Returns to original departure point
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 a local favorite VJB Cellars. 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.

This tour was a great way to see Sonoma and visit some gorgeous wineries. Our tour guide, Paul, was knowledgeable and kept the tour fun! I’m not usually a person that enjoys touristy tours, but I would definitely recommend this one.

great wineries to visit with a variety of options. the only thing lacking diversity was the "provided lunch" choices. two different sandwiches and the bread was wayyy too thick. it's not a food tour i know but please provide more options, not vegan but you should cater to them too. also at VJB winery the guide didn't tell us the tables that were reserved were for us so we just kind of awkwardly assumed they were, luckily we were right.

Hands down, our tour guide, Paul! He exuded great, positive energy from the moment we stepped on the trolley. He's very knowledgeable, kind, welcoming, funny, and just the best! The wineries, of course, were great as well. Honestly though, Mayo winery probably had the worst tasting wine and you should find another winery to take place of that one. Overall though, it was a fabulous tour! Paul is AWESOME!
