Personal Wine Tour Guide: 
This is the best option for a more exclusive private tour. For not much more than a standard chauffeur, you can hire a personal wine guide service that arranges your tour and drives you in a luxury vehicle. All of the following companies specialize in the Napa and Sonoma County wine regions. They arrange a custom wine tasting day after speaking to you about your tastes and preferences.
