On a carriage drawn by two magnificent draft horses, travel through the vines and winding lanes to tastings at award-winning boutique wineries in Sonoma County’s Alexander Valley. The tour begins in the tasting room of Alexander Valley Vineyards’ winery, where you’ll indulge in a delightful sampling of AVV's rich and complex wine varietals. After this tasting, you’ll board the waiting carriage and set off on a 2-1/2 hour cross-country adventure through creeks and between the grape vines to tastings at the stellar Soda Rock and Hanna wineries. Along the way, our guests relax and socialize, while enjoying the sights and smells of the picturesque vineyards and vistas of the coastal range. You can even reach out and pick grapes from the vines along the narrow lanes without spilling a drop from your wine glass! The tour concludes back at AVV with a guided stroll through the cool, vaulted chambers of the wine cave, which has been carved into a hillside and filled with aromatic oak casks.
