This was really fun! Jason picked us up from our Airbnb and took us to 3 wineries, all of which were wonderful. Jason was personable and helpful - you don’t have to worry about researching wineries or having to drive after wine tasting. I would highly recommend - the experience is great for groups or couples! This was one of the highlights of our trip to Sonoma.

Amazing day!
Summer_C, Feb 2024
We were picked up at our Cottage and had the tour to ourselves… such an amazing day! The stops were picked with care and Jason was so knowledgeable about the area and industry. Not to mention a safe ride home and an important tip for a rookie wine tasting mistake were included 😆 I didn’t want it to end, but knew I couldn’t drink much more wine and still remain standing. Until next time!
Just fun
Hank_N, Dec 2023
All of it. Great driver comfortable bus. Nice ride. Need more nudity and dancing. I don’t have anything else to say
Response from Host, Jan 2024
Hank, we will absolutely keep your recommendations on the side burner.

Cheers to you and a prosperous 2024! Thank you for supporting our small family business, we appreciate it so much!
Great day!
STACEY_W, Dec 2023
We had a great experience with Jason on this tour. The boutique wineries we visited were all unique and had a nice variety of Sonoma wines. The charcuterie lunch was well timed and delicious. Loxton Cellars was our favorite. Relaxing and enjoyable way to sample Sonoma!
Response from Host, Dec 2023
Thank you so much Stacey, we appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. One of the best ways for us to grow our small family businesses is for guests like yourself to share the pleasant experience you had on our tours. Our Sonoma Valley itinerary currently does have Loxton Cellars. They offer an amazing experience and are the hallmark of the small production wineries we like to include on our tours. Please share your experience with your friends when they visit the Sonoma area we would love to have them join our tours, and of course contact us when you visit, it was a pleasure having you join us.

We had a great time with Jason and the other people in our group. We visited three different wineries and had tastings at each one. The charcuterie lunch was delicious. Everyone was very friendly and we really enjoyed ourselves. Jason is a wonderful host!

SAMANTHA_S, Sep 2023
This was a most excellent tour! Small group, and well thought out wineries. The whole experience was fantastic. The charcuterie board made up for us was also amazing at our second winery. I would highly recommend this company. Prompt service very professional!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. We appreciate the time it takes to share your experience with others. We take pride is providing our guests the best experience possible. We have adjusted the capacity for our tours and we have found that keeping the tours small with a maximum of 10 guests works really well. We can give each guest the best experience possible, and the wineries can also give their best to each of our guests. Christine and I want to thank you for joining Sonoma Wine Rides Join in Group Wine Tasting Tour and we hope to see you the next time you visit Sonoma -- Cheers!
Great tour
Rick_F, Sep 2023
Great tour by Jason! The wineries he scheduled included many different varieties of wine and a cave tasting. First class operation and the charcuterie he provided was perfect!
Response from Host, Nov 2023
Rick, thank you so much for the kind words. We are thrilled that you were pleased with your tour. We absolutely believe in creating diversity in a day of wine tasting. There are so many different varietals grown in Sonoma County. We are also thrilled that you were with us on a day we went to Deerfield Ranch Winery this is the newest addition to our Sonoma Valley Itinerary-- They have an amazing cave and incredible wine. Our guests have been raving about this experience. We have many different itineraries for our join in group wine tasting tour. Christine, the CCO (Chief Charcuterie Officer and my beautiful wife and parter in the business) has been working hard to perfect the charcuteries. We hope you will join us again the next time you visit Sonoma.--- Cheers!
Personable Wine Tour
Jessie_B, Sep 2023
If you’re looking for a warm, enjoyable host, book Jason with Sonoma wine rides. Each winery we visited had a boutique feel and Jason made sure that every guest was comfortable. Highly recommend this company for an amazing, personable experience in Sonoma. Cheers!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Jessie, thank you for booking with Sonoma Wine Rides and we are beyond happy that you had an amazing time. We work very hard to create an unforgettable wine country experience for our guests. All of the wineries we visit do have that boutique, intimate feel. We love taking our guests to wineries that they may not have found on their own.

Relaxing tour through Sonoma!
Emily_K, Aug 2023
Our driver Jason was amazing. We had 3 groups of people and the vibe was great. It was a great afternoon! We went to smaller wineries which made each stop feel personalized and special!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Emily, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. Thank you for the kind words. We love going to the small production wineries. When your goal is to experience good wine, it creates a bond and most of our groups instantly connect. Our current join in group tour wineries all provide exceptional service and take excellent care of our guests. Thank you again for the review and we look forward to the next time you visit.
Great Tour Guide
Peter_C, Aug 2023
Trip was great and Jason was great. He picked us (group) up and dropped us off at our VBRO house and he was punctual. Picked three great wineries and kindly keep us moving along although we were about 45 minutes over our time limit but he was considerate and didn't push too hard. He had everything we needed and more (coolers, etc....). Overall, the trip was a bit pricey (fees and tip) but this is California. The Somalias were extremely knowledgeable but probably too knowledgeable for me (as a wine drinking novice). The wineries were quaint and nice. Enjoyable day!
Response from Host, Sep 2023
Peter, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. Our join in group tours are a great place to start for a wine drinking novice. The wineries we visit are not pretentious in any way and are extremely welcoming. The best part of a day of wine tasting is finding wine you absolutely love....another key aspect, especially for a novice is figuring out what you may not care for so when you visit you local wine shop back home you will have a point of reference. The tasting fees charged by the wineries we visit are extremely reasonable (typically $20.00 - $35.00/pp) compared to the 'high end" wineres in Sonoma and Napa counties where fees are $100.00 per person or more at each winery. Thank You again for joining us.
I had a time!!!!
Ida_S, Aug 2023
Jason was the perfect host and took us to vineyards with amazing ambiance! I truly enjoyed all of the tastings and wineries. I will definitely book again with this company!

Jason was amazing, fun activity for our group of 5 friends. Wineries were great. The snack box with charcuterie was perfection. Super good time was had by all!

Pickup was right on time...
Dawn_P, May 2023
Pickup was right on time and there were 4 others on the van so we were a small group of 6 which made for a very pleasurable experience! The three wineries Jason selected for the day were great and were nearby from our pickup point.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Thank you so much for sharing your experience. One of the great benefits of being in Sonoma County is the proximity of amazing wineries. We know our guests would rather spend time at the amazing wineries instead of spending hours sitting in a bus. Our current maximum capacity is 12 guests, but on many of our tours we have less than 12........ We appreciate your business and look forward to our next visit.
Great
Molly_D, Oct 2022
Jason was awesome! We had a great time!! There were a lot of tastings at each of the three wineries, so a little more food than the charcuterie provided would have been nice, but it was very tasty!
Response from Host, Nov 2022
Molly, Thank you for the review. We are so happy you enjoyed the charcuterie, we are sorry it wasn't enough for your appetite. We are thrilled you had a great time and hope you will join us the next time you are in the area. Cheers!
Fabulous experience
Renee_H, Oct 2022
