Napa Valley Wineries
Napa Valley is home to more than 450 wineries in its 30 mile span. Our winery partners have been selected for the great wines they produce, their scenic locations, the vineyard tour, and the warm hospitality they offer guests in their tasting rooms. At these wineries you will taste some of the acclaimed Cabernet Sauvignon that has become Napa Valley’s signature varietal, but you’ll also find some delicious and interesting varietals such as Chardonnay, Rosé, Zinfandel, Petite Sirah, Merlot, and more.
Our Napa Valley Winery Tours include stops to four wineries each day. The wineries we visit on each tour vary. Here are some of the partners who are included in regular stops:

Chase Family Cellars
2252 Sulphur Springs Avenue, St. Helena, California 94574, 707-963-1284
Chase Family Cellars has a rich family history that dates back a full century. Sarah Esther Chase Bourne and her wealthy husband purchased the property in the late 1800’s. The vineyard was replanted in 1903 (after suffering from phyllozera) with Zinfandel and other varietals. The Zinfandel still thrive as the vines are dry-farmed in the gravelly alluvial soil.
At the heart of this winery is the Hayne vineyard. Visitors can experience Chase Cellars’ Hayne Vineyard Zinfandel while standing right in the Hayne Vineyard and enjoying the beautiful scenery. The winery’s Zinfandel Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, and Petite Syrah are enjoyed by locals and visitors.

Pestoni Family Estate Winery
1673 St Helena Hwy, St Helena, California 94574, 707-963-0544
Pestoni Family Estate Winery upholds the high standards and practices of thier great-great-grandfather’s winemaking tradition without compromise. From growing to harvest, fermentation to bottling, every step in our process is accomplished by hand to achieve the purest expression of place. For them, winemaking is not a business; it is their heritage. In 1882, a twenty-four year-old Albino Pestoni immigrated from the small Swiss village near the Italian border where he grew up to the unknown wilds of Napa Valley, California. He first settled next to some cousins in Bell Canyon, an area at the base of Howell Mountain, then referred to derogatorily as ‘Dago Valley.’ Around this time, wealthier and more distinguished vintners such as Frederick Beringer, the Chaix Brothers and Gustave Niebaum were also moving to Napa with dreams of producing wines in this new, lush, uncharted world. Luckily, Albino was undaunted by his competition.
849 Zinfandel Lane, St. Helena, California 94574, 707-963-3141
Raymond Vineyards was founded in 1970 and is one of Napa Valley’s pioneers and grand estates. The Raymond family arrived in Napa in 1933 and became deeply connected to the valley’s winemaking origins. In 1970, they established a 90-acre estate in Rutherford—this now comprises 300 acres in Rutherford, St. Helena, and Jameson Canyon. The vineyards in Rutherford and St. Helena are certified organic and Biodynamic, and 100% of the winery’s power comes from renewable solar energy. Five generations of the family have worked to create a Napa icon; they are known for producing elegant wines with a beautiful balance of finesse, power, and complexity. Today, proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset is helping to make Raymond Vineyards a dynamic destination that’s enjoyed by all. In early 2013, Raymond Vineyards was awarded the Wine Enthusiasts Wine Star Award for “American Winery of the Year.”
Trefethen Family Vineyards
1160 Oak Knoll Avenue, Napa, California 94558, 866-895-7696
Trefethen Family Vineyards was established in 1968. Eugene and Catherine Trefethen purchased seven farms surrounding a magnificent (and run-down) 19th century winery. The redwood winery is now a historic landmark and a working wine cellar. Eugene and Catherine had originally planned to sell all their grapes, but their son, John, had a passion for making wine. John produced Trefethen Vineyards’ first commercial wine in 1973. Three years later, the winery’s 1976 Chardonnay earned “Best Chardonnay in the World” honors at the 1979 Gault Millau World Wine Olympics in Paris. Today, the Trefethen family’s third generation, Loren and Hailey, assist their parents in crafting exceptional wines. They are continuing the family tradition of being passionate for the land, its people, and the art of wine making. The family has never purchased outside grapes and is committed to sustainable winegrowing. Visitors enjoy tasting Cabernet Sauvignons, Merlots, Cabernet Francs, Pinot Noirs, Chardonnays, Viogniers, Rieslings, and more.
