Sit back, relax and take in the beauty of the lake while sipping on exquisite wines hand chosen for your enjoyment on Lake Tahoe's only wine boat tour of the lake. Enjoy the beauty of Lake Tahoe during one of our 2-hour, small group, semi-private tours, while tasting Northern California's great wines, or customize your own booking to celebrate that special moment in your life! Operating May - October with up to 4 cruises a day and 7 days a week during our busy season. Tours will be aboard the beautiful "Golden Rose," a one-of-a-kind 1953 Chris Craft Venetian Water Taxi and will begin at the Tahoe Keys Marina in South Lake Tahoe, California circling Emerald Bay, cruising around Fannette Island and viewing the historic Vikingsholm castle all from the boat. Throughout the tour, we will be sampling 8 wines from various wine regions, heavily focused on Northern California wines. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase bottles of their favorite wines at the end of the tour to enjoy during the rest of their stay in Lake Tahoe or to take home to add to their collection. If you're not looking for a full bottle, we also offer wine by the glass as well. Water and soda are also available and complimentary to all of our guests. If someone in your party prefers beer, we can accommodate your guest if requested in advance. Please contact us for any special requests. FOOD OPTIONS: Stop by the Pirate's Chest Tahoe located at the Tahoe Keys Marina for grab-and-go items like sandwiches, cheese, dips, chips, salami, pasta salads and pre-made charcuterie to take with you on your wine tasting cruise! You'll find vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options as well. Just look for the life-size pirates and flags outside the store. As always, you're still welcome to bring your own snacks on the boat, if you prefer.
