We’ll take you off the main highway, traveling down pothole-filled roads to meet some longtime locals who’ve been quietly growing grapes and making wine for generations.
These rustically picturesque areas offer smaller, unpretentious tasting rooms that showcase excellent wines as well as delicious farm-to-table grub amid spectacular scenery of eucalyptus groves and rolling hills. And many of these family operations are ground-zero for sustainable winemaking practices, ensuring that our wine country stays green in every sense of the word.
$95 per hour per seven-person vehicle with accompanying guide. We recommend 6 hours for this experience, with a 4-hour minimum required.
Each experience is equipped with a “Boho Rig” – a vintage Land Rover Defender all-terrain SUV. Not only do we appreciate the coolness factor of these sturdy SUVs, but we love that Land Rover is a company with a social conscience.
We’ll arrange to pick you up and drop you off from wherever you’re staying locally. Pick-ups and drop-offs from outside of our targeted area can be arranged in advance for an additional fee.
A private guide – local and wine-educated – will accompany your day visiting off-the-beaten path wineries in Sonoma Valley with a stop for lunch.
Nice to meet you: Your Hay Bales, Hand-Shake Deals, and Pickup Trucks experience will begin with a complimentary fruit basket to put you in the mood for some sustainable agriculture.
A little something to tide you over: In the unlikely event that your energy begins to flag between tastings, we’ve got you covered with car snacks such as artisanal chocolate, granola bars, and beverages.
Tasting reservations will be secured by us in advance. Average tasting fees for these private wineries range from $20 to $40 per person and may be waived with the purchase of wine.
We will pre-order picnic or box lunch provisions. Various options are available and costs range based on selection, which we can discuss with you at the time of your booking.
We’ll make all reservations for you in advance. For certain venues, we may require a credit card prior to any bookings made on your behalf. Tasting fees, meal costs, and applicable taxes are not included in the excursion fees.
