We are excited to introduce the new Santa Maria Valley Wine Trolley, an innovative public transportation experience that will launch later in the month on Memorial Day weekend.
The Santa Maria Valley Wine Trolley will run every weekend from May 27 to October 1, allowing locals and visitors alike to enjoy unique round-trip excursions into the wine country multiple times each weekend day from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
The route begins in Santa Maria at Town Center West near the pedestrian bridge. Stops along the way include Costa de Oro Winery, Riverbench, and Cottonwood Canyon Winery. The trolley continues with two stops in Old Town Orcutt before returning to Town Center West at approximately 3:45 p.m.
The full route takes approximately 70 minutes. Guests may stop at wineries and locations of their choosing, then catch back up with the trolley as it completes the loop.
The cost per person (transportation only, does not include wine tasting) is just $10 in advance, or $18 when purchasing tickets at the trolley stops. Advance tickets may be purchased at the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce at 614 Broadway, as well as at several local wineries.
