Destination Drivers is the original designated driver service, providing 5-Star luxury hospitality in California Wine Country since 2010. With seven operations statewide, we conduct thousands of wine country tours every year giving us an extensive knowledge of the wineries in our service areas as well as travel routes, road construction, dining options, tourist highlights and more. Hire one of our drivers for your next wine country tour and let us help you plan your itinerary!


In the picturesque expanse of California’s wine country, how you explore is as crucial as what you explore. With Destination Drivers, your journey through the rolling vineyards is designed to be seamless, personalized, and immersive, setting us distinctly apart from the rest. Let’s explore why our approach to discovering the wine country’s treasures offers a far richer experience compared to the alternatives.

The Personal Touch in Every Journey

When embarking on a wine tour, the allure of the scenery is just as important as the taste of the wine. In a limousine or bus, the experience of the landscape is often marred by dark tinted windows and the physical discomfort of navigating in and out of such vehicles. Moreover, the supposed luxury of a limo ride pales in comparison to the comfort and familiarity of your own vehicle, which becomes a key component of our service.

Cost-Effectiveness Without Compromise

Elegance and exclusivity should not come at an exorbitant cost. While a limousine or bus tour through the wine country can cost 2 to 3 times more than our services, Destination Drivers provides a superior and more intimate experience without the hefty price tag. Furthermore, we believe in transparent pricing, steering clear of the hefty itinerary planning fees that are often hidden in the costs of other companies’ tours.


Convenience and Customization at Its Core

The essence of a truly personalized wine tour lies not only in the destinations but in the journey itself. Unlike group tours with centralized meeting points that leave you to fend for yourself at the end of the day, Destination Drivers ensures a hassle-free experience by picking you up and dropping you off at your home or hotel. This level of personalized service extends to our itinerary planning, where we curate tours based on your unique interests and desires, rather than pushing a predefined selection of wineries.

A Journey Tailored to Your Taste

The integrity of your wine country exploration is paramount to us. While some companies may guide (push) you towards certain wineries from which they receive kickbacks, our recommendations are solely influenced by your preferences and our expertise. This approach guarantees an authentic experience, allowing you to uncover the true gems of California’s wine regions through a tour customized entirely around your tastes.
