Overview
Beautiful Sonoma Valley is your destination on this laid-back, fun-filled, all-day tour. You will learn much about the region from your friendly and knowledgeable guide and will have the opportunity to sample many of the delicious wines that have made Northern California a world-renowned wine producing region. You will travel with a small group (limited to 12 people) to three of Sonoma’s finest boutique wineries where you will spend approximately one hour at each winery. This journey also includes a stop in scenic Sausalito, a stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, and a lunch stop in the historic town of Sonoma where you can select from one of the many fantastic restaurants on the square. If you’re feeling adventurous you can even take a walk into the past at Mission San Francisco Solano. Tasting fees at all wineries are included!
Highlights
  • Explore Sonoma wine making region and visit the town of Sausalito
  • Stop for scenic views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge
  • Visit three boutique wineries and taste locally produced wines
  • Convenient round-trip transportation from San Francisco hotels
What to Expect
Start with a pick-up from your San Francisco hotel. Then sit back for a scenic ride out of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge into Marin County. Learn about the area from your guide as you head north to Sonoma. Then stop at two wineries where you do guided wine tastings, sample different varietals, and learn about the wine making process. Next, explore downtown Sonoma with time for lunch (own expense), and peruse historic landmarks gourmet food shops, and upscale boutiques in the plaza. After lunch, enjoy one final wine tasting and then take a short journey to the neighboring bayside town of Sausalito. You have the option to stay in Sausalito and take a ferry ride back across the San Francisco Bay to San Francisco (own expense about $12), or continue on to a lookout with great views of the Golden Gate Bridge before returning to your hotel.

Had a wondeful day. Small group was great, good wines and some different views of San Fran. But most importantly best tour guide I have had and I travel the world frequently. Anthony is a must so when you are booking ask for Anthony.

So sorry, Bridget. We only went on one wine tour (the one that cost $169 per person- Small Group Napa and Somoma). I had already put my review on the wrong wine tour (the wording was confusing) and could not delete it.
