Visit Sonoma Valley Wine Country - The Perfect Romantic Getaway

Located an hour north of San Francisco, the Napa and Sonoma Wine Country is world-renowned for its fine wine, its rich history, and its astonishing beauty. Incredible Adventures offers you multiple options to tour California’s Wine Country, providing you with round-trip transportation in our small-group Biofuel mini-coaches (petroleum free)!

Our Napa and Sonoma Wine Education Tour is designed to increase your knowledge about wine making “from roots to glass”, detailing the history of wine in California. A tram tour of the Benziger Family Winery is a highlight of this day. In line with our environmental ethos, Benziger Family Winery uses certified Biodynamic (organic and sustainable) farming methods to grow their award-winning wines. You will see (and taste wine in) both Napa and Sonoma Counties on this full-immersion tour.

If you want to learn some natural history and get ‘outdoors’ as well as taste fine wine, our Muir Woods and Sonoma Wine Country and Beer Tasting Tour is your best choice. A relaxing walk amongst the giant redwoods of Muir Woods National Monument is a great way to start the day, and the comfortable, relaxed pace of Sonoma will complete your afternoon! You will taste wine at several small- and medium-production wineries and even check out a brewery! Explore their tasting rooms, learn the stories of their heritage, and still be back in San Francisco in time for a late dinner…perhaps with a new bottle of wine or beer?

If you want to truly savor the fruits of wine country (pun totally intended), stay overnight in a cozy hotel and enjoy BOTH of these itineraries in your two days away from the city! With a visit to Muir Woods and both Sonoma AND Napa Valleys and your hotel room INCLUDED, this is truly the all-access pass you need to make the most of your time in Wine Country. Incredible Adventures can also custom design a Private Wine Country Charter in one of our Biofueled Vans or Minibuses to accommodate your family, group of friends or organization. Cheers!

Just an hour north of San Francisco are the rolling hills and tree-lined valleys of Sonoma County, which is often called the birthplace of the California wine industry. The county of Sonoma has over 370 wineries in 15 distinct wine-growing areas in a total area just slightly larger than the state of Rhode Island.

The first wine-producing grape vines were planted by the Spanish missionaries in 1832 at their northern mission of Solano in northern Sonoma county. But it was in 1855 that a Hungarian by the name of Agoston Haraszthy arrived with thousands of grape varietal cuttings from France, Italy, and Spain. Also known as the “Father of the California Wine Industry”, Haraszthy founded Buena Vista winery and it was his report and experience that all but proved that fine wine could be produced in Sonoma County just as well as in Europe.

Sonoma county has a wide range of climates ranging from the cool foggy coastline to the warmer inland valleys, which allow for a variety of grapes to thrive here. The primary wines produced are Chardonnay, Zinfandel, and Pinot Noir.

Sonoma County offers much more than just wine. There’s something here for everyone. From organic farms and dairy ranches to apple orchards and vineyards. From quaint towns nestled among redwood groves to the serene Russian River which flows into the mighty Pacific Ocean, Sonoma is full of picturesque landscapes that draw in thousands of visitors each year.
