Picnic Lunch

We provide you with a picnic lunch at one of our premium Napa Valley wineries during the tour.

The lunch will include meats, salads and fruit. It's great to grab a bottle of wine from the winery you are visiting during your lunch and share it with others on the tour.

Either way, while you are having your Napa Valley lunch, it will be in the most serene vista with rolling hills in the foreground and background while you sit on a picnic lunch table. The picnic lunch portion makes for a great day.

Even though we are providing lunch, we always recommend eating a good breakfast the morning of the tour given how much wine our wineries may pour during the tour.

Napa Winery Spotlight
Barrel tasting experience

Barrel tasting is now offered on this wine tour!

For red wines, controlled oxidation takes place during barrel aging. This very gradual oxidation results in decreased astringency and increased color and stability. It also evolves the fruit aromas to more complex ones.

Experience the fresh fruity-taste of wines straight from a barrel.

Not a Big Motor Coach! – Can go to small places

We don't use motor coaches on any of our tours – we use smaller, lower to the ground shuttles.

Many Napa Wine Tours from San Francisco tend to use large high-off-the-groundr motor coaches where they might pack in as many as 55 passengers, and as a result cannot go to most wineries or get the best wine tour experience.

Shuttles make for great wine tours!
