Wine tours are all we do! We offer full-day, private and semi-private tours (between 2 and 6 people) visiting wineries in Napa or Sonoma. We pick up directly from most hotels in San Francisco and Wine Country. A unique itinerary is built for each tour, based on preferences. You are also able to request specific wineries, or leave it up to us and we will take you to some of our favorites. The same tour has never been done twice! Tours are done in luxury SUV’s with comfortable leather seating and water on ice. All guides are certified Sommeliers and provide a great balance of knowledge and fun. We look forward to meeting you and showing you the best of Wine Country!

My wife and I booked this tour almost 3 months in advance. I was aware that they take up to 6 people per trip, but was told they group people with similar tastes together. I was clear that we are only interested in big cabs. I told them 8 wines that we love and asked to go to those or... More

We chose Max Napa Tours for a tour of Northern Sonoma and they picked us up directly from our hotel. It was a weekday, so we were their only guests on the tour and Evan was our guide. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Evan. He is sommelier, so he is extremely knowledgeable about varietals, the wine-making process and Sonoma... More

I hired Max Napa Tours for a day in Sonoma with friends. I was very much impressed with Max...both his personal style and extensive love and knowledge of wine. The day was perfect and we all loved spending the day with Max. He was fun and interesting and a great driver. The vehicle was super comfy too. He arrived at... More

We were blessed with mild weather which made the whole day so much more enjoyable. We choose Max because of TripAdvisor reviews & weren't disappointed. With 3 couples and our guide, the group dynamic proved to be enriching and fun. A major part of a winery tour is the camaraderie that you establish with your fellow tasters-- savoring your reactions... More

We highly recommend this tour. Myself, my Mum and another couple, for a total of four people were picked-up in San Francisco, and taken on an all-day tour with Evan. Evan was great: it was a treat to learn that he is an accredited sommelier (so he really knows his stuff!) and he was a very gracious host and guide.... More

Loved our day out with Evan! Really enjoyed the different characters of the wineries that we visited, Evan's expertise and the lack of wine snobbery! I was really impressed by how smoothly the day ran, and little details like providing bottles of water just when we were starting to feel tipsy! Napa is absolutely beautiful and I am so glad...

Evan was a fantastic guide. One of the best we have ever had. We were able to try a huge variety within 5 wineries and ended up with a new found respect for California wines. Locations were gorgeous and the lunch stop was so delicious, everything you need for a jaunt in wine country. The personal touch throughout the tour... More

We chose Max as he is a small company conducting bespoke tours. His knowledge and enthusiasm is infectious, and he clearly loves his job. We toured with another couple, the conversation and wine flowed freely. At every place we visited, we were met by enthusiastic people who also loved their jobs, a particular highlight was Nalle vineyard, a small family... More

Max took us on a tour of five vineyards in Sonoma. Communication was great, pick-up was right on time, and the SUV was very comfortable. We were joined by two others. The day was perfect. Max is friendly, knowledgable, and fun --- it was like touring with friends, albeit ones we just met. The vineyards he selected were outstanding. It... More
