In addition, we will go to the upper Sonoma Valley - the most charming part of the whole growing region and home to famous wineries and great scenery.

Our adventure combines wine tasting and wine walking tour within one of Sonoma famous wineries and wine tasting with wine experts. It's a pleasant and an informative experience.
