What a great day this was! I highly recommend this trip. Remarkable, all fees except a tip and souvenirs are included. Started off a tad rocky as the van arrived a half-hour late at my hotel. But traffic happens, you know. Our garulous guide, Buddy, introduced me to the rest of the folks in the van from England, Brazil, Canada, Michigan and NY, which I appreciated as a solo traveler. We drove out of the city over the Golden Gate Bridge with informative narration and jokes from Buddy, and visited two wineries before lunch. Jacuzzi was way stuffier than Cline, by the way, and I enjoyed Cline's wine more - but the comparison was useful and the view from the back of Jacuzzi was gorgeous. Lunch was a in delightful restaurant off the center square of Sonoma. Be sure to visit Wine Country Chocolates for a yummy chocolate tasting while you are there. We drove after lunch to Napa for the peak of the trip, Domaine Chandon, where we had a tour with tastings along the way. A new bottle of champagne appeared around each corner. Simply delightful, and the gardens surrounding the winery were beautiful. Time for a little San Francisco-related music on the way back to the hotel and the day was done. Really enjoyable and well done. Thanks, Buddy!

An excellent day out. A very knowledgable guide and a comfortable coach. We were takentosee many sights not reahed by larger groups, and the wine tasting was really good and we learned a lot about wine making. Beautiful countryside.
