Where’s lunch with wine in Sonoma?
KAREN_R
, May 2022
Trip was just Ok… driver made decisions without asking us… olive oil and 2 wine tastings so we never got to lunch at lively Sonoma center but rather had a sandwich to go from a mediocre deli at 4 PM…wish were asked … tasting 4 of 5 wines at 2 rooms with no food didn’t work for us… choice of vineyards was good, not huge commercial but small vineyards with nice selections… bottom line is second vineyard was supposed to be optional if we had time or wanted to… that option was not given to us. 😩

Great Experience

I did the wine tour with a few old friends and we had a great time! Our guide Ulrich was so knowledgeable about the area and taught us some really helpful tricks for wine drinking. (I will never sip wine the same way again!) He took us to two small wineries that made me feel like we’d found some real hidden gems. Overall it was a great experience!

The tour wasn't bad, especially the first site and the stop at Sonoma Market place. I just wish the tour guide managed the time better so he didn't rush us at the second stop. The worse is that he saved half of each wine bottle to take home with him while he poured just a sip ot two for tasting and charged each tour participant $30 for the tasting.

Amazing Wine Experience

Had a wonderful day touring vineyards and learning about wines. Ulrick, our tour guide for the day doesn’t normally do tours so we were very luck. The man knows so much about and says he learns something new all the time. I had booked this tour for a different day but unfortunately there weren’t enough participants. Ulrick contacted me to let me know and change the date. He also change the pick up location from my convenience because it was my first time in the city. He is knowledgeable, friendly, and he kept us thoroughly entertained. The tour was full so we had a great time with banter and laughter and tasting all of the wines and learning how to actually pair the wines with something appropriate. I highly recommend this tour. They did a great job organizing it with a great guide.

Our tour guide Jerry is phenomenal! He was made our experience super memorable. His extensive knowledge of wine, history of the area and agriculture were embellished by his warm humor. We highly recommend this tour!

Wine tasting!

Let me start by saying that we enjoyed our half day Sonoma wine tour. Driver was punctual & knowledgeable. Don’t be fooled by the negative reviews. I was a little scared when I first booked but once I got to experience the tour it was great! First, please make sure you read the instructions on what hotels they pick up and times. This is one of the reasons why our tour started a little late. We had to pick up other people & driver had to get off and look for them. Second, the first winery was a boutique winery small but very nice people & our tasting was intimate/personal and got to learn about each taste of the wine. Lastly, the last winery had amazing views of the vineyards , perfect for pictures but was too corporate feeling. Don’t get me wrong it was great but not as personal as the first one. I think it’s important to support small local business & it’s great that taste of SF tours partners with Homewood winery. Half day tour for my husband and I was perfect ! We still had time at the end of the day to experience other parts of SF on our own.

Kirill and his wife were kind enough to pick up our group of 11 outside of San Francisco (we were lucky to be the only ones on the tour). He had a very comfortable, brand new transport vehicle for us, and it was red so very easy to remember. We did tastings at a small family owned winery and a very large one- very interesting to see the variety. Had a great time!

The wine tour was exceptional! We saw beautiful landscapes and toured two wineries. The Jacuzzi winery is absolutely beautiful! We had other folks on the tour, which provided additional engagement and an opportunity to meet new people. Our tour guide Ulrick was very knowledgeable about wine and the area, he was very helpful.The entire tour was about 5hours. FYI bring cash with you to tip your tour guide, it’s not included in your purchase and he will hunt you down…cashapp and Venmo are available.
