What you'll do

We will bike on our local country roads while enjoying stops in vineyards, walking through 160 year old wine caves and even, during the harvest season, we enjoy tasting the grapes and testing the sugar levels. All our experiences are geared towards each small group's needs and wants. We will enjoy a private lunch at one of the wineries, a behind the scenes cheese tasting (exclusively offered to our guests every day but Sundays) and more.

The wineries we pick are diverse and the route is designed to show our guests what Sonoma has to offer.
Other things to note
Our locally guided experience includes the lunch, waters, and the behind the scenes cheese tasting and tour but does not include the tasting fees with typically run between $15-30 average per winery.

Had an amazing time on the wine tour!! Biking is an amazing way to see Sonoma. Our guide took us to three amazing wineries all with their own feel. Would recommend to anyone!

Awesome experience with Phyllis, we loved every moment and the bikes were so much fun! Someone in our group had a knee issue and these bikes made of a breeze, the staff was super accommodating and messages you beforehand to get more information on your group. This experience made our trip so special!

We are so glad we chose this activity, there is no way we would have known all the backroads and we enjoyed bicycling through the area. The ebikes were in great condition - and adjustable (a boost can be added when going uphill but otherwise you can turn it off for more exercise). It felt good to enjoy so many great wines and also have an active day. We visited 3 tasting rooms which were new to us including two with stunning huge vineyard views. Lunch was delicious and the day felt leisurely, interesting, we learned some new things about wine making, Phyllis was a lovely knowledgeable guide and we bought several bottle of wine to bring home.
