Discover more of the Lake Tahoe region than the lake itself on this day trip to El Dorado wine region, just west of South Lake Tahoe in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. With a knowledgeable wine guide, you’ll visit six area wineries, known for their welcoming and rustic atmospheres. Plus, stop by Boa Vista, one of the region’s many fruit orchards, and enjoy an alfresco lunch amid towering oak trees. Round-trip transportation from South Lake Tahoe is included.

Tour operator was great. Nice views great lunch. Wish we had a little more time at each place. Felt a little rushed.

Enjoyed our tour of wine country. We visited four different wineries, each with a unique flair and history. Guide was both knowledgeable and personal. Learned many historic facts about South Lake Tahoe and surrounding counties. Don’t miss out on this tour! Ask for Snowshoe John as your guide. You’ll be glad you did. Many varieties of wine available for sampling and purchasing.

Snowshoe John is absolutely fabulous. His knowledge of the area and the history made the bus ride even more enjoyable. Lunch was incredibly good and no where near any box lunch level. The wineries were wonderful, especially Chateau Davall. My future daughter-in-law and I enjoyed every minute and are enjoying all our purchases!

This was so much fun and I highly recommend it for first time and returning visitors. Again, Snowshoe John was our host and he was entertaining and informative. Jodar was a wonderful winery with great wines, and Mitch the Wine Guy was very fun! Thanks, Suzanne and Vicki

The scenery was gorgeous and the weather perfect for a day in the wine country. Our guide, Snowshoe John, was very knowledgeable about the area and entertaining as well. Highly recommended!

Great trip ! After a beautiful informative drive you arrive in wine country. Everyone at all the wineries were super nice and a lot of fun. Enjoyed a great lunch at the third winery. After lunch you were given the option to either visit a another winery or visit a craft brewery which we chose to do. Fun way to spend a day !
