Tours are guided through the Napa and Sonoma Valleys and feature a laid-back feeling that is still educational.

Tour participants are treated to a picnic lunch and enjoy tasting, learning and touring the wineries on the trip. Tours are offered for individuals, small groups and for special events including birthdays, weddings and private and corporate functions. Join-in tours are the best option for individuals and you will be paired with a regularly scheduled group of wine enthusiasts visiting the area. Groups tours are private and are arranged around your groups specific needs. All tours can include the visit to the properties, tastings of many of the best wines in the region, the picnic lunch on the grounds of one of the wineries, historical accounts of the area and the wineries, a cheese platter and bottled water on the bus during the tour, sharing time with other tour participants and a driver and tour guide who will bring the experience to life. Tour participants are reminded there may be additional fees for tastings at the wineries.
