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! On your tour, you will start with a glass of bubbly to begin your journey. Next, you will taste 8 different wines, including both whites and reds. Included in the tasting will be wine from the world-famous Napa Valley but also wines from Placer, Nevada, Amador, El Dorado, Monterrey counties and the Central Valley. 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. All of this will be on a semi-private tour aboard the one-of-a-kind vintage Golden Rose, the 1953 Chris Craft Venetian Water Taxi docked at the Tahoe Keys Marina.

Must be 21 years of age for daily scheduled tours. Please let us know if your designated driver is your under 21 child so we can accommodate you. For young kids, we recommend Lake Tahoe Sitters so you can enjoy some relaxing adult time with your friends or significant other. Lake Tahoe Sitters is CPR and First Aid certified as well as Livescan fingerprinted and has completed an FBI background check.

Since the Golden Rose is fully enclosed, our tours are rain or shine, however, the course of the tour may be altered due to lake water conditions. In the rare event that your tour must be canceled or rescheduled due to safety on the water, we will update these details on our Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as contact you via email.
