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.

    Great way to visit wine country Private Wine Drivers were great to work with and terrific hosts. We were driven by Charles “Cali” and he was an amazing guide. He knew a lot about the history of wine country and had a lot of good suggestions on wineries. We loved all our stops and he even gave us a lift at the end of the day to our dinner reservation. I highly recommend.

    Another fabulous wine country trip with Ryan This is the 9th year in a row we’ve visited wine country and had Ryan as our host and driver. 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!

    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!

    Awesome and personable Ryan drove myself and 10 rowdy girls around Glen Ellen on my birthday a few years ago. He brought me a bottle of his own wine that he made. He also drove a few coworkers and I around in Healdsburg. He is knowledgeable about the area and knows some of the wine club owners and workers. I recommend him anytime you are looking to have some fun and not worry about driving.

    Napa winery visit We used Ryan and his drivers for our recent visit to Napa for 3 couples. Cali was our driver for the two days we were in town. He was very professional, kept us on track with our scheduled winery appts and even was nice enough to run and grab some wine from a winery we didn’t have time to stop at on this visit while we were at tasting. We will for sure be using them again for our next visit. I actually just gave their info to another couple coming to town.

Cali is very knowledgeable about the history of Napa and gives a fascinating overview at the start of your day. He was an amazing tour guide and a very safe driver. This is the best way to explore wine country. Leave all the hassle of driving to the professionals and enjoy the view and sights with your friends.

We had 2 wineries we knew we wanted to visit (recommended by Fodor’s) and he confirmed those were great choices and selected two more for our day of winery hopping. All his choices were terrific! We will definitely be giving Ryan’s info to anyone we know visiting Sonoma or Napa! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I go to Napa a dozen times a year at least and have been going for years and I can easily say this was my best Napa experience to date! I wish we could recreate this trip every time we go to Napa. I would give them 10 stars if I could! All of the wineries were amazing, and wineries I had never been to before. It felt like a VIP experience from start to finish

    Difference in Good and Great We were in Sonoma with another couple to vacation and visit wineries. We hired Ryan and Private Wine to drive us around. Ryan was the difference in it being a good day and great day. He was incredibly knowledgable about the area, wineries, and wine making. In addition, Ryan is hilarious and had us laughing most of the time. The service he provided through out the day was excellent, was always prompt and kept us on schedule, but never felt rushed. I would highly recommend Ryan and Private Wine Drivers. We will definitely use them again.

    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.

Ryan is extremely personable and is one of the few Napa and Sonoma drivers who really knows the wineries and has a lot of connections. He is always efficient in booking appointments and getting you to the places that match your interests. He is happy to tuck a lunch in if you need it!

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!

After completing our trip touring beautiful wineries we wouldn’t had seen on our own and eating at some of the best food spots that Ryan recommended, this trip lived up to our expectations and more!! Ryan is fun, has a great personality and is very easy to talk to; he makes you feel right at home. If you come to Napa Vally, don’t just get any driver, GET RYAN!!

    Memorable Experience So much fun! If you are going to the Napa region, do yourself a favor and book with Ryan. A group of neighbors have been using Ryan the last four years. His knowledge and connections make this wine planning trip super easy.

    Annual Girls Trip Huge kudos to Ryan! We have been doing a college girls reunion trip for several years and he is the best - and only driver - we would ever use. Wine country is never the same trip twice - we rely on Ryan for accommodation, winery, meal, tour and tasting suggestions. He’s never let us down and our trips have been nothing short of spectacular. Cheers Ryan🍷

    Fantastic day! Ryan created the perfect itinerary, and knew just what we were looking for. He made sure everything was great and effortless. He is a great guy, and very knowledgeable Napa host.
    We will be back and only call him when we do. We highly recommend him!

    Wine country I have rode with Ryan and number of times now and he is an amazing driver. Very reliable and always timely. 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.

    Great choice for a special occasion Cali was our driver and he was great. He knew a lot about the Sonoma Valley and has been in the wine industry for years. We were on a trip celebrating our one-year wedding anniversary and it was really special. We went to Ledson, VJB for lunch, Arrowood and finished out the day at Repris which was amazing!! Having a driver who was also knowledgeable about the wine making process was really cool. We’ll be recommending private wine drivers to friends for sure!

    Driver Cali was awesome My party of 10 was picked up in a limousine bus by our driver Cali. He was nice, courteous and a very professional driver. The bus was spacious, clean and had a nice sound system. It was also stocked with cookies, rice crispy treats and fig newtons. He was nice enough to pick up our lunch order and a coffee order while we were tasting at a winery. Definitely give them a call if you're looking for transportation in the Napa and Sonoma area.

    Best driver ever!!! I have ridden with Ryan many times over several years, as has my husband, for business and pleasure purposes. I have had different friends come with me over the years as well and they would agree with my sentiments. Ryan is extremely personable and is one of the few Napa and Sonoma drivers who really knows the wineries and has a lot of connections. He is always efficient in booking appointments and getting you to the places that match your interests. He is happy to tuck a lunch in if you need it!

    Awesome driver Ryan was fantastic. Not only personable and friendly but he was on time and organized. He hand selected the best wineries and meticulously planned out our day. He also picked out the best place for lunch. We didn’t feel rushed at all. The appointments he made for us were perfectly spaced. We became wine club members of many wineries based on his selections and we got to go to wineries we would have never selected ourselves. Highly highly recommend.

Whether you know what you want or just want to explore. Tell them what you are looking for and they will hook you up. Don’t miss out! Private Wine Drivers is THE WAY to explore NAPA and Sonoma.

Cally and Ryan also went above and beyond hosting our large group of 10 women, even separating the group when some were ready for a change from wine to margaritas! Fantastic time.

    5 Year Anniversary we'll never forget Booking with Ryan was as smooth as the vino consumed during our trip. 5th year wedding anniversary. Ryan didn't disappoint. From the boutique wineries to the best in class chauffer (Chris) - we are never disappointed with Private Wine Drivers. This is our second time hiring Private Wine Drivers. The first was 6 years ago when Ryan set up what may go down as the best engagement ever. Engagement at Artesa followed by friends and family at Domaine Carneros. Pics speak for themselves. We love the our wine guy and can't wait to do it again.

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. He definitely went above and beyond and made our day so special. Can’t wait until we can make our next reservation with him.

He’s experienced, knowledgeable, and fun...3 characteristics I feel are necessary when trusting someone to lead you in your adventure through wine country. I learn something new every time, and look forward to the next experience.

    Thank you, Ryan!

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.

Both Ryan’s are great individuals and they add that extra plus to NAPA and Sonoma. They are a must for your next visit!!!!!

No need to plan your own trip, leave it to Cali. Every place he took us was fantastic and authentic! He even picked out our lunch spots. We are looking forward to another trip with Cali on our next visit to wine country.

As it turned out those became our favorites for the trip. You start out with a driver and end up with a friend that we still touch base with today. Looking forward to our next trip. We have referred him to others and they had the same awesome experience. THE BEST!

From planning to follow up, Ryan was super responsive and engaged in helping us plan a wonderful 3-day tour of Sonoma during the Wine Barrel Tasting weekend. It was the smartest and safest decision we could have made. He knows the area and wineries so well, and made some great recommendations. He took great care of us with much-needed waters and snacks, and ensured we had a great experience. He took extra care to ship our wine home for us following our trip. We would HIGHLY recommend Ryan!

He always has great ideas for itineraries and has offered up several hidden gem wineries that are among my favorites now. I have recommended Ryan to many friends and colleagues and all are equally impressed. The bonus is that he is very affordable and accommodating. They are simply the best!!!

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.

Our group of 3 couples had several parameters and many concerns visiting during the smoky conditions in September. Fortunately, the skies cleared and our views couldn’t have been better. The boutique wineries we visited were outstanding as was his organization, knowledge and professionalism.
