Thanks G~rkan and Painted Ladies Tour Company for an excellent day wine tasting in Sonoma. The entire day was so enjoyable and so well run, especially what ended up being a private tour for just my sister and I.

All 3 vineyards were so well selected and the authentic Italian lunch was a highlight.

Highly recommend the Painted Ladies Tour Company for any tours around SF and in particular the Somoma Wine Tasting Tour if you enjoy your wine!

A fantastic day - Gurkan was the best tour guide, so chill and helpful. Loads of photo stops and extra without us having to even ask. We were in poppy the orange bus, so beautiful and the best vehicle I saw all day. Vineyards were great, all different and all fun. I’d go again for sure.

The ride in the VW bus was tight with 9 people but we had a blast. The guide was super knowledgeable and funny. All 3 wineries were distinctly different but all served great wine.

Chose this one because we wanted a small bus wine tour. The VW van is old, yes, but we're okay with that. There were only 5 of us in total, that was perfect. Our driver Gurkan was cool, laid-back, and knows wine. He chose some lovely wineries. The first one, Deerfield Ranch Winery was certified organic - a really nice and unexpected surprise as we've recently begun trying to purchase and drink organic wines. We enjoyed all three wineries. Highly recommend this tour.

Wow! Such fun! Armando was not just delightful in in entertaining us and adept at encouraging 3 pairs of strangers to bond and but knowledgable about wine and wine country too. We so enjoyed the wine and food at VJB in their Italian piazza and the extra bonus of chocolate and opera made the day!

What a fabulous trip!!! Every moment of our wine tour was so relaxing and fun. Our guide, Cousin Al, took care of us all day. The wineries we visited were so inviting. It felt great to arrive and find reserved seating waiting for us. Deerfield is a must visit! The cave tasting is to die for! VJB was also wonderful. A highlight was the accordion player and Italian serenade. We can't wait to do another tour.
