Napa Private and tailored tours to individuals visiting Napa Valley.
The famous Greek playwright Euripides once said, “Where there is no wine, there is no love.” At Napa Valley, America’s own ‘wine country,’ we agree 100%.
Whether you’re a full-blown oenophile, a first-timer, or just someone who wants an excuse to drink in the middle of the day, a Napa Valley wine tour offers something for everybody; throw in the word “luxury,” and you have yourself a match made in vino heaven. One of the reasons why a luxury wine tour is recommended is because someone has already done the homework for you and has a tried and tested plan for you to get the best wine-tasting experience possible.
Established in 1986, California Wine Tours boasts of extensive service know-how of Napa wineries and vineyards, which has captured the hearts of many who search for that VIP experience that only Napa Wine Tours and Sonoma Wine Tasting Tour can offer.
So, “What do Napa private and tailored tours to individuals visiting Napa Valley have to offer?”
Napa Valley was officially recognized as the go-to destination for wine-lovers in 1976 at the Judgement of Paris, where it bested France in both the cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay categories.

Of course, Napa Valley and the Sonoma wine region were already well-established regions with many wineries consistently churning out award-winning labels. So, it makes sense to go for Napa Valley wine tours. In case you were wondering, this is what to expect at a wine tour of Napa Valley (with high-end chauffeured transportation).
11:00 am: Pick Up at the Silverado Resort and Spa
The journey starts at Silverado Resort and Spa. Just an hour north of San Francisco, this luxury hotel is located smack in the middle of the world-famous Napa Valley and around 400 wineries. The resort is the perfect place to start your Napa Valley wine tour since it keeps you pampered and relaxed with massages, facials, manicures, and pedicures, so you look your best on the tour.
In case you were wondering, the Silverado Resort and Spa is also home to two PGA championship golf courses, 13 lighted tennis courts, and biking and hiking trails if that’s your jam. But, the main attraction is, of course, the wine tours with 400 wineries to choose from, which ensures excitement and adventure around every corner.
California Wine Tours owns and operates the largest and most diverse fleet of luxury vehicles in Northern California, so there’s no need to be surprised when a BMW 7 Series, a full-size luxury sedan, complete with air conditioning, tinted windows, and a professional chauffeur/ tour guide pulls up in the driveway to take you on your tour.
11:30 am to 12:30 pm: Hall St. Helena – Art of Cab Experience
Each tour courtesy of California Wine Tours starts off with a bang at The Art of Cabernet Tasting, a state-of-the-art winemaking facility and hospitality center. Tucked away at the foot of the spectacular Mayacama mountains, this wine destination has been clearly designed to inspire visitors. The facility consists of two Hall wineries and tasting rooms, located on the valley floor at St. Helena and at Rutherford Hills. Since all tastings are private, guests get to enjoy a truly intimate wine tasting experience. For those on tour, Hall’s wines that come highly rated are just a taste of things to come, and at just $40.00 pp (60-minute experience), it’s a real steal for first-timers and wine connoisseurs.
01:00 pm to 02:00 pm: Peju Winery
Next stop – The Peju Province Winery, home to exceptional wines from their organically farmed estate vineyard. This is a great place for those who want to enjoy classic Bordeaux varieties in a beautiful setting outside – and socially distanced, of course. Peju Winery offers breathtaking views and an exquisite vino variety but is not pet-friendly (So, pet lovers, take your business elsewhere!)
This wine tasting experience that offers some of the most classic wines and warm hospitality costs just $45.00pp (45-minute experience) and comes complete with appetizer options for lunch. What more could you possibly ask for?
02:30 pm to 3:30 pm: Turnbull Winery $40.00 pp (60-minute experience)
Another must-visit is Turnbull Wine Cellars, which has been offering guests an authentic Napa Valley wine tasting experience for more than 40 years. Turnbull offers beautiful gardens and great-tasting wines (especially the red varietals) that can be enjoyed in a laid-back and comfortable outdoor environment. Known for having some of the best cabs, this charming winery is easily going to make it on your top 10 Napa Valley wineries list, and you’re sure to leave with a few bottles of 2020 Josephine Sauvignon Blanc when the tasting is over. This is, again, another beautiful and elegant winery to visit during your Napa Valley wine tour.
04:00 pm: Drop-off back at Silverado Resort
Like a glass of Château Lafite Rothschild, all good things must come to an end (no matter who’s pouring it). The Napa Private and tailored tours to individuals visiting Napa Valley, complete with high-end chauffeured transportation, is certainly going to be an experience you’re not going to forget long after that bottle of 2020 Josephine Sauvignon Blanc is empty. Overall, the wine tasting tour will be an unforgettable experience, not just because you get to visit some of the best wineries Napa Valley has to offer, but you have the good fortune of visiting those wineries with a fantastic guide/chauffeur.
California Wine Tours has a diverse fleet with over 100 luxury vehicles, catering to intimate wine tasting outings and lavish group events. Some of the favorites include; the 750LI Black BMW Sedans, Corporate Suburban’s, Limousines, Limousine Vans, Luxury Minibuses, and beautiful full-size Motor Coaches, complete with restrooms. But the highlight of the Napa Valley wine tour has to be the kind, knowledgeable, and professional chauffeur who was assigned as a tour planner and planned the entire tour.
