Your day in California Wine Country begins with a drive over the famous Golden Gate Bridge to reach Vista Point, where you will enjoy a light breakfast of croissants and mimosas overlooking scenic San Francisco Bay. You will then drive past lush, picturesque vineyards to reach the award-winning wineries of Northern California. At your first winery, you will become a winemaker for the day and take part in a blending seminar to find out which wine suits your palate. Once identified, you will bottle, label and seal your own 750ml bottle of wine to take away as a memento of the day! Then, enjoy a guided tasting of the winery's prized collection.

Your guide will then take you to a boutique winery which also features a collection of original paintings and labels, and you can partake in the visual delights. Here you'll sip a variety of wines, from Chardonnay to Cabernet Sauvignon to Merlot and beyond. You will then enjoy a stop in historic Sonoma Square while you revel in the breathtaking scenery.

You'll also have the opportunity to indulge in tastings of locally-produced olive oils, scrumptious cheese, and delectable chocolates. During your journey around Wine Country, your guide will point out sites that formed the backdrop of famous movies such as The Birds.

After a delicious lunch you will visit a high-end vineyard whose reputation is such that its wines frequently appear on the menu at White House functions. As well as sampling the award-winning wines and seeing these menus for yourself, you will tour the vineyard and learn about the viticulture of wine accompanied by a wine expert.

After you bid adieu to California's world-famous winemaking region, you will enjoy a premium glass of port or moscato on your journey back to San Francisco, where your driver will drop you off at your hotel or dining destination. The perfect way to immerse your senses is on this full-day premium experience in California's Wine Country!

We had a great time and Marsha was the perfect host for a fun filled day. Benzinger winery tour exceeded our expectations and the olive oil tasting did too... Thanks Again.
