El Dorado Wine tours

Discover The Hidden Treasures of El Dorado's Wine Region

Discover where it all began

One of the most under-rated and yet outstanding regions of California, El Dorado offers some incredible gems that are still yet to be more widely recognized. This is undoubtably a boutique wine region that is one of the oldest in California dating back to the early 1800’s. Maybe not as well known as other regions, but El Dorado is certainly one of California’s best kept secrets! Just like the gold of yesteryear, great bounties of wine still remain undiscovered in the heart of California’s gold country… and we can’t wait to show you these hidden treasures. 

What To Expect

From the majestic Sierra Nevada mountains to the stunning rolling hillsides of El Dorado, this county offers a unique blend of breathtaking beauty and exceptional wines. Experience some of our favorite wineries in the region, meet passionate vintners and learn about the techniques used to produce these fantastic wines. The best part about this wine tour is that it is right on our doorstep! This day is really the perfect way to explore wine, history and the origins of the California wine industry.

We love to take you to our favourite wineries the valley has to offer. A blend of boutique and the heavy hitters.

Knowledgable Guides

El Dorado Wine Tour Itinerary

This tour is slightly different that we build in time for a glass at each winery before or after your tasting. The 49er Trail is the perfect destination for wine lovers and adventure seekers alike. Discover the hidden gems of this original and thriving wine industry, where over 40 wineries offer outstanding wines and unique tasting experiences. Scenic views of the Sierra Foothills and just a short drive from downtown Sacramento where you can uncover your own treasure in rural California’s gold country

Stop #1 - The journey begins

We are happy to come and collect you from your house or hotel in the Sacramento area. If you live slightly outside then we are happy to make arrangements within reason and at our discretion. We can always arrange a further-a-field pick up for a small fee. Wherever we start... This is where the perfect day begins!

Stop #2 - A step back in time

As we arrive in the quiet town of Placerville, the history is abundant. A quaint piece of the past unfolds as the start of our tour. We enjoy a walk through the main street to one of our first wineries of the day. Located only a couple of miles from where gold was first discovered, new treasures await.

Stop #3 - The Picnic by the pond

As always, we provide a delicious light lunch to keep you going and your palates fresh! After picking up our lunch to go, a wonderful picnic area awaits us at El Dorado's premier winery. Following this, we will be staying on for our second tasting here and discovering the delights of the hills.

Stop #4 - The last of the summer wine

We love rounding off the day at a place to soak in the sun with a view. As the afternoon continues, this is where it all comes together. The reflection of the different wine making styles, the enjoyment of the moment and the knowledge that you are having a wonderful time. It is the perfect time to reflect on the day with your friends and family who have joined you, or just to continue the laughter and enjoyment of the day.

Stop # 5 - The Jounrey Home

Having enjoyed all the fantastic new wines on your journey, it's time to take these treasures and memories home. This is also where the best value of the day comes in. Your chariot awaits with no chance of a D.U.I! No mix ups getting lost, in fact, no worries at all! The ride back is often either filled with laughter, singing and chatter of all the great wines we enjoyed, or the ideal time for a light snooze with the sun on your face as we ferry you home. Actually... often both! We will get you back safe and sound with a ton of great memories and hopefully a few souvenirs too. If you have dinner reservations then we will also be happy to drop you off at the restaurant. Just make sure to let us know in advance.

Our group of gals had an amazing day out in Sonoma together. We were already there for the weekend but Paul was more than happy to pick us up from our house rental. I have been wine tasting in Sonoma a few times before and already know where we wanted to go. I just simply told Paul and he took care of the rest! No hassle, no fuss. We all had a super fun day out and loved the tour. This is definitely the guy you want!!!

Paul, the owner and our guide, was absolutely amazing. He went above and beyond to make sure our tour went without a hitch. If you’re looking to have a great day in Napa Valley and enjoy some amazing wine look no further.

What a great way to explore California’s wine country from Sacramento! My wife and I had been exploring the northern part of the state as we are from San Diego, when we thought about doing some wine tasting. After a quick search we found NapSac Wine Tours and gave them a call. We spoke with Paul (the owner) who was very friendly and really seemed to know the area. He arranged our tour for us and picked us up from where we were staying. Having a driver that knows the area and the best places to go was a huge help! I think we would have just ended up at the biggest tour trap wineries if we hadn’t booked through him. But instead we were treated to a super relaxing private tour and some exceptional wineries. Paul is a great guide and you can tell he loves what he does. Next time we are up this way, we will definitely be giving him a call. Thanks Paul!

We loved our wine tour with Paul. He took care of everything, making the experience smooth and easy….it was just as relaxing, if not more so, than a day at the spa, but with exceptional wine and gorgeous views. I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the finest that Napa has to offer.

WOW! What can I say? A couple of friends and I were stuck in Sacramento for an old friends birthday. One of the girls who loves wine a little more than us convinced us to go wine tasting for they day and boy am I glad we went! Paul took care of everything and made sure we all had such a good time. The wines were surprisingly good. I didn’t even know that El Dorado had wineries but apparently they make some pretty good wine too hahahaha. Can’t recommend NapSac enough. If you ever get stuck in Sacramento, call Paul for the perfect escape!
Paul was great from start to finish. We had never been to Napa before and wanted to avoid large bus tours and crowded wineries. Paul put together a great plan for the day and we didn't have to worry about anything. We had originally planned to go on a different weekend, but had to cancel last minute. He rescheduled everything and was very understanding. We will definitely be going back and doing a Sonoma tour with Paul hopefully sometime later this year or next spring. Would highly recommend NapSac Wine Tours if you are looking for a very personalized experience so you can enjoy the day tasting great wine without having to worry about anything else.

Paul was phenomenal. He set up a great tour for us by doing a phone screening prior to our tour. The places he chose based off of what we wanted was spot on. He was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and Napa Valley. Since it was our first time there it was nice to have someone set everything up and take us everywhere, all we had to do was show up. A huge thank you to Napsac wine tours for making our day special.

Our decision to choose Napsac for our wine tour was easy once we realized the expertise of the owner Paul. The day’s adventure we embarked upon was efficiently planned and smoothly executed. Paul is a dashing host and very well connected to the local wineries. The planning was effortless, and made our trip so much less stressful to be able to rely on a well connected, trusted company. Every stop on the tour was a new experience, delicious wines, views, relaxing, and worthy of a visit and purchase for your collection of quality wines from the region. Of all the places we went, Round Pond estste winery stood out as a favorite. We had a blast with the other guests, and in the van enjoyed the conversation and even some of Paul’s jokes. I absolutely recommend NapSac wine tours, if you’re in the area, do not miss out. I only wish we lived close by to have the opportunity to enjoy these beautiful places and the impeccable wines more often. Cheers.

We had a terrific time on our tour. Paul was knowledgeable and affable and struck a terrific balance of being involved and informative while still giving us space to enjoy the experience. Great selection of wineries. Fun experience. I highly recommend NapSac Wine Tours.

My wife and I cannot recommend NapSac Wine Tours enough! We had an amazing experience. Paul and his team took care of the transportation from Sac to Napa, the reservations at 3 amazing wineries, lunch, and transportation back home. My wife and I just sat back, relaxed, and enjoyed the amazing wine & food. Napa is not a place you can simply uber around and walk into wineries so we are thankful we had Paul take care of the planning / reservations. Further, Paul is more than simply a driver to get you there, he is very knowledgeable about wine and the specific wineries of Napa. We are so thankful we found NapSac Wine Tours and look forward to booking with them in the future.
