What to Expect

Vine Ally in Sonoma Proper

You’ll be greeted by a knowledgable and friendly guide to check you into your walking tour. Our experience starts with stories from California history that relates directly to the landmarks that dot the Sonoma Plaza as well as our path to the first restaurant, The girl and the fig.  We visit four distinctly different and notable restaurants that offer contrasting courses to pair with local Sonoma wine. Our finale takes place with local, artisan chocolate at one of two special-ending locations depending on our group size and the day of the week you select.

Sonoma Proper offers a lot, let us take the uncertainty off your plate and replace it with gourmet food!

The tours are held rain or shine. In the event of inclement weather, we will be able to go inside many of the establishments on the tour. We also provide ponchos in case of sudden weather changes or if you do not have your own umbrella. However, we advise to check the weather conditions for your days event and dress appropriately.

Parking is available at nearby parking lots or on the street. In Sonoma, the public lot is located behind the Barracks and the Cheese Factory (Spain and First Street East). In Napa/Yountville, the lot is adjacent to V Market on Washington Street. In Sausalito, the public lots are all along Bridgeway and do require a credit card. We usually put enough money in for at least 4 hours, just to be safe.
