Sonoma/Napa Wine Tours (w/ food?)

I was hoping some of the Sonoma or Napa locals could provide me with a little help. We are looking for a car service or limo company that does a winery tour. Hopefully something that starts before lunch and takes us to 3-4 wineries with a good mix of tours, tastings and maybe food. An ideal itinerary would start around 11 with lunch at the first winery and end around 5 or 6. I have taken many of these types of tours in Tuscany but they are usually with bigger tour groups (10-12 people). Several companies in the Sonoma/Napa area seem to offer this service but figuring our which one is best has been pretty difficult.

After reading some of your great responses about the areas restaurants and wineries I wanted to give you as much information as possible. It is our first trip to the area and we have rented a house in Sonoma (5 min drive from the town plaza) for early November. We are meeting up with a couple that is very familiar with the area and we are all staying for 4 days. We were hoping to do the Limo/Car service trip on our first full day. We are not interested in doing a bus/van tour with others on this particular trip and cost for the limo/car service is not a concern. We are an eclectic group when it comes to wine so there isn't any one type we are focused on. We typically spend between $15-$75 a bottle depending on the occasion.

Any recommendations are appreciated!

    1. Verve in Napa is a possibility.

      The company owners have lots of style/class, and are connected to chefs. Might be fun.
