Wine Road Tours whisks groups big and small throughout the rolling hills of Napa/Sonoma Wine Country and beyond. Thanks to its location in wine country, and to its resident wine educator, the locally owned company informs each tour with an intimate knowledge of the area's wineries and varietals. Backed by that knowledge, Wine Road Tours dispatches a full fleet of lavish rides, including a Mercedes-Benz and a Lincoln luxury stretch limo. Its party buses, meanwhile, fire up festivities on the road with a multimedia-entertainment center and wrap-around leather couches, and its coach bus seats up to 56, enough space to fit a championship-winning peewee football team and its extra supply of self worth.
Amenities abound inside the plush limos of California Elegance Transportation. As passengers cruise through the Bay Area and its surrounding wine country, they can enjoy satellite radio, a DVD player, and bar essentials, including complimentary ice and soda. When the limo stops, passengers alight at any destination of their choosing or at one of up to four wineries on their prearranged wine-tasting tour.
Robin Hood Limousine’s highly trained drivers are well acquainted with the winding roads of Napa and Sonoma Valley. After all, they’ve been navigating their classic Lincoln stretch limos through them for years on guided tours of the region’s more than 300 local vineyards and wineries. The expert drivers can design custom wine-tasting itineraries for these trips, drawing from their familiarity with the local area to pick out ideal spots and avoid all troll-guarded bridges. They also extend their chauffer services for a variety of special events, shuttling their limos and specialty cars to airports, weddings, and proms throughout Northern California. During these luxury jaunts, six to nine guests enjoy amenities such as televisions and cushy leather seats.

The team takes great joy in customizing packages to their guests’ preferences, whether customers are looking to taste-test a certain hard-to-find vintage, or just want to be driven around by someone other than the family dog. A dedicated driver handles navigation for the duration of each tour, allowing the grape gurus to focus on enriching the tour experience by answering in-depth questions and providing insights into Napa and Sonoma Valley history.
