Owner description: Guided small group wine tasting tours throughout Sonoma County's beautiful Wine Country. Enjoy an unforgettable day while you visit a minimum of four small family owned or boutique wineries in the northern Sonoma wine regions of the Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley - up around the historic town of Healdsburg. Our wine educators/guides will introduce you to the wines, wineries, and vineyards of Sonoma County - perfectly blending education with entertainment. Tours stop at a gourmet deli where you may purchase a fresh lunch that we take to the next winery and eat picnic style. We keep our groups small - 8 guests or less and we always cover the tasting fees!

What an incredible experience! My husband and I were "wine beginners" and a little intimidated to take a wine country tour. From the minute Jerry picked us up at our hotel in San Francisco, we knew we'd made the best choice of tour companies. Our tour was small (just one other couple). We let Jerry know that we were "beginners," so he tailored his information to our level. We loved visiting the small wineries as the people were so passionate about their wine.
I highly recommend this tour. It was an amazing day! The ride to Sonoma & back was smooth, Jerry was so very helpful, the wine was amazing! Can't say enough! Jerry even helped us box up our wine purchases so they were easier to ship home.
We learned so much about wine and are excited to learning more! We've already told all of our friends that if they're in San Fran, they HAVE to call Jerry & Amanda!

The standard tour is great. Picked up right on time. Guide Jerry took us to unique wineries which had colorful staff that made the tour slightly educational but mostly just fun. Of course the makeup of your group has a lot to do with the experience. All tastings were included in the reasonable price. My first trip to wine country so I don't have anything to compare this with.

My husband and I recently took two tours with Wine Country Jouneys as part of our time in Sonoma. Jerry was a great driver, picked us up on time, had a lot of good advice and knowledge about the region and was very fun and easy going with the group. We loved all the wineries he introduced us to and bought and / or joined from most of them. What we liked best was that these were small wineries and most of the time, you were tasting with the owner / grower / winemaker in their home or on their property. This is such a more meaningful experience than being another tourist at Kendall Jackson and gives you such insight to the entire wine making process, the different processes they use and how Sonoma is different from other regions.

We felt the price was very reasonable for the wonderful service experience we had. We would recommend WCJ to anyone traveling to Sonoma and will certainly call on them again next time we are in town!!

After a bit of research, I am so glad we stumbled across Wine Country Journeys. Right from the start, Amanda was extremely prompt, courteous and helpful when booking the tour. There are so many great reasons why this tour was amazing, but 2 of the reasons we initially chose Wine Country Journeys are -
1. No Driving Necessary- Jerry, our AMAZING tour guide, picked us up and dropped us back off at our hotel in San Francisco (extremely easy and convenient)
2. Small Group (8 couples max) -there were only 2 other great couples on our tour which allowed for a more intimate, comfortable setting.

This tour went above and beyond our expectations and really created a very personalized experience for each couple to enjoy ( when we arrived at one of the wineries for lunch each couple had personalized signs waiting for them which was a nice touch)
I cannot find enough great things to say about this tour. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you Wine Country Journeys for an amazing experience! It is a tour we will never forget and we highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to experience Wine Country.

If you want to see the wine country in a relaxed way with an experienced guide, this is your tour! They provided us door to door designated driving in a comfortable van. The tour guide Jerry was knowledgable and we learned quite a bit from him. We wanted a laid back atmosphere which is exactly what we got. We actually had a small group of only one other couple which was nice also. We ended up going to see 4 wineries and stopped for a good lunch. We felt we got our money's worth and then some.
