Overview
Experience the Sonoma wine region in a unique way – on the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley. Jump aboard this historical replica of a San Francisco cable car and grab a seat on a special wine tasting adventure you will never forget. This open-air trolley will let you experience the picturesque vineyards like no other tour. On this tour, your friendly and knowledgeable guide will take you to four family-owned wineries for tastings. You will visit Sonoma's top historic landmarks and enjoy a gourmet picnic lunch during one of the scenic stops.

Must be 21 years or older to take this tour.
Highlights
  • Easy, full-day wine-tasting tour through Sonoma Valley
  • Wine-focused trolley ride lets you skip driving and planning
  • Sip celebrated varietals at four wineries and break for a picnic lunch 
  • Learn local history and folklore from the trolley’s narration
What to Expect
Find your trolley, a replica of a classic San Francisco cable car, midmorning at Sonoma Plaza. Then, meet your guide and grab a seat. As the trolley winds through the valley, you are free to focus on the view. Between stops, your guide shares local folklore and colorful history as you pass landmarks such as Mission San Francisco Solano and Bear Flag Monument. For lunch, a French country-style picnic lunch is served family style, allowing you to select your choice of salads, sandwiches, and desserts from local bistro, the Girl & the Fig. During the outing, you visit four different wineries—each selected based on its superior wines and pleasant atmosphere. You learn about quintessential California varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, chardonnay and pinot noir as you taste. (Tasting fees are not included.) Your tour ends back where it began.

We had a fabulous wine tour despite the trolley not working. We were in a comfy large van instead. Our tour guide did a great job of providing winery info while being very entertaining. Nice mix of wineries also. We would recommend this tour.
