GREAT HOSPITALITY AND INCREDIBLE WINES ABOUND IN NORTHERN SONOMA!
JUST $100 PER PERSON FOR A FULL DAY WINE TASTING TOUR IN NORTHERN SONOMA WINE COUNTRY
Climb on board our comfortable passenger van with a handful of other visitors and spend a day exploring the majestic Sonoma wine country, learning about the wonderful world of wine, and tasting wine at several welcoming wineries!
Our Northern Sonoma wine tours are just $100 per person and visit at least four different wineries in the friendly Russian River, Dry Creek, and Alexander Valley wine regions of Sonoma. This tour is available if you are staying in Sonoma County, with hotel pickup available from Petaluma to Healdsburg, including Windsor, Rohnert Park, and Santa Rosa.
Throughout the day your wine educator will entertain you and talk about the long history of winemaking in Sonoma, and teach you everything from wine tasting to wine production and grape farming. You'll often get to tour the wine production area of a larger brand name and see how grapes turn into wine, and if you are here during harvest you may even get to stomp on some grapes!
After one winery tour, it’s on to wine tasting and exploring the back road wine country with visits to "boutique" small production family wineries, the true hidden gems of Sonoma County wine country! With your expert wine guide at the wheel, our small groups visit many family run wineries and love to show you what happens behind the scenes in the wine world. The wineries we visit are always welcoming, and often find something special to pour just for our guests!
Best of all, your expert wine guide is with you the whole day to answer any questions that come up during your Sonoma winery tour, and make sure that you have the best wine tasting experience in Sonoma County!
Please note that our Northern Sonoma group wine tour does not include gratuity, wine tasting fees, or lunch.

For lunch you can purchase local Sonoma County cheese and fresh bread or a gourmet sandwich to a picnic in the vineyards, or visit one of the many outstanding Healdsburg restaurants for an unforgettable meal.
