WEEKEND WINE PACKAGES

 

 

Our Bike to the Vineyards tours are a fully supported weekend bicycle experience.  You will have the option of riding to the vineyards if you want a full day of cycling, or riding in the van closer to the wineries, then hopping on your bike as you tour through the beautiful countryside in El Dorado, Placer and Amador counties.  Enjoy a delicious catered picnic lunch at one of the wineries, while taking in the fresh air and scenic views that make the gold country an experience for all your senses.  Riders will be shuttled back to the hotel after our last tasting. 

 

These two night, three day packages are the perfect weekend getaway for the cyclist looking to escape the hassles of city cycling.  Pricing includes two nights lodging with breakfast,  a wonderful welcome dinner on the first night, one full day of supported cycling through local vineyards with a catered lunch, snacks, bicycle rental/helmet for two days, complimentary bottle of wine, and shuttle transportation to and from the vineyard areas as necessary.   You will be on your own for the second day of cycling to do your own exploring.  Wine tasting fees are not included in package.

 

$549.00 per person, based on double occupancy.

 

Our region is home to more than 20 award-winning wineries. We have some of the oldest productive grapevines surviving prohibition in California.  Hundreds of microclimates from 1,200 to 3,500 feet nuture nearly 50 varieties of grapes, and boast dozens of artisan winemakers with a passion for creating wines.   Named by Frommer’s as one of the “Up and Coming Places to Visit in 2006” and recently gushed over by the New York Times and Wine Spectator, the region is awash in rustic charm and rural solitude that has captured the attention of Sunset Magazine 2010 Fall Getaways issue,  and the Tour and Tasting Summer/Fall 2011 edition.
