Enjoy the Napa Valley from the Horse's View. Join us on a rustic tour traversing through the rolling vineyards and countryside of Chateau Lane Winery. You will enjoy a 45 minute ride through the Vineyards over-looking the beautiful scenic countryside of the Napa Valley. Throughout the tour our experienced wranglers will introduce you to the world of the Wine Industry, grape varietal grown on our property while providing information about the history of Rapp Ranch which at one point was the largest Quarter Horse breeding facility in Northern California. We will share with you harvesting techniques and winemaking facts of Chateau Lane Winery while you enjoy riding. You will spend approximately an hour and a half with the horses. Prior to the ride, we will introduce you to the horses that we will be using on the tour, tack-up and then take you down to our large covered arena for a short safety lesson in addition to answering any questions that you may have prior to your ride. As soon as you are comfortable we will then leave the arena and start the 45 minute ride through the Vineyards. We offer Romantic Sunrise Rides and/or Sunset in addition to the leisurely family ride. We pride ourselves in offering a unique ride for your party. You will end your horse riding tour wine tasting with a bottle of wine or on the beautiful Chateau Lane Winery patio with a wine tasting or upgrade to an exclusive food pairing package. Please call us to book you're tour and/or discuss available upgrades. *Please Note: All riders must be under 230 lbs., All riders must wear closed toed shoes without heels and jeans.

Fantastic was to see the vineyards. You are taken out in the vineyards for about an hour on horseback. The guide was friendly and passionate about the horses. Views are excellent. It is a bit expensive - but most things in Napa are!

Had a wonderful time riding on Saturday morning --- overcast, windy, and hardly anyone out. It all cleared as we were returning, and guide gave us time to prance on the beach. Wonderful ride with a trusting guide who respected our intermediate riding experience.

The ride was a slow walk around the vineyards, took less than an hour. It is a nice way to explore and get closer to the wine district but somewhat pricey unless you book the wine tasting ride, which turns the whole experience unforgettable. The...More
