    Really loved the tour. I would recommend to replace the Sutterhome winery with something similar to BR Cohen. BR Cohen was by far our favorite. Our tour guide was amazing.

    Antonio was our tour guide on this wine country tour. It was our favorite tour of our trip and we went on many. He was just the right amount of funny and informative. We enjoyed him very much! And the wineries were amazing and everything was delicious! I've never been a fan of reds but the ones on our tour were amazing.

    It was all memorable, from the moment of pick up to moment of drop off! Loved traveling across the bridge, getting out to take photos. Beautiful day to see SF and the bridge! Greg was an exceptional guide with a wealth of information and knowledge of the area. The Napa valley and Sonoma were beautiful! Great wineries! Lunch at Sonoma Plaza was really good. Lots of choices of places to eat! And plenty of time to explore before heading on to our last winery of the day! Wines were all good…plenty of pours! The drive back was relaxing and comfortable! Would absolutely do it again and would highly recommend this tour!!

    Roche winery, our first...

    , Oct 2021
    Roche winery, our first stop, was well worth the trip - joined their wine club and would definitely go back. The other two were okay but the wine was not nearly as memorable (or as plentiful). Lunch in Sonoma at The Red Grape was excellent with a bit of time to stroll around. The bus driver was outstanding with a wealth of information.
