We’ll visit three wineries from our selection of affiliated vineyards, you’ll learn about the growing and winemaking processes as well as trying the finished product. Visit the winery shops and find out more about their other products including olive oil, olives, and even whiskey.

Our Previous Guests’ Experiences
The best part was driving around Napa in the open-air trolley and hearing our guide Richard give us facts about the land. It was interesting and very scenic. I can’t imagine doing a wine tour on a bus when you can do this instead!
Great way to see multiple wineries in one day without having to plan meals and all the visits ourselves. Wineries were great, food and wine were amazing, the trolley was a fun way to travel.
Definitely recommend it if you are visiting for the first time. It’s a great way to visit a few wineries worry-free!
This was my very favorite experience in Napa! The trolley was such a fun way to see more of Napa Valley and truly experience different wineries (and not worry about driving!! :-))
