Napa & Sonoma Valley Wine Education Tour

Napa Valley Wine Tour - Incredible AdventuresThis is not an ordinary Napa Valley Wine Tour. Go beyond tasting and fully immerse yourself in the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country on this fun and educational tour of both Napa and Sonoma Valley! After a pickup from your SF hotel, you’ll set forth on a picturesque drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and through the Marin Headlands into California’s amazing and beautiful Wine Country.

Here you will learn about the art and science of biodynamic winemaking. Follow the winemaking process from roots to glass and see how wine is made, bottled, aged, and distributed. Finally, back in the tasting room, you can enjoy the fruits of these labors!

After the vineyard tour (including tastings at Benziger and their sister winery Imagery), relax with a tasty picnic lunch (INCLUDED) at a local winery. In the afternoon, you’ll head out to other favorite locations in Sonoma and Napa Valleys for more tasting and exploring.

Sample Itinerary

8:15am – 9:30am: Pick up from San Francisco hotels
9:30am – 10:15am: Head north across the Golden Gate Bridge. You will be immediately rewarded with sweeping views of the San Francisco Bay: Alcatraz Island, the city skyline, and the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean. Next, we’ll wind our way through the coastal mountains of the Marin Headlands and past Mt. Tamalpais, leaving the rush of the city behind and setting the pace for a relaxing day out in the country.
Once in Sonoma County, dairy farms and vineyards provide an inspiring introduction to the rolling hills and beautiful valleys that have supplied the world with fantastic wines for over 60 years. Your professional guide will give you details about the region, wine, and the day’s itinerary so that you can truly appreciate your experience.
Approx. 10:30am: Arrive at Benziger Family Winery & Biodynamic Vineyard and check-in for your tram tour.
11:00am – 12:00pm: Enjoy a close-up look at the vineyards, fermentation facility, and crush pad on a comfortable fully-guided tram tour. You’ll also have a chance to walk through their wine caves! The tour is approximately 45 minutes long, and includes a special tasting of Benziger’s biodynamic and other award-winning wines.
12:00-1:00pm: After your tasting, enjoy your picnic lunch in a quiet spot at one of the local wineries, surrounded by views of the beautiful countryside and vineyards.
1:00pm-5:00p: In the afternoon, you will head over to Benziger’s sister winery Imagery for another take on California wine-making. Then, head out to famed Napa County for more wine tasting in Oakville, Yountville, or in the town of Napa. The landscape of rolling hills laced with rows of wine grapes is impressive and will provide a romantic backdrop for memorable photographs.
5:00pm-6:00pm: On the return trip, you’ll make one more photo stop above the Golden Gate Bridge – a must-do if you’ve never witnessed the awe-inspiring view of San Francisco from the Marin Headlands!
6:00pm-6:30pm: At the end of the tour you will return to your San Francisco accommodations.
