Travel deep into the vines of Sonoma's wine country to premium tastings at boutique wineries. As part of the tour, our guests will be guided through the gothic chambers of a wine cave and be treated to a barrel tasting from one of the oak casks. Traveling over hill and dale in a carriage pulled by two magnificent horses, you'll enjoy tastings at 3 award-winning wineries and be served gourmet snacks and chilled spring water along the way. Enjoy the relaxed pace, breath-taking scenery and world class wines while leaving the traffic far behind. Your coachman will provide an insider's view of the local history, the lifecycle of the vines, and the wine-making process. This is more than a wine tour -- it's a unique and romantic wine tasting adventure! Check out our web page at TheWineCarriage for tour details and a bonus tasting.

The Wine Carriage is a delightful way to explore Sonoma wine country. I took my first ride with a group of friends in July and I can’t wait to bring more friends and family back to experience it. Bret and Lily are consummate hosts and give a great, easygoing, and personal behind-the-scenes tour that you just can’t get anywhere else.... More

A friend invited me along on a Wine Carriage tour and I had no idea what I was getting into. It turns out that this is the best way to go wine tasting. Enjoying wine as we rode through farm trails, over bridges and right through vineyards was amazing. Our driver Bret, who is also the owner was a great... More

Brett the owner is a great guy to spend 3 hours with learning about the area and doing great tastings on his horse & carriage. Cody & Cheyenne are beautiful Belgium horses and it is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in wine country....trip included organic snacks provided by Brett.

A perfect way to tour Alexander Valley vineyards. Bret and his two marvelous Belgians Cody & Cheyenne provided a very relaxing, informative and enjoyable tour through the vineyards. Alexander Valley Vineyards, Hanna and Soda Rock provided comfortable venues for tasting their delicious wines and the cave tour and Alexander Valley gave a little relief from the heat :)
