Butte County is excellent wine country, and many award-winning wines come from the wineries you’ll find here. A tour is a great way to explore and taste the local flavors!
Van Man Charters offers 3 excellent tour packages, not limited to these choices:
The Northern Tour
The Northern takes you to Vina to visit New Clairvaux Vineyard and the magnificent 800 year old stone monastery amid acres of vineyard. The monks who reside there labor to produce award-winning wines; absolutely stunning! Then through the gentle hills north of Chico to visit long-established and family owned Odyssey Vineyards. The grounds are beautiful and the facilities are artsy enough to compete with a museum!
The Eastern Tour
This tour takes you to the foothills to visit La Rocca Vinyards, a unique blend of modern and old world. Only organic, non-sulfite wines are produced here. An enjoyable place with great wines, and wonderful canyon and valley views there and back! Then to Bertagna’s Son-Kissed vineyards just south of Chico. Again, great wines, friendly vintners, highly recommended.
The Southern Tour
Surrounding the Oroville area are three jewels: Grey Fox Winery, Long Creek Winery, and Quilici Vineyards, all of which produce award-winning wines and provide great picnic facilities. Enough can’t be said about the quality these vintners produce and the beauty of the region!
Manton Valley Wine Country
Taste award winning wines from the beautiful foothills of Mt. Lasson in Manton, CA. There are 6 great wineries in the open countryside of Manton, a one and three quarter hour drive North East of Chico, and all six are neighbors on the same road. They are also all open on weekends 12-5pm (except Mt. Tehama Vineyards) and on weekdays by appointment. Make a day out of this!
Enjoy virtually exploring the Manton Valley wineries with these links: Alger Vineyards, Cedar Crest Vineyards, Indian Peak Vineyards, Mount Tehama Vineyards, Ringtail Vineyards, Shasta Daisy Vineyards
We can, of course, visit your desired winery destination if we’ve neglected to list it on our own package tours…but as a charter business, we can do anything the client desires. SONOMA, AMADOR, NAPA, GRASS VALLEY – LET’S GO!
