Come up-valley with us, past vineyards and blue skies edged by tall mountain ranges on either side to the old-fashioned town of St Helena. Home of the Culinary Institute of America and a handful of notable restaurants, we have selected this small town for our newest food tour showcasing talent and creativity framed by wine. Very convenient if you are staying in St Helena, Rutherford or Calistoga especially. But still close to anywhere in Napa Valley. We usually allow 8 guests, but if you have a larger group please contact us ahead of time so we can accommodate the experience for you.
- This tour includes six delicious destinations:
Clif Winery
Goose and Gander
Model Bakery
Olivier's
Archetype
Woodhouse Chocolates

This food tour made it clear that one easy path towards self-fulfillment is to eat and drink your way around Sonoma Square. If you haven't been on this tour, book now! You'll learn a lot in a short time. Sampling is the best!
