For more information about Let’s Roll Wine Tours & Designated Drivers
We drive either your rental car or your personal car. The insurance is designated driver insurance and covers the drivers who drive rentals or your personal car. If it’s your personal car please make sure it’s clean, inside and out. We are Let’s Roll Wine Tours and want to make a good impression so please clean your car. I could tell you a few unpleasant experiences where I, Deborah, have drive some pretty dirty and trashed out cars.
Please fill out the Service Request box on the Contact Us page of the website and include the dates you will want to tour. We will check our calendar to check availability and call you (within 24 hrs, usually less) to connect. When we connect over the phone and you’re ready to finalize your tour we ask for a credit card to hold the date.
This is up to you. You supply the vehicle and we drive your car. We have commercial licenses to drive up to a 15-passenger van.

Yes, we can help with your itinerary and give you suggestions, if you’d like. Some have their entire day planned out and email it to us in advance. This is very helpful. There are wineries by appt only and many where you can walk in. Eight or more guests will need an appt at most wineries.
We meet you at your home or hotel and this is where we begin the wine tour. Your designated driver leave our own vehicle where we pick you up and this will be the place we drop you off. If you’re further than 50 miles we charge an extra hour for travel expenses.
Most wineries open at 10 am. Closing is usually from 4-6pm and most at 5 pm. Visiting 4 wineries is typical for a 6-hour day. Sometimes it can be 3 depending on how long you’d like to visit one winery.
We can give you several suggestions depending on where we are touring. Sometimes clients bring snacks and sandwiches for picnicking. There are wonderful restaurants to choose from too. We can call in orders to deli’s and PU while you’re wine tasting. If you choose the Pinot or Cab package a box lunch is offered. Napa has ordinances about picnicking but there are a few places to still picnic. Sonoma is more open to picnicking.
Each winery charges a wine tasting fee these days and the fees vary from winery to winery. The fees vary from $25 to $45 per guest and there are anywhere from 4 – 6 pours.
