Our Full-Day Napa Valley Bike Tour is offered seasonally from March 1st through November 15th. During the Fall/Winter Season, check out our Classic Half-Day Bike Tour.
Your tour group (limited to 8 guests) will be led by a local, knowledgeable Tour Guide who’s there to enhance your education of the “vineyard-to-bottle” process. Before you get rolling, your Tour Guide will ensure that you’re completely comfortable with the fit and handling of your bike. And within the first mile or so, you’ll find the pace of our guided bike tours is definitely catered to casual riders, not cyclists.
You’ll pedal an average of 3-6 miles between stops at local wineries and tasting rooms. With a casual pace and frequent stops, the emphasis is on enjoying the scenery and discovering great locally made wines along the way.
Following your second tasting, you’ll enjoy a wine country picnic served on the winery grounds overlooking the vineyards. Lunch includes a delicious assortment of artisan sandwiches including turkey-brie, Sonoma chicken salad and roast beef with tomato chutney, accompanied by green salad, fresh fruit, olives, baguette and garlic dip.
Discover One of Yountville’s Unique Tasting Rooms
On the Full-Day Tour, our third wine-tasting stop often (though not always) features one of our favorite tasting rooms in the town of Yountville. The tasting rooms we visit not only have great wines, but also offer our guests a personally hosted seated tasting experience – making it a relaxing way to finish the day.
Note: On rare occasions when there are 4 or fewer guests signed up for the Classic Half-Day Bike Tour, those guests may be combined with the Full-Day Bike Tour for a total of up to 12 guests at the first two winery visits. Half-Day Bike Tour guests will depart after the tasting at second winery (before lunch). A maximum of 8 guests will stay on for the picnic lunch, followed by third tasting at a winery or a tasting room in Yountville.
Tour meets in Yountville at 9:30 a.m. and usually finishes between 4-4:30 p.m. Let your Tour Guide know if you need to finish by a certain time.

ABOUT THE WINERIES
When you’re looking for world-class wines, the Napa Valley boasts an embarrassment of riches. But when it comes to finding a wine tasting experience that stands apart, a warm and welcoming tasting room team who exude a sincere eagerness to share their knowledge makes all the difference.
In this spirit, the overall tasting room experience – and especially the people you’ll meet there – predominantly determines which wineries or tasting rooms you’ll visit on tour with us.
Tasting appointments are finalized 5-6 days ahead of your bike tour.
If you are concerned about duplicating visits, please let us know about any existing appointments you have made, so we can avoid those wineries on your bike tour: firstname.lastname@example.org
