Join other wine adventurers on a small-group, day long tour tour through the Napa Valley or Sonoma 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 delicious picnic lunch, served at a winery, is included. Napa and Sonoma Valley Join-In Tours are $110 per person; North Sonoma County Tours (Healdsburg & Russian River) are just $99 per person.

Awesome way to view local winery's. Mike Small is an awesome tour guide. The wines were exquisite from the four winery's that we visited, each with there own unique quality. Book with them and you will have an unforgettable experience.

I got a recommendation from a couple friends to try out Platypus for a tour this past Friday... and man were they right! You are going to see some of the smaller and lesser-known places (this is a good thing), and our tour guide (Greg) was incredible. Highly recommended!

I am normally not one to write reviews but I decided to break my silence here because of the fantastic time I had on the Platypus Wine Tours! 3 of my friends and I went on a Platypus tour last Saturday. Steve was our tour guide and he did a great job of picking out 3 beautiful wineries for us to explore. Everyone we met was super knowledgeable. Steve had some great stories about the history of the region and awesome in site into all things wine. I felt like I was getting an insiders looks into Napa and no one once made me feel bad for not being knowledgeable and my less than refined pallet. Highlights of the trip included Cher from Tamber Bey singing us her wine song (darling) and Dino from Turbal who let us drink straight from the bottle - don't worry we finished it :) I have been to Napa a couple times before but I seriously cannot picture doing it any other way now! I will most certainly be back! Ask for Steve - he's the best!

Went on a tour January 17. Second time I've gone with Platypus! They do an awesome job. I had Greta the first time and requested her again this time. She takes you to some of the smaller wineries that you would have otherwise probably never heard of or experience. Very unique places with great wine! Lots of fun! The tour is limited to 10-12 people so it is much easier to have a great experience.

Greg our tour guide was great! We went to some great wineries and had a lovely packed lunch. We are so glad we did this tour. It was great not to have to think about where we'd go or drinking and driving. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Scheduling process was very easy, I filled out the online application the day before our available date, and luckily there were still space for a tour. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our little group of 8 people with Andy Hyman. The boutique wineries were great. We brought wine from each place and shipped a box home. During the tour you also got cheeses after our first winery, then we had lunch after the 2nd place. One of the winery gave us chocolate pairing with tasting and another place gave us food pairing from their own kitchen with our tasting.

This was by far our favorite experience during our entire stay in the Napa and San Francisco area. Each stop was very well-planned and we gained an incredible new understanding and appreciation for wine, the region, and the various wineries and their owners. We loved the individual attention and hospitality at each winery and felt comfortable asking questions. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and fun, but also extremely patient as he kept our rowdy group on track. I was overwhelmed by what an amazing experience this was and will truly never forget it!

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.

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!
