Book A Driver For Other Functions

Your wine driver is also bookable for dinners and special events aside from wine touring, such as concerts, weddings, private parties, dances, airport runs, event shuttle services, and other school/public/private events.

We work with van rental companies – you rent the vehicle online and our drivers will take care of the rest. Don’t hesitate to call and ask, “Hey, can we book a driver for…?” 

Why A Destination Driver?

Our private designated driver service is an excellent alternative to more expensive limousine services and overpriced group shuttle services, group tours, wine bus tours, wine train tours and wine trolley tours that lump you in with other visitors you don’t know and then dictate where you can go and when!

We take you anywhere, anytime, whether it is on the Napa Sonoma wineries list or not. 

Our drivers take you to the wineries that you want to visit because all of our tours are customized to your group, based on the types of wines you like and the type of experience you want to have – boutique winery, large commercial winery, barrel tasting, etc.

We provide an unparalleled concierge level personalized experience at a more affordable price! Plus many of the best wineries no longer allow Napa Sonoma limo wine tours or buses.

So whether you’re looking for a Sonoma Driver, a Napa Driver or both, choose Destination Drivers private hospitality, luxury and 5-star service – a private wine tasting tour in your own vehicle with your friends is the best way to enjoy California Wine Country

Spectacular Experience in Napa

Destination Drivers not only met, but exceeded, our expectations. Our driver, Michael Giangreco, provided us with a sensational itinerary for wine tastings in Napa and Sonoma. His knowledge of the area and the wineries was outstanding. He took us to some hidden gems, and we avoided the tourist trap locations. He was always on time and kept us on schedule without feeling rushed. When booking Napa or Sonoma trips with Destination Drivers, we highly recommend requesting Michael.

Spectacular Experience in Napa

We had a wonderful time on a beautiful fall day in Sonoma wine country. We had the good fortune to have Joey as our driver and assistant. Joey was extremely professional and pleasant and worked to make sure we were well cared for. He was especially kind to our Scottish terrier, Isabel, and walked her while we tasted wine. She adored him because he brought treats for her as well as us! It was so nice to have someone tote our picnic lunch and supplies and get us to each stop safely. When Isabel got bored or we were ready to leave I would just text Joey and he would appear like magic and handle everything. People around us were envious! We have used Destination Drivers many times and I highly recommend them!

Destination Drivers is a MUST for your wine weekend!

Not only was Destination Drivers a MUST for our weekend wine tours, but David was the best driver! So knowledgeable, kind, helpful, and fun! He took care of us, making sure we had snacks and drinks outside of wine, and also kept us on track for our scheduled tour times. I would highly recommend for anyone visiting and will definitely be using Destination Drivers in our next wine weekend!

Excellent Service For Winery Visits

My husband and I had the best experience! The service and experience was above and beyond what we could have imagined. From start to finish, David was courteous, friendly, and informative. He had water and snacks ready for us throughout the day which was key! I would recommend this service to anyone in the Sonoma or Napa area and I wish there were more businesses like this in other cities! Thank you again, David!

Wonderful service at a great price!

We spent 2 days with Henry as our driver in Sonoma and had a wonderful experience. Henry was kind, punctual and kept us on time for our appointments. It was our first time in the area, so he was able to teach us about the area and give us a few tips on where to go next time we visit. We look forward to using this service again and hope to have Henry as our driver! We highly recommend!
