Bon Vivants’  Wine Country Tour


Among the hundreds of California wineries that offer you great wines, there are a select few where you can enjoy your tasting in a quiet, elegant setting, at your leisure…and seated. For example, at Napa Valley's Swanson winery, relax in a fin-de-siecle Parisian salon at a table covered with pink roses, to be guided through a sampling of several excellent wines, accompanied by artisanal chocolate and fine cheeses. Tour and tasting fees are often somewhat higher at these wineries than at others.

“We thoroughly enjoyed the individual attention and the wonderful selections for meals.”

“Wonderful trip. We thoroughly enjoyed the individual attention and the wonderful selections for meals. Truly a high point of our trip.”

– Peggy & Bob S. (Huntsville, Alabama)

“I have been many times, but [it was] never as interesting as the day there with you.”

“[We] had a wonderful day with you in the Wine Country last week. I have been many times, but [it] never was as interesting as the day there with you. The ones we visited, I had not been to before, which made it even nicer. …Thanks for a great day and I look forward to seeing and touring with you again.”
