The Tauck Difference

This was our 4th Tauck trip and we had a blast! Other tours have more history, culture, and art, but it is hard to beat this tour for sheer fun, great food, and of course, great wine. We went at the ideal time of year. They were picking the grapes while we were there and the weather was perfect. We had a wonderful tour director and coach driver. Our most memorable moments included the catamaran cruise on San Francisco Bay, the Hands On Gourmet interactive culinary experience, lunch in a barrel cave at Benziger Family Winery, the wine blending competition, and lunch at the Culinary Institute of America.
