Napa Valley Wine Country Tours welcomes the America Cup! San Francisco will be hosting the event
on September 7 to 22, 2013. Our silicon son, Larry Ellison of the Oracle Racing team will be competing on the "Challenger", USA-17,
for the coveted crown. The boat is said to sail 3 times the speed of wind, how is that possible? Regattas will lead us into the final
race so expect some incredible action in the San Francisco Bay over the next year. For a break from the wind, call us to arrange a
Napa wine tour or Sonoma wine tour. How about a scenic tour of the redwoods and our beautiful coastline.
