Wine and beer are one of life's simple pleasures. We’re Tommy and John, partners in spreading the love for the Santa Cruz Mountains and Santa Clara Valley wineries and breweries. We create a memorable and everlasting wine and brew tour experience to some of the most spectacular places that we know of. We offer the finest wine and beer tasting experience in San Jose, San Francisco, and the entire Bay Area! We are here to help you discover some of the more off the beaten track wineries and breweries you may not even know existed so close to home! You don't need to go all the way to Napa to find them!
WHY GO TO NAPA? EVERYTHING IS CLOSE TO HOME!
Most limo wine and beer tours will just drop you off at a location without providing anything extra. Unlike these limo tours, we make sure you and your group are well taken care of. We want to create memorable and everlasting experiences to these spectacular California wineries and breweries. We’ll take you off the beaten track to the lesser known gems here in Silicon Valley near San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Cupertino, The Santa Cruz Mountains, Gilroy, San Martin and Morgan Hill. You don’t need to go all the way to Napa for fantastic wine and beer. We make it fun and convenient for you…and we provide you with a nice picnic boxed lunch too!
