Relax and Revel in Beautiful Scenery on These Wine Tours from San Francisco
Experience Countryside Charms
Wine lovers often have a visit to Napa or Sonoma Valley at the top of their bucket list. With over 400 wineries to choose from, you won’t find a better or more famous region for wineries and wine tastings outside Tuscany.
As a top activity in the San Francisco Bay Area, many visitors choose to stay in San Francisco and book a wine tour from San Francisco to either Sonoma Valley or Napa Valley. But trips to wine country can take over an hour, not to mention the logistics of getting there, drinking and then finding your way back to the city.
As a result, many tour companies and limo operators offer Napa Valley limo wine tours from San Francisco, which let you relax and simply go along for the ride. Many of these companies give you the option of either a private, customized San Francisco limo wine tour or a “join in” style wine tour that’s shared with others.
Wine tours typically include two to five different wineries, sometimes with additional options like lunch, tastings and other extras included. And in addition to stretch limo wine tours, some companies offer limo party buses, private cars and even vintage VW buses.
No matter what type of experience you’re looking for, you can’t go wrong with these San Francisco wine tours to Sonoma and Napa Valley.
