Itinerary
Depending on which option you selected, get picked up at your hotel, the airport, or a central spot in San Francisco. Once you board your luxury coach bus, sit back and relax on the reclining seats.

Pass over the Golden Gate Bridge on your way to your first stop in Sonoma, Nicholson Ranch Winery. Your guide tells you all about the area’s history as you make the drive. At Nicholson Ranch Winery, taste its wines and take in stunning views of the vineyard.

Next up is Madonna Estate Winery in Napa, where you’ll do a wine tasting and also learn about their winemaking process.

Afterward, take a break at Sonoma Square Plaza to snag lunch (at your own expense) before heading over to the super-popular, Sutter Homes Winery. Enjoy time in the tasting room, and hear stories about this family-run winery.

Your tour ends with a drop-off back in San Francisco.

Please note: Depending on the day of your tour, the order of the wineries you visit as well as which wineries you visit could change depending on availability and other determining factors.
