Skip the stress of driving and navigating among dozens of different wineries, and let the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley whisk you through the vineyards. Make your way to the historic Sonoma Plaza midmorning, where you’ll meet your guide and climb aboard the beautiful trolley — a lovingly created replica of a vintage San Francisco cable car. Take a seat and enjoy the fresh valley air streaming through the windows as you cruise through Sonoma’s rolling hills and renowned vineyards.

Stop at three different wineries hand-picked for their welcoming atmosphere and excellent wines, and sample classic California varietals like chardonnay, pinot noir, cabernet sauvignon and merlot (tasting fees not included). Winery hosts will be on hand to provide tasting notes and background on the wines you enjoy.

Midday, stop for a picnic lunch catered by French-country bistro The Girl & the Fig, a local favorite. Savor a gourmet spread of sandwiches, side salads and desserts, served family style so you can pick and choose among the tasty offerings.

Throughout the day, your lively host provides commentary on passing attractions and brings to life fascinating chapters of California history. Learn about Sonoma’s past as a Spanish mission and hear local folklore as you roll past historic landmarks including the Mission San Francisco Solano, the Bear Flag Monument, General Vallejo's Soldier Barracks, the Sonoma and Swiss hotels and the charming town of Glen Ellen.

Your fun and historic tour concludes back at Sonoma Plaza.

Please note: This tour is for those 21 years or older.

Dave was a great guide. Picked us up at the lodge at Sonoma renaissance hotel and dropped us off. Went to 4 wineries with a brief tour at 3 and great longer tour with wine caves and picnic lunch at Buena Vista with Alicia(she was fabulous too). Picnic lunch was good as well. Well organized, full day tour of Sonoma wine country with your own knowledgeable DD! Highly recommend. Only downside is you have to pay a wine tasting fee at vineyards but you do get a discount at some

I have been in the San Francisco area for 3 years now, and done a couple of the wine tours. This one is truly a treat! We had a great time listening to the history of Wine Country while riding to the various wineries. The wineries were so charming, welcoming, and delicious! Thank you Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley for the great memories!!

The Sonoma wine trolley was a great experience and a unique way to explore Sonoma. Paul was such a great tour guide, he had the whole day planned for us. He gave us some history on Sonoma, scheduled all of our stops for the day, and provided a great tour. I highly recommend taking this tour if you are in the Sonoma Valley area.

The trolley ride was a really nice way to see Sonoma and our driver was very knowledgeable and helpful! We thoroughly enjoyed the vineyards they took us to and the tours offered at the Ravenswood and Buena Vista Winery’s. We would definitely recommend this tour and think the cost was reasonable.

Sonoma Wine Valley Tour
, Aug 2018
What a wonderful trip despite the fact that we visited 4 wineries 3 of which were fantastic and 1 at which we did nothing but sit and drink wine which was a waste of time especially since the wine was terrible. Also don't be surprised by the elective xtra charges at each winery if you want to taste the wine which was $20 per person at 3 places and $10 dollars at one in additional to the price for the tour. This was a tad more than advertised, would probably cost less if we drove around ourselves. But having never been in that area before I have no regrets but would plan differently if I know what I do now.

Ride was extremely bumpy... this should be included in the description. I have had a mastectomy in the last two years and I was in a lot of pain for the next couple of days. Also, the steps on the trolley are very high, my mother is 77, this was problematic. This needs to be included in the descri
