Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

As you board your motorcoach sit back and relax for a scenic drive to the Carneros District in Sonoma County. On the way we will cross the Golden Gate Bridge and leave the city behind to travel through the rolling hills and vineyards on our way to Sonoma region. Sonoma's rise to vinicultural prominence was fueled in part by the development of the Carneros District in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Wineries here and around the town of Sonoma are noted for their fine Chardonnays, Cabernets, Merlot and Riesling.

In route to Carneros, you'll make a brief photo stop at the Golden Gate Bridge, Vista Point. The Golden Gate Bridge is admired for its magnitude and graceful beauty, the bridge took over four years to build and was completed in 1937. Its two towers rise an impressive 746 feet, 191 feet taller than the Washington Monument. Weather permitting, you'll witness sweeping views of San Francisco Bay and the city skyline, as well as Alcatraz, Angel Island and Yerba Buena Island, two islands situated in the San Francisco Bay, Berkeley, Oakland and downtown San Francisco. The stop at the bridge may be done on the return to the ship at the guides discretion.

As we wind our way through the valley you will enjoy the gentle rolling hills and vineyards in the distance . We have scheduled two vineyard's with private wine tastings . The Vineyards private guide will be available during the tastings to answer your questions whether you are an wine connoisseur or just starting to enjoy fine wines. You'll visit two prominent producers, ranging from major labels to boutique vineyards. After the tour and tastings at each of the vineyards you will have some time to explore and purchase some wines which they can arrange to send to you. Some states and countries may not allow the shipment of wines , the staff on site will be able to help you with this.

As we depart the Camaros District sit back and relax as we make our way back into San Francisco and your ship.. As we approach the city , watch for the views of the city, our ship and the bridges of San Francisco.
