Temperatures vary depending on the season and time of day in, so we recommend that you wear layered clothing in case of unexpectedly climbing or falling temperatures. Please note that the temperatures in Napa and Sonoma might be different to San Francisco. We recommend checking the weather forecast but, generally, we do not recommend wearing shorts or sleeveless shirts in the winter. However, we realize that everyone is acclimated to different weather and thus trust you to make your own judgement. For footwear, we recommend comfortable shoes, such as regular tennis shoes, sneakers, flats, loafers, boots, etc. High heels, beach flip-flops, and other open-toed shoes are not recommended.
Lunch is included with the price of this tour! We work with our local Sonoma and Napa caterers to provide you a fresh meal and a great experience while you enjoy your carefully-curated wines. You will have lunch at one of the wineries we visit during the tour.
