My girlfriend and i were fortunate enough to get a beautiful sunny day between all the rain storms in Northern California. The driver was very knowledgeable about the history of Sonoma especially with its beginnings. The wineries were very nice. I liked how they sought out vineyards that use biodynamic processes. The visit to Benziger was the best which had... More

We had a lousy day for a wine trolley due to pouring down rain but was upgraded to a limo-van and that was so lovely and cozy. We enjoyed every 1 of the 4 wineries we tasted at and just had such a lovely time! Paul the driver was very accomodating and lunch provided was so tasty. I'd refer in... More

Thank you for the accolades. Such wonderful feedback. We are so glad we turned a rainy day into a ray of sunshine for you. Like the Postal Service, the Sonoma Valley Wine Trolley has a similar creed, "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor flooding stays these tours guides from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

My husband and I took the Trolley on January 30th and we truly enjoyed the whole experience. The wineries chosen were excellent choices. We went to two well known wineries and two small boutique wineries.We ended up joining one of the boutique wineries where you can only buy wines from the winery. Wonderful white wines. The winery , Imagery Estate... More

First Visit to Sonoma we booked the Trolley but due to rain were only passenger picked up in Cadillac Escalade and given private tour of Five WInery plus lunch. Driver and private appts were very attentive, educational, and considerate. I would highly recooment this for first time visitors or a group who wants to be together for a tour.

Tour was great!. We went to 4 different wineries (Imagery, Benziger, Chateau St. Jean, VJB) and all were great stops. Our guide on the trolley (Leith) was very informative. Scenery is beautiful and great for a couples experience. All tastings require payment (most places will waive the fee if you purchase a bottle), however all were well worth it. Would... More

We visited Sonoma in January, knowing that it would be a slower part of the season up there. We showed up for our tour on a rainy Saturday morning and were surprised to find out that we were the only two scheduled on the tour! Our driver, Leif, was super knowledgeable about the area, and winemaking in general. He was... More
