Tahoe Tastings and the Golden Rose are proud to bring our guests on not only a tour of Lake Tahoe, but also a tour through Northern California wineries!

Step aboard the vintage Golden Rose, a 1953 Chris Craft Venetian Water Taxi, with Lake Tahoe’s premier wine tasting tour company, operating out of South Lake Tahoe, California. Sit back, relax and take in the beauty of the lake while sipping on exquisite wines hand chosen for your enjoyment.

On your wine tasting tour from South Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay, you will start with a glass of bubbly to begin your journey. Next, you will taste 8 different wines, including both whites and reds. You will be tasting wines from the world-famous Napa Valley wine country but also wines from Placer, Nevada, Amador, El Dorado, Monterrey and Yolo counties as well as the Central Valley. The wines that you will be tasting on your tour have been hand selected by us from our favorite wineries in each region. The wineries chosen are high-end boutique wineries and the chosen wines are exclusive to the winery tasting rooms, with the exception of the Golden Rose!

We will have bottles available to purchase at the end of your trip to enjoy during your stay in Lake Tahoe or to take home to add to the rest of your collection. To learn more about our wines visit our website:
