Itinerary at a Glance
DAY 1: Arrive San Francisco, California
Meet your private driver for your transfer to Napa Valley and your five-star resort, featuring a three-Michelin-star restaurant, championship croquet lawns, seven tennis courts, a nine-hole walking golf course, hiking trails, pools and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
DAY 2: Napa Valley | Guided Wine Journey
Internationally known as one of the world’s greatest wine regions, Napa Valley has more than 45,000 acres of picturesque rolling hills planted with vineyards year-round, with several hundred wineries calling the valley home. Explore a carefully chosen few with your guide during a day of specially arranged private tastings at three outstanding wineries, selected to match your preferences and palate.
DAY 3: Napa Valley | Farm to Table
In the early afternoon, meet your private driver-guide for transfer to Peju Winery, where you join your host at the winery kitchen or at their al fresco wood-fired brick oven for a shared, hands-on cooking lesson. Learn special tips for making delicious farm-to-table, wine-country inspired meal, and for pairing your dish with the perfect varietal.
DAY 4: Napa Valley | Culinary Adventure
On a private culinary tour, you’ll learn why wine country is just as renowned for its cuisine as for its viticulture. Begin at the new Oxbow Market, where a seasonal bounty of California specialty foods and produce awaits you. Visit 19th-century historic buildings that showcase the latest trends in California food and wine. Your culinary adventure includes stops at as many as seven venues, with tastings in each one.
DAY 5: Sonoma Valley | Towering Redwood Trunks
With your private certified naturalist-guide, you’ll go on a morning tour of the Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve. California’s redwoods are the tallest living things on earth — the tallest is more than 300 feet high. They’re also among the planet’s oldest life, with one dating back some 1,400 years. Your private guide explains the complex ecology of the coastal redwood groves as well as their history as you take in this stunning natural wonder.
DAY 6: Sonoma Valley | A Day of Viticulture
Meet your private guide for a bike and wine tasting tour in Sonoma Wine Country. The Sonoma Valley has an amazing range of terroir and microclimates that distinguishes it as one of the most diverse grape-growing regions in the world. Ride on county roads alongside the vineyards, stopping for tastings at two wineries along the way. Your tour is completely customized in accordance with your varietal preferences.
