Napa Valley has some of the best wineries to visit in the country! This was our second year in a row visiting the region with Napa Valley Wine Country tour and it was more than amazing. Honestly, it is the best winery tour that we have ever been to. That’s why we keep coming back!!

What is Napa Valley Wine Country Tour?
As we said above, this is our second year using Napa Valley Wine Country Tour. We went in 2017 with family, but this year we took our closet friends to the region for a bachelorette trip! Napa Valley Wine Country Tour offers wine tours of Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, Russian River Valley, Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and more. Their most popular tour, and the tour we like the most, are their join-in daily wine tours from Napa and San Francisco.
The specific tour we took was called San Francisco to Wine Country Tour. This tour included a photo op at the Golden Gate Bridge, mimosas (to get the party started), four wine tastings at four different wineries and a picnic lunch. The tour begins at 8:20 am and ends at 5pm. Yes, you read that right. The wine tour is 8.5 hours long!
One of the things we loved about the tour was the transportation. To travel from San Francisco to Napa we took a luxurious party bus! A party bus gave a level of excitement and fun to our tour. We played music and danced our shoes off. Our group and other participants who registered sat together on the bus and had the time of our lives.
What would the itinerary look like?
The San Francisco to Wine Country Tour started at Golden Gate Bridge for a Photo op. From there our fantastic tour guide, Abe, took us to Napa and Sonoma for the ultimate wine tasting extravaganza. We visited 4 wineries in total. Each winery offered something different and truly represented the taste of Napa and Sonoma Valley.
