$69 for a Winery Bike Tour with Lunch and Tastings ($150 Value)

The 4.5-hour VIP guided bike tour cruises through scenic Livermore Valley on Saturdays and Sundays from June 1 to November 1. Cyclists meet at Campo di Bocce (Saturdays) or Garre Winery (Sundays) to follow a minimum of two guides and one sweeper transport vehicle for a two-wheeled journey to at least two wineries.

During the tour, you will have a gourmet lunch with complimentary wine tastings and a chance to meet the winemakers who pour samples from reserve-barrel wines. You will also taste and learn about olive oils and balsamic vinegars. The day wraps up with a dessert and port tasting.

The guides design the tours for all fitness levels, leading groups along routes with minimal inclines. Throughout the tour, you can rehydrate with complimentary bottles of water, and the sweeper transport vehicle carries any bottles or purchases made at the winery as well as any cyclists too tired or too full from the tastings.

Bicycles are not included with this Groupon. You may ride your own or rent a mountain bike and helmet for $30.

Livermore Valley Wine & Cycle Tours

The history of wine in the Livermore Valley spans 250 years. Spanish missionaries planted the region's first grapes in the 18th century, and Robert Livermore sowed the first commercial vines in the mid-19th. These early efforts led to America's first international gold medal for wine at the 1889 Paris Exposition, when California grapes beat out bordeaux in the annual race to the top of the Eiffel Tower.

The guides at Livermore Valley Wine & Cycle Tours lead cyclists into this historic, scenic valley in which some 40 wineries currently reside. Rides between them follow moderate routes, letting peddlers soak in views of the canyons and ridges that rise and fall between the clustered rows of vines.

Customer Reviews

Barbara really does a great job of setting a safe yet laid-back vibe. The wineries we went to (Tenuta & Thomas Coyne) were both very good, yet different in scenery and ambiance, so I felt like we got some variety. We will definitely do this again, especially when we have visitors. It's a great way to get exposed to all the beautiful sights and yummy food & wine that Livermore has to offer.
