We meet you at your home or hotel and this is where we begin the wine tour. Where we pick you up is where we drop you off unless you want us to drop you off for dinner and Uber back. 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.
