Overview
Join us on a fun and relaxing Napa Valley Wine Tour on one of our luxury coaches. During our full day tour from San Francisco, you will visit renowned Napa Valley and Sonoma Wineries for tasting, learn about winemaking techniques, and shop for wines and souvenirs in local shops. Taste the finest wines of Napa Valley, have lunch and shop in Yountville or Sonoma Square Plaza, and enjoy the picturesque drive over the Golden Gate Bridge through fantastic Napa Wine Country on our wine country tour.

Napa and Sonoma are world-famous for their fine wine and beautiful scenery. Learn about wine from our expert guides as you travel north to California’s Premiere wine country. Then tour wineries and see how grapes are picked, crushed, blended and bottled; walk through beautiful vineyards with your tour guide and then taste the finished product. There will also be time for lunch at Historical Sonoma Square or Vintage 1870 in the heart of Napa.

What to Expect
Depending on which option you selected, get picked up at your hotel, the airport, or a central spot in San Francisco. Once you board your luxury coach bus, sit back and relax on the reclining seats. Pass over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way to your first stop in Sonoma, Nicholson Ranch Winery. Your guide tells you all about the area’s history as you make the drive. At Nicholson Ranch Winery, taste its wines and take in stunning views of the vineyard. Next up is Madonna Estate Winery in Napa, where you’ll do a wine tasting and also learn about their winemaking process. Afterward, take a break at Sonoma Square Plaza to snag lunch (at your own expense) before heading over to the super-popular, Sutter Homes Winery.
