As a native Californian, I've been to the wine country a few times with family and friends, but Aloys' personal van tour, pick up door-to-door service, and his knowledge of Sonoma and Napa wineries rates extremely high with me. I appreciate what a success he's made as a small business owner and his personal service and attention to every detail. It began with a stop at Marin Headlines to snap photos of the Golden Gate Bridge and a toast to our fellow travelers (total of 7 friendly folks) with a glass of California Champagne. I'm so impressed with all 4 wineries we visited--two before a delicious lunch at Bistro Don Giovanni and 2 after. We had plenty of time to taste the wines, enjoy the beautiful weather and to take photos, and check out the items in the shops. First stop was Jacuzzi Family Vineyards in Sonoma with a great wine tasting room and olive oil tasting right next door! I recommend their red Barbera and the white Arneis. On to Stag's Leap Wine Cellars in Napa where we sat outside on their patio enjoying generous tastings, and marveling at how the waiter could carry 7 large wine glasses to our table in one trip! After lunch we drove up a scenic winding road to the very private (reservations only) Pride Mountain Vineyards--superb wines and a tour of their operations inside a man-made cave. There's a line in the middle of the winery operations and on one side is Sonoma County and the other is Napa County. The day ended with chocolates paired with select wines at Trinitas Cellars at the Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa. Yum! For a memorable day and wine tour, sign up with Green Hills Wine Tours!
