On a carriage drawn by two magnificent draft horses, travel through the vines and winding lanes to wine tastings at award-winning boutique wineries in Sonoma County's Alexander Valley. Only a 25 minutes drive from Cottage Grove Inn, the 5 mile tour begins in the tasting room of Alexander Valley Vineyards' winery, where you'll indulge in a delightful sampling of rich and complex wine varietals. After this tasting, you'll board the waiting carriage and set off on a 2-1/2 hour adventure through creeks and between grape vines to tastings at the stellar Soda Rock and Hanna wineries. Along the way, relax and enjoy complimentary sweet and savory gourmet edibles, including organic apples and cheese, along with chilled spring water, while relaxing and delighting in the sights and smells of the picturesque vineyards and vistas of the coastal range. You can even reach out and pick grapes from the vines along the narrow lanes without spilling a drop from your wine glass! The tour concludes back at Alexander Valley Vineyards with a guided stroll through the cool, vaulted chambers of their wine cave, which has been carved into a hillside and filled with aromatic oak casks.
Spend the afternoon on more than a wine tour! It's a romantic and thrilling adventure with an intimate backstage look into the world of California wine!
