Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin with pickup from your Napa Valley hotel. Where you are staying will define the tour region that you will be visiting.  If your accommodations are outside of the winery region, you can arrange to meet us a general meeting spot.

    You’ll visit four charming, backroads wineries and be served a picnic lunch in an idyllic winery setting. Your tour guide will tell fascinating stories and share many interesting tidbits about local history, culture and wine making.

     This is not a smarmy or touristy activity. Our specialty is intimate, light-hearted and truly memorable. This tour is sure to entertain with a very approachable and easy-going style. Discover and savor new experiences tasting some of the world’s most celebrated wines. Our typical guest is not necessarily a wine expert but keen to learn a bit about wine and wine-making, and is open to sharing the experience with a few other like-minded wine adventurers.

    That’s exactly what I did and yes there was pick up. You have to arrange it with them before hand.
