Embark on delicious journey through Northern California's Wine Country as you visit 3 different estates and sample award-winning wines from renowned vintners. Learn about the vine-filled history of winemaking in the area and taste the legacy of Napa and Sonoma's most established grape growers.

Climb aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach and cruise over the Golden Gate Bridge as you head into fertile hills and valleys brimming with vineyards. Make your first stop of the day at Madonna Estate, where you can sip a refreshing pinot grigio and learn about the efforts of the Bartolucci family, who have been making wine here since 1922.

When the Trinchero family bought the Sutter Home Winery in 1948, they had a vision, a passion, and apparently, an insight into consumer tastes. In the early 1970s, Sutter Home started a trend when the company created White Zinfandel, introducing a new, sweeter flavor profile. They changed the way Americans enjoyed wine by offering them high-quality varietals at an affordable price. By the 1980s and 1990s, Sutter Home became a household name and the second largest independent family-run winery in the United States.

During a lunch break, we’ll make a stop at V. Marketplace in Yountville or Historic Downtown Sonoma Square where you will enjoy leisure time to explore. Both destinations affords a wonderful variety of eclectic dining options and one-of-a-kind boutique shops and local art galleries.

Next, we visit Andretti Winery – Nestled alongside a quiet country lane in the heart of the legendary Napa Valley, Andretti Winery exudes old world charm, whisking wine lovers back in time to a slower pace of life. Modeled after a rambling Italian village, the winery grounds conjure up the boyhood home of its namesake, Mario Andretti, the greatest race car driver of all time. Founded in 1996 by Mario Andretti and his longtime friend, Joe Antonini (former Chairman & CEO of Kmart), Andretti Winery is dedicated to celebrating the Italian lifestyle, complete with fine wines, inspirational scenery and gourmet food. Blessed with the premium grapes that grow in this acclaimed valley, Andretti Winery produces an array of wines that – like Mario Andretti himself – are second to none.

Optional Lunch Add-on: Save time on finding a restaurant during your lunch break; Add-on lunch to your tour. Dine at a local favorite! Enjoy items from a variety of Californian-inspired dishes raging from Sandwiches to Pasta.
