Jill, the Trolley Dolly was a delightful hostess. She was so informative, helpful, and ENTERTAINING! I enjoyed the variety of wineries and had the most fun with our fellow trolley riders.

Went on wine trolley with 4 couples. Had a great time. Visited 4 wineries. Had a tour at one that was really nice. The lunch was delicious. Only recommendation is to replace Bueno Vista winery with one that is more welcoming

Our tour driver was excellent! He told us a lot about the atea and it’s history. We loved the first two wineries visited. The last two were not as good.

Thank you for the comments. Some folks love the last two and some think the first are the best visist. It may have somethingng to do with the time of day and the wine consumed.
