San Francisco is rare among cities. Its beautiful natural setting, its rollicking history, its contemporary vibes and fine cuisine make for a fascinating visit.

In Napa Valley, the prime wine growing area of the United States, we highlight wineries that showcase fine art with their wine. Sip and sample fine wines as you drink in great art.

Unlike any other wine tour, SWT customized Napa wine tour features. A winery at the summit of Spring Mountan fantastic views and wine to match. Sit down
Wine tastings, gourmet winery picnic. Our wine tour company offers more than other tour companies. Exhaustive winery knowledge, Off-the-beaten track suggestions, excellent customer service. Hilary, my charismatic  step- daughter, has lived in Napa for over 20 years. She will join us for a meal and share her love of Napa with us.

You can choose from a half dozen olive oils, buy a glass bottle for a dollar, and have it filled with your olive oil of choice from a barrel.  My two bottles of olive oil, a  Sonoma Valley and an Italian Blend, wrapped in bubble wrap and carried in my suitcase arrived home safely.
