San Francisco Pickups
A $175 one time charge is added for a day that starts and ends in San Francisco. An enjoyable alternative (especially during mid-week) is to take the San Francisco Bay Ferry (about an hour) from either the S.F. Ferry Bldng or Pier 41 to the Vallejo Ferry Port, where I can pick you up and drop you off at no extra charge! Their schedule can be found HERE
Frequently Asked Questions
What are the typical tasting fees?
Most wineries charge fees from $10 and up per person and will typically waive the fee if you purchase a minimum amount, or if you sign up for their wine club. Considering the tasting costs per person, this can add up (you can always share a tasting)
Does where we are staying make a difference when booking a tour?
There are routes to better organize the timing of your tour based on where you are staying, whether you are in South, Mid or North Valley, as well as Sonoma.
Can we fit in a lunch?
That is entirely up to the client and we will accommodate as needed. However, we will recommend getting a hearty meal in the morning and plan on the rest of the day touring/tasting. Pincicking at a winery is always an option as well as all our great restaurants in the area!
How many wineries should we visit in one full day of tasting?
No more than three to four wineries and a lunch for 6 hours is optimal, depending on the winery experience. A lot of visitors try too hard to visit too many wineries only to feel burned out and rushed without fully enjoying their experience. (and sometimes not feeling so well)
What are some essentials to bring for the day/night?
My services will provide water during your experience. I do recommend bringing a jacket/sweater along for times when you might be in a cave or cellar tasting as these areas can be quite cool even in mid-summer.
