Healdsburg Wine Tour, specifically Sid Sadeghian, was outstanding in every respect. Sid provided a well-crafted itinerary in advance and interacted with us to ensure the fullest experience. At every turn, Sid looked for opportunities to focus our valuable time on the wine touring experience, the very best, small wineries and ensured private wine tastings that provided valuable information and were extremely educational, The tour Sid designed was chocked full of vineyards and wineries that that most people don't get the opportunity to visit, where the wine makers and managers honed in on the differences between the grapes, the wines, how they're made, and the process of tasting the wines. The Healdsburg Wine Tour process was flexible, considerate, and customizable, and addressed our interests completely. We will definitely return to Sonoma and Healdsburg Wine Tour, and place ourselves in Sid's experienced hands!

Sid was a truly unique and wonderful host/tour guide! He is incredibly knowledgeable about the area and seems to know and be loved by everyone. We requested Sid set our agenda and I was so glad he did! We had such exclusive and intimate tastings, I could not imagine a better tour! Thank you very much to Healdsburg Wine Tour for a fantastic Saturday.

My husband & I took a trip to wine country for our anniversary. A few friends who had been before me suggested a tour was the way to go. Sid did not disappoint. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the region. He selected great wineries for us to visit that we would have never found on our own. I could not have planned anything that compared to the wonderful day we had. Highly recommend!

Sid did an amazing job! He picked us up in Napa and brought us to 3 Healdsburg wineries (Palmeri, Lambert Bridge, and Williams Selyem). He had more planned for us but we ran out of time. The drive was beautiful, our experience at each winery was personalized and in a quaint setting, and we learned a lot from the staff/wine-makers. Highly recommend!!

Our day of visiting wineries with Sid was truly a first class experience. I contacted Sid only a week before our visit to Healdsburg, and he put together a customized day for the two of us. This was definitely more than simply being driven to tasting rooms. He contacted each winery in advance and set up our visits. We began with a private tasting in noted vintner's home (where we had a great chat with the wife of the vitner), then moved on to a series of private tastings, including one winery that normally has a wait list for visits. We felt very pampered. Sid knows his stuff and is clearly well-respected by the community. He is more than willing to tailor your day to your preferences. While it is easy to visit places on your own in the Healdsburg area, you get a truly special experience with Sid. I look forward to doing it again soon.

We spent the first of our 2 days in Sonoma, with Sid touring several wineries. We selected a couple of the wineries and let Sid select the others. It was a great day. Sid is extremely knowledgeable of the area, and enjoyable to talk to. Like the other reviews, we got great sandwiches from Dry Creek (call that morning to order). The tour was a great way to get oriented to the area...highly recommend!

Many thanks to Sid for helping to create a truly unique and wonderful visit to wine country! He expertly planned and hosted two days of tastings at beautiful locations, where we were treated to wonderful hospitality and delicious wines, sometimes with the wine makers themselves. His unique relationships, knowledge of producers, and unflappable demeanor helped to create a very special experience!

We were spoiled to have Sid guide us through our first day in wine country. He arranged our full itinerary - four stops that showed the wonderful variety of wineries and vineyards in Alexander Valley. We loved meeting the winemakers (one in his own home!) and the private attention we received at every spot. It is so nice to be able to walk right in, have a spot ready for you with snacks and food pairings, and someone to take the time to personally talk about the wine...and not worry about tasting fees or standing at the counter and working/waiting for the tasting room staff's attention. We know we could have never received this level of personal attention without his connections. We toured in a clean and comfortable Escalade and the lunch he arranged at Jimtown was perfect. Sid also made wonderful recommendations for meals and things to do over the rest of our trip. He was a wonderful tour guide and we know we will be back!

Sid gave us the most special and personalized trip to Sonoma wine country that we ever could have imagined. Each winery was beautiful and had a different way of making their wine. We are still talking about this experience with our friends and enjoying the spectacular wines that we purchased. Sid was awesome, his knowledge and courtesy were unbelievable.


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  HEATHER A
Our guide, Patricia, was lovely, knowledgeable and made our day effortless and enjoyable. Sid created a unique itinerary for us including wineries we requested specifically and ones he recommended. The small wineries he recommended were absolute jewels and he arranged for us to meet the winemakers which was a great personal experience. The picnic lunch from Jimtown Store was fun and delicous. Highly recommend and can't wait to return and plan another day tour with Healdsburg Wne tour!

What a great tour!!!! Can't begin to explain the wonderful experience we had. Tom our tour guide was the best!!!! Palmeri!


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  WILSCHRI
What a great experience! Our guide, Patricia, was very knowledgeable. Our itinerary was perfect for us. We had several different types of experiences. We thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the personal nature of meeting winemakers.


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  JRRHOADE
Be sure to tell Sid what kind of experience you hope to have with your wine tastings, because he clearly is a master at creating a customized experience. This is far more than a designated driver; this is an inside look at some of the best places you will never find without him. It's an hourly charge so be aware of what you are asking, but you will get what you pay for here. This was our second visit to Healdsburg and Sid's private tour was hands down the highlight of both visits to the area. You will meet winemakers and taste some of the best possible wines available.

My fiancee and I did this tour while in the area before a wedding, and it was honestly amazing. For a few hours, you get your own car, and they make sure to set you up for some unique experiences, walkarounds, meals, and 1 on 1's with winemakers, not to mention your winery tour and tasting fees are covered. Our driver, Carole, was incredibly sweet and even took us to a few additional spots just because! Was well worth it if in the area!

Sid was amazing. He knew all the out of the way wineries with amazing wines. Met several winemakers along the way. Never felt rushed always accommodating with our schedule. Great lunch pick up with wonderful picnic location. Thank for exceeding all our expectations today with a beautiful day filled with wine. You are the best!!!

We had an outstanding 2 days with Sid in early July. Having visited the area several times before on our own, we were happy to have him arrange an itinerary that included many places we had never been to before. Everything about the experience was relaxed and easy--and the service and tastings we had at each location far exceeded those when we ventured on our own to tasting rooms. Highly recommend!

Me and my girlfriend travelled from Sweden to California in July - August 2014. Prior to the trip we searched for wine tours and found Healdsburg Wine Tours.

We got friendly help from the first contact and we were asked if we had special requests and were also given recommendations on how to make the most of our tour.

We drove to Sonoma from SF and were picked up by our guide Joe who drove us towards Healdsburg and our first stop.

A great start at a sustainable winery in Alexander Valley.

Moving on to an even better winery where we were greeted by a fantastic couple in their garden. We spent three hours tasting wine and eating fantastic food made by the the couple.

The tour provided by Healdsburg Wine Tours and our guide Joe was perfect!

From the service before the tour, the pick up at our hotel, the knowledge about wines and the area we were in, the friendliness and the genuine aim to give us the best possible experience.

We continued our road trip down Highway 1 to San Diego before going back to Sweden. When summarizing our California trip the wine tour was one of the very highlights we will always remember.

Thank you Healdsburg Wine Tours, thank you Sid and thank you Joe!

Take care!

Martin and Felicia, Stockholm, Sweden

For our first visit to Sonoma County we wanted to find someone to help us get our feet wet, maybe show us a few wineries off the beaten path. trip Advisor lead us to Healdsburg Wine Tour, which was soon validated by friends who had also toured with Sid.

Easily the best decision of the trip. We could have visited many wineries on our own, but Sid arranged visits that included walks around the properties and facilities (wine in hand), trying the still maturing Chardonnay straight from the vat ... Sitting poolside at the top of a mountain surrounded by vineyards, and extremely attentive service everywhere we went.

Sid also learned we liked Zinfandels and immediately changed the itinerary to fit our tastes.

Perhaps best of all, he was around when we had questions or needed direction, but gave us space in each winery and time enough alone to enjoy each other's company. Very much the perfect host.

I have a tendency to caveat recommendations, but in this case we can say with no hesitation that trusting in Sid and Healdsburg wine tours will make your time in Sonoma a better experience.

We had a great time on our tour with Sid. Our first stop was Medlock Ames where we were given a wonderful tour of the vineyard's gardens by Kevin as well as a tour of the winery. We finished with an extensive wine tasting. We were impressed with the vineyard and ended up ordering some of their wines and also delicious jams to be sent home. Our last stop was at William Seleym vineyards where we met with Kim who also gave us a wonderful tour and wine tasting of their award winning wines. It was the highlight of our trip to Sonoma! And might I add we had a box lunch from Jimtown that was absolutely so delicious we went back on our own the next day to have their pulled pork sandwich and also their delicious Reuben sandwich. Whatever you do in Sonoma county, just make sure you stop there! Sid was very courteous and attentive to our needs! No worry with drinking and driving when you have Sid taking care of you. He was able to get us into the vineyards we wanted to visit on our own private tours! Definitely worth it!

Picture this; busy kids, two working parents, a house in constant motion. I grab a few minutes with my wife as we pass at the front door. We get very little time to congratulate each other on a job well done.

Then picture this; getting a weekend sitter, not planning a thing and treating yourself to Healdsburg Wine Tour.

All you do is show up; the touring car was a great classic, we just melted into the leather seats and let the world slow down. Our guide, Tom, was low key and having grown up in Healdsburg, had a few interesting anecdotes about life there.

This company has access to some very special vineyards. At one stunning vineyard, my wife and I wandered between rows of vines sipping a glass and learning about organic growing techniques. The vineyard employee hinted that Healdsburg Wine Tour may have access to experiences that other tour operators do not.

After a couple of tastings, my wife and I had a picnic on a hill overlooking vines in every direction. After lunch, we had a couple of more tastings and made our way back to the hotel. Relaxed, well fed and a couple of interesting bottles of wine in hand.

This kind of slowing down and treating ourselves is rare and worth every penny.

As a footnote, I left my cell phone at one of the vineyards and when we were at the coast the next day, the staff from Healdsburg Wine Tour tracked it down and it was waiting for us that night at the hotel, fully charged.

We are already planning next year

What an amazing experience! Syd is the ultimate tour guide and provided us with a fun and unique glimpse into the world of wine making. One of the best trips I've ever taken! Thank you Syd!

Sid was easy going and listened to what we wanted. He was fun and knowledgable and took us to some great wineries!


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  CHINAMPAS
Healdsburg Wine Tours provides the ultimate wine tasting experience in Sonoma. Sid, our host, set up private tastings in several unique wineries each day. The wine was wonderful, and the privacy made the experience truly special. Sid was a pleasure to be around, and I highly recommend him to anyone planning a trip to Sonoma.


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  FOODYMON
Sid is a true professional. Two great days of wine tasting! Sid goes to great care to connect you with small, high quality wineries that you would otherwise never hear about. Can't say enough good things about Sid and the experience.


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  DEBRA L
This is our second time with HWT. Very professional, easy-going. Provided amazing, unique experiences. I would highly recommend them!


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  JOY T
I have used Healdsburg Wine Tour more times than I count. They always deliver a best-in-class tour with different places and unforgettable experiences. Every year, we come back for my birthday with my best friends. They remember us by name and never disappoint. My only fear in writing this review is that they'll get too popular and I'll have to worry about being able to get them for my next wine country event!

I read many reviews of this company for wine tours. My husband and I visited on Valentine's Day. Joe was our tour guide and he was wonderful! He was so warm, friendly and very knowledgeable of the area and the owners of the wineries. We had a fun day with him. He took us to 3 wineries based on our preferences and chose one for us that we loved at the end of our day. He took time to get to know us and ensure we were having a great day. It was so nice to visit the wineries, sample so many elegant wines and not worry about driving. The company recommended that we choose a boxed lunch from Jimtown general store and had a picnic lunch at one of the wineries - Perfect! We will definitely choose Healdsburg Wine Tours again when we come back to visit. Ask for Joe and know you'll have a memorable experience and a great time!

The day we spent with Sid on the Sanoma wine tour was the high light of our west coast trip. We felt like royalty being shown the intimate details of several wineries. Would highly recommend this tour.


Five Star Trip Advisor Rating  /  JANET S
We booked a tour with Sid and simply cannot say enough good things about the tour and about Sid. We had the most delightful day. We toured smaller "boutique" wineries that we would not have known about if it were not for this tour. The people at the wineries he chose were friendly and seemed happy to have us there. They were also passionate about their work, and that always makes for interesting discussion and learning. Sid's customer service is incredible. We felt like VIPs the entire day. We highly recommend Sid and this service. You will not be disappointed.
