    Take a walk though private Sonoma County Vineyards any day of the year. A Sonoma Vineyard Walk guide will join you in the vineyards and share information with you about the terroir, the vines, and the wines as you walk. The walks include lunch and two tastings. You can sign up on line today and take a walk tomorrow. You can even bring your dog! This is a great way to actively explore and get out there “in” Sonoma Wine Country. The walks cost $125 per person but if you let us know you heard about the walks via Bay Area on the Cheap, you will receive a 10% Discount. Bring a group of 10 or more, and the price is reduced to $105 per person for a day of vineyard walking, lunch, and wine tasting.
