Full description
Start your day in the afternoon, as you head north to the Golden Gate Bridge. Enjoy a scenic drive over the Golden Gate Bridge and marvel at the San Francisco skyline in the distance. Next, drive through the beautiful town of Sausalito, a seaside Mediterranean-like village harbored across the San Francisco Bay and famous for its sweeping views.

As the vine-covered hillsides come into view, you will visit 2 favorite wineries of the region for wine tastings and an exclusive estate tour. Experience the inner workings of the wineries and their family history in Napa and Sonoma Valley as an expert wine host walks you through the fermentation process, barrel-aging, bottling, and, of course, tastings of some award-winning varietals.

At each winery, enjoy up to 3-5 tastings of their signature blends. Your day concludes with a scenic drive back over the Golden Gate Bridge and into San Francisco as the sun slowly starts to set into the Pacific Ocean.

It was beautiful weather but unfortunately we were just inside, also the time at the 2 winery’s was limited, just one hour! it would have been great if we would have more time to enjoy it more. also there was not even a little snack, nothing together with the wine, no nuts, chips, crackers,.. nothing! for a whole afternoon that starts at 12pm... we were starving at the end!

The first place to share was straight to the tasting without explaining almost nothing and then shared the price list. In the second place of cellars, there was a place to explain the process but we saw absolutely nothing in the wineries visited. When returning another unit had problems and ours that was delayed had to wait for the transfer of passengers and then continue traveling.
