Tour Length: 9 hours
Take a step outside San Francisco and spend your day discovering the rustic and regal valleys of one of California’s top wine countries, Sonoma County. Experience three wine tastings at three unique wineries, a lunch stop in historic Sonoma village, a drive through Sausalito, and a photo stop at the Golden Gate Bridge.
Your tour guide picks you up in a comfortable van, where you can sit back and enjoy the beautiful ride to Sonoma. Visit three locally owned and operated wineries, learn about their wine philosophies, and enjoy tastings at each one. We stop for a delicious lunch in Sonoma village before visiting the iconic Golden Gate bridge. Get the best of Sonoma and San Francisco on this comprehensive wine tour!
Your guide is an expert on the area and can share interesting information along the way, find the best spots for photos, and make recommendations for the rest of your visit. The small group sizes mean that you can get personal attention from your guide and enjoy your time as a group.
Sonoma is one of the best places in the state to taste wine, and we show you everything it has to offer.
Tasting fees are included in the tour price!

Do you do hotel pick-ups?
We pick up at most downtown San Francisco hotels. We do not, however, pick up at all hotels outside the Downtown/Union Square/Wharf areas or outside the city. For those staying outside the city (e.g., near the airport or in any of SF’s neighboring cities), public transportation that takes you into San Francisco is usually nearby!
Do you pick up at Airbnb locations?
We pick up at some Airbnb locations. Email us the address of your unit and we can let you know! (Some Airbnbs are located in remote parts of town. If you’re considering Airbnb for lodging, feel free to contact us anytime for location advice.)
What time is my pick-up?
Pick-up times are between 8:10 and 9 a.m. The day before your tour, you receive an email from us with your specific pick-up time.
Can we be dropped off in a location other than where we were picked up?
Of course! You can be dropped off at most Fisherman’s Wharf or Union Square areas! Also, you’re welcome to be dropped off in Sausalito on your return. The ferry leaves Sausalito for San Francisco fairly frequently and costs about $11-13!
Are food or beverages allowed on the vehicle?
Yes, indeed… It’s a wine tour! We’re a fully licensed tour operator, so feel free to bring breakfast food or beverages (coffee/tea) along for the one-hour ride to Wine Country and open a bottle of your latest purchase on the ride home.
