After pickup from your designated meeting point in Yountville, your Napa Valley Wine Trolley tour takes you north on Highway 29, the scenic St Helena Highway. Make yourself comfortable in the open-air motorized trolley, and listen to commentary from your guide as you enjoy the fresh air and vineyard views during the drive up to the St Helena and Calistoga areas. After about 30 minutes, you’ll reach your first of three wineries, Castello di Amorosa.
Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the winery, including the medieval-style Tuscan castle, and then enjoy a wine tasting of varietals like pinot noir, sangiovese or award-winning chardonnay. (Note: This tasting ONLY is included.)
Next, head to Clos Pegase Estate, a "must visit" destination for those seeking a tranquil environment to enjoy renowned architecture and world-class wine. The winery design was completed by acclaimed architect Michael Graves 1987 and includes the iconic building, the idyllic grounds, and unique caves. Midday, you will enjoy lunch catered by French-bistro The Girl & the Fig in one of the various areas at the winery. Savor a buffet of sandwiches, side salads, and desserts, served family style so you can pick and choose among tasty offerings.
After a delicious wine tasting and lunch, hop back on the trolley for one more stop at another Napa valley winery. Since there are so many wineries in Napa, we keep this winery as an every changing rotation of the many eclectic wineries and tasting rooms that Napa has to offer.

The Napa wine trolley experience was great. Our tour guide was engaging and knowledgeable. Lunch was surprisingly delicious. Weather was perfect, making it a wonderful day.
Castle was informative and lovely! Other tastings on the stop weren’t included. Be sure to clarify prior to tasting at other stops
This was such an amazing experience. The initial welcome was so pleasant and professional. The driver was so knowledgeable and helpful. He made sure we were comfortable. He explained the processed and walked us to the greeters at the wineries for our tours. He explained which areas of the trolley would have more wind. (Recommend taking a windbreaker and pulling your hair back it will get messy!) The Castle was Amazing! So much so that we joined as members. The events that they hold sound like something we could not pass up. The weather was beautiful! The views were spectacular! The food and wines were amazing! We would definitely take this trolley again especially since we couldn't get our camera to work and now that it does we want to capture all those memories!! Thank you again for such a memorable day!
Neat castle and fantastic tasting. Trolley was a blast but just know your hair is going to get messy!
I would definitely recommend this tour. Eric was waiting for us when we arrived with champagne in hand. He was very knowledgeable of the area and allowed us to enjoy the day by taking care of everything. The wineries were great. The castle amorosa is a definite must see. Great tour!
If you want to take a really fun ride on an open trolley and drink some good wine this is a very fun excursion. Larger group of people so you do have to wait for everyone to gather up and lunch was served very late in the day. We had a good time and met new people... our guide was also fun and engaging.
An absolutely wonderful tour. The castle tour, wine tastings, lunch made our day special. Would recommend this tour to anyone
Loved riding the Wine Trolley through Napa! Appreciated the free ice-cold water bottles, and boxes to store our wine bottle purchases. Loved the delicious lunch served in the barrel room! Need to schedule additional bathroom breaks. The Castle Tour would be difficult for persons with impaired mobility. Beautiful picture opportunities at the Castle!
SO much fun! We enjoyed this tour so much. The guide was so knowledgeable and helped us decide which vineyards to visit and it ended with the Castello, where we purchased a case of wine. Highly recommend!
Fantastic day with spectacular sights. The driver was great and winery staff were very friendly.
Just be warned the pick up location is about an hour out of San Francisco and there are not a lot of public transport options.
Leif was great tour guide. Our first wine country tour and enjoyed it very much.
Tour was great! Leif, the driver, was knowledgeable and personable.....Winery's were accomodating and interesting. Would have rather spent time at another smaller winery then the Beringer winery....Overall it was a great day, even with the rain!!!
The castle even though it isn't 250 years old it was amazing and the wines very good. The driver James of the trolley was very cordial and informative. Over all experience excellent
The Castle is something you have to see and experience.....describing it doesn't do it justice. It's a fantastic place.
Overall, the ride on the trolley was a lot of fun......it was a beautiful day!
Wonderful full day tour of the Napa Valley. Our guide Joe was very entertaining and informative. We had a great time!
This was our introduction to Wine Country. It was fantastic. Joe, our tour guide, was very entertaining and informative. The Castle is a must-see. Clairdeen is okay. Beringer was beautiful and good wine.
Would certainly recommend this tour. The atmosphere on the trolley was fun.
