Top Sonoma Valley Wineries

With well over 400 hundred wineries located in the North Bay, and 40 in the Sonoma Valley, we hand-pick some of the best for our wine tours to avoid the crowds and find the more intimate side, and the real charm, of our beautiful wine country. We focus on smaller, family-owned wineries and wineries of historical significance while trying to avoid larger, more heavily visited wineries in order to provide a truly memorable experience. We're thrilled that Trip Advisor consistently ranks our Napa Wine Tours and Sonoma Wine Tours as top-rated activities in the region.
