Joining one of the Napa Valley Bicycle Tours is a great way to go wine tasting. In this section, you'll find some of the top companies and a little more information on their wine tasting trip options.
I think you will really enjoy the wine tasting tours offered by Gateway Adventures. This company focuses primarily on bicycle tours in this region. The bicycle trips are called Sip 'N Cycle tours.
Here is what you can expect from their Carneros region bike tour:
Here is what you can expect from their Calistoga Bike Tour on the northern side of the region:
These trips include the use of a bike, helmet, unlimited water, picnic lunch and a professional guide. Tasting fees are not included and the cost per person starts at around $149.
Both tours start at 10am. They are offered every day of the week.
The great thing about Napa Valley Bicycle tours is that you can either go with a guide or have them help you plan a self-guided tour. If you know the area well enough or already know where you want to go, a third option is to just rent the bikes from them and head out on your own adventure.
Their bike tours are fun and they ride at what they call a 'tourists pace' so you don't have to worry that you might go too slow for the rest of the group. They also have a number of bikes to choose from so you can find one that fits you.
They have a few different pre-scheduled wine tasting tours. These Napa Valley Bicycle tours start at around $139 per person and allow you to visit around 3 to 4 different wineries during the day. They also have a half day trip that is a little less expensive where you can visit two to three different wineries.
This is a great way to experience this gorgeous region. Find out more about their tours on their website.
Gears and Grapes is another one of the great options for Napa Valley Bicycle tours. They have a couple of great wine tasting options. Each trip also includes a shuttle pick up and drop off in San Francisco. This is a great addition to the other options, since you won't have to figure out a way to get to Napa for your tour.
The first option is a one day tour. It starts at 9am when the shuttle picks you up from your hotel in San Francisco. You are then taken to Napa Valley wine country to visit up to four wineries. Each trip is around 10 to 15 miles, but you have the option to stop at any Napa winery along the way and take the shuttle for the remainder of the day.
Also included in this option is a picnic lunch at a vineyard along the way and some snacks to keep you energized for your ride. Two guides accompany each group.
At the end of the day, you are shuttled back to San Francisco. You arrive around 6pm.
The cost of this trip right now is $269 per person, per day. However, they also have some great specials running for some last minute trips, so visit their website to see if you can take advantage of one of their deals.
The second option is a more involved three day weekend wine tasting getaway. It includes three full days of cycling and wine tasting.
It includes two nights in a luxury hotel in Napa Valley. It also includes breakfast on the second and third day, lunch all three days and dinner on the first and second nights.
It is a more involved option, but great for those that love to go wine tasting and get a little exercise along the way. This trip starts at $1195 per person, based on double occupancy.
