May I choose the wineries I wish to visit?
Yes, our goal is to customize a tour to your personal choices. Together Wine Country Chauffeur and you will choreograph a tour with your personal winery choices.
May I arrange a tour which fits my wine interests to a certain varietal or theme such as Zinfandel or wineries with art displayed?
Yes, it is our intention to provide a tour which meets your tastes, and we will make every effort to match your varietal, special interest, and location choices with available winery locations.
What about lunch?
It is our experience that a six hour day of wine touring and tasting go by much too quickly for our clients. Therefore we do not typically schedule stops at restaurants for lengthy sit down luncheon. We are happy to provide you with choices of local quality delicatessens for your lunch to expedite your nutrition requirements, and then get you to the next winery.
I would like to learn more about how grapes become wines. Is it possible to actually talk to a wine maker, and have a wine production and barrel room tour?
Yes with sufficient notice we can deliver you to a winery which will give a tour focused on wine making information.
Please Note: these types of tours and tastings require more than the usual 45 minute stop, therefore lowering the number of wineries visited.
Will my tour include small family owned wineries in additional to well known national brand wineries?
Each tour is planned around our client's wishes and we can make itineraries which include only family or national brands or both.
Can I visit wineries to buy wines I can’t buy at home?
Distribution varies from state to state, but most wineries offer wines only available for purchase at the winery.
Do you offer stops at wineries with “caves”.
Yes, we will be happy to take you to wineries that use caves as part of their wine making program.
Do you pick up at Airports?
Yes, if you wish us to pick you up at a Northern California airport, we can make arrangements to deliver you to your lodging or rental car agency in the area.
Are you insured & fully licensed?
Yes. Wine Country Chauffeur is licensed with the Public Utilities Commission. The PUC has strict guidelines for insurance and safe driving practices. Wine Country Chauffeur's license is TCP 18657.
