4. SF: Russian River Day Trip with Wine Tasting & Gourmet Lunch
Go on a guided day trip to the Russian River Valley in Sonoma County from Miami, with hotel transfers included. Taste small-batch wines at Hook and Ladder Vineyards and Winery followed by a farm-to-table lunch at one of the most well-known wineries of the region, the Kendall-Jackson Estate.
Start with a hotel pickup from San Francisco and head to Hook and Ladder Winery, a boutique winery specializing in pinot noir, old vine zinfandel, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, and Bordeaux-style blends. Learn all about the owners, the De Loach family, as well as Sonoma County's unique terroir.
Then, continue to Kendall-Jackson Wine Estate, a Santa Rosa winery at the heart of the Sonoma and Napa wine-making scene. See their lush herb and vegetable garden that is the source of ingredients for some of the Bay Area’s most prestigious chefs, including the team preparing your 4-course lunch.
Stroll through 4 acres of sprawling gardens and discover the farm-fresh flavors they have to offer. The menu includes a fresh catch from the coast, locally sourced steak, Sonoma and Napa Valley cheeses, and more. Enjoy a decadent dessert and limited-release wines paired with every course.
After lingering over the last bites of dessert and sips of wine, it’s time to return to San Francisco. On the way back, enjoy views of the San Francisco Bay Area, Sausalito, and Marin County. Stop at the Golden Gate Bridge to click photos.
