Wine Cube Tours

Wine Cube Tours is an innovative tour company based in Sonoma County providing you with a custom wine country adventure. While small wineries are the focus, upon request we can integrate other industries which have become the backbone of today's Sonoma Wine Country. Spend one day with us and you will have the option to visit unknown wineries, farms, cheese-makers and olive oil producers. We keep things small by only accommodating up to 6 guests to allow for a more intimate experience.

Raymond was an excellent driver and tour guide! His attention to detail in planning our day around lunch at St. Francis and the Petroni vineyard made our day even more special. Raymond took time before we arrived to find out what kind of wines we liked and filled in the gaps for us. His choice of VJB fit right into our schedule and was not a vineyard on our radar. From the moment we were picked up (on time) Raymond gave us his undivided attention. His knowledge of wine and the area enhanced our experience. He even sent us a link so that we could download the pictures that he took (at no extra charge).

The mini van was spotlessly clean, plenty big enough for 4 and easy to get in and out of. We have found our favorite driver! Five stars is not enough for Wine Cubed Tours!

Sbragia Family Vineyards prides itself on its single vineyard varietals and small case production. Varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. Most of the wines are made from vineyards owned by the Sbragia family, but do include select vineyards from Sonoma and Napa Valley as well. Our wines have received many accolades and are considered some of California’s best.

We went here on the recommendation of another winery and were blown away by the views, the personal attention and the wines. Chris did a fantastic job educating us about their wines. We packed a picnic lunch and ate it at one of the tables overlooking the valley. I would definitely like to return!

We participated in the Winter WINEland January 13-14, 2018, and we chose this winery as our first check-in point. They warmly greeted us with our glasses with pink and/or black mustache decals attached (owner Jim has a big mustache). The whole weekend we were asked about the mustaches on our glasses! They make a lot of different wines and they are very good and very reasonably priced. We bought 3 bottles: Bettino, Chianti Mountain Road and Ancestor zin (total $114 for all 3). We visited 9 wineries over the course of the weekend and this was one of our favorites. Owner Jim is quite a character! Other wineries visited and enjoyed: Papapietro, Amista, West, Zichichi, Martorana, Mill Creek, Armida, and Porter Creek. And we stayed once again in our favorite Glen Ellen at our favorite Jack London Lodge and gratefully they survived the October wildfires and are doing well. Do not be afraid to visit the wine country. Still wonderful!!!

Fritz Underground Winery

Built in 1979 into the hillside in Dry Creek Valley, our vision was to harness natural efficiencies and unique attributes of a subterranean winery, including cool temperatures. 15 Minutes north of Healdsburg. Open daily 10:30am to 5:00pm, except some major holidays. Cave tours by appointment on weekends. Located 15 minutes north of Healdsburg and 30 minutes north of Santa Rosa.

This was our last of three stops on our day trip to Healdsburg. We were quickly greeted by the owners son who took us on a tour of the property and the fabulous cave where they store their fabulous wines. It is one of three cave winerys and we were so happy to have been able to tour the property. We had stopped in town and picked up some snacks to have during our time there at Fritz. It was a great day and a great way to finish our tour in Healdsburg.

Reviewed By greenham01 - San Jose, California

This was our first winery stop, so perhaps it suffered from an overly high expectation set. Small place, with a few tables outside overlooking the vineyard to sit and enjoy the wine (no outside food allowed here, there are picnic tables around the corner for that).

There are 2 flights of wine tasting available ($15/$25) - if not mistaken a flight of 4 and a flight of 6(?). I'd be hard pressed to remember the wines - to me. not very memorable, the possible exception is their old vine Zinfandel which stood out from the rest. But, quite "average" overall, to me.

Went here recently with a group from Auberge on the Vineyard...Roxanne took us up there...the weather was really foggy and rainy, so we didnt get much of a chance to soak in the view, which has got to be spectacular. Michael is the owner and does everything at this small vineyard. You can learn more from Michael in an hour than you can in a full day of tours at other places. This man is passionate about what he does and loves to share what he knows and does. The wines are wonderful!...its a short drive up from Cloverdale- about 20 minutes..this winery is at 2000' elevation with puts at the highest winery in Sonoma and as a result makes some really interesting wines. We joined his wine club and brought some home that evening! great stop!....get Roxanne to take you there from Auberge on the Vineyard!

Pedroncelli Winery

A good winery for winetasting.

Reviewed By Kevin P - Vienna, Virginia

We came here while on a winery tour originiating from Sonoma, CA. I thought the grounds were beautiful, and the wine wasn't as great. I liked the wine but not enough to buy a couple bottles. They had a lot of red wines but on a hot day it didn't feel so great towards the end of the day. I'm just not a big fan of the red wines they offered, but it was still a great winery. Loved the staff as well! Couldn't of been any nicer.
