A world-class wine region in its own right, the Sonoma Valley is intimate, charming, and historic. The town of Sonoma is the home of the northernmost and last built of the California Missions. Some of the oldest wineries in the west are located here.
This tour is a serendipitous exploration of the lush, rolling hills of the Sonoma wine country region. The focus will be on smaller, family-owned wineries and there is the possibility to incorporate behind the scenes elements, such as wine caves, barrel rooms, meeting winemakers and spending time in the production areas, as well as wandering the winery grounds and vineyards.
Your guide is friendly and engaging, and will share stories and various anecdotes about the history and culture of this fascinating region.
