Wine Country Half Day - From San Francisco
Busy days soaking up the sights and sounds of San Francisco will no doubt leave you craving some relaxing time with a glass (or bottle!) of the finest local wine.
Now you can do even better than that – you can actually see where that wine comes from and how it’s made with a tour of the world-famous California Wine Country!
This is San Francisco’s only half-day wine tour – perfect if you can’t spare a full day but don’t want to miss one of this region’s major highlights.
You’ll depart at midday and head north across the Golden Gate Bridge into the Carneros wine region in the town of Sonoma. Here you’ll visit some of California’s finest wineries, from individual boutiques to huge mass-producers.
This is a unique chance to observe the wine-making process and enjoy tastings as well as amazing views of the vineyards and picturesque Sonoma Countryside.
