Wine Country Tours
Discover the good life in the California Wine Country. Situated an hour north of San Francisco, Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley are the heart and soul of the California Wine Country. A Wine Country tour from San Francisco is a top attraction when visiting the Bay Area.
California’s Wine Country has grown tremendously, in 1975 there were only about 25 Napa Valley wineries; today there are 400+ wineries scattered throughout Napa and Sonoma. Although the food and wine culture is ingrained in the California Wine Country economy, visitors will find a plethora of activities other than wine tasting. There are extensive opportunities for hiking and bicycling, relax in natural hot springs or take in the historic sites like the Sonoma Mission.
California Wine Country is a “Foodie Haven”; notable chefs and restaurateurs have established themselves in the Wine Country, including the likes of Thomas Keller, Iron Chef Morimoto, Pat Kuleto & Charlie Palmer. Be sure to book your restaurant reservation months in advance if you plan on dining at a famous restaurant. Even on a Monday night you’ll be disappointed to find The French Laundry completely booked.
California Wine Country tourism does have its downside, traffic congestion on State Route 29; particularly during summer weekends can be intense. A great travel tip is to schedule your Wine Country tour on a weekday, so you’ll maximize your time at the wineries. Selecting a tour company to show you around Napa or Sonoma is probably your best option for visiting the wine country. San Francisco tour companies have partnered with local wineries to bring you an ideal wine tasting experience. You’ll visit palatial wineries and tasting rooms to family-owned boutique wineries. Wine Country tours ensure a relaxing afternoon wine tasting, strolling the vineyard grounds, browsing boutique shops & savoring California Wine Country delicacies.
