Tours depart daily from the village of Mendocino at 10:00 a.m., returning at about 4:00 p.m. Our luxury vehicle will pick you up anywhere in or near Mendocino Village (from north in Fort Bragg and as far south as the Elk) and take you on a guided day-long tour of the region's award-winning boutique wineries. The scenic ride takes approximately 35 minutes- a short drive along some of the prettiest stretches of the California coastline, followed by a journey through a hauntingly beautiful redwood forest into the lush Anderson Valley. Local wine guides will lead you in style to the lairs of some of the best—and least known—of California's North Coast vintners. You can kick back and sip sparkling wine as you enjoy the Anderson Valley's beautiful scenery. A gourmet lunch will be served al fresco at a scenic picnic spot, weather permitting, at one of the wineries. You can taste as many wines as you want during the day without the hassle or hazard of driving.
Depending on the size of the tour larger groups are taken our Ford Excursion SUV Limousine while smaller groups are in our new Chevrolet Suburban.
Your visits to the wineries will afford opportunities for barrel and reserve tasting, behind-the-scene tours, discussions with the winemakers, and in most cases reduced prices on wine purchases. You will also be able to purchase limited production wines not sold retail.
