El Dorado Limousine's wine tours wind through the foothills of Sacramento, chauffeuring guests to nearby vineyards and wineries throughout the grape-dotted country. Drivers swing by one location to load groups of eight into lounge-worthy limos, indulging them with champagne and other luxuries while they wax oenological about the area's history and knowledgably narrate an excursion fit for an epicure. Half-day tours stop at a few of the area's more than 200 wineries, where guests are lead to tasting rooms and endowed with information about the location they are visiting, wines they are tasting, and grapes they are juggling. The three-quarter-day tour tacks on an extra two hours that give sojourners time for one or two more wineries, a light lunch between tastings, and extra time to spend appreciating vineyard views and national forest-scapes or playing hundreds of games of tic-tac-toe.
