Meet your driver-guide upon hotel or ferry pickup, and settle into your comfortable limo-style transport (type of vehicle depends on the size of the group) for your tour of Napa Valley, where you can taste premium wines from wineries that are popular with locals and focused on hospitality.
Four to five Napa wineries are selected by your guide, who mixes well-known hotspots with some charming hidden treasures. Possible stops include Madonna Estate Winery, Hagafen Cellars and Domaine Chandon. (Note: wine-tasting fees are not included, giving you the flexibility to decide what you want to try.)
Throughout the tour, your guide shares extensive knowledge about this world-renowned grape-growing region and provides insight into the winemaking process as you make the 6-hour journey from grape to glass. A mid-afternoon lunch is served picnic-style before you continue to more wineries. The tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
Sample lunch menu (subject to change):
- Turkey roll
- Olive pasta
- Mozzarella-basil skewers
- Falafel, dolmas and hummus
- Chocolate-coated strawberries
