Adventures In Napa Valley, California


Get on Board the Napa Valley Wine Trolley

Napa Valley Wine Trolley

Immerse yourself in the world of wine on your wine country vacation with a day aboard the Napa Valley Wine Trolley. Board a hand-built replica California Street Cable Car for your wine country adventure. Built off of the original blueprints of the popular San Francisco cable cars, the open-air vehicle will whisk you to the Napa Valley’s grand vineyard estates, subterranean wine caves, and quaint, cozy cellars. Tours include transportation to 3-4 wineries, a friendly tour guide who will provide information about the Napa Valley, and a wine country picnic lunch.

Enjoy a catered picnic lunch from The Girl and the Fig restaurant, including sandwiches on freshly baked bread, seasonal garden salads, and decadent desserts. Enjoy your meal at one of your stops, maybe on an outdoor patio overlooking vineyards or underground in a wine cave on a hot day.

The Classic Napa Valley Tour

Begin your morning at the Oxbow Public Market where your trolley will pick you up for a day of wine tasting at four local wineries. Explore the lower half of the Napa Valley, as your six-hour journey takes you around the charming towns of Napa, Yountville, Oakville, and Rutherford. The winery itinerary changes daily, but expect stops like Andretti Winery, Peju Winery, and the historic “gravity flow” architecture of Trefethen Winery. Following your Classic Napa Valley Tour, return to the Wine Trolley another day for the Premium Up Valley Wine Tour.

The Premium Up Valley Wine Tour

After your complimentary wine country breakfast at the Napa Winery Inn, meet up with your trolley at V Marketplace in Yountville. Take the scenic Highway 29 north to the upper valley for tastings in St. Helena and Calistoga. Take the Castle Tour at the beautiful Castello di Amorosa, which includes a two-hour tour around the Tuscan medieval castle and tasting (fee included!). Visit two other wineries on your upper valley tour like Beringer or Clos Pegase and enjoy a buffet-style lunch.

Tasting fees are not included on the trolley tours, but the Napa Valley Wine Trolley has formed special relationships with selected wineries to make your visit memorable and affordable. Most wineries offer special discounted tastings to trolley riders and provide a dedicated staff member to explain their history, varietals, and winemaking techniques.
