Travel inspires us all. Imagining the world and nature that awaits beyond the four walls nourishes our mind in a unique way. If you’re nearby in Northern California, we want you to know that your outdoor oasis is never far away. Allow one of our personable Platypus Wine Tour hosts to guide you on a day of scenic epicurean adventure. What better way to take in the late summer hues and inspiring views than an intimate and authentic Sonoma wine tasting.
Let’s talk briefly about the elephant on the bus.
We want our guests to know that our trained tour hosts are implementing a number of measures to ensure a safe and relaxing day of discovery. In the interest and safety of all attendees we have tailored our usual offering to only accommodate private wine tours Napa of up to six guests.
We have gone to lengths to identify which of our local wineries and tasting rooms are offering the most creative outdoor experiences. We have discovered hidden gems, whose winery teams are digging extra deep to provide memorable and innovative wine tasting and learning experiences for guests.
What else is there to discover in Sonoma and Napa besides Wine Tasting?
A private wine tour to Napa or Sonoma provides the luxury of a lifetime. However, we have been extra thrilled to show guests some of the roads less traveled, uncovering wine country in a way that we never knew existed. From bakeries to breweries, we’ve curated a number experiences to break up your day.
Downtown Sonoma offers a different perspective of wine country to the bustle of Napa Valley. Brand new restaurant Valley Bar and Bottle offers a seasonal menu of California home-style cooking to guests in their quaint outdoor courtyard. Husband and wife sommeliers serve wine from some of the region’s best boutique producers. After dropping into the original William Sonoma store, stop by Sweet Pea Bake Shop to indulge in your favorite French pastries and handmade sweets. If you’re feeling festive and want to soak up more of the region’s vino, consider visiting famous Sebastiani Vineyards & Winery. Grab a bottle along with a picnic kit from “Girl and the Fig” and enjoy a slice of nature under the trees of Sonoma Square.
Similar to Sonoma Square, Healdsburg is home to a charming historic town, home to a Michelin star restaurant (Singlethread Restaurant, Farm & Inn) and award-winning wineries offering outdoor wine tastings. Healdsburg has everything whether you’re a meat lover (Journeyman Meat Co.), a fashionista or coffee connoisseur (Flying Goat). A stone’s throw from Healdsburg, our driver’s will take you to Dry Creek Valley, a lesser known winegrowing area crafting some of Sonoma Valley’s most divine wines (Unti Vineyards).
For the ultimate outdoor getaway, choose to visit one or some of Sonoma county’s hikes and trails. One of our favorites is Jack London State Historic Park in Glen Ellen. Visit this resting place and marvel in the historic ruins of novelist Jack London’s home. This season was graced with more mild summer weather than usual so even if you’re working up a sweat, pack a jacket and beat the breeze.
