Owner description: Sonoma and Napa-Custom Wine Tours "Designated Driver Service". If limousines or tour busses aren't your style, we provide a professional driver and tour guide and quality wine tours from the comfort of your car. Our tours are casual and fun! We enjoy directing our guests to tasting quality wines that they will not find anywhere outside of the area or very limited distribution wines. We will order and pick up lunch for our guests at one of the many gourmet delicatessens or gourmet markets in wine country. We provide a cooler and our picnic basket filled with all of the necessities. We will set up your wine country picnic for you and find you a beautiful wine country setting to enjoy it. Together we will design your one of a kind tour.

We had a wonderful 2 days with Denise. She was prompt, cheerful, and always willing to lay out a beautiful picnic spread (with utensils and linens!). She has great taste in wine and will steer you to some terrific, under-the-radar producers. She will even organize daily itineraries and set winery appointments. Money well spent!

If you are looking for a professional and fun guided tour of beautiful Wine Country, then DaVine Wine tours is what you need. Denise was terrific. She was prompt, safe, thoughtful, and packed a picnic lunch. She is laid back and will help make your trip what you are looking for- whether it is remote, family-owned wineries that are off the beaten path, or a more publicly advertised winery, she will do it for you. She was knowledgeable about the area, a very safe driver, and lots of fun. Thanks Denise for showing us Sonoma and Wine Country for the first time! It was AMAZING!

Cannot say enough great things about Dennis and Denise. First class trip all the way around. It's so easy. They use your car, they hook you up with some of the most interesting winery experiences, they take care of everything. No way you could ever find the places they take you. Funny, informative, and very reasonable. Best part....they will ship your wine back home for you. Hassle free wine shopping. We will use them again and again.

I can't say enough great things about Da Vine Wine Tours. My fiancé and I booked a tour with Denise in 2011 and we absolutely loved her. Not only is she super-personable, but she is extremely knowledgeable about the wineries in both Napa and Sonoma and had great recommendations. In fact, when we decided we wanted to ditch the itinerary of big, commercial wineries after our less-than-stellar experience at Joseph Phelps, Denise took over and proceeded to book us appointments at amazing boutique wineries for the rest of the day.

So, when my girlfriends and I returned a few years later, we had to book Da Vine again. Denise was already booked by the time we made the request, but her husband Dennis agreed to be our driver. Not surprisingly, Dennis is just as amazing as Denise! He really made our vacation!! He brought us fresh strawberries and raspberry M&M's (he said they go great with red wine), went and got our lunch while we were tasting, and laid out a picnic for us after our second winery. He's just the best.

I've recommended Denise and Dennis to all my friends who travel to Sonoma. Not only will it be the best part of your trip, but their prices are incredibly reasonable, too. Book Da Vaine Wine Tour--you won't regret it!!

My girlfriend and I booked Denise for a day while in wine country this May. She came and picked us up from our B&B and took off in our rental car. Denise is extremely knowledgeable about everything wine related. She even knows many of the people that work at the tasting rooms. In fact, the first winery we went to, they gave us a free tasting since we were with Denise. Tell her what kind of wines you like and she will drive you to the best of that varietal. We bought our lunch from market in Healdsburg, and after a few tastings, Denise took us to a winery with a beautiful "backyard" where she set up lunch for us. Da Vine Wine Tours is simply the best way to tour the wineries in Sonoma.
