The tasting went well. The only advice is to take with you some kind of food (cheese, fruit, nuts) because the wine is strong enough and difficult to drink. Only after the second winery we went for lunch, by this moment you already feel quite hungover. Therefore, those who can not drink wine without snacks, it is better to take them with you.

Wineries are all different which is good ~ about 6 tastings per winery (mostly reds). It felt that you have little rush with tasting and someone is pouring a new glass before you have finished the first one. The lunch stop - don’t buy it advance. There are plenty of restaurants in the area where to choose for your taste. I liked our tour guide George, he told many nice facts about Napa Valley and Sonoma. These comments are extra value what you won’t get driving the Napa by yourselves. In addition, tour bus was convenient and on a way back to SFO there is a good chance to take a nap.
