Come away with us to wine country on our Napa Valley Wine Tours
Wine is a passport to the world.
Napa Valley Wine Tours 2018
Come away with us to wine country on our Napa Valley Wine Tour Packages and be rewarded with exclusive access to elite, privately owned vineyards that are rarely open to the public. Wander through vines and barrels while learning all the facets of winemaking directly from some of the region’s most highly acclaimed vintners and viticulturalists, then enjoy a farm-to-table pairing before venturing out to enjoy this beautiful stretch of countryside from a non-wine perspective. Think cycling, kayaking, scenic kite flying, seal viewing, hot air ballooning, exploring the vibrant farmers’ markets and botanical gardens, or hiking through one of its many wilderness parks—there is so much more to do in wine country that you won’t want to miss. Including, one of the most sublime spa treatments you’ll ever experience—a Japanese cedar bath, the ultimate body detox—and plenty of gallery or links hoping to make your experience unforgettable.

Let us curate your Napa Valley wine tour with attention to every detail. From the *initial consultation * to your bon voyage send-off, nothing is off limits and nothing is left to chance unless of course, that is what you want.
Each Napa Wine Tour Package and experience highlights the very best, and hard to access, vineyards, experts and accommodations that Napa and Sonoma have to offer, as well as incredible dining opportunities. Imagine visiting a vineyard known for their sustainable growing and production processes, historic setting and innovative, James Bond technology— an underground tasting room located deep within the bowels of the Vaca Mountains, used exclusively for the wines crafted by both Melka and Gott. Or indulge in a once-in-a-lifetime experience, not typically open to the public, going behind the scenes to see what really goes into the production of wine. Join the harvesting team in one of the most crucial steps in the wine-making process.
And because we know that even the most avid wine enthusiasts need to give their palate a respite, we offer several other activities to both excite and soothe, pending your mood. Whether you are the adventurous type looking to fly away in a hot air balloon, or prefer to enjoy the water while kayaking with the seals followed by a scenic kite-flying or just relaxing at one of the country’s best spas with a treatment that can only be described as… well, we will keep that our little secret.
Our Napa Valley Wine Tour Packages have it all.
