WITH MANY BRAND NAMES, THIS IS A GREAT TOUR IF YOU'RE STAYING IN THE TOWN OF SONOMA!
Climb on board our comfortable passenger van with a handful of other visitors and spend a day exploring the quaint Valley wine country, learning about the wonderful world of wine, tasting wine at several unique wineries, and a gourmet picnic served in the vineyards!
Our small group Sonoma Valley wine tour is just $150 per person and visits at least four different wineries. We frequently start the day with a cave tour at Kunde winery, exploring the family’s long history of grape growing and winemaking in Sonoma. After your tour tour and tasting, we’ll go exploring the popular Sonoma Valley wine region with visits to a few boutique wineries like La Rochelle, Imagery, or Anaba, or some bigger names like Ravenswood, Kenwood, and Chateau St Jean.
Throughout the day your wine educator will entertain you and talk about the rich history of the Sonoma wine country, from the first Spanish grape growers in the area to prohibition and the famous Judgement of Paris that put California on the world wine map. Best of all, your expert wine guide is with you the whole day to answer any questions that come up during your Sonoma Valley winery tour, and make sure that you have the perfect wine tasting experience in Sonoma!
Our Sonoma Valley group wine tours do not include gratuity for your guide or winery tasting fees, which are typically $15-$25 per winery and may be waived with purchase. For lunch you have the option of purchasing a picnic or visiting a local cafe for an unforgettable meal!
