Sonoma Valley, California, offers more than 40 wineries within a 17-mile span and is an ideal getaway for wine lovers from all over the world. With so many unique tasting rooms and facilities, it’s impossible to visit them all in one trip – that’s why we recommend the Sonoma Wine Trolley. An authentic replica of a late 1890’s San Francisco cable car, the trolley is a great way to visit multiple wineries at once. Guests can take a 6-hour tour through wine country and experience relaxing wine tastings, fascinating historic sites, and awesome entertainment along the way! The next time you stay at the Honor Mansion, take a ride on the Sonoma Wine Trolley and experience Wine Country like never before.
What You’ll See on the Sonoma Wine Trolley
Each day at 10:15 AM, the Sonoma Wine Trolley picks up guests from Sonoma Plaza and takes them on a journey full of rich history, scenic views, and, of course, wine! You’ll meet fellow wine tasting enthusiasts and will learn what makes Sonoma Valley such a popular destination for wine lovers and foodies alike. Daily tours include:
- Pick-up from Sonoma Plaza
- Friendly and knowledgeable tour guides
- Tastings at four Sonoma County wineries
- Tours of historic landmarks including the Sonoma and Swiss hotels, the Bear Flag Monument, the Sonoma Development Center, the town of Glen Ellen, and more

Along with Pinot Noir and Zinfandel, Sonoma’s most famous signature wines, guests on the Sonoma Wine Trolley will have the opportunity to try reds, whites, and sparkling wines from a variety of world-class wineries. Each tasting is held in a private setting with a winery representative who will explain the varietals and the history of the winery. You’ll also have many opportunities to take pictures of the cellars, tasting rooms, and vineyards, so be sure to bring a camera!
If you prefer a more customized tour, the Sonoma Wine Trolley offers 6-hour private charters for weddings, corporate events, family outings, and everything in between. The cable car comes fully equipped with a state-of-the-art sound system as well as coolers and bottled water, so you can have an incredible and comfortable experience that you and your guests will never forget.
