Description

Our self-guided tour is geared toward you, personally. We give you all the tools you need to have a great day in the peaceful Calistoga vineyards and wineries and then send you out on your own to explore.  No groups of strangers, vans following you around, schedules to adhere to, or tour guides here.

We open at 10am, and recommend arriving between 10am and 12:30pm.  Since the day is yours to fill as you see fit, we don't lock you into an arrival time.  Upon check-in, we will spend adequate time setting you up on bikes, asking you a number of questions that will help us create a memorable day, and then cover with you a detailed map with your customized route.  A wristband will alert the host wineries that you're coming from the bike shop and entitle you to free tastings.  They also will hold any purchases you make and we will have them back at the shop by 5pm.  Calmart and Palisades Deli are nearby for you to choose your own delicious picnic lunch, and we'll let you in on the best winery picnic areas.  As well, La Prima Pizza and Solbar are two places on your route to grab a bite.

 

 

 

The ultra-comfortable bikes you will be riding - Jamis Hudson 3.0's, Electra Townie 8-Speed Cruisers, or for one who is looking for a fit similar to a road commuter, the 27-speed Cannondale Quick 2s - are selected to fit to you well and are equipped with a map and insulated rear rack bag that will hold your personal gear and food.  We also have sportier hybrids, and some opt for road bikes that are available as well for an additional fee. Please inquire about these upon making your reservation if so desired.

Most or our guests visit 3 or 4 wineries during their day and are out for between 4 and 5 hours.  The route we create for you is typically between 8 and 18 miles (or more if so desired), and mostly on flat quiet roads around Calistoga.

Riders participating in the Cool Wine Tour must be at least 21.  Advance reservations recommended. Credit card number or pre-payment are required to hold reservation (48 our cancellation period).  Please call us at 707-942-9687 to reserve your spot or reserve via e-mail through our bike rental page .

 A final note . . .   

                 

At our shop, we are big advocates of responsible tasting and recommend you sip, suck, swirl, and - spit when you taste wine. Should the heat of the day get to you anyway, you can give us a call, and we will pick you and your bike up wherever you may be. We want you to have a fun and safe experience.

      It's not a waste . . .
                              
   BECAUSE YOU'RE WORTH IT!
