Travel deep into the vines of Sonoma's wine country to premium tastings at boutique wineries. As part of the tour, our guests will be guided through the gothic chambers of a wine cave and be treated to a barrel tasting from one of the oak casks. Traveling over hill and dale in a carriage pulled by two magnificent horses, you'll enjoy tastings at 3 award-winning wineries, receive a discount on wine purchases, and be served a lavish, locally-sourced gourmet picnic in a setting featuring a stunning view. Chilled spring water is available on board. Enjoy the relaxed pace, breath-taking scenery and world class wines while leaving the traffic far behind. Your coachman will provide an insider's view of the local history, the lifecycle of the vines, and the wine-making process. This is more than a wine tour -- it's a unique and romantic wine tasting adventure! Check out our web page at TheWineCarriage for tour details and a bonus tasting.

The Wine Carriage is a magical ride through some of Sonoma's best vineyards! Bret is a wonderful host who is full of knowledge and stories about the area. And the horses are beautiful as well. I can't wait to do it again!
