Green Dream Tours was a great way to spend the day. We couldn’t find Alcatraz tickets, so we booked this tour and it far exceeded our expectations. We had an amazing time on the tour. We loved Cline and ended up buying a case of wine. Our tour guide Dillion really made the entire trip. Read more

The Wineries You'll Visit
Please note that times and wineries are subject to change.
Cline Cellars resides on an impressive 350-acre ranch in the famed Carneros Valley. There are exotic birds, fish ponds, miniature horses and even a museum of the missions of California. Their stunning estate is not just easy on the eyes, it’s also 100% solar-powered and focuses on producing high-quality, Rhone-style and Zinfandel wines. Read more about Cline Cellars here.
Homewood Winery is a true down-home experience. It’s a quaint and friendly micro-winery nestled in the heart of the Carneros region, producing about 1000 cases each year. With luck, you’ll get to meet the owner, Dave, and hear about his passion for the vine and how he learned and grew within the industry from simple home winemaker to cellar proprietor to produce his beloved wines.
The Official Alcatraz Tour
No trip to San Francisco is complete without a fun and thrilling tour of the infamous Alcatraz Island! This is the official Alcatraz tour, which includes a boat ride to and from the island, a full audio tour available in 11 languages (of both the outside and inside of the prison) and of course stunning views of the island, San Francisco skyline and the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges.
Dillon (our guide) was not only cool and fun, he was educated, witty, had singing talents and a music playlist that anyone would love. He also was a walking encyclopedia of San Francisco history – bonus. Read more
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. Read more
