How it works

We’ll kick things off in the wine country with a visit to a boutique, family-owned winery. The winemakers will proudly describe how they have combined their natural farming methods with traditional wine-making techniques in their wine country appellation.

By late morning, the group will appreciate the passion that winemakers bring to making their estate-bottled wines the finest, award-winning products that fertile soil and Mother Nature allows. Your camera will capture the unforgettable sights, sounds, and tastes from one of the world’s finest wine-producing regions.

For our lunch break, the tour makes a stop at historic Downtown Sonoma Square which offers a wonderful variety of delightful dining options. After lunch, the group will have time to unwind as it investigates one-of-a-kind art galleries, gourmet food shops, and historical landmarks.

After lunch, we make the climb to a slightly higher and cooler micro-climate where you will learn to appreciate what a difference a few miles make in this diverse grape-growing region. Popular White Zinfandels thrive here. You will enjoy their sweeter, smoother profile and understand how they burst onto the California Wine Country scene a few decades ago.

We will finish the private Napa and Sonoma Wine Country tour on a high note. That's when we visit a winery that exudes Napa Valley charm. The winery is dedicated to celebrating the history of the place and inspirational scenery. The group will relax on a sunny porch overlooking the vineyard.

After finishing up at our third winery, your San Francisco Wine Country Tour will begin our return through golden hills to your group’s San Francisco Bay Area pickup location. But don’t relax too much! A panoramic view of the City by the Bay awaits you (but varies based on pickup location).

Born in San Francisco. Only in San Francisco.

20 years ago, we started as a small company that loved showing off Yosemite Valley, Muir Woods, and the wine country just a short drive away. From behind the wheel of a single van in 2002, we would ask hotel and hostel guests, “Who wants to go explore?”

One 5-star tour at a time, Extranomical Tours built a respectable reputation as the best small tour operator in San Francisco. Today, we are bigger but Extranomical’s “travelling with friends” vibe is still flourishing.
