The tour was incredible! The itinerary consisted of a foggy morning photo op at Golden Gate bridge followed by wine tastings at Domaine Carneros, Frogs Leap and Peju with lunch at Bottega in between. The essential part of this all being our “driver”, Simone. I use “driver” loosely considering the entire day it just felt like three friends on a wine tour. Read more

The Wineries You'll Visit
Crocker & Starr
The Crocker & Starr name reflects the unique partnership between Charlie and Pam and the key components that each one brings to the table – great grapes and great talent – to achieve great wine. In 1997 Charlie Crocker and Pam Starr established Crocker & Starr with a common goal of resurrecting the historic Crocker Vineyard Estate and creating world-class wines from its extraordinary terroir.
A true California sparkling wine pioneer, Chandon was founded in 1973 by Moët & Chandon. From the vineyards to the wine in the glass, Domaine Chandon marries the best of French tradition with new-world innovation. Every bottle of their sparkling wine expresses their French heritage and innovative American spirit.
The name Antica originates from the words Antinori and California and represents the Antinori family’s long-standing desire to craft exceptional estate wines that are a true expression of Napa Valley terroir. The Antinori family’s 26 generations of winemaking history are synonymous with the famed wine growing regions of Tuscany and Umbria.
Women Winemakers of Sonoma
We salute the women winemakers of Sonoma by dedicating a tour exclusively to them. This premium tour of the Sonoma Valley showcases three highly acclaimed women winemakers who have made a mark on the Sonoma horizon, in an industry traditionally dominated by men.
The Wineries You'll Visit
Ferrari-Carano Vineyards & Winery
Located in Dry Creek Valley, this estate winery was built in 1981 and focuses on producing Ferrari-Carano’s stellar white wines. Ferrari-Carano harvests their grapes at night when temperatures are the coolest, giving them crisp and intense fruit flavors.
The grapes for Montemaggiore wines come from their mountainside estate vineyards in Sonoma County near the small town of Healdsburg. Their location, climate and soils are the key to producing rich, elegant wines.
Former tech executives Greg and Nancy decided to “give it all up” to follow their passion and dream. They bought hillside property, planted vines and opened Kachina Vineyards. Their 100% green winery has the look and feel of old-world Tuscany under the Dry Creek Valley sun.

What a fantastic wine tour! It was my wife and I’s first wine tour and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Our driver Dillon Haas definitely brought the group together and added a whole other level of fun and entertainment to the tour. He was full of fun stories, facts about San Francisco, and unrelated topics that kept the group constantly laughing. Read more
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 on schedule. A great day, very relaxed but got to see lots. Thanks Erin and Ned! Read more
