With hundreds of wineries to choose from and different kinds of experiences, we orchestrate a wine tour that best meets your needs
We select wineries based on the input you share with us regarding the kinds of wines you like and the kinds of experiences that you are looking for. Please note that lunch and tasting fees are not included. We want to be flexible and feel free to accommodate any request for a particular winery or a place to eat. Tasting fees vary based on the caliber of the winery and the experience - they usually range between $25 and $40/person at quality wineries. Many wineries waive tasting fees if you buy wine that meets the minimum purchase.
From acclaimed wineries to off the beaten path vineyards, we offer unforgettable experience with Private or Small Group Wine Tours from 2 to 8 people. We conduct tours of the Napa Valley and Sonoma Wine Country for those staying in the metropolitan area of San Francisco. Our guests are collected from their doorsteps anywhere in the city of San Francisco, Berkeley, Downtown Oakland, Sausalito, Emeryville, El Cerrito, Mill Valley & Tiburon.
A standard tour starts 9:00 AM - 9:30 AM and takes in 3 to 4 wineries, getting back to San Francisco around 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM. Lunch is usually scheduled between the visits to the second and third wineries of the day. GREEN HILLS WINE TOURS has its list of wineries in the Sonoma and Napa Valley area, but guests are allowed to request a specific winery if there is one they would particularly like to visit or the tour can be tailored to the type of wines that guests on the outing prefer. Our aim is to create a wine tour experience that is fully customized for you. We want you to feel like you planned the trip yourself but with none of the hassle.
We begin our day in San Francisco, stopping at one or two attractions, such as the Palace of Fine Arts and the Golden Gate Bridge, and then ride gleefully out of the city towards Sonoma and Napa Valley, all the while drinking champagne and learning of the landmarks and history about the areas driven through. We try to strike a balance in letting our customers lead with their desired wineries and hoping that they will trust us to introduce them to some amazing wines and unique experiences.
