Visiting San Francisco offers many great opportunities to enjoy the beautiful and fun attractions throughout the city. If you have a day you would like to spend away from the city getting the most out of the area, a San Francisco to Sonoma County Wine Tour may be the right choice for you.
Our wine tours are fully customized to include any part of Sonoma County from the Dry Creek Valley area to the Russian River Valley area. This is the closest wine region to San Francisco and the entire county is steeped with history.
The beautiful Dry Creek Valley provides a fine choice for your private wine tour. With many old vine Zinfandels found throughout this area, you can enjoy the smallest American Viticultural Area measuring only 16 miles long and two miles wide. The area was established in the mid-1800s and has been producing some of the finest Zinfandel wines since.
Within the Dry Creek Valley, two climates are found. The valley floor provides one, while the hillside provides the other. The valley floor is known for creating grapes perfect for white wines, while the Zins and Cabernets dominate the hillside.
As the leader in “eco-tasting,” the Dry Creek Valley area has six wineries participating in this program. Many informative tours and tastings are available throughout.
Another choice for your wine tour in the Sonoma County is is Alexander Valley. This area provides many wine tasting tours in the northern part of the county. The community is very laid back and measures about 22 miles long and seven miles wide making it the largest and most abundant wine region in Sonoma County.
The 15,000 acre area includes varietals of Syrah, Sangiovese and Cabernet Sauvignon. Many award-winning wines come out of this part of Sonoma County in small batches.
The back roads of Sonoma County provide an opportunity to explore the Russian River Valley. A private wine tasting tour through this area will provide plenty of quaint small towns along the way with a number of family-owned wineries.
The Russian River Valley is the largest appellation with a cool climate, which produces a number of varietals, such as Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The growing season is often extended her due to the cooling fogs, which allow the grapes to mature fully.
A private wine tour through the Russian River Valley will provide rolling hills, ancient redwoods and beautiful views along the way. This rich area provides old vine Zinfandels and many other wonderful wines.
Along with your wine tour, you will gain the opportunity to enjoy shopping in some of the small town areas, such as Windsor, Healdsburg, Sebastopol and Guerneville. Dining in one of the fine restaurants found in one of these small towns provides the opportunity to immerse yourself in the culture of the area.
