Owner description: As both owner and primary tour guide for your wine country tour, Sid takes great pride in creating a day of introduction and exploration, bringing his guests to smaller wineries that reside on the road less taken... these intimate and personal wine tasting experiences are borne of the relationships that Sid has created with winemakers and winery owners throughout wine country, and are the days and memories of which perfect vacations are made. Healdsburg Wine Tours can create a wine country tour to fit your specific needs and requests, or take advantage of Sid's extensive knowlege of the Healdsburg and Sonoma County areas to discover the hidden treasures and incredible beauty of wine country with Sid's personality, charm and experience to lead the way.

We have hired Sid and Co. in the past and came back for more. Once again we visited some lesser known, yet fabulous, wineries and thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our California friends who are active in Wine Country circles were pretty impressed that we were able to tour some of these venues and were envious. A lovely day all around.

We were celebrating our 20th year anniversary in Healdsburg, and feel fortunate to have found Sid and Joe to make it a very special weekend for us.

Joe picked us up promptly at 10 and took us to some of the most spectacular and exclusive wineries in the region. We learned so much from him during our 4 hour tour. We also had a fabulous picnic lunch overlooking the whole valley.

I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting the area. It's money well spent.

Joe picked us up at Hotel Healdsburg at 10am on a hot July morning. He took us to four very different wineries over the course of the day. First to a beautiful, sustainable organic vineyard where we had a private tour and tasting. (here we bought a case, and also joined the wine club) Then to a slightly larger producer where we got a tour of their cave. We ate our box lunches on a picnic table in a quite spot where he dropped us off, overlooking the valley. Next to a tiny winery for a private tasting, and lastly to a very large vineyard where we tasted reserve wines in their Enoteca tasting room. It was a great balance of large & small.
Joe was great - very knowledgeable, a real gentleman. He was a pleasure to be with and we would recommend this trip to anyone looking for a special day in Sonoma.

Sid is a great guide: very knowledgeable about local wines and wineries and very personable to talk to. He set up a great itinerary of 6 wineries, but as we talked in the car he made adjustments on the fly.

In many cases we were arranged private tastings. While in each winery he faded into the background letting the host drive the interaction, but always listening to try to discern our tastes and interests.

We loved our day in the Alexander and Russian River valleys and Sid made it better than we could have arranged it ourselves.

This was our first visit to Healdsburg in Sonoma County and including Healdsburg Wine Tour was a great addition. Our guide for the day was Joe and he really worked hard to make it day about wine, fun and relaxation. The Town Car was very comfortable to ride in and you always feel a little special when someone drives you around, especially if you are tasting a lot of wine. Joe was full of local knowledge and wine making notes and shared this throughout the day.

From the beginning they worked with us on a list of wineries and once we narrowed it down we were ready for a great day. Door to door service made it so easy. We stayed at H2 Hotel which is also really great. We went to smaller or non-commercial wineries to experience what we couldn't buy in our large wine stores at home. The personalized attention from the winery staff was great and we got to meet a few of the wine makers. This is due to the relationships the tour company has built with the wineries and you do get "special" treatment.

We would recommend (and already have) Healdsburg Wine Tour to anyone. Well worth the time and money.
