The description of this tour was misleading. It says that the group is limited to a small size, but there were 36 people on our tour. We also hit a lot of traffic on the one way there so our time at the first winery was cut very short, and we were only there for about an hour. The first winery felt very rushed but the second winery was very nice and made up for the first one. Next time I would recommend doing the full day tour so you can see more than 2 wineries since it’s an hour and a half drive from San Francisco.

More intimate engagement with lesser known wineries, both in the Sonoma area. We were only 4 at the first winery and had excellent explanations and answers to our question. There was a bona fide acquaintance with people and wine. The second winery visit was to a more upscale venue, but with an excellent wine-tasting pour person. The food stop in Sonoma town was a pleasant surprise for both history/tradition and food. We have spent much time working and visiting in the Yucatan, and found the Maya Cafe cuisine somewhat Americanized but true to Yucatan food offerings.

Fantastic experience with great guide (Mark)

Went on the 1/2 day sanoma tour with 4 friends. Our guide Mark made the day. He was a pro with a great knowledge of sf and wine and made for a very interesting and fun day. The 1/2 day was perfect. A full day would have been too much.
