What To Bring On A Wine Tour

Essential Packing List for a Day of Wine Tasting in Napa and Sonoma

Wine enthusiasts, get ready to embark on an unforgettable journey through the picturesque vineyards of Napa and Sonoma. As you prepare for a day of indulging in exquisite wines and breathtaking landscapes, ensuring you have all the essentials in tow is crucial. At Wine Tour Pros, we understand the importance of a seamless wine-tasting experience, which is why we provide knowledgeable chauffeur drivers and hydration options to keep our guests comfortable throughout the day. In this blog post, we'll guide you through the must-haves for a day of wine tasting in Napa and Sonoma, allowing you to focus on savoring every sip.

comfortable clothes

Comfortable Attire:

First things first, dress comfortably and appropriately for a day of wine tasting. Since you'll spend some time outdoors, wear comfortable walking shoes or sandals with good arch support. Some people like to wear super fancy shoes. We get it, and we like cool shoes too. You can wear whatever you wish, but please bring an extra pair that are comfortable. Dress in layers, as the weather can vary, and be sure to have a light jacket or sweater on hand for cooler evenings. Sunscreen, sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed hat are also essential to protect yourself from the California sun.

Identification and Reservation Details:

Remember your identification, as wineries may request proof of age. Having your reservation details handy is also crucial, as many wineries require advance bookings, especially during peak seasons. Wine Tour Pros can help you with these logistics to ensure a smooth experience.



Staying hydrated is vital to enjoying your wine-tasting experience fully. While Wine Tour Pros provides water for all our guests, you're also welcome to bring your refillable water bottle to have on hand throughout the day. Sipping on water between tastings helps cleanse your palate and ensures you can appreciate each wine's unique flavors. If you want to go the extra mile, start hydrating the day before your tour.

wine tour snacks

Snacks and Light Bites:

Although wine tasting is the primary focus, having some light snacks on hand can help balance the alcohol intake and keep your energy up between winery stops. Consider packing a small picnic with crackers, cheese, charcuterie, and fruits. Some wineries also have picnic areas where you can enjoy your provisions. Wine Tour Pros offers chef-prepared boxed lunch options and suggests restaurant stops built into your tour itinerary.


A Camera or Smartphone:

The stunning vineyard landscapes and picturesque wineries in Napa and Sonoma are perfect for capturing memories. Remember your camera or fully charged smartphone to snap photos of the breathtaking views and share your experiences with friends and family. Don't forget to tag Wine Tour Pros! Your driver is always happy to take a group photo for you.
