3. San Francisco: Napa and Sonoma Valley Wine Country Day Tour

On your Marks, Get Set, Taste!

Today, after carefully rejuvenating the estate vines, limiting yields, and embracing innovative techniques in fermentation, the winery is making the best artisan wines in its history. As you sample three sub-appellation wines and gaze upon the hand-carved redwood tanks, a wine educator will explain how the winery is creating the perfect blend of tradition and innovation. Feel the Strong Family Values at Cline The family touch will be evident on your arrival to Cline Family Cellars. To be sustainable for future generations, Cline uses organic cover crops, compost teas, oyster shells and naturally mined sulfur to nourish the soil, and sheep to control the weeds. Solar panels provide 100% of the winery’s energy. On the patio of the 1850s farmhouse tasting room overlooking one of five spring-fed ponds, enjoy a flight of award-winning grape-to-bottle Sonoma wines. Reflect on the Day as You Return to San Francisco On the journey back to San Francisco (weather permitting), we’ll make a stop to photograph sweeping views of the Golden Gate Bridge and city skyline.

Great day and fit so much in. Loved Muir Woods. Just beautiful. Our guide Lana was wonderful and very knowledgeable…..and a safe driver in spite of all of the very windy roads. Appreciated the first stop at Golden Gate Bridge with great views and photo ops. The lunch is Sonoma was perfect and nice seeing the cute are where we ate. The wineries in Sonoma and Napa were both lovely. Napa winery only served reds and that was disappointing but did not take away from the experience.

Our Tour Guide Mitch was great, we had a blast! Would definitely recommend this tour. Doing Muir woods prior to wine country was a treat. Muir woods was very cool. We had lunch at Girl and the Fig in Somona Plaza for lunch and it was excellent. Cute restaurant with lots of charm and great food.

Excellent guide til the end. I believe our tour was til 7 but he seemed very concerned at the last wine tasting about leveling on time….I thought we’ll we have a long way home but we were home by 623. Would have liked to enjoyed the Napa winery a little longer. Overall good experience. January

If you've only got a day and you don't want to spend it in the city, this is a great day out. The Muir Wood Monument was very special, and the lunch and wine tasting were great. The tour guide, was very friendly and happy to help people enjoy their time. I'd highly recommend it.

Excellent tour with an excellent guide! J was amazing!
