Private Wine Tours
We're Ralph & Lahni de Amicis and we personally drive our private, custom designed tours of the Napa & Sonoma Wine Country in our SUVs for up to six (6) guests. We'd love to share the friendliest wineries with you, both on and off the beaten path, with their gorgeous views, picnic areas and of course, great wines.
We have no standard tours, each is unique and built around our guests where we put multiple wineries together into an enjoyable day choosing based on your wine preferences and interests. There are many reasons for visiting wine country besides the wine: Spectacular views, beautiful gardens, art collections and great gift shops all add to your wine country experience.
Many large wineries do not require appointments unless your group is six or more. But the boutique wineries often require them and we are happy to make any necessary appointments so the day flows perfectly.
We arrange tours for groups up to 50 guests. Click the Groups tab for more info. We also provide lodging and restaurant suggestions so call us and we will help you create a wine tour you will always remember! Lahni 707-235-2648
There are many reasons to visit wine country so when you book your tour please tell us what you are interested in so we can build your tour around you and your group. While we often tour with last minute clients many book their trips well in advance and fine tune the itineraries via emails and phone calls.
We drive up to six people in our SUVs. We are licensed by the California PUC TCP-31301 and commercially insured. Our contract and policies are listed below,
Our Rates: The standard vehicle rate for our Lincoln Navigator is $85 per hour for up to 6 people. We add a flat rate fuel surcharge of either $30 or $50 for the day depending upon point of origin. Gratuities are always at your discretion.
We are sorry but we do not pickup in San Francisco but if you would like to enjoy a scenic and leisurely ferry excursion to Vallejo or Larkspur, we will be happy to pick you up and drop you off there. If not, we are happy to refer you to a colleague who is based in San Francisco for your wine tour.
Minimums: We have a 5 hour minimum on weekdays MON-THU, and 6 hours on weekends FRI, SAT, SUN. Tours that originate outside of wine country (Vallejo, Larkspur, Sausalito, Windsor, Healdsburg, Marin County, etc) always have a 6 hour minimum due to extra drive times. The higher fuel charge also applies.

The Book: Napa & Sonoma
A Love Affair in Maps
Why do we know this area so well?We specialize in wine tours, choosing from 1000+ wineries, including both the famous labels and the small, off the beaten path vineyards. Most limo companies visit the same 5-10 places because it's easy.
We also write tour Books (we include one as a gift), and since 2012 we have been producing and hosting a 'behind the scenes', TV Show called Wine Country @ Work that airs on about 100 station nationwide. You can find the other shows we produce at www.SpaceAndTime.com.
We drive the tours ourselves because we enjoy introducing Wine Country to our guests, but, there are just two of us so we have a limited number of appointments available, so please contact us right away to see if we have your dates available.
