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.

    Perfect Curated Experience (with a BABY!) We had a perfect trip with Cali. It was our FIRST trip with our baby -- so we definitely didn't want to be driving around or dealing with the stress of making reservations. He arranged for a two day experience -- one in Napa and one in Healdsburg.

    He picked great locations based on our preferences, and made sure that they were ok with us bringing the baby along with us.

    He made us feel safe -- which was critical as new parents.

He is also very knowledgeable in the different areas of California wine country. He has helped me multiple times plan and schedule different winery visits depending on the area I wanted to stay in. I will definitely be riding with Ryan in the future.

    Napa with friends! Cali was a great escort along the way. Not only did he drive us to each destination on the itinerary (not having to navigate or be concerned about consumption is so worth it), he shared some great background information about Napa and the wineries specifically if we asked as he is very knowledgeable. He also blended in and slipped away (as appropriate) from our group of 6 ladies very comfortably. I would absolutely recommend the service. Well worth it!!

We had a loose itinerary and he helped us make appointments as we went. All the recommendations were spot on and we were greeted very well at each winery, all thanks to Ryan. I felt very comfortable having him drive my personal car and he’s an easy guy to hang around. Very much recommend.

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!) Couldn’t ask for anyone better to help make sure you have a stress-free, amazing trip!

    Wonderful experience! Ryan was terrific and helped make our trip to Sonoma wonderful. He was friendly but not intrusive. We really appreciated his knowledge of the area and suggestions for places to visit. He ensured our days were full of great tastings and experiences without feeling rushed. Every place he suggested treated us very well and had the attributes we were looking for (e.g., type of wine, setting, scenery, tasting options, ambiance...). Thanks for an amazing time.

    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!

Such an amazing experience with him as our driver... he has great relationships throughout Sonoma/Napa that made for top notch tastings. We loved all of the extra touches he put into our day that contributed to a day we won't forget!!! Highly recommend for anyone who wants to have a fun and knowledgeable experience through the Valley.

Ryan helped prior to our arrival to arrange private sittings with various vineyards/wineries. Once we arrived, our driver, Cali, took care of the rest!
    I would highly recommend Cali and Ryan. We cannot wait to come back and do it again!

    Look No Further! Ryan’s the Best! We decided to come to The Russian River Area and I found Private Wine Drivers on Trip Advisor. Ryan responded very quickly and efficiently put together three fabulous days. Ryan’s not just a driver, but a terrific guide with a charming personality and was one step ahead of us all the way. All of our visits were private and “social distancing”
    was enforced in a perfect way. We felt taken care of and at ease. Ryan knows all the good “special places” with tremendous views and great architecture. Look no further, Ryan’s the best!

As another bonus, he happened to take photos of us that were my favorite of the entire day! Book him.

    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!

He made sure everything all day was perfect including setting us up with a lunch reservation in case we needed it, a coffee run, and set us up at some amazing wineries.
