Custom Napa & Sonoma Wine Tours
Our winery tours focus on the wine, food, education and stories about the regions, and of course, getting you there safely. We also don't forget the importance of the spectacular views, beautiful gardens, art collections, farm to table meals and great gift shops that add to your enjoyment and relaxation.
Tours are built around our client's interests and wine preferences, and they normally include several wineries with a nice lunch in the middle, for either one day, or several.
Many small wineries require appointments and timing the appointments is tricky so we prefer to schedule those to ensure that the day flows gracefully. Itineraries are often a mix of client favorites and our suggestions, based on our conversations, and more often, multiple emails. We don't accept any compensation from the wineries, restaurants or hotels, so our suggestions are based entirely on our client's interests and preferences. We will also happily provide lodging and restaurant suggestions.
Our fees for small groups only cover transportation because winery tasting fees vary widely and couples can sometimes share tastings. That can be a good strategy because, in the course of a day, tastings can turn into a lot of wine.
You can call us at 707-235-2648, or use the form below, to arrange a tour. Note: We are on Pacific Time. Amicis Tours is licensed by CA-PUC TCP-31301 and commercially insured. Beware, many 'drive your car' people are not properly insured, and the local drive share drivers are not drug tested. In an area that has twice the DUI rate of the rest of California, and is known for the quality of its cannabis... Just saying, it makes you wonder!
