As travel continues to open up, I think we’ll see more people than ever traveling in 2022. Napa Valley has been on my mind recently since we just moved to the West Coast and a vacation dedicated to wine just feels RIGHT. We did the Napa Valley Wine Train tour back in 2018 (and loved it!), so now, I’m interested in other Napa Valley wine tours we can take in 2022.
I thought I’d share the love in this post! Here’s a compilation of everything I’ve found for Napa Valley wine tours.

Napa Valley Wine Train
I’ll start with the obvious since this is the tour I’ve already done and highly recommend. We went to Napa Valley solely to do the wine train tour and it didn’t disappoint! They have several different tour options ranging in price from $160-$385 per person.
Austin and I did the full day Legacy Tour which took us to three different wineries: Mondavi, V. Sattui, and Beringer. All of them were great and the tastings they set up for us were delicious. The food they served on the train was also amazing. We started with a drink when we first boarded, then we were served lunch after the first winery, and dessert later on.
I will give a disclaimer here: most of the people on the wine train were older and looking for a day of relaxation. So, if you’re going to Napa for a bachelorette party or with a loud group of friends, you’ll likely want to look at a few of the other options below.

Napa Valley Wine Trolley
If you are looking for an option that can accommodate a large group, the Napa Valley Wine Trolley offers private tours as well as group options!
Their most popular group option is their Napa Valley Open Air Wine Tour which transports you on their open air trolley, giving you the perfect opportunity to take in the views, smells, and sounds of Napa Valley. You’ll stop at three wineries with tastings and have lunch at one of them. Along the way, you’ll also get a lot of information about Napa Valley from your tour guides.

Winery Tour via Limousine
If you’re looking for a more luxurious tour, you can book a wine tour via limousine. These can be private or group tours. The private tours look customizable, whereas the group tours have a set schedule including stops at 4 wineries, breakfast (with mimosas!), and lunch. The group tours start at $109 per person.
This company also rents out luxury vehicles with chauffeurs, so this would also be a good option for a bachelorette party in Napa Valley or a larger group looking for a Napa Valley wine tour.

Napa Valley Bike Tours
For those of you who want to get outdoors and enjoy the sights, smells, and feel of Napa Valley, Napa Valley Bike Tours has a few amazing options for you! They have pedal bikes and electric bikes to tour the vineyards. There is also a tour that includes a hot air balloon ride!
They also have an online store with apparel that says “will bike for wine” which would be the perfect way to gift someone one of these tours.

Create Your Own Wine Tour
Of course, the last option is to create your own wine tour. If you like to be on your own schedule and plan every detail of your day yourself, you totally can! I’d recommend choosing 3-4 wineries you want to see and then renting a car (with a designated driver) or planning to Uber between them. You’ll likely want about 1-2 hours at each winery to have a tasting, maybe a snack pairing, and tour the winery.
I’d recommend checking each winery’s website before heading to Napa Valley because a lot of them book in advance for tastings and tours.
I went to a few good wineries, but one that I’d highly recommend adding to your list is Castello Di Amarosa. This one wasn’t included in our wine train tour, but we made a special trip to see it separately. It looked like it was plucked right out of a fairytale.
What’s your touring style?
Let me know in the comments if you prefer more laid back tours or more luxurious tours. I’ll be honest – I love the luxury options, but I also love the quality of people you often find on the laid back Napa Valley wine tours.
