NAPA & SONOMA TOUR SUGGESTIONS

Spark your imagination with these tour possibilities. We work with you to create the itinerary that you want. It’s your day!

NAPA BIG BOYS

The reputation of Napa Valley is world renowned because of the iconic wineries throughout the area. The big boys have established names world-wide with impeccable estates and wine making facilities. You will return home with a new appreciation for some of your favorite wines.  Visit iconic wineries such as:

NAPA HIDDEN GEMS

Napa Valley has over 200 wineries. Some of the best are the ones you’ve never heard of. The Hidden Gems of Napa Valley are challenging to uncover, but we have the entire valley covered. Let us set you up at family owned boutique wineries. You will definitely find a new favorite from our hidden gems.

NAPA FOOD PARINGS

Calling all foodies!! Napa Valley’s culinary passion rivals its passion for wine. With our great growing conditions for almost everything, farm to fork seems to be the trend. Some of the top chefs of Napa will prepare exquisite bites to pair with different wines for a flavor explosion. An experience your pallet will never forget.

SONOMA VALLEY SECRETS

Sonoma is where it all started. California was founded right on the quaint Sonoma Square in front of the San Francisco mission. Venture up the Sonoma Valley to the wineries with a variety of our local favorites. The variety of grapes grown in the valley expands beyond the typical French varietals with Italian and Spanish varietals as well. Fabulous family owned estates await your adventure, all offering an experience as unique as their wines.

SONOMA COAST

The Sonoma coast may be the most breathtaking area of California. From the inland valleys, wind down the vineyard lined road, and cross old bridges towering above the Russian River. This area is where some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir vineyards meet the coastal redwoods before continuing westward to the Pacific Ocean. The river meets the Pacific in the town of Jenner where a collection of wildlife awaits your camera including seals, pelicans, and blue herons.

SONOMA HEALDSBURG AREA

Healdsburg is the center of northern Sonoma County.  The charming square is covered with great restaurants, tasting rooms, and boutique shops.  From Healdsburg it is easy to access three valleys, each specializing in varietals specific to their terrior.  Russian River is known for award-winning Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.  The old vine Zinfandel and Sauvignon Blanc of the Dry Creek Valley are exquisite.  Alexander Valley is ideal for Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

COOL CAVES

In many parts of the country, caves are reserved for bats. In wine country, you’re more likely to find wine barrels in caves. Winemakers have long known that the pristine, protected conditions of these underground caverns offer an ideal cool and humid climate for the wine-aging process. Wine tasters, meanwhile, have discovered the other cool factors of caves – touring and sipping. Many local wineries open their caves to visitors offering sit down tastings or guided walks, and some invite you to taste straight from the barrel. Bats, however, aren’t invited to the party.

BUBBLES TOUR

One of the best sounds is the popping of a champagne bottle. California has some of the best sparkling wine producers in the world.  Both Napa and Sonoma counties cover all your bubbly desires.  From Brut to Rose to Sweet, they all offer quite a treat. Spend the day toasting with friends at a variety of sparkling wine producers.

BREWERY TOUR

Northern California is truly an oasis of breweries. Not only are the wineries here world renown…. but breweries have built quite a reputation for themselves as well. Some of the beers are enjoyed nationally, while others are local tap rooms.  Venture to multiple breweries to fulfill all your hop headed desires.

    Recommend 100% I visited Napa / Sonoma twice within the last few years, and both times Ryan was an absolutely fantastic guide. The first trip was with two girlfriends and the second trip was with my mom and sister. Both times Ryan was extremely responsive for planning, had great suggestions for itineraries based on our preferences, and really helped make the day relaxed and fun. Highly recommend for anyone traveling to Napa / Sonoma and look forward to reaching out again to Ryan for my next trip!

    Ryan is more than just a "driver"... Not only is Ryan so knowledgable about the wine country, he also has the best recommendations. My husband and I have used Ryan's service the last three trips out to Napa/Sonoma. We literally book him and make sure he is available before we even look for airfare. Ryan plans out the entire day, makes all reservations, and picks wineries based on our wine preferences. There's no stress to planning our trip... We just hop in the car and let him call the shots. We are 100% sure that seeing wine country with Ryan is the best way to go!

    Best Wine Tours/Drivers In Napa & Sonoma Ryan is the absolute best! He made each day easy and enjoyable in the car, and went way above and beyond to give us an incredible experience. We had a group of 6, and not only did Ryan teach us about the region, but he also has connections at many of the wineries we visited! He even helped us to ship back much of the wine we purchased, which was a huge help. He’s also a great photographer when it comes time for pics at the vineyards! Our trip would not have been the same without Ryan.

    Best Driving Service in Napa!! Ryan and his team are the best in the business to work with!! We have used this company for all our driving services, and they have also helped arrange winery visits for us. We normally rent a car to get from SFO airport to Napa so having a company that will drive you in your own rental was a piece of cake for us.

    We always have fun and feel safe when driving wiyh Ryan. I would recommend this driving service to anyone, and I already numerous times!

He’s so knowledgeable, fun and recommends great wineries that are off the beaten path. He knows so many people that work at the wineries and I know we get special treatment because of him. He even picks up Starbucks for us in the morning before our tastings. He even helps me with my fantasy football line up (serious!)

    The best Ryan with Private Wine Tours is the absolute best. We have referred him to MULTIPLE friends and groups and they ALL have received the best service. Whether it’s your first time in wine country or you’re well seasoned - you will always be surprised by the hospitality and rare vineyards/experiences they can set you up with. We come back multiple times to Napa and will use Ryan every single time for every trip. Truly an immeasurable tool to complete the perfect trip!

    AMAZING! We have been using Ryan for 4 years now. Not only is he a great driver, he is even better company, but he is now a major reason why we love our annual trip to wine country. His knowledge, connects and photography skills go beyond just a driver. Having a Ryan is a great perk and worth every penny. We have recommend him to everyone because he is so valuable to your travel experience. You cannot go wrong by selecting Private Wine Drivers to take your trip to the next level.

    Amazing experience with Ryan Ryan has been our driver for our annual Alpha Phi and friends wine trip for over 7 years. He’s super fun, makes fantastic winery recommendations and knows his way around Sonoma and Napa Valley better than anyone.

    Above all, he’s a saint. Imagine having to drive 7 40-something sorority sisters around in a Chevy Tahoe to tons of wineries for 3 full days. He keeps us on pace with our packed schedule, helps with appointments and maintains a great sense of humor.

    Cheers to Ryan and amazing times in wine country!

His background knowledge, personal connections and insight, as well as a commitment to first class service; all of these made our time with Ryan truly memorable. I can’t recommend his services enough. For anyone who wants to entrust their special time to a true professional, Ryan is the best choice in every way.

He is accommodating and he anticipates what you’ll need and want to see along the way. His dining recommendations are as good as his vineyard recommendations.
