East Bay Winery Bike Tours is a registered LLC offering San Francisco and East Bay visitors a local taste of great wine without the hassle and expense of renting a car. Tour routes give visitors an inside look at “boutique wineries”, that is, wineries with small production that embody the passion of the winemaker.
EBWBT is a green way to explore the return to traditional, urban wine making. Many talented winemakers now crush, blend and age in urban warehouses the way they did before the industry moved to vineyards in Napa and elsewhere in Northern California.
