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!
