Over the past 6 weeks, hundreds of riders have chosen to leave their cars behind, request an Uber ride, and head out to enjoy some of the best varietals in the world with the peace of mind that a safe, reliable ride is available at the tap of a button, and a local Uber driver-partner is behind the wheel.


“In the Napa community, we are leveraging tech innovation to make higher quality wines with greater efficiency, to better help consumers find the wines they love, and with platforms like Uber, technology is directly promoting responsible consumption and safe driving on our roads.”
— David Duncan, CEO of Silver Oak and Chairman of the Napa Valley Vintners.

Here are the top 12 wine destinations for Uber riders this season:

Silver Oak

If you’re looking for seasonal farm-to-table food and wine pairings, visit Silver Oak in Oakville. Guests also rave about the winery, built on the original site where the winery was founded in 1972. Their Cabernets come from both Napa Valley and Alexander Valley vineyards, so you’ll get a little taste of everything. You can drop in for a casual tasting seven days a week, but be sure to reserve in advance to take advantage of their unique food pairings. Bonus: you get to keep your tasting glasses as a souvenir.

Mumm Napa

Looking for some sparkle? Mumm is known for their variety of sparkling wines, following traditional French techniques to create the best. Located a bit away from the tourist crowds along the Silverado Trail and open late (6pm!), Mumm’s motto is “Life’s moments deserve a celebration.” We tend to agree. And through the end of the year Mumm is offering 2 for 1 tastings Monday through Friday for Uber riders. Uber riders also get 15% off all gift shop purchases–just show your Uber receipt!

The winery has its own Italian market and Deli, featuring prawns, tri-tip, salmon, produce and more, and owners recommend you shop at the market for your own picnic or BBQ. And if you visit between Monday and Thursday, be sure to mention you’re an Uber rider—you’ll score a 2-for-1 wine tasting.
