When the call of the grape leads you to Missouri's wine regions, having someone to drive for you is a vintage idea. The recent addition of a trolley service in Hermann makes this idea more convenient.

The Hermann Trolley Co. picks passengers up at the Amtrak station for the trains' four daily stops and at all of the bed-and-breakfasts in the area. Then it makes stops at all of the area wineries. The company has two trolley cars running and plans to add a third by fall.

The trolleys run from 10 a.m. until 10:30 p.m. daily except Wednesday. Tickets are $10 for a day pass (until 7:30 p.m.) and $5 for a night pass (7:30 to 10:30 p.m.). Tickets are available at the Wine Valley Inn, Fourth and Market streets, or onboard the trolley.
