Antonio was our driver and amazing host!!! He made our experience wonderful. On our way to Sonoma we had a bit of extra time so we stopped at the end of the Golden Gate Bridge. He was so kind and informative throughout the entire trip. The tour was amazing! The first winery was our favorite and we ended up ordering wine from there. All of the staff was super friendly and you definitely get your moneys worth doing this tour.

It was a nice first time experience. Beautiful landscape despite the cold and showers. It was so beautifully green. Even if I had children with me the kids had their fair share of charcuterie board. I must go back during harvesting season.
