Experience the beauty of Sonoma wine country with all five senses on a guided bike tour visiting local wineries. Get out from behind the windshield, slow down and experience wine country from a whole new perspective - by bike! On the Full-Day Tour, you'll join a small group (limited to just 8 guests), hosted by a knowledgeable, local tour guide who will enhance your education of the vine-to-bottle process. Guided groups ride at a relaxed pace, averaging just 3 to 5 miles of pedaling between stops at local wineries for tastings. This full-day tour visits three wineries and includes a delicious picnic lunch.Description
Tour meets at our Sonoma shop, approximately 1 mile south of Sonoma Plaza, at 9:30 a.m. You will be greeted by your Tour Guide who will assist you with your bike fit and operation. Following a pre-ride orientation, tour groups generally depart close to 10:00 a.m.
You'll ride 3 to 5 miles to the first winery; Tour Guides typically punctuate any longer biking legs with a pause to enjoy the scenery, take photos and give some background about the vineyard growth cycle or local history, to the degree the group is interested in learning about these topics.
At each of the wineries, your tour guide will introduce you to your Tasting Room Host who will lead you through a tasting flight of wines and discuss any of the wine-making philosophies and practices that are unique to that winery. Tastings generally last about an hour at each winery.
After your first tasting, the group will get back on the bikes for another 3 to 5 mile biking leg along Sonoma's back roads before arriving at a second local winery for a tasting followed by a delicious picnic lunch catered by the talented team at the Girl & the Fig. Expect a selection of artisan sandwiches, green salad, fresh fruit and assorted nibbles.
After lunch, the group will ride another 3 to 5 miles to the third and final winery of the day before riding the final stretch back to conclude the bike shop where any wine or retail purchases you made throughout the day will be waiting for you. The Full-Day Tour typically concludes close to 4:00 p.m.Highlights
