Join other wine adventurers on a small-group, day long tour tour through the Napa Valley, Sonoma or North Sonoma County wine country. This is a fun, social tour for folks who'd like to experience this wonderful area and learn a bit about the wine-making process, while tasting our world-class wines. Our focus is on smaller back-roads wineries and historic properties. A very tasty picnic lunch, served at a winery, is included. Napa Valley, Sonoma Valley, or Russian River / Healdsburg-area Join-In Tours are priced at $110 per person.

I have used Platypus Tours several times during my trip to Napa and Sonoma. They are by far the most knowledgeable wine tour company, and the drivers understand what true hospitality means. Platypus Tours offers lunch on their tours. The drivers are also courteous to ask what type of wines his/her guests enjoy, and customize their tours based on their guests preferences! Love Love Love!

We LOVED our wine tour with Mark!! We were a little hesitant about a full-day wine tour, but are so glad we took the plunge and went for it! The tour was great - Mark was so knowledgeable and we got to see so many areas around Napa. The wineries were fabulous - lesser known wineries with incredible wines and fun, knowledgeable staff. Our favorite was Hopper Creek Winery. I would recommend this tour to everyone and anyone! I plan to come back to Napa and will absolutely request a tour with Mark again!

The entire day was well organized, carefully planned and a fun journey up and down the Napa Valley. Our tour guide was spectacular and he took special care to make certain we were back at our hotel in time to prepare for a dinner reservation. We highly recommend allowing them to show you the valley in their comfortable bus complete with water, snacks and lunch! Thanks, Platypus!

Mark was a great guide. Lots of little things that he paid attention to, that we would have missed. All good wine selections. All good people on the tour. Good friends, if only for a day. Would recommend and use again when we return.

This is definitely the best wine tour I've had so far. Our tour guide, Michelle, was fun, nice and very knowledgeable. Also, the smaller sized tour made for a much better experience. They did a great job picking small, unique wineries. I'm definitely booking with Platypus again!

I would definitely use Platypus again. Steve was fantastic. We felt like we saw the "real" Napa and got away from the crowds. We didn't feel rushed and the small group wa perfect. Thanks, Steve and Platypus!

Never go to Napa or Sonoma without at least taking a Platypus tour one of your days there. Don and Cathy the owners do a fantastic job. Last week was our 3rd visit to Napa in the past 3 years and our 3rd platypus tour. They even keep records of wineries you visited on your previous platypus tours so that they do their best to not visit those again if you don't want to visit them again. It's a bus that picks you up at your hotel or B/B around 10-10:15 in the morning and returns you anywhere from 5-7pm. Normally it's 5pm, but this last time we were running late and spent a lot of time at our last stop so we got back at 7pm. The driver Rob , who was fantastic, even asked us if we wanted to stop at the Welcome to Napa sign and take pictures. We all said yes of course. We'd say anything after visiting 4 wineries. He even took group pictures for the website. You get to visit 4 wineries, mainly the smaller ones, and then have a picnic lunch at one of them. There are usually around 12 people and you are all great friends by the end of the day. It's the easiest and most economical way to visit 4 wineries in a day and not worry about how much you drink because you don't have to drive. I highly recommend Platypus.

Very interesting article in the NY Times about the emergence of a different POV on how quality wines should be judged. American wine tastes are driven by the "the Wine Advocate" and founder Robert M. Parker Jr. Big, bold and with a high alcohol content. But is there more to to tasting wine than having your buds bulldozered? many winemakers feel that,,,http://www.nytimes.com/2015/05/31/magazine/the-wrath-of-grapes.html
A band of upstart winemakers is trying to redefine what California wine should taste like — and enraging America’s most famous oenophile in the process.

We can't think of a better way to spend Labor Day weekend than being driven around on a Platypus Wine Tours bus to fun, interesting, and delicious wineries in Napa Valley!

Earthquake update. We will definitely be conducting all our tours this week!! If a town and her tourists ever needed wine served with a smile it's now!! Thank you everyone for checking in on us and we're relieved to hear that most had relatively limited damage.
