Try Murphy's in the Gold Country (northern CA)....about 15 wineries in the area and most do not charge a fee.....Also the Jackson area.

I've been on winery tours all around California, Oregon and even in New Zealand. I've enjoyed the tours learning how wine and champagne is made in different places/wineries but agree the best part is the tasting.

Was touring the wineries since I was 13 :) Parents took us to many of wineries around Hungary, especially around Balaton. When I was 15, a summer school I attened with my sister took us to a place called Valley of the Beautiful women in northern Hungary. Over 40 wineries next door to one another. Cave after cave after cave and lots of wine. Here in the states I took my fiance to his first winery somewhere out in Maryland on our way to DC. We've been touring CA wineries ever since, from San Diego (Witchucreek Winery is my favorite) to Humbdolt and loads in between. Santa Cruz has some really good wines :) Thomas Fogarty. And in San Martin Clos LaChance. Sad part about touring wineries and tasting is that the majority of the cost a tasting fee. $5 and up. Yeesh. While tasting wine in Oregon, we tasted for free and bought loads of wine. :)

Yes, I was studying abroad in Tuscany at the time, and they took us for our Culture class. Needless to say, I got an A in the wine section of my class!

I've never been to one, but at some point I'd like to visit Wollersheim husband works with the son of one of the owners, so it'd be neat to see it. I guess living in Wisconsin, brewery tours seem to be more popular.

yes at the Sandeman bodega in Jerez, Spain. It was lovely and we got a detailed tour on how the sherry was made & had a tasting at the end.

I've taken winery tours since the mid 60's when my parents would drag me to the wineries of Napa Valley when friends and family visited the area. I feel so fortunate now that I was able to see the classic Christian Brothers winery (now the CIA (Culinary Institute of America)) and Beringer when they were smaller less busy. When I turned 21 I started visiting wineries myself and taking my friends along. My favorite winery tour was the Mondavi tour because they always took you from the vineyards through to the tasting room and touched on all aspects of wine tasting. These days I skip the tours and head straight for the tasting room. I know all about the process, I just want to taste the results.

For my honeymoon, we actually stayed at a winery in Tuscany (Chianti) where they grew olives (for olive oil) and Sangiovese grapes for wine. Toward the end of our stay, they took us on a tour of their wine-making process and then gave us a wonderful free tasting. It was seriously the best thing ever.

I have, mostly in the Finger Lakes region. Unfortunately I was always under 21 when my parents dragged me on these tours, so they were pretty lame for me. But I'd really enjoy going on a tour now! I've also toured a Scotch distillery (Glenlivet in Scotland) and a microbrewery.

Is this Eberle Winery?? It looks just like it with the underground cave facilities! I love touring wineries when possible, because the process is never precisely the same at each one and I love learning about the things that make them unique.

Absolutely.... One of my favorites was Silverado Vineyards. Full flight tasting with the wine maker too. Wonderful place!
