Napa Valley Wine Tours

By: crackmarketing
If you have chosen Northern California as your vacation spot this season, the first thing you must seriously consider doing is to go on a Napa Valley wine tour. There are more than 300 wineries in this region, and each one of them features a wine appreciation class, a wine-tasting event, or some form of wine related activity.

On the one hand, there are direct Napa Valley wine tours, in which a group will visit two or even three, and sometimes more, wineries and will get to taste large varieties of wine. The group will have a guide that will provide them with information that covers all aspects of wines in California. Right from revealing the intriguing history of the concerned winery to introducing new varieties of wines to guests, the guides make wine touring a fascinating experience. Alternatively, there are special Napa Valley wine tours that include features like a vehicle in which guests can be driven around, additional amenities at every winery stop, and all the accompanying entertainment.

A special Napa Valley wine tour is the limousine tour, wherein you get either a six or an eight-hour tour. You get to schedule and pick a particular destination for your team, and you are then chauffer driven from one location to the next in a luxury stretch limo. From driving alongside spectacular hills and into the stunning valleys of Sonoma and Napa County, you get to start your tour with complimentary bubbly or champagne, you get professional advice and tips at a modern winemaking facility, and you also get to visit three to four different wineries. Once this part of the tour is over, your limo will then take you to a catered gourmet picnic lunch, which is also present at one of the more famous wineries, so that you can take in the beautiful sights, the fresh air, vibrant colors, aromatic smells, and the subtle sounds of nature that epitomize Napa valley. You will discover that this is one of the finest ways to sample and learn from the brilliance of beautiful nature.

Another unusual yet intense Napa Valley wine tour is definitely the blind wine tasting tour experience. This is often misconstrued as people having to taste wine with blindfolds on. However, this is not true. The blind wine tasting experience is for the visually impaired people, and it gives them an equal opportunity to taste wine while getting educated at the same time. Blind guests are taken to wineries where they not only get to taste wine, but they also get to pick grapes with their own hands. After this, the group goes through a palette testing session, which involves jellybeans. From sniffing and tasting to trying to identify different colors, the tour is truly a gratifying experience. In addition, the tour also features one hour of wine tasting, where the group is ushered into a wine cave for tasting select varieties of wine.

But, out of all of the Napa Valley wine tours that are on offer, the most unique tour would have to be the Napa Valley Wine Train tour, wherein your group is given the chance to choose a special dining car, which could be the renovated 1915-1917 Pullman Dining and Lounge Car, the glass-topped 1947 Pullman Vista Dome Dining Car, or the open-air rail car. With luxurious plush velvet seats, this train journey lets you take in the breathtaking sights of Northern California.

Being one of the top tourist attractions, Napa Valley wine tasting tours are world famous. So, the next time you plan on visiting California for your holidays, make sure you go on a Napa Valley wine tour.
