All private tours include an itinerary consultation at no extra cost.
During the consultation, we offer guidance on wineries that will be a great fit specifically for your group. We can recommend wineries that will accommodate your group size, offer certain wine styles, have full-kitchens or allow picnics, are dog-friendly, offer tours or any other criteria you might be interested in.
We can also provide recommendations for timing & logistics.
After our consultation you can plan your itinerary and make all the reservations yourself, or I can plan the itinerary and make the reservations on your behalf for an additional $15 per person.
For groups of 6 guests or fewer we will make all winery reservations & plan your itinerary at no extra cost.

Please note: For a charter or private tour a $200.00 or 20% deposit, whichever is greater, will be charged upon confirmation of the booking. As long as we have not received the deposit, the charter or tour is not confirmed and your requested date will not be held.
Lunch is not automatically included in your private tour, but we can provide you with a variety of lunch options to best suit your group.
When wine tasting, some of our favorite options include enjoying one of the high-quality winery restaurants, or enjoying a picnic lunch at a winery after your tasting.
You’re welcome to bring your own picnic items, or we can provide a delicious deli boxed lunch for $25pp. You can view the menu here .
Tour group sizes often fluctuate. Give us your best guess. We are happy to work with you as best we can to establish a range of likely attendees and price the tour with that range in mind.
Depending on the day of the week and group size the hourly rate may change.
Also, keep in mind that vehicles have a maximum number of seats and wineries often have a maximum group size they allow.
We really wish we could! But there is no way to provide sufficient insurance in this scenario – and believe us, we’ve tried.
Your personal car insurance will not provide coverage if your car is being driven commercially by one of our drivers. (It is considered commercial the moment money is exchanged for services).
There also isn’t any commercial insurance policy that will cover someone else driving your car commercially.
We do have a general liability policy which covers operations outside of your vehicle, however we feel this is insufficient since there would be no additional coverage, including comprehensive or collision coverage, since your personal policy becomes invalid.
Given this, we don’t feel comfortable putting you or our drivers at risk.
However, we provide tours & transportation in our own fleet of comfortable, spacious & fully-insured private vehicles for all group sizes – so get in touch today to get more information!
