We think the best way to visit Napa or Somona is on a small-group wine country tour from San Francisco. It's an easy drive from the city, so you can see a lot in one day, and the small group ensures personal attention and plenty of time for interaction with the expert guide, winemakers, and wine servers.
The small-group Wine Country tours we prefer include lunch, or they cover a lot of different wineries, and may include both Napa Valley and Sonoma. And, if you're pressed for time, Sonoma is close enough that you can easily fit in a visit in half a day!

After being picked-up directly from your San Francisco hotel, you travel by luxury van to the Wine Country's lush, vineyard-covered hills.
There you visit some of Sonoma Valley's top wineries, where you learn about the wines as you taste them. After lunch in a gourmet restaurant, you travel to Napa Valley where you toast the end of your journey with a glass of bubbly at a specially reserved table at Domaine Chandon. This scenery-filled tour is limited to 13 people to ensure personal attention.
Calling all wine lovers – this is another small-group wine tour we like! It takes you to some of the best of Napa and Sonoma wineries.
Although there's plenty of wine tasting, there's also time to enjoy a leisurely lunch at one of the wineries. On the way back, you have the option of ending your tour in Sausalito before taking the ferry back to the city. Includes transportation to and from your hotel.
Journey in a mini-bus through the rolling hills of Sonoma Valley to visit three boutique wineries, sampling five to six tastings of several varietals.
At a family-owned winery in the heart of Sonoma you have the chance to enjoy a picnic lunch. You're free to open a bottle of wine from your purchases, making the picnic even better! There's a stop in Sonoma's downtown to wander, shop and taste cheeses and local, artisanal chocolates. This tour includes hotel pickup and drop-off, wine tastings, picnic lunch, and chocolate & cheese tastings.
Don't have a full day to tour wine country? The Wine Country is close enough to San Francisco that even this half-day tour can take you to Sonoma's hidden, out-of-the-way wineries — making the most of every minute.
You have time to visit two highly-regarded wineries for a flight of tastings at each one. Along the way you enjoy the spectacular scenery as your guide tells you the history of wine making in California and why Sonoma produces some of the best wines in the world. Includes hotel pickup.
