We will start the trip with a crossing of the famous Golden Gate Bridge. Even in the fog, the views from this San Francisco icon over Alcatraz Island, Fort Mason, Angel Island, and Tiburon will take your breath away.
The passionate wine guide accompanying the tour will add expert information and an unparalleled passion for California wineries. When it’s time to leave, sit back and relax as we embark on a 1-hour journey through the golden hills to the California wine country.
We’ll kick off the wine country with a visit to a family-run winery. Winemakers will proudly describe how they combine their traditional winemaking techniques with a blend of sunshine and fresh San Pablo Bay air so the grapes become plump and the wine ripens to perfection.
Once you have tasted this fabulous region, we will move on to a higher and cooler microclimate where you will learn to appreciate the difference a few miles can make. In a wine estate, capture the unforgettable sights, sounds and tastes of one of the best wine regions in the world.
After finishing at our second winery, your tour of the California wine country will begin its journey back to San Francisco. A panoramic view of the City by the Bay awaits you. End this incredible day with a second crossing of the Golden Gate Bridge on the way back to San
