Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley

Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley
The Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley has added a new route that  begins at the historic Sonoma Plaza, and meanders into the town of Glen Ellen and the Kenwood area, including stops at Benziger Family Winery, Imagery Winery, Paradise Ridge in Kenwood, and Deerfield Ranch Winery.

 This excursion is offered in addition to the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley's original route, which includes stops at four boutique wineries located in and around the town of Sonoma. Both tours are $99 per person and include a gourmet lunch catered by the acclaimed the girl & the fig restaurant.

 The Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley experience begins with a daily passenger pickup at 10:30 a.m. from the town of Sonoma's Historic Downtown Plaza. Arrangements for pickup at several Sonoma hotel locations can be made prior to 10:30 a.m
Tours on the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley began in the spring of 2011 and visitors have been raving about the experience from the beginning. The trolley is a hand-built replica of a California Street Cable Car that was used in San Francisco from the late 1890's to the early 1930's.

 Every detail from the all-wooden carriage to the solid brass bell is an authentic feature. It is an open-air cable car, allowing for a more sensory experience with unobstructed views, and the aromas of the vineyards, especially during crush.

 The wine trolley tours daily throughout the year, so guests are encouraged to dress warmly throughout the cooler months. You might like Old Town San Diego Trolley or San Francisco Open Top Bus Tour.
