    What to Expect
    We will visit three award winning wineries and sample their offerings. All of the tasting fees are included. Each winery has been carefully selected for it's unique character, knowledgeable and friendly staff, and of course, their delicious wines. You will also have the unique experience of touring a wine cave at one of the most scenic wineries in all of Napa and Sonoma. (Cave availability limited during harvest)

    This cave tour will give you more insight into the wine making process and provide history about one of the oldest family run wineries in the area. We will then make a stop at an Italian family owned winery and stop for lunch, where you will have the chance to taste artisanal cheeses, imported salami, fresh local breads, Panini Sandwiches, fresh deli, green salads, pizza, flatbread, anti pasta, including vegetarian and gluten free options, as well as wine by the glass!

    At the second winery you will be dazzled by the selection of award winning wines as well as enjoy a barrel tasting, followed up by another small production winery focused on Rhone veritals and techniques, we will also have a little surprise for you as well!

    Our vintage buses, Pearl, Poppy, & Skye have been thoroughly restored and updated with modern amenities to provide a safe and unique opportunity to see the sights of San Francisco. Since they only seats 6-7 people, Pearl, Poppy & Skye can go many places that larger tour buses have been banned from or just cannot access, including Alamo Square (Painted Ladies), Lombard Street, and even those narrow alleys with beautiful murals in the Mission!

    Painted Ladies Tour Company is a small family business, so Josh and his team take great pride in making sure guests feel well taken care of and have an awesome experience. Josh’s wife, Virgine, runs our front office to answer any questions or emails you might have prior to booking.

    When we did the trip, we picked up a couple from a meeting point in Sanoma. Suggest you email and ask them directly. Cheers
