According to legend, great Greek playwright Euripides said, “There really is no love where there is no wine.” In America’s own ‘wine region,’ Meadows,’ we absolutely agree.
A Napa Valley wine tour has something for everyone, whether you’re a full-fledged oenophile, a first-time visitor, or simply someone looking for an excuse to drink in the middle of the day; add the term “Fancy,” and you’ve got yourself a match made in vino heaven. A luxury wine tour is recommended because someone else has already done the research and has a tried-and-true method for having the best wine-tasting experience imaginable.
Santa Rosa limousines services has extensive service knowledge of Napa wineries and vineyards, capturing the hearts of people seeking the VIP experience that only Napa Wine Tours and Sonoma Wine Tasting Tours can deliver.
So, “What are the benefits of Napa Valley bespoke and personalized tour packages for visitors to Napa Valley??”
When Napa Valley trounced France in both the cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay categories at the Paris Judgment in 1976, it was officially recognized as the go-to location for wine connoisseurs.
The Ultimate Napa Valley Wine Tour
Of course, Napa Valley and Sonoma were already well-established wine regions, with a number of award-winning vineyards. So doing wine excursions in Napa Valley makes sense. This is what to expect on a Napa Valley wine tour, in case you were curious (with high-end chauffeured transportation).
11:00 a.m.: Arrival at Silverado Resort and Spa
At Silverado Resort & Spa, the journey starts. This high-end hotel is located approximately an hour north of San Francisco, in the centre of the world-famous Napa Valley, which is home to over 400 wineries. The resort is a great place to start your Napa Valley wine tour since it pampers and relaxes you with massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures to ensure you look your best.
The Silverado Resort and Spa also includes two PGA championship golf courses, 13 lit tennis courts, and bicycle and hiking pathways, in case you were curious. The wine excursions, with 400 to choose from, are the main attraction, with thrills and excitement around every corner.
Don’t be surprised if a BMW 7 Series, a full-size luxury sedan with air conditioning, tinted windows, and a professional chauffeur/tour guide, pulls up in the driveway to take you on your tour. Santa Rosa limousines services operates and manages country’s largest and most comprehensive fleet of luxury vehicles, so don’t be surprised if a BMW 7 Series, a full-size luxury sedan with air conditioning, tinted windows, and a professional chauffeur/tour guide.
Hall St. Helena – Art of Cab Experience, 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The Art of Cabernet Tasting, a cutting-edge winemaking facility and hospitality hub, kicks off each Santa Rosa limousines services with a bang. This winery, nestled away at the foot of the Mayacama Mountains, has clearly been designed to attract visitors. Two Hall wineries and tasting rooms are part of the complex, one in St. Helena and the other in Rutherford Hills on the valley floor. Customers may enjoy a really intimate wine tasting experience because all tastings are private. Hall’s highly rated wines are only a taste of what’s to come for those on the tour, and at $40.00 for a 60-minute experience, it’s a great value for first-timers and wine connoisseurs alike.
Peju Winery: 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
The next stop is the Peju Province Winery, which produces superb wines from its organically grown estate vineyard. This is a wonderful option for those who want to enjoy traditional Bordeaux varietals in a beautiful outdoor setting without staying socially distant. Peju Winery features beautiful views and an excellent wine variety, but it is not pet-friendly (so pet lovers, look elsewhere!).
This wine tasting experience, which includes some of the most classic wines as well as excellent service, costs $45.00 per person (45-minute session) and includes lunch starters. What could you possibly want more than that?
Turnbull Winery: 02:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. $40.00 pp (60-minute experience)
Another must-see is Turnbull Wine Cellars, which has been offering visitors with a true Napa Valley wine tasting experience for over 40 years. Turnbull boasts beautiful gardens and excellent wines (especially red varietals) that may be enjoyed in a relaxing and comfortable outdoor environment. This stunning vineyard, famed for producing some of the best cabs, will undoubtedly make your top 10 Napa Valley wineries list, and you’ll most certainly leave with a couple bottles of 2020 Josephine Sauvignon Blanc after the tasting. On your Napa Valley wine tour, be sure to stop by this gorgeous and stunning vineyard.
04:00 p.m.: Return to Silverado Resort
Like a glass of Château Lafite Rothschild (regardless of who’s pouring it), all wonderful things must come to an end. The Napa Valley Private & Customized Tours, as well as high-end chauffeured transportation, will surely be an experience you’ll remember long after you’ve finished that bottle of 2020 Josephine Sauvignon Blanc. Overall, the wine tasting tour will be a remarkable experience, not only because you will visit some of Napa Valley’s best vineyards, but also because you will be escorted by an excellent guide/chauffeur.
Wine and Limo has many luxury vehicles that can accommodate private wine tasting tours as well as large group events. 750LI Black BMW Sedans, Corporate Suburbans, Limousines, Limousine Vans, Luxury Minibuses, and stunning full-size Motor Coaches with restrooms are among the most popular. The highlight of the Napa Valley wine tour has to be the courteous, experienced, and talented driver who was assigned as a tour coordinator and organized the entire tour.
Some Extra Hidden Gems of Napa Valley
Linda Falls offers a return to nature that is less well-known than other famous hiking paths nearby for those looking to get away from Napa Valley’s well-known expensive restaurants and wineries. Linda Falls is the lone local waterfall near the community of Angwin, near Howell Mountain, making it a one-of-a-kind attraction amid the Valley’s many natural wonders.
The hidden waterfall pours over volcanic pebbles and is surrounded by lush trees, effectively concealing it from inexperienced hikers who stick to the more popular pathways.
Linda Falls is a short hike that is easily accessible to those who know where to look, and visitors will be able to experience a different, wilder side of the often polished Napa Valley that can be seen in so many travel booklets because it is owned by a land trust that has vowed to protect it.
Turtle Rock Bar and Café
Residents claim that Turtle Rock Bar & Cafe, a half-bar, half-general store on the side of a rural road, has the best egg rolls in the world. The little-known place is popular with bikers, and the thousands of dollar bills hanging from the ceiling give it a unique flavor not found in other, finer cafes in Napa’s busier regions.
The Cafe’s massive egg rolls have been known to sell over a thousand in a single weekend! One of the few places to dine along the journey to the well-known Lake Berryessa is at this spot. For visitors who want to eat like a native, the Turtle Rock Bar and Cafe is a fantastic option.
Even though the Silverado Trail is only 35 miles long, it is jam-packed with spectacular views and some of the area’s best winemakers, many of which sell small-batch wines that aren’t available in stores. The Napa Valley is known for its world-class wineries, but the Silverado Trail, which is calmer and less visited, is surrounded by wineries that provide unique wines to travelers who want to stray from the main path and make their own roadside stops.
It is positioned on the valley’s eastern slopes, visitors can take a vehicle journey or rent a bike to take in and observe the beautiful surroundings at a much slower pace. Despite the road’s short length of 35 miles, there are numerous restaurants, vineyards, and resorts to visit.
