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.

They do for the first three for sure, can’t remember on the fourth, and we didn’t buy a bottle there so we just paid the tasting but it was only 10$ I believe. You’ll love it!

The cost is between $15 and $20 each stop. If you don't want to taste at a particular winery, you don't have to pay.
