It is more important than ever to reserve & plan your visit well in advance! All Napa Valley wineries now require appointments for tastings. When you confirm your Self-Guided Bike Tour reservation, your email confirmation will include a link to our Planning Guide, which will help you choose a route and estimate timing for your winery appointments!

Self-Guided Bike Tour Overview

Even diehard “do-it-yourselfers” should consider a few important logistics before deciding to rent bikes and tour totally unsupported.

For starters, Napa Valley is a protected Agricultural Preserve and as such, the wineries within this pristine area are prohibited from serving or selling food outside of the context of an educational food-and-wine pairing experience.

You will also find that delis and markets are few and far between within the Ag Preserve, which is no big deal when the next town is only a 15-min drive away, but something to consider when planning an all-day excursion by bike.

And if you’re planning to purchase wine during your bike ride, carrying it while biking can pose another obstacle. Even if you bring a backpack, you’ll risk damaging your prized finds by exposing them to heat.

With all this in mind, you can improve your experience exponentially simply by booking our Self-Guided Bike Tour!

You’ll still pedal at your own pace, stopping at wineries you’ve chosen to visit. But, you’ll also enjoy the added conveniences of having your wine purchases picked up for you and a delicious box picnic lunch, catered by Chef Thomas Keller’s Bouchon Bakery, delivered to a winery* along your route. *Winery must have a permit to allow picnicking, and a wine tasting appointment is required when you will be picnicking onsite at a winery.

Seasonal sandwich selections such as smoked turkey & cheese, Parisian-style ham & gruyere, tuna Niçoise and a seasonal vegetarian selection on an assortment of Bouchon Bakery’s artisanal breads (gluten-free salad options are also available). Individual sandwich selections are accompanied by Kettle Chips and a sweet Bouchon Bakery treat!
