Travel deep into the vines of Sonoma's wine country to premium tastings at boutique wineries. As part of the tour, our guests will be guided through the gothic chambers of a wine cave and be treated to a barrel tasting from one of the oak casks. Traveling over hill and dale in a carriage pulled by two magnificent horses, you'll enjoy tastings at 3 award-winning wineries and be served gourmet snacks and chilled spring water along the way. Enjoy the relaxed pace, breath-taking scenery and world class wines while leaving the traffic far behind. Your coachman will provide an insider's view of the local history, the lifecycle of the vines, and the wine-making process. This is more than a wine tour -- it's a unique and romantic wine tasting adventure! Check out our web page at TheWineCarriage for tour details and a bonus tasting.

Our group had a great time with Bret, super fun day, relaxing and memorable. It was rainy and we still had an awesome time, carriage is covered. Highly recommend this excursion. Bret was super prepared and a great guide!

A friend and I were looking forward to visiting wine country, and when I found the site for the Wine Carriage I booked it without even a second thought. Who wouldn't rather spend the day in the actual vineyards rather than in a car driving to different tastings? You start the tour at the Alexander Valley Vineyards where you can... More

This trip far exceeded out expectations. Brett, the carriage driver was amazing with his two beautiful horses. We went to 3 wineries tasting lots of gorgeous wines over about 5-6 hours. Including a tour of wine caves. The weather was perfect and the carriage was a great way to travel. We even got to drive the cart for a little... More

My husband and I have visited California's wine country previously, but this was our favorite visit to date by far! Do yourself a favor and get out of the rut of driving from one tasting room to the next ... Spend a few hours with Bret and his trusty steeds Willie and Django on the Wine Carriage. During a scenic,... More

Having friends visiting America for the first time from Nepal, I wanted them to experience "California at its finest", and to get a genuine taste of the west coast natural landscape. They were thrilled with the Wine Carriage Tour and made a brother out of Bret. What a day in the countryside in summer! Beginning at 11 and ending at... More

I was a guest of friends years ago and decided to take my own visitors this time. Everyone had a blast. The horses were amazing and huge. It starts in the AM, includes a great lunch, and visits to 3 terrific boutique wineries, then wraps up around 4PM. Bret knows everything about the region, all the great stories, the industry,...

What a unique and wonderful way to spend a day in the wine country. We drove from Napa which took a little over an hour but we're sure glad we did.. Everything was wonderful, Brett's stories about the area, the beautiful horses and carriage, the ride through the vineyards and the picnic lunch. If you have the chance don't miss... More

While Friday morning was an unusually wet morning in the Sonoma Valley, Brett made every attempt to make our experience a unique and memorable one! His love for the area, knowledge of the vineyards, and genuine kind spirit made our trek through various wineries one to never forget! Alexander vineyards, Soda Creek Vineyards and Hanna vineyards were wine-stops worthy of... More
