We go beyond being just a basic vehicle-and-driver company.

What to Expect During Northern Sonoma Tours
Imagine strolling among the green vines of grapes, sampling local wine made in small batches given only to select buyers, and learning the history of the art of winemaking. Our Northern Sonoma wine tour will bring you on a journey of discovery to Sonoma Valley’s northern regions, including the Dry Creek Valley, Healdsburg, and Alexander Valley.
Northern Sonoma wineries have a rustic charm and are not crowded with people. We recommend semi-private tours of couples, families, friends, and corporate professionals in small groups. The smaller size allows us to visit all the types of wineries that you want to visit during the tour, including the small garagistes vineyards. Since all our Northern Sonoma tours are personalized, the exact same route is never followed twice.
There will be no set schedule of the wineries for your tour. If you are part of a join-in tour, our guide will customize the tour to give the very best experience possible for everyone in the group. However, if you are on a private tour, you can choose the wineries that you wish to visit in Northern Sonoma Valley.
An average tour takes anywhere between 5 to 8 hours, depending on the itinerary, but you can also opt for an overnight stay at one of the quaint inns at the winery. At California Wine Tours and Transportation, we can help you with your Northern Sonoma Tour in the following ways:
- Transportation from the airport to the hotel to the wineries and back
- Recommendations for wineries, which may be reserved directly
- Planning the tour from beginning to end
Claim to Fame of Northern Sonoma Valley
The Wine Country has gained huge fame for its Cabernet Sauvignon. Sonoma Valley offers three signature types of grapes that make the top of the list. These include the Old-vine Zinfandel from Dry Creek Valley, Pinot Noir from the Russian River, and Cabernet Sauvignon from Alexander Valley. These three grape varietals have emerged as the top three contenders as the perfect grape for this region. They consist of wine characteristics that are unique to Northern Sonoma and have a distinctive taste and aroma that makes them instantly recognizable during a blind tasting.
