Beaulieu Vineyards

In 1885, when Frenchman Georges de Latour’s wife, Fernande, first laid eyes on the land that would become their original Rutherford vineyard, she named it “beau lieu” or “beautiful place”, and Beaulieu Vineyard was born. It is one of the longest continually operating wineries in Napa Valley with over 100 years of rich history that speaks of a “beautiful place” and extraordinary people who shaped winemaking in America. Beaulieu Vineyard offers over 30 different wines with three different tasting rooms that allow you to choose the experience that is right for you: Main Tasting Room, Reserve Rom or Club Room.

These fantastic tunnels built years ago are still used today.

bay-areaLiving in the Bay Area comes with its perks. There is the weather, the topography, the food—and most would say that the people who live in the Bay Area are a perk within their self, too.

When you live in the Bay Area, you don’t need to worry about a long lazy afternoon, unless you want one of those, of course. There are things to do down just about every corner, from wine tastings to hiking, to shopping. You can even take a long drive to enjoy the scenery y of the area.

Whether this is your home or you are visiting the Bay Area for a short period of time, there are certain things to do in this region that you do not want to miss. Take advantage of the resources around you and make the most out of your time in the Bay Area.

Here are seven things to do that you won’t want to miss out on:

1. Livermore Wine Tours: Hire a limousine or party shuttle to take you on a Livermore wine country tour so you can see the region, taste the wine and get home safely.

2. Hike Tildon Park: Take a trip out to this 2,000+ acre wilderness park on the eastern side of San Francisco.

3. Alcatraz: This former prison is legendary, and supposedly haunted, yet many locals of the Bay Area have never bothered taking the time to see the sight.

4. Shopping: Downtown Walnut Creek is a premier destination for shopping and dining. Arrive in style and enjoy the day out of the house with friends by hiring transportation to bring you to this shopping area.

5. The 49 Mile Drive: Okay, so driving yourself 49 miles might not sound like pleasure, but on this designated scenic highway it is worth the gas mileage. Of course, hiring a driver to take you along the drive will only make it more enjoyable, and will allow you to concentrate on what is going on around you instead of just is what is on the road.

6. Farmer’s Markets: There are farmer’s markets all over the United States, but San Francisco and the Bay Area pretty much are known for having some of the best around. Bite into a juicy piece of fruit or grab some fresh veggies for your dinner while meeting people from the community.

7. Dublin’s St. Patrick’s Parade: This is the biggest St. Patrick’s Day festival west of the Mississippi. There are dancers, Irish-inspired food, live music and more.

Each of these events are fun attractions that help to make the Bay Area great. When planning any of these outings, think about your transportation options. Take advantage of shuttle and limousine services like those offered by Black Tie Transportation so you know you’ll always arrive in style and get home safe.

Napa Valley is known across the world as the premier destination for wine tasting. The grounds are beautiful, the food phenomenal and the wines are out of this world. Napa Valley is a destination worth heading to for those who live locally as well as those on the other side of the world. However, getting around Napa Valley can prove difficult.

Taking a wine tour of Napa Valley requires a vehicle. The roads are long and winding, and each vineyard is located within a pretty safe distance from the next, giving each the impression of standing on its own despite the neighborhood of wineries in the area.

The top rated wineries in Napa Valley include:

  • Truchard Vineyards
  • Storybook Mountain Vineyards
  • St. Clement Vineyards
  • Turnbull Wine Cellars
  • Rutherford Hill Winery

In Napa Valley alone there are over 200 wineries. Just outside of the area you can find even more.  Just deciding which wineries you want to visit is a challenge—actually going to them without the opportunity to enjoy yourself should be out of the question. If you plan to make a day of visiting these wineries, you’ll need reliable transportation to take you to and from your destination as you take advantage of all the fine tasting wines.

Black Tie Transportation Worldwide can make a wine tour of Napa Valley even more enjoyable, providing you and your friends with a safe transportation option from vineyard to vineyard. Black Tie Transportation offers safe and reliable chauffeuring in high-class vehicles equipped with state-of-the-art amenities. Each vehicle exudes the look and feel of high class, which makes this transportation system fit right in with the rest of Napa Valley.

Driving yourself around Napa Valley after a wine tasting tour is dangerous—especially so for those who aren’t familiar with the area. Police are known to linger outside of wineries to ensure that everyone leaving wine tastings is in good shape to drive. This can add a lot of stress to an otherwise enjoyable experience.

Black Tie Transportation gives you the chance to create your own wine tour. You choose the destination and the timing, and your vehicle works to your watch to make sure everyone is happy and on par with your schedule. Make the most of your time exploring the best wineries in Napa Valley by taking a wine tour with Black Tie Transportation.
