Take the time to read it- super bummed
, Nov 2021
I booked this trip for my sister trip to celebrate my birthday. It was originally scheduled for Saturday 20th, and they called saying it would need to be moved to Friday unless I wanted to cancel- due to scheduling conflicts. I rearranged our plans to accommodate so we could attend Friday. Our driver was late but did call to let us know- super awesome. We began our journey after we picked everyone up and they were all speaking German the whole time which made us feel left out. When we arrived to the 1st winery - V. sattui- awesome place- we didn’t get to enjoy-we didn’t get to be in the facility tho there was ample space. We didn’t even get to enjoy their amazing our door area, but we were led to the back area with EZ ups in the dirt to be directed through the wine tasting with our driver. We did get the wine from the facility- but it was raining, cold, outside, and in plastic cups and was so uncomfortable and hurried that we left in a rush onto our next spot. Next we went to a private facility Peter something- the guy didn’t talk to us, about his wine, didn’t offer any commentary other than he runs the whole show. Again - outside, but it was a covered patio and had heaters, thankfully. I bet it’s pretty on a clear day. His 4 dogs were beautiful and friendly and jumping on all the guests (which upset some people getting all dirty) with no avail for help. We left quickly. I would not recommend that place. The 3rd winery was Homeland (the only one on the list of where we were told we were going) which was pleasant- fun and engaging operators and I would recommend them. The issue I had more than anything- other than being outside all day in the rain, not having proper hosts for the amount of money that we paid, was the driver was very clear that he was not the original driver and he was filling in and was especially verbal about how important it was that we tipped him -each of us- individually, 20%. He mentioned it at least six times and actually gave us a dollar amount of what was appropriate. At they end of the day, I gave him money, he looked at it, and told me “this was not nearly enough. This was barely enough to cover one person”. It was a $30 tip. He was so aggressive about it, that my sister felt so guilty and pulled out more money to give him. We gave him a $30 tip, that to me was above and beyond for the day that we had just had. then he had the audacity to tell me that it wasn’t enough and that he deserved and needed more. I would not recommend this tour. We had so much fun on the other tour that we did- I would recommend tower tours over this small vintage tour any day. It could have just been a fluke day, but I did not feel taken care of and I felt shuffled around and overall it was terrible birthday experience. I would also like to add that I am in the service industry, and I am very well-versed in wine country, wineries and typical protocol. This was the least kind experience I’ve ever had. Bummer.
An Amazing Experience
, Oct 2021
This wine tour was absolutely amazing. Jerry made this experience one of a kind. He is so knowledgeable about the area and wine so it made the drive up to Napa and Sonoma all the better. I would highly recommend this tour when you are visiting.
Great wine country day.
, Oct 2021
Ulrich was a great driver & a wonderful wine host. He has a wealth of information. I had a wonderful day with new Canadian friends.
Awesome wine tour!
, Sep 2021
Amazing tour! Beautiful wineries with the perfect balance of information and individual time to relax with the group. Kirill was very knowledgeable about SF and Napa, but also very entertaining with his sharp witted commentary. We really enjoyed ourselves and would highly recommend to anyone!
The BEST!!!!

Great tour. Tour guide...

Great tour. Tour guide Jared was very helpful and knowledgeable. Wish we did more wineries with more variety of wines. But overall fantastic
A taste of wine country
, Jun 2021
Jerry was an amazing host. We booked last minute yet the communication was awesome between the company and us. We visited three wineries between Sonoma and Napa. Jerry gave a descriptive tour along the way and at all three wineries. We traveled with our son and met three other couples from around the country and Australia. The wine choices at all were amazing. We had an option to purchase food at the first and third wineries. When booking our trip to the west coast we couldn’t decide whether to visit Napa or Sonoma and this was an excellent way to experience both. We look forward to coming back for a longer visit. The three wineries we visited were Vinansa, Homewood (both in Sonoma) and V. Sattui winery (in Napa). All three were so very different.
Tried to cancel day before, not wineries listed
, May 2021
Owner of company was very rude and tried to cancel the day before. When I complained, he sent a tour guide however the wineries we went to were not the ones listed on this page, they were not “vintage”, they were very cheap. Our tour guide was great, however the company and wineries were very disappointing. I would book somewhere else where you are getting the wineries you paid for.

Dear Allison, our website, our Viator page, and our website say that the minimum number of passengers required to run the tour is 3. I called you two days before the tour and told you that we will have to cancel the tour unless more people book and suggested waiting until the last minute. Two more people booked and the tour took place. it is the busiest weekend and people started coming, however most wineries are either closed or open with limited capacity to keep a social distance so it is impossible to book anything. Also, they significantly raised the prices. even Sattui is now $45. Even with 4 people, I barely make any profit, the satisfaction of my customers is more important than money. That is why I did my best to keep this tour running. I provided my personal car and our best tour guide. I am very sorry you still were so unhappy and feel that I was rude to you. Please accept my sincere apologies. Next time you are in San Francisco, please contact our company so we can do a personal tour for you.
Great experience & guide.

Nice but not the best
, May 2021
Sattui vineyards. Best location of all 3. Very quaint buildings make u feel like you’re drinking in 19th Century England. The other 2 vineyards were not pretty. I tried to book myself since we had a car but the good vineyards w beautiful views and grounds or In castles were booked 1-2 weeks out. When didn’t even go to the places the rep on the phone said we were going to. And we skipped Yountville park. I’d try to find a better group of vineyards

Dear Steven, We are so sorry you are not happy with the tour. After Covid, wineries in Napa significantly increased their tasting fees. Please take another tour with us, we will give you a discoutn.
