02/2015

Phil was an excellent tour guide. He gave us a brief overview of the city as we were heading to the valley and was very knowledgeable about the area. He went above and beyond when he decided to squeeze in an extra winery for us all that had free tastings. In addition, he was courtesy, kind and had a great personality. I would recommend Phil as a driver any-day!
