A delightful tour with a knowledgeable guide in a 13-passenger van. Robin was excellent. Tour was informative and conducted at a comfortable pace. The wineries were generous in their tasting offerings, both in quality and in quantity. The smaller vehicle certainly enhanced the experience as we were able to get acquainted with our travel mates. All in all, a fun and memorable day.

The Wineries You'll Visit
Please note that times and wineries are subject to change.
Robledo Family Winery
The Robledo Winery showcases a heartwarming story of hard work and strong family ties. Reynaldo Robledo made history by becoming the first Mexican vineyard worker to open a winery and tasting room in the United States. Today, the winery remains very much a family business producing some of the best wines in Sonoma. Enjoy tasting a selection of their popular wines while seated around the large oak table imported from Reynaldo’s home state of Michoacan. Read more about the Robledo winery here.
Larson Family Winery
The Larson family has been making award-winning wines for over thirty years. Located in the heart of the Carneros region, the winery was once home to the largest rodeo in Northern California and the training grounds of Seabiscuit, the famous racehorse! Take in all the fascinating rodeo memorabilia in their barn become tasting room, and enjoy the family atmosphere throughout the property that includes their 3 friendly labs, patio games, pets goats and stunning vineyard views. Read more about Larson’s winery here.
Nicholson Ranch is a small, family-owned winery producing award-winning estate wine — meaning it’s all grown, produced and bottled right there on the ranch. Enjoy a tasting experience with a difference as you stroll out to the vineyards, glass in hand and hear first-hand about the winemaking process from vine to bottle while drinking in the fantastic Sonoma views that surround you. Read more about Nicholson Ranch.
Read What Our Guests Love About Us!
Erin was excellent in setting up a perfectly laid out plan for three winery tastings and an hour lunch at the very cool Oakville Grocery. Ned drove and kept us in schedule. A great day, very relaxed but got to see lots. Thanks Erin and Ned!
This was a thoroughly entertaining tour of wine country. Whether you’re a tourist or a local, put Green Dream Tours on your radar.
We got to visit a few of Sonoma Valley’s lesser known/off-the-beaten path wineries (eg Robledo and Larson Family Winery and Nicholson). The deluxe shuttle picked me up on-time in Mill Valley and in less than 30 minutes we arrived at our first destination. Our guide Dylan was a delight – full of energy, local knowledge, and made sure our bus had a rockin’ soundtrack and plenty of bottled water (a boy’s gotta keep hydrated!). Of the three wineries we visited, I would say that Larson was my favorite. The property has a unique history (the world’s most famous horse, Seabiscuit, used to train here before they converted this into a winery). In addition to boasting delicious wines, Larson is also very dog-friendly and family-friendly. They have a bocce ball court and several games that folks can play while sipping. Be warned: this place gets quite busy on weekends (I’d recommend visiting Larson during the week, if possible).
In between tastings, we got to nibble on a delicious lunch courtesy Basque Cafe. Our boxed meal included a turkey sandwich, fruit salad, and one of the chewiest chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had! After visiting the second winery, we made a stop in Sonoma Square. We were given an hour to stroll through the shops and eateries of this charming town. You definitely should pay a visit to the Cheese Shop. And if you’re a pet owner, you need to swing by Three Dog Bakery. The owner couldn’t be more lovely, and they have a vast selection of doggy treats and toys.
The whole tour from pick-up to drop-off lasted 7 hours. They took care of everything (transportation, wine tasting fees, and lunch). If you’re looking to spend a memorable day in wine country, give the Green Dream team a holler.
