Itinerary
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 6-hour 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.

First time in Sonoma

Since this was our first time visiting the area, this was a great option in order to visit several wineries. The included lunch was a nice bonus.

The Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley is a great way for a first time visitor to see the valley or as a refresher for those of us that live here.
