California Tour Pricing
As each tour is custom tailored, prices vary depending on the size of your group, your dates and the desired length of your tour.
Prices start from around $20 per person per hour with a six hour minimum. We recommend a nine-hour tour day, which will give you six - seven hours to vineyard hop and roughly two hours for the commute to and from San Francisco. For the scenic Northern Sonoma destinations such as Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley, please keep in mind that the commute time doubles.
- Accompanying sommelier guide
- Wine Tasting 101 / Connoisseur Wine Refresher lesson
- Custom tour planning
- Transportation + Driver (tolls, gas, gratuities included)
- An elegant wine tasting notebook
- Bottles of water and snacks in the car
- Wine tasting fees. These are often waived with the purchase of a bottle of wine, and we'll confirm tasting fees at the vineyards included on your itinerary before the start of the tour.
- Meals. While meals can be organized for your tour at an additional fee, they are not included in the base tour price. We recommend that you have a hearty breakfast before beginning the tastings at the vineyards. On the way up to wine country, we will take you to one of our favorite general stores where you and your group can load up on delicious picnic supplies to be enjoyed at one of the vineyards. We'll provide the picnic blanket!
