Enjoy Northern Sonoma Valley Wine Tours from Your Stay at Vintners Resort
Northern Sonoma County is home to Dry Creek Valley, Alexander Valley, and Knights Valley. The sunny, warm, and dry climate of the region allows it to create some brilliant wines, particularly Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. So, if you’re staying at the Vintners Resort, a luxury accommodation, you may want to consider some of the Northern Sonoma Valley wine tours for an opportunity for exploration, knowledge, and lots of fun.
These tours are designed to provide a completely relaxing experience. So, all bookings are made, transportation secured and planning complete. What you have to do, however, is show up, sit in the vehicle, socialize (or not), watch the beauty of the valleys, and sip some high-quality wine. Doesn’t that sound great? If you think so too, then this article will provide an example of what a day like that could look like for you.

A happy memory is always something that you can rely on to help get you through a challenge, but the process of making that memory is what ultimately matters. Live in the moment, and you’ll begin to see what amazing things life has in store for you, and this Northern Sonoma wine tour is one chance for you to live your life to the fullest.
09:30 am – Vintners Resort, Pick up from the Property
The tour begins at the Vintners Resort. If you’re already staying there for your vacation, then you must be well aware of the luxurious amenities it provides. You can, of course, enhance your stay there through a wine tour of the region. The resort is situated among the various wineries there, so the traveling time to get to these places is much shorter than when visiting them from other cities in California.
We’d also like to clarify that this sample is not limited to guests at Vintners Resort. Instead, the resort is only the pick-up point.
10:00 am – Matanzas Creek, Tasting
The first stop is Matanzas Creek. Here, you’ll spend a full 90 minutes learning about the sustainable farming the estate employs for making its wine and tasting five different wines that truly showcase what makes this vineyard special among the others. You can get a chance to feel how relaxing it can be to sip a fantastic Merlot that’s savored in ancient oak barrels.
The property allows you to breathe in the fresh air of the lavender fields and the lovely gardens, all maintained in the best way possible. At only $30 per person (pp), this wine tasting is truly a bargain.
12:00 pm – Chateau St. Jean Winery, Large Party Tasting
Often, Sonoma Valley wine tours are limited to only a few people. So, while that can be an excellent way to strengthen your relationship with people you already know, you can also mix things up by going to a large party tasting. The perfect destination for that is the Chateau St. Jean Winery. The visit here is already paid for in your trip, so you can focus on making new friends and enjoying wine at the same time. After a 90 minute stop, you’ll be on your way to the final destination.
02:00 pm – La Rochelle, Tasting
All Sonoma wine tours must end on a high note, and a visit to La Rochelle Winery is possibly one of the best ways to do just that. This winery has taken a new approach to its wine tasting format. Thus, it now focuses on an appreciation for your choice to go there.
So, you’ll need to inform them of what your wine interests are, and they’ll make sure to tailor your visit according to that. Some topics that you can choose from for your interests include barrel aging, creating complexity in wines, food and wine pairing, and much more. Whatever topic you choose will be discussed in detail by a wine-maker at La Rochelle. Obviously, all of this will happen while you continue to sip on the elite estate wines made from this winery. Some of the best wines that come from here include Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. So, if that suits your palette, you’re surely going to enjoy educating yourself and wine-tasting to your heart’s content.
