If you have already planned your day and just need a driver to keep you safe, take advantage of our driving service that is currently trending throughout wine country. YOU provide the vehicle, WE provide the driver and you save money. Book a minimum of six hours, pay cash and the total is only $365.00. Each additional hour is $30.00. All fees and taxes are included. Only driver gratuity is additional. Compare that to the car companies that charge upwards of $80.00 per hour depending on the size of your party and also charge a fuel fee.
If you are planning a quick takeout lunch stop our driver would be happy to make that stop for you while you relax at a winery. If your party is larger than nine people contact us for a quote.
If you would prefer that Napa Driving Service plan a great day for you, just pick from one of the Personalized Tours below and your work is done. We do all the planning and make all the reservations.
Historical Tour – Your customized tour will include three/four wineries each day that helped to put Napa and Sonoma on the wine country map. Each stop will include historic narratives from winery staff.
These may include but are not limited to Robert Mondavi, Grgich Hills, Stags’ Leap, Charles Krug, Chateau Montelena, Domaine Carneros, Beringer, Sterling and Domaine Chandon in Napa. Buena Vista, Sebastiani, St Francis, Kunde Estate, Gloria Ferrer, Benziger, Gundlach Bundshu, and Cline Cellars in Sonoma
Backroads Tour – The exact opposite of the Historical Tour. Your customized tour will include three/four wineries each day that are off the beaten path. It’s unlikely you have heard of any of these wineries and even less likely you would have found them on your own. Owner Dennis McClintick has spent twenty of his fifty years in wine country developing relationships with some of the most secret and exclusive wineries in wine country and he can open that door for you. They have small parking lots and huge views. Your host may very well be the owner and/or winemaker. These are the ones you will tell your friends about, not the “Amusement Park Wineries”.
Blended Tour – Like combining several different grape varietals to come up with an amazing blended wine, take a page from each of the tours above. Your customized tour will include wineries from both the Historical Tour and the Back-Roads Tour.
Each Customized Tour is $475.00. (That’s the total price, not per person) if you provide the vehicle and pay cash. It is designed for an eight hour day. Circumstances that arise that are out of our driver’s control (Heavy traffic, inclement weather, or deviation from the planned tour at the guests insistence) that extend the tour beyond the planned eight hours will be charged in addition to the package price at our normal hourly rate in quarter hour increments. Your tour is customized for your party, you will not be paired together with strangers! As with all our tours if you are planning a quick takeout lunch stop our driver would be happy to make that stop for you while you relax at a winery. The package tour fees do not include tasting fees or lunch.
Tell Us What You Want Tour – Looking for something not included in our Personalized Tours? Then tell us what you want. All Sparkling? All Cabernet? All Micro-breweries? Remember our promise: If you want it or need it, we will do it or get it.
We hired Napa Driving Services for a backroads tour and we were not disappointed! Dennis took great care of us in... planning the full itinerary and taking us to vineyards we would not have otherwise found. We were in Napa during harvest season and ended up getting a spontaneous behind the scenes tour of the wine making process at one of the vineyards which was amazing. Dennis guided us on where to plan lunch so that we had food in our stomachs while enjoying our wine tasting. Marshall was our driver and he too took great care of us getting us from place to place on time and with a smile on his face. His goal was to make sure we were happy with our experience and we were. We highly recommend Napa Driving Services.read more

After a brief phone call with Dennis, he picked multiple wineries that were better than I could have ever dreamed! The... flavors of 2/3 of the wineries were spot on for our palates and the the third was rich in history & very interesting.

My group of six just wrapped a four day trip to Napa and while the wine was great, Dennis was one of the best parts of... our time there.Dennis was always on time (early too!) and was an excellent source of information about all things Napa. From stories about his short stint as a plum harvester to advice on what to avoid and what couldn't be missed, Dennis delivered.We felt safe and were always on time to each of our scheduled tastings. He also did little things like making sure the car was sufficiently in the shade while waiting, picking up lunches during down time, and he even lent us tape and packing materials for wine that we shipped home.It all added up to an awesome experience and made for an extremely smooth and worry-free vacation. We'd definitely recommend Dennis and Napa Driving Services and will be enlisting their help for our next trip!read more
I can’t say enough good things about Dennis and Napa Driving Services. My daughter and I decided to visit Napa to... celebrate our college graduations, and I was looking for someone who was knowledgeable about Napa and could drive us around. Dennis is that and so much more. He was quick to respond when I asked for a quote, and he did a wonderful job keeping in touch with me as he planned our tour. We visited four wineries, plus had lunch at Farm Meadow, and Dennis made all of the arrangements. The only thing I had to worry about was meeting him outside our hotel on the morning of our tour. Dennis is the consummate professional, and I love that he’s a veteran (as am I). I highly recommend Dennis and his driving service when you visit Napa. You will be glad you chose him!read more
