At each, you'll enjoy 3-5 tastings of their signature blends. All wine tasting fees are included in the tour price. This tour also includes an exclusive estate tour - you'll discover the inner workings of the wineries and their family history in Napa & Sonoma Valley, as an expert wine host walks you through the fermentation process, barrel aging, bottling, and of course tastings of some award-winning varietals! The day concludes with a scenic drive back over the Golden Gate Bridge and back to Stop #1 in San Francisco as the sun slowly starts to set into the Pacific Ocean.

On the Full-Day Wine Tour (duration 9 hours) you'll visit 3 of our winery partners (Madonna Estates, Muscardini Cellars, Sutter Home, and Ru Vango Winery) with about an hour at each winery for exclusive wine tastings (3-5 per winery), estate tours and insights into grape growing, natural farming and wine-making techniques. All tasting fees are included in the tour price. At lunch, you'll stop at historic downtown Sonoma Square where you'll have free time to explore or enjoy some lunch. There are lots of wonderful dining options, one-of-a-kind boutique shops, and local art galleries.
